Natural products using Organic flowers, herbs...
Luxury handmade all natural products
I make All Natural lightly perfumed body balms, lip balms, "Rescue My Skin" body balm, goat milk soaps, bath salt "Teas" and other All Natural home spa products.
I also make eye masks/pillows, neck pillows, travel pillows, little dream/sleep pillows, sachets... featuring herbs and flowers grown in my organic garden.
I have added even more products to my online store.
I may be able to fill special requests if given enough notice. Please keep in mind that handmade takes time.
I have a little store in Hubbard, Ohio

Do YOU have the WalM@rt mentality ?
OR - do you appreciate having quality artisan work ?
There is a post about this at the-wal-m@rt-mentality
There is nothing wrong with saving money on most things, BUT for my food, gifts, soaps, perfumes... - I want the best and to me that means as unprocessed as possible, all natural, organic and handmade - often one-of-a-kind items.
I agree with the others who have posted about this issue.
I also point out (to these potential buyers) that there are differences.
I make one-of-a-kind handmade items and other quality handmade items using all natural herbs and flowers... that are organically grown AND you get to meet the designer/maker of those goods (me).
I can explain to you how I do things, why I use certain materials, and tell you what herbs and flowers... I grew in my own organic gardens and how I grew them.
I make your items as though they are for my own family - which means slowly and with great care because my Grandparents taught me to take pride in my work - not to just do things fast and easy to make a quick buck.
Can you get THAT at WalM@rt ?
Diana's Hand-Sewn and All Natural Products are getting even more popular !
December 20, 2009
Diana's Hand-Sewn and All Natural Products are getting even more local recognition.
Another local Hubbard, Ohio store has asked me to bring in a display of my All Natural handmade products and some of my hand sewn items to sell them in her downtown store right in the center of town.
This lady has a store in town with furniture and other things - she also does interior design...
She found my website and emailed me last week about putting some of my things in her store !
I emailed her back and will go to meet with her next week or so to talk about it.
I hope she knows that it is JUST me and not a whole crew that makes my things and that my hand-sewn items take time and are one-of-a-kind.
I am putting together a nice display of a little bit of everything so she can see them up close and then we will talk percentages and we will go from there.
This is so exciting !
The only problem is that I have been so busy helping my Mom and oldest daughter & helping a friend get her business going that I am way behind in my own work.
I have several folks waiting for my soap to be ready and others are waiting for the herbs for my newest body balm "Baby My Skin" to finish infusing so I can get a batch done.
My perfumes are mostly sold out too and they also take many months to make.
She loved EVERYTHING I took in for her to see.
She set up a whole section of my items and we are doing it as consignment.
UPDATE - August, 2010
I now have my own little store called Diana's Gift Shop and so I do not have them in the other store any longer.
Diana's Gift Shop
6177 Youngstown-Hubbard Road
Wednesdays and Sundays from noon to 5pm
Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays from 10am to 5pm
So, what do you think - IS a little poison okay ???
Again, this is why I make my own products...
Can you trust the big companies to have your and your children's' best interests at heart ?
Does YOUR products maker think that a little poison is okay ?

Diana's Gift Sets
I have many choices for your All Natural Gifts Sets or Gift Baskets
Many of my All natural health and beauty - home spa products have matching items so that you could give a set as a gift.
There are eye masks, neck pillows and sachets that either match or will coordinate very well and make a very nice gift.
I also have many perfume, soap and bath "Tea" items that make a great gift set.
For example, Jasmine & Myrrh All Natural Luxury solid perfume - bath salt "Tea" - and soap to match.
I have Frankincense & Pink Roses All Natural Luxury solid perfume - bath salt "Tea" - soap to match + I have some neck pillows, eye masks/pillows, and sachets with roses in them. I also have cedar/rose sachets for the closet/car/dresser drawer... .
There is a big variety of lavender products that you could put together for a set like: soap - bath salt "Tea" - neck pillow - sachets - eye mask/pillow - dream pillows - cedar/lavender closet/car/drawer sachets ...
Diana's has an All Natural Luxury lavender perfume also !
You can make your own gift baskets with my handmade products.
You could get my mini canvas Gift Bags. These are reuseable cotton canvas and measure about 8" x 8" + the handle.
I have "Grandma", "Dad", and "Grandpa" - sorry - the "Mom" canvas bags are all gone.
If you are local and can pick them up, I would be happy to put together Gift Baskets complete with a decorative bow or rafia... for you.

What's new ?
I just listed more items in my online store
I am always working on something new and trying to keep up with the demand for my all-natural products.
I have many products completed that I just haven't had the time yet to take photos of and write up descriptions. I will get to them eventually - little by little.
I have just finished several more eye mask pillows, neck pillows and sachets... made - I just haven't had the time to get them photographed and listed yet.
Check my store in Hubbard, Ohio called Diana's Gift Shop, my website's blog and my online store to see what I have in the works and what is available now for sale.
I have just added some more products to my online store.
