Etsy Shop Update: Concentrated Refills Get a Facelift

Refill TrioIt’s been a while since I updated this old blog thing, but here I am! Just updating my Etsy store and thought I’d throw a note to you guys to let you know about my concentrated refills. I had them in the store previously, but never liked the design and bottle, etc. Seems like a dumb reason to take down a product, but since my day job is a designer, I take this stuff seriously!

The refills now come in glass amber bottles and the labels are much nicer I think. Each one still refills two of my cleaner bottles (or any 16 oz bottle you have lying around the house) or one large 32 oz bottle. Great way to save money and still use safe, healthy cleaning products in your homes. Check em out!

New Product, Wedding Favors!

Wedding Soaps

It’s been a while, but I have a new product now available in my Etsy store, wedding favors! If you don’t have five save the dates on your fridge right now, not only do I envy you, but you may not yet realize that it’s wedding season. That means party planning, picking out dresses, registering at Bed […]

New Soaps and Huge Sale!


  Christmas started really early this year. I cringed when I realized one day I was singing a Christmas song I had just heard on a Target commercial, the day after Halloween!! I refuse to decorate or do anything before my favorite holiday, Thanksgiving. But after you’ve gorged and napped and eaten cold leftovers out of the […]

The Clean Seed Fall Favorites

These have just the right amount of cider flavor and spice.

Fall is here! Leaves are changing, it’s getting dark earlier, and everything you can possibly fathom now comes in pumpkin spice flavor. That means it’s also time for comfort food! With the cooler weather and rain here in Portland, I’ve started making soups again after a long hot summer. Our house is decorated with gourds and scary movies (the good […]

Better than waking up to an alarm!

Easy Garlic Dill Refrigerator Pickles


This is our first real summer in Portland since last summer consisted of trips to IKEA, yard sales and busting open windows that were painted shut so we could cool down our 92 degree bedroom. Now that we’re settled in and worked our butts off all Spring picking weeds, we have a pretty bad-ass vegetable […]

Buffalo Soy Curl Tacos With Homemade Corn Tortillas


I had never even heard of a soy curl until I moved to Portland. I hit up the Homegrown Smoker Vegan BBQ food cart last summer shortly after we moved here, and got the BBQ Soy curl sandwich. It was life changing to say the least. I immediately bought soy curls at the super cool […]

If you remember my post from a few months ago, you know that I was growing leeks in my garden this winter. Well, out with the old and in with the new! I pulled all the leeks and planted tomatoes, sugar snap peas and lettuce. But now I have about 30 leeks stored in a […]
