Good morning everyone.
We are getting very very cold at night still, but the days are gradually warming up here. Next week 50s almost every day-love that-except we are still in a drought here. The weather men are saying we are 13 inches below on rainfall so far.
I also want to mention again how much I love our eco fan from the amish store Lehmans. This fan does really throw the heat off the wood stove and it is so quiet-that is my favorite part. I had found them on sale on ebay thru Lehmans, so decided to buy another one for the second wood stove. sigh they were all gone, so I called them up-and they let be buy another one for the sale price since I had already purchased one. Looking for it to come in the mail today. These eco fans are made in Canada. A neighbor had come over for a visit on New Years Day and he spotted it on the wood stove-what is that he says?? he was quite amazed. lol
I am thinking of baking up an apple pie today-we have not had any sweet goodies since before Christmas here, and with apples in the frig-sounds like a plan for today. I also finished up my soap order so now just need to finish wrapping and packing it.
Yesterday I shared sales in my Kathyinozarks Fibers Etsy shop, today I want to share sales in myKathyinozarks Handmade Soap Etsy Shop.
I just finished marking down LOTS of bars of soaps-I am having a clearance sale on all soaps I have in my inventory at present, including peppermint bars, lavender, rose, and lots more. Oh and please do not be alarmed with the shipping fees, I had to have the prices reflect the east coast and the west coast from me-I refund back all overages on shipping over .50 cents.
I pretty much make all my soaps made to order now-especially since I have my listings set up for your choice of soap bases. This month I will be working on new products, and I continue to strive to make my soaps prettier. I will be adding soap with hemp, and a new bath tea for flu and cold season. Looking into making some new whipped butter moisturizers too-thinking of green tea or chamomile.
My new favorite soap base is the 3 butter-shea butter, mango butter, and coco butter. Really nice bar of soap for lathering and "feel good" on the skin afterwards. But then I also love the goat milk and shea butter too. I am happy with these bases as they are usa made, and all natural ingredients, no detergents. The new formula is more like a cold process soap so it gets harder over time and still lathers well.
So, I am off to make me a cup of hot tea, get out of my night shirt and into some jeans and get my day started.
Enjoy your new day!!
