Backyard Bird Count

bird and berries 2, originally uploaded by SoapChickAsh.

Looking for something fun and easy to do with your kids this February? On February 13th though February 16th the annual Great Backyard Bird Count will be held across the country. This event has bird experts and bird watchers alike helping to track bird populations. Anyone can get involved in this and can actually help scientists get an idea of how bird populations are thriving.

All you (and or your little budding scientists) have to do is take a few minutes per day and count the numbers and types of birds that you see during that time. You can track the birds that visit your backyard or even go to a favorite spot like a park and take the count there. Go to this website:

and read more about this fun event. There is an online tally sheet for you to fill out each day. You can even go online and see the birdcount report for your area. For those of you obsessed with photography as Tiff and I are, you can snap photos of the birds and upload them to the website, too.

So, go forth and count! And know that you are doing something great for our feathered friends and the community.

Good Smellin’ Soap!

soap connoisseur, originally uploaded by SoapChickAsh.

I caught my daughter in the act of blatant soap thievery today after her bath. She grabbed a bar of Night, Night, Baby! soap that I left on a table in my bedroom. Earlier in the day I was trying to take a photo of the soap as part of something Tiff and I are working on and left it there. (Left it there like a novice! All parents know if you don’t want your kids to take it, break it, or stick it up their nose you should put it away!) When she saw that she’d been caught her words were, “this is some good smellin’ soap!” Ah, yes, RoRo…flattery does get you everywhere. Especially to this soapmaker!

That reminds me, I now need to update Tiff that we are another Night, Night Baby soap down.

Happy Inauguration!

Hello Everyone!
Just a little note from us SoapChix on this very exciting day. We hope everyone is finding a way to celebrate and enjoy this momentous occasion. My daughter, who is so happy to be the same age as one of the Obama girls, participated in a Obama Pajama party at her elementary school today in honor of the big event. That’s one way to celebrate! We hope that you find your own way, too.

Happy Inauguration! And good luck, President Obama!

(The photo above…..a future president, perhaps? On this day it sure seems possible.)

Peppy Mint soap as gifts

That’s what Ash and I were as we prepared all the holiday orders to ship out! Just thinking of all those fabulous products going out to make someone’s holidays extra special made us tingle all over.

Countdown to Christmas

Waiting for Shoppers, originally uploaded by SoapChickAsh.

I, like most of you, am in the midst of a half-crazed holiday shopping frenzy. I was birthday-Christmas-Hanukkah shopping this past weekend when I ran across this cute Santa in the photo. I couldn ‘t decide if he was bored and hoping for some cute wild children to hop in the rocking chair with him and share their wish lists, or if he was hiding from the same throng of shoppers that I managed to get away from. At any rate, let it serve as a reminder to all of us that we need a break from all this Holiday stuff from time to time.

And in case you didn’t know, we at Serendipity Bath Co. make some great products that you can help you unwind, relax and de-stress. :) Check out our website at

Tie One On!

Ro’s Apron, originally uploaded by SoapChickAsh.

Our dear sweet friends Terri and Serena at The Farm Chicks have a great blog where you can read about all sorts of fun projects, great recipes, vintage collectibles, etc. They recently posted about National Tie One On day (coming up on November 26th) which is a day celebrating aprons. Tiff and I are all about cute vintage aprons and have found them to be super useful to wear at shows. The apron pockets make great places to stash calculators, sales books, chocolate, beer bottles….well….so, um.

So here’s to the nostalgia and happy practicality that aprons represent. Go forth, put on a cute apron and muster up all the charm and attitude that you can! (As my 3 year old did in this photo….why she has it up near her armpits is anybody’s guess!).

And thanks, Farm Chicks for letting us know about it!

Holiday Soap, originally uploaded by childplay.

…and by popular demand, I might add. So many of you wanted to know if we’d make the Cinnamon Orange soap that we delightedly ran to our kitchens and whipped some up. The Peppy Mint soap is back with a vengence, too and it is heavenly! These yummy soaps are only here for a few more weeks so claim yours now. Check out our website at

Breathe deep and enjoy! The holidays just got a bit more wonderful!

Just a friendly reminder from the Soap Chix (and their chicklets!) to get out and vote tomorrow. Your voice is important, your opinions matter and this is your chance to be heard.

The two little ones in the photo are my two best reasons for getting out and voting.

Lemon + Spearmint = Joy!

Bath Bombinos, originally uploaded by SoapChickAsh.

Hello! Hello!
Just a quick post today about how fabulous the combination of Lemon and yummy spearmint is. Essentially (pun intended) it is truly invigorating and uplifting. I am not a morning person so this is my go-to scent when I am trying to perk myself up. I use the sugar scrub in this scent and it…is….heaven. It is also really great to use the Lemon Spearmint bombinos, shown in the photo, as a foot soak for weary feet. Oh so relaxing!

I bring this up now folks because I know how crazed everyone’s schedules are this time of year. I’m in the middle of planning two birthday parties, Thanksgiving, two family trips, helping with a school Fun Fair, a silent auction, taking photos for a friend, did I mention Christmas shopping?……darn this list! I really want to enjoy this time of year and not just “get through it.” So I’m going to remember to pamper myself during this crazy time and will be raiding our own supplies of Lemon Spearmint bombinos….and sugar scrub….and soap…you get the picture.
