Handmade Handcrafted Soap - Bar Soap User Conversion

Retailer Client email sent today: "Carol, I have to tell you a funny story. A long-time customer came into the shop today and asked what new liquid soaps I had in. I pointed her in the direction, and on her way she passed a display I had of your soaps. She bought 12 bars! And NO liquid soap! Funny how even non-bar-soap-users suddenly change their minds when they see your soap. Thought you'd enjoy that chuckle!" - Anna, CA
(Thank you, Anna! Yup---love to entice even non-bar-users! Muwhahaha!)

Handmade Soap - World Traveler

So never know WHERE your products may end up! You make 'em with love, wrap 'em, send 'em out in into the world, and they end up in .....the Ukraine! A lovely customer told me she sent boxes of my soap to her family there and they loved it! That tickles me!

Most Biz's Do Not Run on The Strength of ONE Only.....

Husband David and I. 
I like to give credit where credit is due, and sometimes supportive spouses/partners don't get nearly the recognition they truly deserve! I couldn't do all that I do as a business without his support, inspiration, and help in SO very many ways--especially his business expertise he shares (business owner himself)....or maybe I *could* do it all on my own, but it wouldn't be nearly so enjoyable! We don't always see eye-to-eye on absolutely everything, and there's intricacies to his biz that don't exactly apply to mine, but I always value his perspectives and take them very closely to heart. Our differences are the two balancing halves that make a more interesting whole. And when it's been a long, hard day and I'm still packing soap orders into the late hours, or I'm compelled to finish one more part of a painting...he jumps in automatically, says "Do what you need to do!", he feeds the critters, gets dinner ready....seriously, the best sort of work as important and valued as his.
So here's to all the great partners in crime, biz, life & passion! They make it all so worth the hard work! Thank you! ~Carol
