Hopelessly Devoted to Soaping

Hopelessly Devoted to Soaping

Tuesday, January 29, 2013

Well, it was back to the real world for me today - back to work.  I'm fortunate to work with some really great ladies who support my soap making habit with encouragement and enthusiasm.  I had quite a few requests before the holidays for gift baskets containing lotions, soaps and candles.  It was fun putting them together and they turned out to be simple and adorable. (well, they were!) 

Speaking of Christmas, I had the pleasure of participating in a small craft event in the town of Robinson, KS.  What a cool little town!  Their town museum hosted an open house and invited me to set up a booth for the event.  I may have met my future protege there, Miss Daisy.  Daisy is 10 years old and my friend Vivica's granddaughter.  We hit it off quite nicely.  She began smelling all my soaps and scrubs and confessed her love of "things that smell good"!  We were a perfect match.  She jumped right in and started handing out samples of the sugar scrubs and then led folks over to purchase them - a born saleswoman!  I hope she's there to help me for the next open house over July 4th.  Incidentally, Vivica's mother is the mayor of Robinson, and I feel very lucky to have been brought into their community as a friend. 

Enough stories for today - thanks for listening!
