To Market, To Market....selling my SoAps!!

I am so excited to be a part of our local community Farmer's Market this year.  Opening day is May 18th (which btw is my parents Anniversary) which means I'm amazingly busy behind the scene setting up, organizing and planning all kinds of things.

I'd like to do a different table set up than what I did in the past.  I've been playing around with some things in our basement and here is my initial mock-up....be gentle many tweeks still need to happen.  I'd like to get a vinyl banner sign to attach to the front of the table that displays my logo.

Other than prepping for Market, I've been putting the finishing touches on some Baby Shower soaps.

Oh shame on me...

I have neglected you blog!  I'm sorry please don't take it personally, I've been super busy!!!

I recently had TWO patterns on Ravelry's 'HOT RIGHT NOW' tab...yep, two!  I was freakin out with excitement....(perhaps you have to be a knitter to totally understand the joy).  I attached a snap of the screen shot just to prove it...not that I was thinking you had any doubts.

I was #5 and #8...out of 250,564!!!  

AND...I've been making SOAP!

I had two orders for Baby Showers and have been putting the finishing touches on the batches, labels, etc and making a bunch of other batches.....pictures always tell a better story than me trying to describe them...plus who doesn't like pictures of soap???

 Rose Clay & Charcoal (updated version)

And the finished soap.... used alkanet root infused oil embeds in Nettle..yellow is turmeric infused oil

Soap patiently curing.....4-6 weeks 

I love all of the colors...all natural, nothing artificial, synthetic, dyes or otherwise harmful in anyway.  I think most of the colorants I used you could probably eat!  Most..not all, but please don't munch on the soap.
