In Progress!

My apologies for a lack of post yesterday! I was not feeling well.

Here’s a peek at what is going on here today:

Row 1: The State of my Kitchen Currently, Holiday Soaps, Flowers to embed in a special soap for a special little girl

Row 2: Stars for my stocking stuffers, Stars for my peppermint soap, Snowmen for the stocking stuffers

Row 3: Lump of coal soaps, The aftermath of lump of coal soaps, testing a formula for face soap

That’s its for today all! I need to get back to soaping! Happy Thursday!

 

Monday Funday!

Happy Monday all!

 

To say we had a productive weekend would be an understatement.

 

– Stud Muffin and I ordered our Wedding Rings and Wedding Cake. We (I) wrote our wedding vows. Basically he told me what he wanted to say based on various different vows we’ve read and I complied our ideas into something personal and custom for us. I will share these after the ceremony. Stud Muffin’s ring was purchased through an ETSY shop we will feature later this month once his ring is here. Less than 4 weeks to go!

 

– Pretty One made the Junior Olympic Volleyball team at the volleyball club she plays at. Don’t let the Olympic name fool you it is just the level they compete at and she is registered with USA Volleyball. It is a nation wide level of competition and the highest level she can compete at for her age group. We are ridiculously happy and proud that she made the cut! Her first practice is the day after the wedding  and they play from January until June. Its going to mean a lot of travel and a lot of volleyball to watch for us. We are all so excited. I will have more information about when and where the tournaments are in a few weeks so I could potentially schedule appearances and sales at local events and shows.

This is what our first 7 months of wedded bliss will look like.

– We may be running a Bathe Happy fundraiser for the Volleyball fees. More to follow on that as we decide what, if anything, we want/can do.

 

– I have the starting framework for home parties in place for Bathe Happy. More details coming soon.

– Florida State beat the heck out of Miami.

Over all I would say the weekend was awesome. Soaping supplies will be here today so expect lots of product updates in the near future. Holiday bundles will be coming! We are planning a few big holiday sales. I recommend stocking up fast once the new products are out.

I will be doing a ton of crochet over the next several weeks. I need to get a blanket for Pretty One made pronto. It can get very cold at volleyball tournaments and its good to have something to wrap up in so I am making her one in her club colors. Expects photos, status updates, and tutorials.

I will also be working on brooch bouquets for the wedding party (mine is done) and I will have tutorials for those as well.

Lots of work in my future! Loving every minute of it!

Back To School Contest Soon!

We are having a giveaway in a few days! I am still working out the details but there will be a giveaway coming up! It will be via Facebook so be sure to like our page!

The contest will be to honor the lovely time of year we parents all long for and dread at the same time… back to school season!

Back to school for us was today with Pretty One starting her sophomore year. Her first Volleyball practice with her new team is this afternoon. There is NO waiting when it comes to Volleyball season. Tryouts were last week and her first game is the 29th.

Back to school is a great time to stock up on bath and body products. They make excellent teachers gifts, holiday gifts, party favors, etc. Not to mention you want to keep the kiddos from being all germy and stinky. You do not know the meaning of stink till you get a whiff of an athlete’s bag. Toss an open bar of soap in their bag to help! We have a ton of stock ready and waiting to go out and wash stinky kids everywhere!

Back to school for college kids also is a good time to get them the soaps and body products they will need for the coming semester!

That’s it for today. Check back tomorrow for a product spotlight!
