In the mix

Lately, I've been making a few orders thanks to my gals in UWIB. Etsy has been difficult for me to branch out, however, if this current trend keeps up I'll be recieving orders weekly instead of ever other month. My main sales have been from local shops, which is great but running to Monroe, Charlotte, Greensboro, Winston-Salem, West Virginia & etc is a bit much at times. I've thought about just shipping my products to the vendors but I prefer the face-to-face interaction with my partners. Plus I always love the chance for me and Madeleine to hit the road. She always steals the show.

Packaging is ever evolving it seems. I finally settled on a label design, thanks to an etsy artist. I used her banner she made for my shop as my company logo. Containers on the other hand I am still messing with. I've settled on a 2oz sample size, 4 oz standard size & an 8 oz large size. Although I may change my 8oz to maybe an 10/11 oz later on down the road. Clear containers so products can be seen...lids on the other hand a completely different story. I had orginally settled against white (even though I love the clear appearance it gives) and had choosen black. It just seems to made the packaging dark and uninviting. Once these containers are used up I am changing vendors and found a great vendor where I am offer silver aluminum lids. In my option it gives a nice clean, bright appearance.

Product line?

Bar soaps are still available but in limited quanities & scents. I am offering a 3 bar bundle currently with a soap holder to liquidate my current inventory. I think in the past I've been offering random scents but Såpeterapi will start offering making scents in bars, whipped soaps, lotions, bath bombs, perfumes & scrubs. That way someone can order their favorite scent in any product or even make a bundle with that scent. I will still offer my seasonal line-up but things will start to have a streamline look to make it easier for customers.

In other news... I just bought my second print from If you haven't yet had the chance to see her wonder works your truely missing out. I find her artwork affordable and one-of a kind. Truely a talented artist with a great vision.

If I had the money... I would own this at this very moment!! Available at A very talented artist with a surreal vision and a palettable array of art that will leave you wanting to buy every single one of the pieces. I found myself laying in bed last night thinking where I would hang this...

And lastly but certainly not least. The best one-of-a-kind / orginal idea on etsy I've found. Also the most usefull item
