Boy started school yesterday. (I’ll have to post pictures of him in his uniform. So adorable!) Today I’m making soaps and other goodies for a sample basket of each of the new gift baskets so I can take pictures. Yay! The gargoyles are cooling, the AromaBeads are soaking in essential oils, I’m putting together my new groovy mini misters, and I’ve codified what goes in each basket. Now I just have to run numbers to see how much they should cost.
Also, my giant organza bags got here…and they are, indeed, GIANT. They’re massive. I swear to you, I have no ability to judge how big something is going to be. I blame men and their constant lies about what constitutes 12 inches.
So…after someone gets their gift bag, they’ll have a massive organza bag with which to, I dunno, transport laundry, decorate a small ceiling, hide a body, create their own flag…something. They’re big. I think I’ll need to buy some more shred. Hee.
I’ve been asked to take part in a promotion, so in the next couple of days I’ll be making about 24 pounds of pumpkin soap. My house is gonna smell so fattening. It’ll be constant “Man, I want pumpkin pie!” action around here for a few weeks. Must join gym, so I can eat pie.
And now, it’s back to the soaping. Well, actually, it’s back to building a light cube so I can shoot pictures. My light cube is just massive, and because I’ve never figured out how to put it back in the original folded configuration, it’s kinda gotten warped from being stuffed in a bag. (I swear, I’ve had people with phd’s in engineering look at this thing…nobody knows how to fold it back up.) I’m just going to build a small one out of fabric, a plastic cube and some tape. That way, when I’m done, I can put away the lights and the fabric in the cube, and the whole thing is self contained. I do feel pretty dumb for spending all this cash on a “real” light cube, but live and learn I guess.
