Three months left to 2019! Three months! Where did the year go? I swear it feel like it was just April! This is crazy time for me. Lots and lots of soap making as I pretty much have to have the rest of my soaps for the year made by end of September-October. But there was lots of bath product making and markets as well.
September 1, 2019: Gingerbread Soap
I was a bit behind of starting my winter soaps this year (end of August was busy and I was away for a good chunk of it.) So I was in overdrive making 30 lbs of soap almost every day the first week of September!
September 4, 2019: Embeds
Brought this soap back this year after a couple years break. I’d change things up next time, but I still love the embeds and colors!
September 5, 2019: Shaving Soaps
Restocking shaving soaps. So far they have gone over pretty well. It’s a very specific audience, but I knew that when I added them to my line.
September 6, 2019: Grinch is back!
Many many many batches of this soap!
September 9, 2019: Limited Edition
I’ve been asked so often for Peppermint Lip balm that I decided to try and limited edition this winter. We’ll see how it goes over. Of course that meant designing new labels.
September 10, 2019: Bath Bombs and Full Dry Racks
I had to pull out my overflow dry rack as this one is full! Such a pretty sight. I also made over 12 batches of bath bombs today.
September 12, 2019: Bubble Scoops
Blah! I don’t make these in the summer for a very specific reason! Humidity! It makes them expand. I figured I’d be ok to restock. Today decided to have a mini heat wave and the humidity caused these to expand and they got too big to fit in my packaging. Sigh. So, the next day I made a whole new six batches. 😛
September 13, 2019: Sorting Hat Embeds
Had to make more embeds for my sorting hat bath bombs. A bit of a pain to make…but not as bad as actually making the bath bombs that they’ll get embedded into ha!
September 14, 2019: Photographing
Had to get the fall soaps and a few other things photographed. Spent part of the day doing that and then editing the photos.
September 16, 2019: Aloe
I needed some more fresh aloe for my aloe soap. A friend found some at the store and picked up 8 leaves for me. They were HUGE! I ended up with over 3 lbs of aloe! Enough to make 50 lbs of soap with!
September 17, 2019: Teaching
Set up and ready to go! It was a fun night teaching!
September 24, 2019: Oils
Getting ready to make a 20 lb batch of soap! That’s a lot of oils right there!
