Huh?

Yeah, you got me. I have no idea what a “petite lap elephant” is either, but considering this is the #1 search term that links to the blog, such a thing exists. The other question of WHY a person wants or needs a petite lap elephant is also beyond me. Who the heck knows.

I am intrigued, though, and would love to hear your ideas. And since we haven’t had a giveaway in such a long while, I think it might be fun and prudent to have one RIGHT NOW. Well, ok—this isn’t your regular giveaway. Perhaps giveaway is a misnomer. I suppose it’s more of a give-and-get.

Because, you see, I want to hear from you. So I will award TWO Le Petit Éléphant soaps to the reader(s) who can, in my opinion, best (“best” to be defined as “the cutest, funniest, and most creative”) elucidate the elusive “petite lap elephant”. No standard definition will do, however. I challenge you to dig deep, think hard, and be creative. Write a haiku. Draw a picture (mail it to us here). Or pen a tall tale or a lengthy narrative. We’ll name the winner(s) in a future post, and send said winner(s) some Le Petit Éléphant happiness.

So tell us: What IS a Petite Lap Elephant?

Soap making will commense today!  We’ll be testing out some scents and mixes, and begin listing items on our Etsy Shop as well.

Be sure to stop back tonight and tomorrow for photos and more on creating our soaps and info on the best scents of this year’s batch.

YAY!

We took the handmade pledge!  Which means we’ll be making every effort possible this holiday season to buy or handmake all of our gifts.  It’s easier than it looks with sites like Etsy.com where you can really find ANYTHING under the sun that’s handmade, vintage, or crafty (like soaps from Le Petit Éléphant).  From jewelry to child toys, clothing, art, and bath & beauty, there’s really no reason for you to have to go to the mall and deal with the craziness and commercialism of the holidays.  The season is about being thankful and thoughtful and telling those you love you LOVE them.  And this season, I’m THANKFUL that I’ll never be setting foot in a mall again.  Unless my mom drags me in with her, in which case I’ll go, begrudgingly, with my hands stuffed in my pockets and a frown on my face.

Anyhow–check out Etsy and see all that’s there, including…

Ta DA!

Le Petit Éléphant!!

We’ll be posting items for sale soon, so keep checking back often.  Or just shoot me an email and I’ll take special orders.  Here’s what we’re offering this year (or what we plan to offer–once we get to making the soaps we sometimes get creative and come out with some fun scents and flavors we didn’t expect):

SOAPS (3-4 oz. bars, stamped with L.P.E. and wrapped in velum, $3 each or 4 for $10, your choice of bars, as available):

Goat’s Milk Base

  • Honey Chamomile
  • Rosemary Mint
  • Lavender Vanilla

I’ll also be putting up holiday cards, calling cards, and stationery, all hand drawn or printed with one-of-a kind designs.  These can also be made to order with your specifications.  Just let me know!

We may also do printed shopping bags, but we’ll see how the soap-making goes and how much time we have.

So check us out!  We look forward to creating something special for you! And sorry for all of the shameless plugs for our store, Le Petit Éléphant on Etsy.  It really is a fantastic space for artists and crafters to sell and share their ideas and wares.  We hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

Happy Giving!
