Welcome to The Sleepy Valley Co.

I make Handmade soap using the traditional Cold and Hot process method. Traditionally made soap is rich in glycerine which is produced naturally during the soap making process. This is one of the reasons why handmade soap is so much more luxurious to use, I only use natural ingredients and pure essential oils. There are no chemicals or synthetics used in my soaps. All of the packaging for my products are fairly traded, eco friendly and bio-degradable. Be warned - once you have used a bar of handmade soap, it is difficult to be satisfied using anything else on your beautiful skin!

Spring Craft Fair @ Coventry Transport Museum

These pics were taken at the weekend when we took part in the Spring Craft Fair @ Coventry Transport Museum. We could only attend on the Sunday but it was a weekend event.

I have got to say what a fantastic Venue!! The organiser Julia Gandy did a absolutely cracking job!! ALL the stalls were handmade which was great because we have attended craft/gift fairs and found that it is just bought in tat and not very original. But this event was very original no two stalls looked the same. There were a lot of people coming in and the atmosphere had such a great buzz. I was told by a couple of the other stallholders (Who were lovely :) I might add) said that Saturday was a lot busier so I was a little disappointed that I hadn't been able to be there :(. Also as the Transport museum was free entry Dave took himself off for a while to take a gander round the cars which pleased him no end ;)
This was also the first stall where I have showcased my new items, bath bombs, cocoa cubes, scented pouches and fairy dust. I have to say the cocoa cube were flying out :)
Overall this has been the most professional, well organised event I have taken part in and I would definitely do it again if the opportunity became available and I would clear my dairy to make sure I could do both days Heehee
Well Done Julia Gandy!! xx

  1. Nice way to decorate your walls. I have never done that. My effort to beautify the walls in my house was to order big-sized canvas prints from wahooart.com, from images of western art. I use the same angel motifs in all of the rooms painted by different painters, such as this one by very interesting English artist Stanley Spencer, http://EN.WahooArt.com/A55A04/w.nsf/OPRA/BRUE-8LT7K6.
