Well, who woulda thunk it?

Last week Etsy Admin started a thread that they were looking for B&B experts to submit product write ups. Of course, being the lurker that I am, I started reading the thread and naturally there were plenty of "pick me, pick me" posts but then there was 1 post from an individual named CMaille which halted me in my tracks. This individual just outright told everyone in the thread that Morgan Street was the best and gave the best customer service, yada, yada, yada. I didn't know whether to wipe my tears before falling off the chair or vice versa. Within minutes, I got a convo from Etsy asking me if I'd be interested in doing a write up. Of course I was elated but then it all started to sink in.

I'm no EXPERT! What the heck do I know about anything? Yes I make lip balms and yes I think they're lovely. I stick to one tried and trusted recipe, I don't use color, I don't use sweeteners so what the heck can I tell anyone that could be considered enlightening? Panic started to set in, and I'm not going to lie, it took me almost a week to write the few paragraphs. I closed my eyes and clicked send in email and off it went.

I don't know if they'll use what I wrote but at least I know I tried and that's all we can do right?

Thanks CMaille - you're the best!

What's your name?

I know, I know, I've been missing forever! I'm here now and that's all that counts.

So - back to the task at hand. A quick update and a request for your assistance. I made this batch of soap for our upcoming EGCG Swag Bag sales and for my soap of the month subscribers. For the swag bag I'll be submitting 2oz bars but for the monthly subscribers they will get full size 4oz bars. Either way, I'm stumped for a name. It's a combo of Gardenia, Coconut Lime and Cherry fragrance oils (in that order). What do you reckon?
UPDATE..................We have a name!!


Don't you think it's perfect? I do!
