Busy In The Goat Milk Soap Shop

I am a busy lady this week.

A retail location where I sell some of my products needed a replenishment of gift sets. I have been putting various sets together that include lotion, soap and bath salt/fizzies. The store carries handcrafted furniture and primitive candles/tarts, handmade purses, and beautiful homespun items for the kitchen and bath. My gift crates (made from reclaimed wood) and simple packaging fit right in. It puts a smile on my face!

I am working on a wholesale project as well, and keeping up with customer orders.

I have also been successful with keeping the curing racks full. No gaps. Pull one batch down, move those soaps straight to the website, put a brand new batch right in its place (ready in 4 weeks).

It has been busy, but I am enjoying the blessings in my life! I hope you are doing the same!

I love the natural look of your gift sets Mary, I can imagine they would fit in well to many retail outlets.
I'm working on mixed gift sets too, along with many other things. My blog has been sadly neglected :( Being all things to all people is hard, sometimes things take a backseat. I applaud that you seem to manage everything.

So so pretty, Mary. You do such lovely work.

Hey... I need to get to my mailbox to see if there are any goat milk soap treasures waiting for me.

It is good to see your hard work rewarded ! The closet in my craft room, the closet I store gifts in, smells wonderful because I put the box of soaps I ordered from you in it. I think you should let people know the soaps are dual purpose, bathing and room scent, all in one neat little bar.

Hello Tina, I need to come visit your blog, welcome to you!

Corrie, it is a big job. I am happy though (thanks Jeannelle). Happy being busy. I think I told someone this week, "I am a glutton for these sorts of things." Notice, I did not quite say punishment. Ha.

Alix, you had to have a good smelling mailbox! And it helps with you soap addiction for a while. :)

Kathy B., now all of those gifts will be surrounded by beautiful scents.
