Why Buy Handmade

February 6, 2019


hands in shape of heart

With a new year comes new opportunities to learn and grow. I'm having so much fun running farragio and am excited to continue learning and growing as I develop my business in the new year.

I was pondering this morning what it means to buy handmade. Sure, there are the economic aspects of it, but it goes deeper than that. Even as I make handmade items I also shop handmade because I like contributing to other artisans who are just as excited and having just as much fun honing their craft and sharing their love of creating.

It brings commerce down to a personal level and I think brings people closer together. The friends I've made and re-connected with has been another fun part of being in this unique business.

A huge thank you to all of you who have made this such a great experience and I look forward to more opportunities to work and share in this experience with you. Here's to a fun and exciting new year!

Unique Furniture Finds On Etsy

January 24, 2019


My other passion, besides creating skin care products, is decorating. And it's funny how tastes can change through the years. I'm really starting to get into modern, industrial, retro, and other styles of decorating. I enjoy 'window shopping' for furniture on the internet and was perusing Etsy recently and found these lovely, unique finds.

Running a skin care business takes a lot of energy, so to get my day started right I drink this delicious and nutritious breakfast smoothie that my husband and I have been making for years. I thought I would share the recipe with you, but feel free to change it up to include whatever fruits and vegetables you like. (Shhhh, don't tell my husband but I've even sneaked squash into it.)

DIY Update A Brass Light Strip Fixture

January 15, 2019


Where you perform your skin care routine is just as important as your skin care routine itself. So I decided to see if I could do something to the outdated Hollywood-style brass light strip fixture. It turned out to be so incredibly easy, I wish I'd done it a long time ago.

I've included detailed instructions below. If you try this project, or something similar, I'd love to hear about your experience. Be sure to leave me a comment and let me know.

No-Bake Peanut Butter Chocolate Clusters

When I'm not busy working on my skin care line and my sweet tooth strikes, these peanut butter chocolate clusters are the perfect choice and so easy to make. And for the little amount of effort that goes into them, they're surprisingly delicious.

They're great in the summer when it's hot and you don't want to turn the oven on, but they also satisfy in the winter, because hey, when isn't it a good time for chocolate and peanut butter???

Give them a try and let me know in the comments ...
