Itsy Bitsy Spider Cupcake Soap

Itsy Bitsy Spider Cupcake Soap

Are you ready for October 31st? Have some fun this year with your children. Go trick-or-treating, throw a party, or give them gifts. Whatever you and your children decide to do, you’ll go batty over our Itsy Bitsy Spider Cupcake Soap!

The Itsy Bitsy Spider Cupcake Soap is a unique soap exclusively at Serah’s. I made the mold from my own two hands! It’s perfect for Halloween gifts.

Got a Spiderman fan in your household? The Itsy Bitsy Spider Cupcake Soap can also be customized in black, blue, and red for a Spiderman theme birthday party gift!

Is your child afraid of the creepy crawly spider? Teaching them about spiders is a great way to overcome arachnophobia. It’s the ideal gift to make their education just as fun as their bath time with our Itsy Bitsy Spider Cupcake Soap.

Our Itsy Bitsy Spider Cupcake Soap is made with extra lather glycerin and shea butter soap and scented the Creamsicle fragrance. Creamsicle smells like a yummy vanilla cupcake that everyone is sure to love.

Tagged! My Confessions

I was pleasantly surprised to discover that my Twitter friend Teresa from Gottitravel and Ebony Woman tagged me today for the 6 Interesting Things Game! After she posted six interesting things about herself, she passed the buck to me. I post six interesting things about myself and then tag six other people.

My confessions won't be as melodic or chart-topping as Usher Raymond's but I thought long and hard to try to make them as juicy as possible. Enjoy!

  1. I was almost kicked out of my high school.
  2. I still have the 1st TV I EVER bought.
  3. I chew ice cream.
  4. I was on the panel for a talk show called "Teen Talk" in high school
  5. I have gone white-water rafting, parasailing, AND jet skiing and I can't swim!
  6. At one point, I spent so many nights in the Atlanta-Hartsfield Airport that the food court staff knew me on a first name basis.

Now, for the six people I want to tag:

And I thank you…thank you!

Yesterday, I was shocked by some disturbing news from a fellow business owner and friend of mine. My friend asked another business owner for advice pertaining to their industry and was startled when she received an unflattering, discouraging, and discourteous response. I again must iterate that I, to say the least, floored!

Therefore, this post is to let everyone who has helped me know that you have been very supportive and I thank you…thank you! I have met some incredible people in my industry and in other industries that have been my conscious of good advice in business. Of course, also very instrumental to my success have been my customers who enjoy my products as much as I enjoy creating them and giving constructive feedback and I thank you. Thank you to the readers of this blog and those who leave me comments. Thank you to all my friends and family who have had my back.

Last but not least, there is 1 person in particular who chooses to remain anonymous who has been tremendously supportive and contributed greatly to the my success and the success of Serah’s and I THANK YOU! (You know who you are.)

Here's to all of you.

I Love My SITStas

I don’t remember how I found my SITStas but I am so glad I did! By SITStas, I’m referring to all the women bloggers at The Secret is in the Sauce (SITS). SITS is a community of bloggers (men too) dedicated to supporting each other by leaving lots of comments.

The brain children behind SITS are Heather and Tiffany, two self-proclaimed comment junkies. This supportive community has helped me build relationships and enter the interesting lives of some incredible women and entrepreneurs.

Please visit my SITStas, show them some comment love and tell them Lisa @ Serahs sent ya!

Although we’re not blood-related, we’re blog-related and I love them just the same because blogging is thicker than water!

Sharing Ways to Go Green

Our Commitment
Serah's is committed to reducing waste across all areas of our business and encouraging our customers to do the same.
Check back on this page to see new ways we go green and how you can go green as well. Please add your recycling tips in our comments. The more the greener!

Ways We Recycle
  • Ink Cartridges - Serah's recycles our HP Inkjet and Laser Cartridges through the HP Planet Parters Recycling Program. It's free and easy! Postage-paid return and recycling envelopes are provided free of charge in many HP print cartridge boxes. If you have one, just follow the instructions on the website to return cartridges to HP. If you don't have the envelopes, you can request an envelope for inkjet cartridges here and laser cartridges here at HP.
  • Recycling Paper - Serah's makes every effort to purchase recycled paper and recycle paper used. According to, for every ton of paper that is recycled, 17 trees live. You can recycle most paper including white office paper, newspaper and mixed-color paper through a local curbside recycling program.
  • Recycling Boxes - Serah's recycles boxes through our local recycling program or provides them to others in need of recycled boxes. We encourage our customers to recycle our packaging also.
  • Styrofoam Peanuts - Serah's does not purchase styrofoam peanuts but we do reuse them in other packages. This way, we are not creating a demand for styrofoam peanuts. As a consumer, you can do the same but if you don't have any packaging needs, take your peanuts to the nearest packaging store that accepts them and donate.

Casting Call: Crafty Island

This could be your chance!  You've heard of Fantasy Island, Temptation Island, and Survivor!  We're looking for women and men (all ages, all ethnicities) with an expertise to star in our all new reality show Crafty Island.  The show features real world people stranded on a remote island in the wild without any of their usual supplies.  NO communication with the outside world.  You all have to work together to survive but you are only allowed to use your area of expertise to aid in their survival for 1 month.  If you can't contribute to the group, you will be voted off by your teammates.  On the island are animals, trees with fruits and vegetables, a large pot, a glass container, and an ax.

All the members have been cast.  I'm the first cast member.  When I arrived on the island, I received a card that read, "How do you make soap if you're stranded in the wild?"  Luckily for me, I'm able to cheat.  Someone has already answered that question for me HERE and HERE.  (HAHA I've got a leg up!)

But if you're not crafty like my friend Jerod, his area of expertise is sales.  Therefore, his card read, "How would you barter resources from the wild if you were stranded in the wild?"  Jerod's answer was:

Since I don't have communication with the outside world, obviously I have to barter with the others on the island.  I would chop down all the trees and barter the trees for things I'll need to ensure my survival.  So I'd give some of the  trees to Lisa so she can make soap but she'd have to give me soap for the trees to make sure I stay fresh and clean.

Use your imagination...answer this question: As a cast member, when you arrived on the island, you received a card that read, "How do you (fill in the blank) if you're stranded in the wild?"

Think Pink - Breast Cancer Awareness Month at Serah's

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Serah’s plans to donate 20% from the purchase of the following products to breast cancer research for the month of October:
Click HERE to shop.
Serah's - Pink Awareness Ribbon

As the owner of Serah’s, it is my true, sincere personality to be a humanitarian and to strongly support causes which are personal to me. My family and friends have died from cancer, are cancer survivors, or have been generally affected by cancer. For years through school and corporate America, I have give my time and money to supporting my causes. Now that I have my own business, it's only natural that I would continue to support those causes through Serah's.

Serah's also supports charities to help combat the growing epidemic of AIDS in Africa.

I am not trying to push my product to make a profit. I am not sitting around a conference room table devising a brilliant marketing scheme that makes tons of money while only donating a very small share to research. I would like to help find a cure…plain and simple.

If you would like to make donations for breast cancer or cancer research directly to the charity, please visit:
