On the fifth day of Craftmas, the Blue Buddha Artisan Market gave to me …
Five handmade soaps by Wizard at Work.
Soap, bath fizzies and lotion bars in fun shapes? Check! The Wizard at Work here is Kymberlee Ricke, a 10+ year resident of the Uptown neighborhood in Chicago, and her day job is teaching 5th grade reading and science on the west side of the city where she often brings her bath and body product making skills to school and teaches the students to make their own soaps and bath bombs. She’s also an avid wildlife photographer, jeweler and crochet artist. She travels internationally at least once a year to photograph the diverse wildlife found in places like Costa Rica, Honduras and Belize.
