So it's Saturday afternoon now. I think I got up at around 5:30 this morning (pretended I was thirsty), jumped right on the computer and here I still am. How am I going to kick this new habit? Do I even want to? I have to, today at least. I'm leaving for vacation on Monday and I have to give myself a manicure & a pedicure. I need to get my brows waxed. I need to pack and I need to shop for stuff to pack. Did I mention that I have to do something about this mop on top of my head? Yet, here I sit on the computer. My daughter actually calls me a fiend. But it hasn't been a total waste because I got this great idea that I wanted to have a sale on soap this weekend at Etsy. Buy 1 bar, get the second bar at 50% off. Pretty darned good deal if you ask me!
It's been so much fun. I've had lots of inquiries so far and I've made some sales. At the beginning of August I set a goal that I wanted to sell 10 items for the month. I've already almost hit that goal!!! I'm totally ecstatic :) I got one order for some foot salve from a lady in England and I'm sending soap samples to another in Malaysia. Just the thought of my creations flying around the world makes me smile today.
Oh, and I got one other brilliant idea this morning but I'll share that tomorrow (if I ever get off my butt to bring it to fruition :)
