Please pardon my lack of posts lately -I've been busy as a cat (as I know many of you have been) ramping up production....er, no, really that sounds way too gradual ...and calm....and, well, I've been soaping like a woman possessed!
|Why I hate my camera today -I just couldn't capture the beauty of "Molten"|
Does anyone else out there in blogland feel the pressure? You know, the
"Six-week-cure-pressure". (I keep telling myself to relax...there's always Hot Process to save the day, but so far it's not working!)
Yes, I've been swept into the pre-fall-craft-show frenzy. I've mailed out applications & fees. I've made commitments. I must soap! (It's o.k., I love it & perform best under a deadline...always have.)
I have set some healthy (I believe) new soap boundaries as well, in the interest of preserving my sanity:
1. I only work (on my soap business) from 9:30 a.m. until 2:30 p.m. M-F
2. I've expanded & organized my production space & I can now do everything except heat my oils in my soap room. Production is up as a result...a staggering (for me) 11 batches in the last week.
