Decking the house, family gatherings, special concerts, photo sessions, baking and baking some more… The holiday season is always very busy. But it can always get busier!
This year I’ve added another to-do to my list: SOAP!!! This is my first year making soap to sell during the holidays, and boy, oh boy, did it increase my busy-ness! It’s been so much fun making pounds and pounds of soap! New scents, new colors, new designs and techniques. Serious creativity surge!
Back in October, I thought I was getting an early start. I began making a few Christmas scents as testers, and a few orders trickled in. Then by November, the orders increased dramatically! I found myself scrambling to get all of the orders filled in time for them to cure. I certainly didn’t give myself much time to get them packaged, but somehow it has all worked out perfectly. And I even have a few extras left over to give as gifts!
Surprisingly, I remembered to snap a few photos of this year’s holiday soaps just before I packaged them.
Here’s a brief breakdown of some of the new soaps made just for this holiday season.
I feel so very blessed and privileged to have gotten some large orders. Several people ordered soaps in bulk to give as Christmas gifts to their friends, family, customers, and co-workers. Thank you so much if you’re one who purchased from me. And if you’re one of the recipients of my soap, welcome! I’m so glad you’re here!
It’s incredibly humbling when other people like something that I’ve spent so much time learning and perfecting. And if you’ve been reading my blog for long, you’ll see that I’ll keep learning and “perfecting” from now until forevermore! There’s always something unexpected, something new, something intriguing, something else to research and try. Soaping is such a fun adventure, and I’m thankful that you’re following along. 🙂
