One of our students so excited to make bath bombs for the first time!On February 28 and March 1, we attended the Tennessee Soap & Candle Social. We had the opportunity to sell Make it Fizz, and to perform a bath bomb demonstration.

Kayla Fioravanti is the inspiration for both mine and Amanda's book! (Kayla is on the left!)In May, we got to meet some of you in Indianapolis, at the Handcrafted Soap and Cosmetics Guild annual conference. It was wonderful to meet fellow soapmakers like yourselves!

Anne-Marie from Bramble Berry and I!In July, Lotion Bar Cafe began their First Annual Teaching Road Trip! We traveled to Salt Lake City, and taught a bath bomb class to some wonderful ladies! We would like to personally thank Nikki Cicerone for allowing us to stay with her and teach a class at her house!
Our students from Utah!After teaching in Utah, Lotion Bar Cafe had a once in a lifetime opportunity! We were able to go and teach at the Nova Studio in Point Richmond, California! This has been on the business bucket list since Lotion Bar Cafe was just being developed. We taught a 4-day boot camp to students from all over the world! We are so thankful to everyone who came to this class! Unfortunately, the Nova Studio has closed their doors just at the end of 2015. We wish them well on their next chapter in life, and we are thankful to have been a part of their story.
The first day outside of the Nova Studio.After the summer's trips, Lotion Bar jumped right back into craft show season! We began with Rock Ledge Ranch in September. Thank you to everyone who came out and supported us. It was our best year at that craft show!
Set up at Rock Ledge Ranch!Then Lotion Bar Cafe hosted our 9th annual Handmade Hollyday, which always takes place on the first weekend of November. We welcomed many new vendors, and made record sales for our show!

In the following weeks, we went to back-to-back craft shows at Liberty High School and Rampart High School. You guys blew us out of the water with your generosity to support local and handmade businesses.

Shoppers at Rampart Craft Show!To wrap up craft show season, we traveled to Lyons, Colorado for a two-day craft show! This is probably the cutest little town we've ever been to, and it's such a great community event. Everyone in town is involved in the craft show and/or the community parade that follows.

We would like to thank you for supporting our business, and for making 2015 our best year yet! We are sincerely thankful for all of you! All of us at Lotion Bar Cafe would like to wish you a Happy New Year one more time! We hope you continue to support us throughout 2016! Thanks for stopping by! ~Lotion Bar Cafe
