Inman Park this weekend!

We are busy busy gearing up for the Inman Park festival this weekend. The weather is looking good, which is a big relief. This is my first time doing a big 2 day show, so I have no idea what to expect. I've been making soap for 2 weeks straight! As I mentioned in my previous post, we will be premiering a NEW COLLECTION OF SOAPS as well as a NEW PRODUCT! Plus we've got some serious SALES going on, so be sure to stop by!

Unfortunately I'm not sure exactly where my booth will be located, so if you don't stumble into me, feel free to call: 404.808.6900. Click here for more info about the festival, as well as upcoming markets and festivals that Mama is doing.

Mama update

In the effort to become a better blogger, I'm going to start trying to write some short and sweet posts vs the occasional verbose rant. There will be more of those too, just with some other stuff in between.

I'm currently busy busy getting ready for the Inman Park festival which is in 2 weeks!! Times-a-tickin'and I'm up to my elbows in olive oil, making batches and batches of soap. My mom is making the trek from Ohio in a week to help me get ready and then she will be doing the festival with me, which I'm really looking forward to! She has been an amazing source of support and inspiration in my journey with Mama, and I only wish she lived closer to share it with me more often.

I will be premiering a SPECIAL COLLECTION OF SOAPS at Inman that I've been working on for the past few months, as well as a BRAND NEW PRODUCT! You'll have to stop by my booth to find out what it is. In addition to making the goods, I'm working on a plan to freshen up my booth a bit. I have only done the occasional festival for the past couple of years and this year I'll be doing most of the ones who will accept my application, so I decided it was time to funk it up. I just hope I have time to do everything that I want!

I have also have a new scent in the line called Fresh - it's a delightful blend of pink grapefruit, tangerine & lavender, and has been selling like hotcakes at the markets I've been doing.

I will get Fresh online after Inman. The plan was to do it before, but I'm trying to get better about pacing myself and prioritizing.

Also coming up on May 16th, I will be at the Kirkwood Festival. Hope to see you out and about enjoying our hard earned spring! I'm crossing my fingers for great weather...
