With Mother's Day come and gone, all of my mother's day baskets that were ordered completed and sent out, as well as soap finishing it's cure, I feel I'm playing catch up. Or have been the past few weeks.
Tomorrow and Wednesday are my last finals for the year, and between soaping and personal life I havent had much time for education. Granted, my professors are amazing and understanding, and have been flexible enough with me to where I am still able to complete my assignments, though I still find myself spinning my tires.
The job hunt is going well at least - I interviewed for a job int he copy/print center of Office Depot, which seemed to go well enough, now just waiting to hear back from them, hopefully, by tomorrow.
I've also finished packaging a selection of soaps to take to several stores along Main Street in the next week, seeing if I can;t find some wholesale clients, or even dropping some off at the consignment store in the library (though their rate is kind of balls, if the items are more expensive -- learned the hard way from a slightly-more-than-half cut for one of my pricier handmade journals).
In terms of soapy news, however, I have cut the bars form my latest two batches: the peacock and the coffee soap!
As you can see -- I'm experimenting with outside pictures. Woo!
I entered into Bramble Berry's Instagram contest, #soapcrafting, using the following images. Let's keep our fingers crossed for these!
I'm also trying to find the time to be more health conscious - I wouldn't mind dropping a few pounds, and my OBGYN said it would help over the next few months anyhow, as I'm changing my prescription for birth controlf rom a pill tot he 3-month shots, and weight gain is common with it. My arms feel like limp noodles from all the reps I did in the apartment weight room -- yowza! We'll see how they feel tomorrow, as I need to make a special order cherry soap for a client's husband.
So how was your Mother's day?
