Variety is the spice of life

More soap orders going out.

Samples dropped off at potential buyers.

My first Craft fairs booked for next year.

Another card made which I'll finish and show you later.

A give-away planned for next week with another wonderful crafter on her blog.

A new blog button over on the right hand side there.

Blimey it's been a busy few weeks.  Hope everyone else is busy too :o).

Went to Plan

Amazing...that actually went to plan ;o).  I made a couple of mini Christmas Wreaths so I'm off to pop them in the shop now.  More soap making today as my afternoon appt with the business advisor has been re-scheduled...woohoo for extra time.

Back to it then :o)

Back to it with gusto then.  Ylang ylang soap made this morning (ready 10th December).

I've started attending some free workshops provided by a local enterprise scheme to help with the marketing side of things (I'm truely pants at this sort of thing).  So with their advice still ringing in my ears I've set up a twitter account, eek!

The link is in the sidebar on the right if you like that sort of thing :o).

So this afternoon I shall be doing a little housework, a little play with the kids, and hopefully a little sewing as that's been sorely lacking in these parts.  Hope your all having a productive day :o)

 Mandarin Shaving Soap

 Patchouli and Orange


Well, that never went to plan.  I think the shock of actually passing my driving test put me right out of kilter!  I'm back on form now and the soaps are in the shop ;o)
