At Reef Botanicals this is where Eric and Larissa sell their handcrafted artisan pamper yourself products. I added the artisan, because I think most of it looks like art. I also added pamper yourself products because all the goodies you'll find here are all that you'll need for that sweet bath you keep telling yourself you'll treat yourself too. One thing sticks out about their products and that all of it from the base to the fragrance is all natural ingredients. So natural that most of the products are suitable to vegans. Inside Reef Botanicals you'll find soap, bath salts, candles, and even a men's line of bath products.
The Serenity Fizzy Bath Bomb is so pretty. I don't think I'd use it because it's just too pretty.
Now because I have lip balm everywhere, I just had to show off the Orange You Glad I am Your Honey Lip Balm. Great Valentine's Day gift, right?
Want to know more about Reef Botanicals? Follow them on Facebook, Twitter, and keep up with them on their blog.
Switching gears we'll now visit Fabric of My Mind. This is definitely a shop that weaves the many different crafts that occur outside of the powder room. Here you'll find handmade accessories, photography, toys, and even patterns and tutorials. Wear glasses when you're on the computer? Keep them protected from all that desk clutter with this floral eyeglass case. I love to color. It's such an ageless activity. I'd love to make the other kids jealous with these mini star crayons! Hop on over to Fabric of My Mind and see what goodies you can find to make the other kids jealous of you.

Rasmussen Gems also provides services that I do not often find in the handmade community. He can provide jewelry repair services. He is well trained from attending the International Gem Society, Gemological Institute of America, and Penn Foster Career School to learn jewelry design and repair.
Rasmussen Gems also provides gem identification and appraisal services. Gems can be hard to determine - at least for me. Especially the real from the fake or because gems are naturally occurring, the color variants can maybe lead to a different stone in particular. I've run into that a couple of times. I'll think a stone is one gem, but in fact, it's something else.
I've never heard of picture granite. I must live under a rock!
Strawberry Quartz Oval
I just love this Faceted Topaz ring. The colors, the feminine qualities.
Rasmussen Gems also blogs! Join him.

|There's no cold air getting in this cap!|
|My favorite color!!!|
Now if crocheting wasn't busy enough work to keep a shop full, LisianBlue then becomes Reflections. Reflections is a stained glass and painted glass shop. Reflections is one of a kind because very few, and I mean few, are ever reproduced. Reflections wants your stained glass or crafted glass creation truly unique. My favorite section in this shop is the glass candle holders. Very out of the box and unexpected. I'll let the picture speak for itself.
For the jewelry makers out there, she also makes really pretty glass pendants including handpainted! I especially like the detail in this domino art pendant.
If you want to keep in touch with LisianBlue and Reflections - (Remember, they are the same person) but I do wonder if she's a Gemini can be found on Twitter and maintains a blog as well.
