Our Travel Essential Sets have been such a popular item that we have decided to offer an option to supersize. Now you can get a Travel Bath and Body Set filled with one of our new mini scrubs, a lotion bar, a 1/2 bar of solid shampoo, a 1/2 bar of soap and a lip balm.
Whew! It’s been busy, which is of course is a good thing, but I am having trouble keeping all of my plates spinning.
I have had some people wonder what my week is like. Although this was a little busier than typical in that I did two sessions of soapmaking and we had an extremely large number of orders to work on – it was still pretty reflective of how things go. When we are not as active on actually making soap or filling orders there is still the tying of soap and labeling of product. I always have more bookkeeping to do and more emails to answer. I have ups and downs, successes and problems like everyone. I enjoy what I do even though at times it can be very frustrating. Welcome to “Life as a soapmaker (lately)”.
Christmas Angel Soaps are now available in our Almond Oatmeal scent.
This cut out is our most popular Christmas cut out that we offer and almond oatmeal is one of our most popular scents.
We just put up our new Shaving Soap on our website. We used castor oil to help achieve the great conditioning lather. Bentonite clay was also added for “slip” so that you can get a smooth, close shave. Of course it’s all natural, made with all vegetable oils and no animal testing, just like all of our products.
Last night I attended the Texas Monthly State Fair Kick Off Party at the Food & Fiber Pavilion. I took some photos giving you another look at some of the behind the scene events at the fair as well as some videos including a very short interview with Daryl Dean of TDA. I hope you enjoy them.
Yesterday I set up our space at the Texas State Fair which opens this Friday, September 25. We are a member of the TDA’s Go Texan program and through them are able to have our products sold in the Mercantile Store which is located in the Food & Fiber building of the Texas State Fair. I find it rather fascinating how this big empty building is transformed into a space teeming with events and activities and products for the duration of the fair.
This post is in response to more pictures of our log home. I also included some views of our pecans trees that may actually give us edible pecans this year as well as our four chickens in their movable pen.
Plus this market we will have our new All Natural Liquid Soap to present as well as our Fir & Cedar Soap. We wanted to let everyone know about them as well as present our wedding favor items better so they wouldn’t be overlooked in the booth. Our wedding favor items had just been somewhat jumbled in among everything else and now they have their own shelf all their own.
