Just A Bit Of This And That


Olive Oil and Goat's Milk new chunky bar with texture...

I've been working for some time on a new bar size and shape. I think I'm getting very close to what I'm after. Soon, these lovely chunky textured bars will come in new colors and scents, and for those of you who prefer the rounds have no fear there will be a variety of "Naturals" that come in rounds.

I've been working very hard on things on the business end. I got lots of good advice from the soaping community in regards to embracing my weak area that is the business side of things. I have taken a close look at my pricing and have re-vamped it accordingly, I am in the midst of re-working my website,blog etc. to show these changes and to be more cost effective, I am doing just as I did when I first started making soap-reading all I can get my hands on, figuring, calculating, learning,changing this and that, all while making soap each day to get ready for two up and coming shows. One will be here in Lubbock and one in the Lamesa area.(more details closer to the time of these events.) I have made some real strides towards getting a handle on the business workings  that I thought I wasn't "smart enough" to take on. Admittedly, I don't have all the answers, and expect to fumble and fall on occasion, but I'm making HUGE strides and just want to give it every chance to be a success.

Beautiful! A lovely bit of photography as well (something I'm really struggling with at the moment)

@ Sue Thank you so much! I have always loved the simple natural soaps-such a humble beauty about them.

@soapmine Thank you! I struggled too and sometimes still do,hang in there.I recommend natural light and taking from several angles + taking several shots so that you can pick out the very best. You'll get it down.
