It's been a long time since I have posted anything so figured I better get moving! With the soaps and lotions, Memory Bears and now the little girls clothing it is very very busy! Here are the links to all 3 sites. Luvy Bear Soaps and Scentsations
Memorial Teddy Bears and More By Ruth
and last but not least: Dolly and Me Fashions
By the way "Memorial Teddy Bears and more by Ruth" was one of the feature artist in "Teddy Bear & Friends" magazine the June 2012 issue - article is "Beyond Mohair". They were featuring artists who work in mediums other than fur such as leather, cottons etc and since I have used leather, sleeping bags and other "odd" materials I was chosen to be in the article. This is a very big honor for me and I pinched myself to make sure it's real! LOL

I have been busy with the bears and all. I have even come up with a larger bear (approx 28 inches). Many people asked for larger Memory Bears and now I have one.

A note of Luvy Bear Soaps and Scentsations: I will be offering products in larger sizes (no longer going to be doing the small retail bottles) everything that will stay in the line is being put in larger containers to sell at wholesale prices to retail customers! Just think you can now buy lotions, soaps, scrubs etc in larger quantities and not have to be a wholesale customer! I am aiming to have the website all changed over by the end of September 2012. Please bear with me as I have to make these changes in between customer orders and while designing a few extra special dresses for the Dolly and Me Fashions site. Thanks and check back again for more updates!

Awareness Ribbon Soaps Debut at Luvy Bear Soaps and Scentsations!

Everyone I know has someone in their life that has had to fight Cancer if not themselves. To help raise funds to kick Cancer's butt I have come up with an exclusive handmade Awareness Ribbon Soap Loaves a portion of every sale will be given to the American Cancer Society. All of the Awareness Ribbon Colors are available in these loaves and you even have your choice of body safe fragrances. Awareness Ribbon Soap Loaves are a generous 28 ozs. in weight and 3 inches across - Cost $28.95 and includes FREE SHIPPING to the US. (I cut my loaves into 12 bars weight is 2.33 oz. each and I priced them at $3.50 each.)

Your loaf will be uncut (you can easily cut the loaf with a kitchen knife) and comes wrapped in cellophane topped with pink curling ribbon and a Hope Ribbon Sticker in the same color as the ribbon insert. Awareness Ribbon Loaf is made from vegetable formula natural glycerin soap. If you find this loaf anywhere else you can be assured it was made by Luvy Bear Soaps and Scentsations as this particular loaf was designed and totally handmade by me. There is no mold available for purchase for the ribbon insert I had to design it myself. Please note that due to the handmade nature of the Awareness Ribbon Soap Loaves the insert may be slightly off center but that is what makes it so unique. ORDER YOURS EARLY! Remember that October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

Flower Petals for Dipping and / or decorating for a Wedding

Luvy Bear Soaps & SCENTsations has purchased Rose Petals for dipping from one company for many years and now it seems that they are no longer interested in keeping my business - I have tried several phone calls - emails and even posting to their blog to no avail - they removed the negative comment and still didn't get in touch with me to try to fix the problem!
They have taken the money for the petals but I have not received the merchandise nor have they issued a refund for non receipt of the petals. I am now in the process of doing a chargeback to get my money back.
If you are a soap maker (or doing a Wedding) and are purchasing petals on your own for dipping or decorating your tables and would like to know who this company is so that you can avoid being ripped off please Contact Me I will not post the name here so that I can not be held liable for slander (even though it should be out there for everyone to read). I have heard from other people that they have had problems with this company as well - which is a shame as they used to reliable. So it is not just me having an issue. If you are one of my customers who orders dipped petals please be assured that I am in the process of finding a new source for petals. I have several colors still in stock but if you need several bags of one color I suggest you contact me before ordering at (740)852-3090 if it's only 1 bag of a color then you are safe to place your order without contacting me first as I am working to remove the colors that are temporarily not available from the website: ORDER DIPPED ROSE PETALS Hopefully I will have all my usual colors back in stock soon. I will try to repost to this blog as soon as it is completed. Thank you for your patience and understanding. Ruth Blackwell, owner

The case of the messed up Studio 1737 - I hope no one else gets one of these!

I purchased a Studio 1737 in February (actually 2 of them - one for myself and one for our College Bound daughter). Well Needless to say it has been a royal pain to deal with. They have switched out drives etc several times an then the whole computer and now switching out drives etc again. This message here is to say "Buyer beware - DON'T buy a Studio 1737. I've been very patient but my patience is gone. We used Dell for years now I wouldn't have another one if you gave it to me! Before you buy a new computer read, read, and read again. You may be sorry if you don't!
