Can’t say much went on this month out of the ordinary. Lots of soap making (and bath products) and many many markets. I also tried to take some time off here and there to enjoy visits with the family.
July 1, 2019: Custom Labels
Made custom gift sets for a bridal shower and had to create some lip balm labels for them. I love how these turned out. Hope the bride to be loves the gifts too!
July 2, 2019: Missing Products
I KNEW I had ordered clear soap boxes a while back. I couldn’t find them anywhere and ended up ordering more for an order in April. What did I happen to find a couple months later. The boxes I KNEW I had. Yeah.
July 3, 2019: Experiments
After I finished my experiment with Meadowfoam oil I could have ditched the soaps I had made, but I had space and I held on to them. I was curious to see if/how things changed over more time. The experiment I ran for 6 months. 14 months later and some of my conclusions proved to not hold up given time. It’s fascinating. I’d go back and alter my report now if I could.
July 5, 2019: Redesigning Lip Balm Labels
last year I started redesigning all my labels. Not major changes, but just a cleaner look (and a change of font). I’d been stuck on my lip balm labels. I couldn’t come up with a design I liked. I also needed to make the flavor more prominent. Inspiration finally struck and I redesigned all my lip balm labels!
July 6, 2019: In Action!
And here they are in action. I’m really happy with how they turned out.
July 7, 2019: Washcloth Cuteness!
I had a customer come find me at a market and buy soaps to match a bunch of washcloths she had made. The owl one was my favorite! Paired up with my Grapefruit Mint! They work well together!
July 8, 2019: Unicorn Soaps
They’re not perfect and there are a few things I’d change if I ever make these again, but they’re cute. I made these for a friends birthday.
July 10, 2019: Popsicle Soaps
Haven’t made these in ages, but a wholesale account wanted them and for them I did a custom batch!
July 13, 2019: Show Season
Of course I had to have a display set up in here since over half the month I was set up at events!
July 15, 2019: Day Off~
When you have a day off and you need your dad’s help with some yard work. Bribery always works ;).
July 16, 2019: New Banners
This has only been on my list for like 12 months. Yeah, I know. But hey I finally got them done and ordered!
July 23, 2019: Restocks
A trip to BJs to restock 😉 There’s gonna be a couple days of bath bomb restocking going on. Cause once again I’ve left it to the point where I need to make like 20 batches. Ha!
