I have been on a roll, making more of these, but in different colours with different fragrance blends and I plant to make a few more. I've already done one white and one black and I want to do one blue and another pink. I'm just waiting for a fresh shipment of oils so that I can mix the fragrances that I've imagined for those.
I've also lost it! I'm going to be in a Christmas market next weekend with my soaps and some jewelry that my sister-in-law makes. The market idea just happened and I have no idea how it's going to go. I won't be selling the special blend soaps, but I've made some lavender and lemongrass ones with flower decorations. We have been selling soaps to friends and last week one friend took some samples with her to work and we got an order for about 25 soaps. That is a lot for us and we were thrilled. I guess it went to our heads and therefore the market seemed like a good idea.
I went today to scout out the territory. It's quite cute actually and since we've just had the first snow it looked really nice. It's this place where people can cut their own Christmas trees and then buy some coffe and waffles with cream and jam and also some crafts. Everything that is sold in this market has to be made or designed by Icelanders, so we fit right in.
I've been so busy printing labels and getting myself organized for the market that I didn't have time to do the Advent wreath today. Oh, well I'll get in done tomorrow, or the next day. There's plenty of time... isn't there?
