At the end of 2019, I closed my soaping business (Merry Sherry’s Small Batch Soaps). Last week I sold off all my supplies and equipment. It was really hard to let this business go. It was never much of a money-maker, but I enjoyed the soap making process from beginning to end. I will continue […]
Each new year brings us the opportunity to find joy, peace, creativity, community, hope. My sincere hope for each of you reading this is that – whatever the time of year – you would experience all the good that life has to offer. Blessings for 2020!
If you follow my Facebook page, you know that I am closing my soaping business (Merry Sherry’s Small Batch Soaps) at the end of 2019. I’ve been making soap since I was a little kid and created Merry Sherry’s Small Batch Soaps a few years ago. While I’ve enjoyed it, soaping today is a very […]
The leaves are falling so fast around here these days – and all the colors are screaming THANKSGIVING! Beautiful reds, yellows, oranges, and touches of purple here and there.

A really fun option is to present them with Balloon Candy Cups: balloon sculptures topping a clear cup that holds treats and/or gifts. I offer candy cups from $5 (unfilled/simple designs) up. The average price is $8.00 for candy-filled multi-balloon cups. […]
Just had a terrific time at the Summit High School Band Booster Craft Festival in Arlington, Texas. Face painting and glitter tattoos were offered and had a great reception. Nothing beats that wonderful smile when someone sees their “new face”!
Did you know that I teach painting/craft classes? YES! I can combine these with a balloon twisting or face painting time at a birthday or other type of party. Or they can be scheduled as standalone events. One of the surprising offerings is a silk scarf/handkerchief dying class. Sounds messy – right? Not at all! […]
