Fun Day

I went to Portland to pick up some soap supplies today. I need to get busy because soon it's going to be bazaar season and people will be Christmas shopping. I have my first show on September 27th in Portland. I got invited by the local Craft Mafia group and it will be held in the Secret Society Ballroom. I looked at pictures on the website and it is a beautiful, old historic building with wooden floors and red velvet drapes. I can't wait.

Here's a link if you want to take a peek for yourself.

I ordered from a different supplier than I usually use and it was the most pleasant experience. They have a very small warehouse and office. He and his assistant were so friendly. I asked if I could smell their lavender essential oil so she took me out in the warehouse. While I was there she showed me all around and I got to sniff and touch and try things - coffee butter, lavender butter, tangerine butter, and organic shea butter. Then she sent me home with a small chunk of raw cocoa butter - it smells so good that you just want to eat it. I put it on a little dish by my sink and will rub it on my hands after doing dishes. I'll definitely be getting some of that when my cocoa butter supply runs out. And I will definitely be buying from this supplier again - probably just so I can have another tour of the warehouse!

Tomorrow I'm helping my oldest daughter move - not fun! But Sunday I will get to make soap so that will make up for the hard work on Saturday. Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

Glad to hear you are doing well and back to soap making. Hope your weather has cooled off. We are still hot and humid, yuk!
Hoping for cooler weather soon!
Enjoy your weekend!

Kay, you had better make LOTS of that soap, as it is just the best stuff around. Got mine in the mail and believe me, I just couldn't wait to hop in the shower. It is heavenly!!!!! Thanks for getting it to me so quickly!

Hope the moving went smoothly! After my last move, I swore that if I ever had to move again, I would leave everything and just take my purse!!!!!

PS: Kay, I absolutely love your new blog background!!!!! It's gorgeous!


Kay said...

Cora - I'm so glad that you love the soap! It always makes me happy when someone is pleased with what they purchase.

I'm getting too old to move anymore. Just walking out with my purse over my arm sounds like a good deal!

Moving-ugh...........I know we are way too old to do that ever again.
Spring cleaning about kills me and I postponed it until July!! Now I have all this stuff and actually consider having a yard sale on Labor day weekend. I must be nuts!!
Have a wonderful weekend and I hope you aren't too stiff from the moving.

I hope you didn't work too hard, Kay!!! I can't wait to see what you turn out for the craft show!

Hi Kay!

We need some type of "scratch and sniff" on your blog, lol!

My mom told me yesterday that she still has not used the soap you sent her (rose) because it just smells so wonderful :) When her senior friends come over to play cards they always ask where the wonderful fragrance is coming from.
They all love it!

Have a safe and blessed holiday!
