Maria's Space 1st Mother's Day Giveaway

Mother's are very special people.
They are warm, caring, loving, nurturing, funny, optimistic and beautiful!

I found the most delicate, different, beautiful item to represent my very first Mother's Day Giveaway.

Thanks to Diana of Enchanting Soap Favors I am able to offer to one of my readers the sweetest gift for your mom, grandmother, friend, or even yourself.


Diana's shop Enchanting Soap Favors, has beautiful soap sculptures that would make stunning gifts and favors.

Whether you are hosting a bridal shower, baby shower, christening, wedding or baptism these are soap creations are the perfect favor.

Here is my interview with Diana

Tell us a little bit about yourself? Well, my name is Diana. I am married to a wonderful man and I am a mother of two. I have a three year old son, and a 1 year old daughter. Of course, my kids are my life! I am currently a stay at home mom who believes it is the greatest most rewarding job ever, though very challenging!! I love to spend time with family and friends. I am truly blessed to have such a wonderful family! I am a woman of faith and love the Lord with all my heart.

When did you start creating these beautiful flowers from soap? I began crafting as a child, but did not begin working with soap up until about 3 years ago. I love the art of soap making! I've created many things out of plaster and clay in the past, but soap creating is definitely my first love...it looks amazing, smells amazing, and is very useful!

Where do you get your inspiration? Different artists, many of whom are on Etsy, truly inspire me the most. I am so amazed at the extraordinary talent most artisans here on Etsy posses. It's incredible!

What do you love most about what you do? The thing I love most about what I do is being a part of ones special event. I love that I create a memory...

In 10 years I want.......In 10 years, I hope I can look back and say that I made a difference in this world! Absolutely!

Thank you Diana for being so honest and amazing.

Aren't they the cutest? Just hit each picture and you will be taken over to her site for more information.

    SOAP.... 1 Duo Ducky Wedding SOAP Favor / Bridal Gift - Bride and Groom


    Description
    This absolutely adorable wedding/shower soap favor makes a wonderful gift. It measures approximately 5" from left to right. Both ducks (not hand carved) measure approximately 2" The bride duck is wearing a handcrafted beaded veil and a beaded necklace with a charm that reads "To Love an to Cherish." The groom duck is wearing a black bow.
    The base, also made of soap, is hand carved. The detail is amazing! This favor is scented with a cucumber melon fragrance (other fragrances are also available). Please keep in mind that the ducks are not hand carved and they are flat on their backside. Favors will arrive wrapped in tulle as shown in secondary picture with a bow attached. 1 favor is included.
