A World of Beautiful Handmade Things at Your Fingertips
I started out with a single soap mold and an eagerness to learn. If that sounds like you, I can guarantee that with passion and practice you too will become very efficient at making handmade things!
I have several years of craft and homemaking experience to share with you, I’m a member of the Soapmaking & Cosmetic Guild, and I have a Diploma in Organic Skincare Formulation. Every day I share my experience while crafting something new, it’s fantastic.
As you’ll see below, SavvyHomemade is all about home crafts for the mind, body, and home. While a great lotion will nourish your skin and a reed diffuser can fill your home will inspiring aromas, it’s easy to forget about the beneficial mindfulness that comes with a simple handicraft.

The Most Popular Beginner Pages
You can find some of my most popular crafts below, but I encourage you to take a look around and see what piques your interest. Let’s begin with 6 of my most popular beginner tutorials for handmade things.
Bath & Body Recipes
My favourite handmade things are bath and body recipes. Each time I give one of my these as a gift, the recipient is fascinated and totally intrigued by the idea that ‘I made it myself’. Not only can you make amazing quality products that will wipe the floor with anything you can buy instore, but you’ll also save potentially thousands of dollars a year. Popular projects on this subject are my handmade bath bombs and diy body butters, here are the latest posts from Bath & Body.
DIY Face Care Recipes
You’ll find that many of the ingredients in face care recipes can be substituted in order to tailor it to your own specific needs, so I would definitely take a look at there to get more information on how we do that. A great place to start is with my natural facial at home page, where you can create recipes for your daily routine or extend it to create a luxury spa day. Below are the latest posts from my face care category.
Homemade soaps always make wonderful gifts. I started making soaps when I retired, I went from a busy, hectic, deadline-driven environment to almost nothing. I didn’t know how to cope. Yet learning how to make soap allowed to me slow down and calm my mind. It taught me how to appreciate the now, how to live in the moment again.
I’ve found that natural soaps make fantastic handmade gifts and below you will find some of my latest favorites. The best place to begin would be with soapmaking for beginners or my liquid soap tutorial. But if you’re a little more adventurous check out how you can formulate your own soap recipes with my new soap making calculator, which has an extensive formulation guide.
I loved exploring how to make candles. There’s is a whole range that you can try, check them all out here, it’s so easy to choose something that you will really like. And when you learn how to make them from scratch your sense of pride makes them even better. Start with an overview of candle making and how to make a simple pillar candle.
Creative Home Crafts
While the economy was still getting back on its feet, we had to watch the pennies and save those dollars. making handmade things to help do things cheaper than normal seemed like a logical idea to us, and making your own things is a great way to save cash. Below are some of the things I’ve made along the way.
Supplies & Resources
With so many comments and emails asking where we get our ingredients for recipes and the equipment used for our recipes. I thought it would be great to create a page that links to all of the guides on this site and the items involved.
