Honey Bee soap made for The Insect Asylum

And what Wonderful Adventures we shall have

It’s January 1, which has me reflecting on the incredible year just past. Nature’s Trace had its biggest sale year ever, yes. But I also got to do so many amazing collaborations and work with so many amazing humans and meet so many lovely customers. I am reflecting and marveling and savoring all of that. 

This year we -
~ Did a soap collaboration with the amazing Keeping Together, inspired by Averie Swanson's passion and beautiful beers Truly - find these beers if you’ve never tried them.) You can also read more about that in a blog post I did earlier this year - Keeping Together

~ We went “on tour” with Honey Cellar as part of the merch table for their concerts.

 ~ We collaborated with Mooxli on several soap varieties specific to each retreat, where health care workers find rest and restoration. 

~ Designed a soap specifically for The Insect Asylum to celebrate their business launch.

~ Did a restock of the Field Museum collection and started work on a new collaboration I’ll be releasing with them in the spring!  

This is just a few of the amazing things I got to do because of this business. Nature’s Trace has me tracing and following the paths of nature with all my designs and scents, but I never dreamed of the path it would take me personally as I collaborate and celebrate and interact with all of you.  

Thank you.

2023 is guaranteed to be unpredictable, hold highs and lows, triumphs and losses. But I know it will also hold moments and places that will continue to inspire and grow this little business, and I can’t wait to see where we’ll go next. Happy New Year, darlings. Thank you for being here.
