I Should Really Explain


I should really explain my absence and sporadic posts. I used to be pretty good at posting every few days and now I'm lucky if I get over here and do anything once a week. I am sorry my soap friends. Do not give up on me. Here are some of my reasons...


Number the first: Wholesale soap orders have increased which eats up a lot of my time (and space).

Number the second: I've had to stop working at 2:30 to study and tutor my son for months. We are having issues. Enough said. Stopping my work day at 2:30 has really cut into my production and income which doesn't help matters one bit. We're finding ways to change this problem, but for the moment it's painful.

Number the third: My personal life has so much going on that if I even start typing about any of it I will breakdown - - there is just more going on than one person should have to bear. So overwhelming. Enough of that. Don't ask, don't feel sorry for me. I'll get through it all and I know there is light at the end of the tunnel. It's just an awful time and I'm explaining why writing has been hard.

Number the fourth: I haven't been blown away by soap that has come this way in a while. I really liked Jackie's salt soap (Magic Hands), but she closed shop and I have all her recipes, so there's that. I need soap to stun me again. So if you think you have a soap that will stun, please send it to me. (no lavender - but really, do I need to mention that :) )

I have missed you and your comments and support. You all are my friends and I love having you come to this blog, so please forgive my absence and let me try to get it back on track as I stumble through this crazy life of mine.

I'm not asking and I'm not feeling sorry for you. I'm just wishing you well, sending positive energy (but no non-stellar soap) your way and saying, "Hang in there!"

Take care--

The best part of this internet world is, we are still here.
You take what you need to from life right now, thankfully time moves along, sometimes good and sometimes bad, but it never stops. Life happens! I'll be waiting in the wings for your happy and peaceful return :)

I'm fairly new to soapmaking, so I don't know that I have any stunning creations, just yet, but if I did I would send one your way! I've enjoyed your posts and appreciate the update.

I love your blog, no need to apologize. I'm brewing up something that will hopefully be stunning, or at least bring a few happy thoughts. I'll see what I can do.
