ArtFire Collection: Cotton Candy by YourTime

The ArtFire Collections are proving to be a lot of fun- not only for the now addicted curators, the artisan & suppliers featured, and the viewers who are now flocking to the many Collections on display.

Today's highlighted Collection has a fun title & theme and some beautiful products to show off. Cotton Candy was curated by YourTime...

... and there is indeed a lot of eye candy to feast on. I particularly adored bohowirewrapped's garden angel pendant with kyanite and ruby as well as SpoiltBratz' adorable tam style dog hat. Click HERE to visit COTTON CANDY on

I was delighted to have a product featured in this fine Collection... one of Brizel Supplies' sash fabrics from Guatemala...

Lemonade Fizz, aka n.45, featuring a fantastic central pink ikat motif... flanked by thin red & black accent stripes and olive green & lemonade yellow motif stripes... edged by multicolor thin stripes of pale blue, camel, blue, green, pink... is yummy, yes ?

These fabrics are fine quality hand woven textiles... reclaimed from Las Manos, a business that through FAiR TRADE principles commissioned their creation directly from the weavers in Guatemala. Las Manos went out of business some years ago... and I 'inherited' (so to speak) approx 80 different rolls with distinct designs & colors. Come visit Brizel Supplies... these wide ethnic cotton sash fabrics are perfect for belting, costumes, decorative trim, guitar straps and many other embellishing projects...

And continuing on the delicious side of things... I went to visit YourTime's ArtFire studio and discovered these:

All natural Pink Strawberry Sugar Cube Scrubs

"Yummy Strawberry flavored Pink Sugar Scrub Cubes are perfect for gently scrubbing and exfoliating your skin, and leaving it baby smooth. Grapeseed oil and soap combine with pure organic sugar in these beautiful scrubs.

Sugar is a natural exfoliator that is much gentler than crushed nuts or shells etc., so you can easily use it all over your body, without fear of over scrubbing."

If you haven't visited YourTime's studio yet, you are in for a treat ! Wear your bib before entering these realms and when you are ready click HERE... What you will find is more delicious looking luxury spa treats as well as appetizing handmade artisan jewelry.

In the artisan's own words: "I personally make every piece of handmade jewelry you see here, as well as each small batch of bath and body products. I use the finest ingredients I can find such as pure Shea butter, fresh honey from our local beekeepers and extra virgin olive oil from Italy. I buy organic and sustainable supplies wherever I can. Most spa products are completely vegan, and everything is vegetarian."

ENJOY and thanks so much for a lovely Collection feature !
