Rarely do we do a lot of self-promotion here, but this one I’ve just got to brag on. My daughter Jillian has been working SO hard on her soaps the past few weeks, and I believe she deserves this little nudge.
Over the weekend she was super excited to attend her first craft show over Thanksgiving weekend (she had a few soaps out among our candles) where she did in fact make a few sales. This was one happy little girl to make her first sale that wasn’t a family member! She’ll be going with us again to a craft show in December where I hope she’ll make even more sales.
Since finally “breaking out” and selling a few, she’s come up with some new soaps that I think are absolutely ADORABLE. Same molds as she’s been using, but this time with a new design. She calls them “tie-dye soaps”. (See picture below of the hearts)
She just did these tonight in two batches. The first was in blue/green in “Mystic Woods” scent. The second was in pink/blue (which looks mostly purple with a marbled look) in “Princess” scent. Both these scents have a nice perfume-like fragrance, and all the soap is currently Goats Milk (our favorite!)
We’re getting them up on her Etsy store a little at a time. I’m nudging her to make me more of her Almond Oatmeal soap as well (almond scent with real oatmeal mixed in), so hopefully we’ll have a few of those up by the end of the week. We also got her a “regular shaped” mold, so she can get creative with her designs. The kid is just bursting with ideas, and I couldn’t be more proud.
