This past week was quite fun with some major soapmaking. I know ten batches in a week isn't much for many soapmakers but I tend to only make 2-4 on any given week. I just haven't felt the need to push myself that hard at this point. However, I wanted to get several restocks done so that I could focus on making Fall and Holiday soaps. Normally I wouldn't feel quite so energetic, with daily responsibilities and all, but the kiddos were at Grandma and Grandpa's house all week. I had a lot of time at home by myself and also a break from fixing meals, cleaning up constantly, unplugging toilets (it's a reality you know), etc.. Don't get me wrong though, I think I worked harder this week than usual, but it was a different kind of work. The hubby and I were able to get some much needed projects done around the house.
I only soaped on two days but I made it worthwhile. The very first soap I made was Sunshine & Rainbows. It is a yellow soap with soap balls from the Rainbow batch embedded inside the soap and on the top. Oh the drama that ensued! I had some overly OCD people be quite upset with me for improper soap ball placement. HUH? Anyway...it made for a quite a giggle. I also remade Summer Love, Banana Coconut Candy, and Confetti Blossom.
The next day I was able to make soap was Friday. I made 6 batches! That may be a new record for me. I remade Patchouli Rain, Sierra, Green Clover & Aloe, Black Raspberry Vanilla, Lilac, and Licorice soaps. The Licorice one was a new one for me. It smells so good.
I have been so busy that I haven't even had time for pictures yet. I actually haven't even cut the last 6 batches. That is on the agenda for today.
First, I need to work on getting today's listings ready to go live. It looks like I won't be listing anything new until around 6-7pm central time.
Thank you for reading my blog and I hope you have a most wonderful week!
