Oh goodness time has flown by again!

After my last post I attempted to add the widget that used to be 'follow this blog' .... however it seems google has superseded that with google+ .... oh really I don't like when technology speeds ahead and leaves me behind wondering and floundering! I'll stick to soap making and  pretend I'm keeping up with the changes LOL !

Since my last visit here things are chugging ahead... Leura markets are going well and I have a big event in the pipeline (fingers crossed), a whole weekend market (EEK!) Given that I cure my soaps for min 4 weeks, some taking over 2 months, I need to start preparing and working out how much I am going to need. I feel a list may be in order... I like lists! I've made a lot of sales from my facebook page too, and even etsy has started working for me, things are happening! I'm still not on top of the whole website-thing... remains in the 'too-hard' basket for now!

I've been busy making too - here are a few newbies off the shelves and into my ETSY shop -

Cedarwood, Rosemary & Lemon - Natural Handmade Soap

Oats, Milk & Honey - simply gorgeous!

And this most delicious one.... OH MY, my house smelled like a liquorice factory for a week! Luckily for me, I love liquorice :-) It is scented with Anise essential oil, and the black is activated charcoal. Who knew it was so great for your skin?! And matches the liquorice scent I think quite nicely :-) 

 On the cutting board the day after making..... (yes that really is a cheese cutter I use!)

.... and 4 weeks later, the finished soaps - Liquorice Addiction!

After a break from creating while we had family visit, it was great to get back into it today. As my mother-in-law says - "the happiest people are those who work with their hands". Yep, I can see how that could be true....
