January 12 in 12

Year three of 12 in 12? Yup, year 3!  I figure this at least makes create posts and you can get an overview of what’s going on in the world of Jennifer :D.

Hope your New Year started off well!  I took a couple weeks off over Christmas and then somehow I ended up jumping right back in to being crazy.  I’ve a list a mile long of things to get done and it never seems to shrink!

January 2, 2019: Bookkeeping

2018 Bookkeeping is complete.  Granted, I had only December to complete and then the general 2018 end of year stuff to complete.  One thing I’m pretty good about it staying on top of bookkeeping.


January 4, 2019: Hand Balms

There were items I needed to restock after the end of the year…hand balms being the biggest item (after soap).

January 5, 2019: Some time for myself (Books!)

October through December I don’t really get much time to read. I am so busy.  Come January I devour books.  I get more out of the library than I can possibly read before they’re due…and yet some how I manage to get through them ;).

January 6, 2019: Basil Sage Mint

First soap made of 2019: Basil Sage Mint restock.  The rest of the month was spent restocking on standard soaps I was low on.

January 7, 2019: Master Exam

I’ve always spent most hours most days working on my Master Exam.  With just a little time left to complete it I’m not wasting any time.  My brain hurts ha!

January 9, 2019: More Soap!

In the pot is Ginger Lime.  Lots of restocking going on.

January 13, 2019: Research Essay

My research report is almost done at this point. I had a little left to type up and then it was off to my critiquers.  Some editing and hopefully this section will get submitted shortly.

January 14, 2019: Bibliography

I know why bibliographies are important, but oh my word they are tedious to do. Especially when you have 20 some odd sources to properly cite.

January 16, 2019: Part 1 Documentation

With part three basically done, I’ve been working on part 1 (making the soap), which involves a crap ton of documentation on top of just making the soaps. Don’t tell anyone I said this, but it’s actually kind of fun doing this (stressful because I’m down to the wire, but I’m still enjoying it).

January 17, 2019: Designing Spring Soaps

And I decided on the spring soaps and their designs. I have no doubt some of these will morph/change when it comes time to making them, but I have ideas at least in my head.

January 19, 2019: Embeds

I decided on my spring line and I started making them!  The pink hearts are bright! And I love them! Can’t wait to see how they turn out in the soap.

January 21, 2019:  Pretty Tops

Ummmm…. I don’t think I’m going to do the dusted hear embeds on the top of this batch again. Oh my word the work. They look good on top. So let’s see how the bars look when I cut them. I hope they turn out well for all the work they were.
