Mosaics and More at The Christmas Goose Boutique!

Meet the Maker: Barbara! Barbara Bussler makes…. mosaics, and a lot more.

Handmade soaps, body butters, and bath salts (and more!) inspired by seasons, worlds created by thousands of years of mythology, lore, literature, and entertainment emerged All The Way Handmade - a workshop aimed at integrating these worlds and stories into the most mundane elements of reality.
