Mangham Made

Summer time is here ! 

As some of you may know, we recently moved cross country from California to Pennsylvania. (more to come on this topic)

We’ve been enjoying ourselves and exploring more of PA and surrounding areas, little by little. I recently discovered the travelers notebook, and just writing down all of our life experiences on this amazing book that i’ve been carrying around everywhere we go – because you never know what new things you’ll find or want to write down. However, I needed a tote or bag to carry it around along with stamp and other accessories… that’s where Mangham Made came along and made my life a bit love you more colorful and organized. Here is a little bit about Karen. 

Hi! I’m Karen! I started sewing as a hobby while waiting for my husband to come home from work and to make things for my children. I worked in a corporate office until my son was born. After a year staying at home I decided to open an etsy shop! I opened my shop this year and it’s been such a rewarding experience.

I live in the mountains of Utah with my husband and my two littles! I’m a stay at home mom by day and stay up all night sewing for this small business and I love every minute!

Karen sent me her adorable Tote purse. There are so many reasons why to love this tote. It has the faux  vegan leather bottom to keep the bag nice and firm, and easy to wipe if you so happen to place it on the floor or get it dirty. The straps are a good size to where you can handhold it or wear it over the shoulder. It’s really roomy to use for just about anything (crafty materials, mommy bag, picnic bag). It’s constructed well and made with lot’s of love. The hardest part is choosing the fabric of your choice. Mangham Made Tote

I also received an adorable wristlet. What I love about the wristlet is that I can put my debit card, money, cell phone and take it on the go quickly without having to take a big bag or I can use it inside my tote as a add on. Mangham Made is known for her cute little bows on the zipper part of the pouch adding an adorable look to all her pouches. The wristlet also has the faux leather which is something I absolutely love because I always tend to dirty the bottom of my pouches before anything else. Mangham Made Wristlet Lastly, I recently bought my daughter and I. The Mangham Made mini pouch. It’s so stinkin adorable. It’s small and cute and perfect addition to add to any purse or tote. Don’t you just love the boba 🙂 Mangham MiniI have a pouch addiction. I really do and I realize that. #sorrynotsorry

Jodi’s Soapbox Handcrafted Soap Review

Jodi the WAHM behind Jodi’s Soapbox has become one of my great friends. We met through and since then have kept in touch. Jodi is a (HSMG) Handcrafted Soapmakers Guild Member currently doing a lot of shows, markets, and festivals she will be at The Apple Butter Festival in Berkeley Springs.

Jodi sent me three of soaps Jasmine Vanilla, Real Aloe & Cucumber, Satsuma.

Let me start of by saying since these soap bars arrived at my home, my sewing room smells amazing. I don’t need to light up my candles, these soap bars do the job. I was very excited to try them out. Each soap bar comes with their written ingredients.

Jodi’s Handcrafted Soaps

  • They are about 4 oz each give or take some.
  • I believe they are a perfect size, fits nicely in your hand.
  • The colors Jodi’s uses are amazing, they are appealing to the eye.
  • They lather up very nicely, ( picture shown below).
  • The feeling I had on my skin during and after using the soap was a soft feeling, my skin felt soft and smelled amazing
  • My soaps came with a crochet dishcloth which first thought was “wow amazing” just what I needed !
  • Love the different looks Jodi does on her soaps, colors, textures, creativity, scents they visually look delish not to mention they smell amazing.
  • Price is  $6 each  which, in my opinion is a great price for a handcrafted soap that will last you about a month or even longer and is made with amazing oils, scents, and will leave your skin feeling amazing, well worth your money.

 Overall Jodi’s Soapbox is amazing she has great customer service. There is a variety of scents for everyone to choose from and it’s always a rewarding feeling that you are buying handmade product espicially from an awesome WAHM like Jodi. If you have any questions as far as her soaps go be sure to comment on her facebook she would be more then happy to answer any of your questions or concerns.
