This is my Autumn-Zin-Lily soap. I made this for a fall soap swap next month. It has Zinnia seeds in it and day lilly petals and it is scented with Autumn Afternoon fragrance oil.

Here are 2 of the soaps that I have been working on. The first one is my Patchouly soap that I unmolded last night. The second pic is my lime soap that I am felting for tomorow's market. In that pic you can see 2 of the soaps that are drying and then the other ones in the background that have not been done yet.

Saturday's Market

Here I am at Satuday's market. It went better then the last few weeks. I have to finish felting the last of my plain soaps for this Saturday. And I should have my first order from VistaPrint so I will have my car magnet up and new buisness cards out. I will also make sure I use my tote and have it where it will be noticed but out of the way.

Large Banner

I just ordered a large outdoor banner this morning. It was a great sale that I couldn't pass up. VistaPrint isn't charging shipping on anything over $30 for 48 hours. So I got a real nice banner for just under $39. I can't wait for it to get here so I can post pictures of it.

Cool stuff

I should be getting three new items for business on Friday. I will have 1 car magnet, 1 tote, and 250 business cards. They were all free and all I had to do was pay the shipping. Next week I will be ordering g a 6' x 5 1/2' outdoor banner! It looks great. When I get my stuff this Friday I will post pictures for everyone to see. Hubby said I could slap the magnet on and drive every where with it lol. I'll make sure I put it some where that people will be sure to see it when I am at the farmers market.

I knew I would have a lot of labeling to do over but wow. Although it still isn't as much as I had to to do the first time. I'm hoping to have everything changed over except for the sign. Also, I ordered a few things from VistaPrint website last night. They have a special going on where you can get free stuff to see if you like their company. I ordered 1 small rubber stamp, 1 car magnet, 1 tote, and 250 business cards and all I had to do was pay shipping! The tote looks great. I'm also really interested to see the magnet.

This is our resident toad. I found him today underneath my clothesline when I went to hang up the wash. We have been finding him in all kinds of places off and on. Our animals won't bother him either. O'ryan thinks he tastes nasty and I'm not sure if our chickens have noticed him yet.

Here is hubby from last Saturday's market. He has been such a big help and great supporter with my new adventure.


I just purchased a showcase slot on Etsy. They will be running my slot tomorrow. I really think this show case thing helps. It gets the word out and people can see my soaps right then and there. I made another sale a couple days ago as well!
