Monday Monday

Edited to add: don't forget the One World One HeART give away

I worked on the soap shop today so I could get in there tomorrow and catch up on my soap making. I planted some pansies in the window boxes and hung a wreath on the door.
I took all my shipping envelopes out of their boxes and put them on the shelves for easy reach. The guest towels, candies and little extras I include in my packages I placed on top of the shelves above the envelopes for easy reach and easy to remember to put in package. The flowers and things I use when I take pictures are in the baskets on the bottom shelf.
I straightened up the cabinet with my oils and scents. Think its time to order some more.
Made labels for the soap storage boxes. Its easier for these old eyes to read them now.Cleaned out my soap mold drawers and labeled them.
Cleaned out the drawers and labeled where I keep my tags, bags, herbs, flowers, etc.
Even cleaned up my table a little so its all ready for tomorrow.
Now all I have to do is get myself out there first thing tomorrow and get busy making soaps! Can you tell which egg is blue? My "easter hen" as I have been calling her laid her first egg here at her new home. The other 2 are still too young.
The rest of the eggs came from the big chicken pen. I think one of my teenagers may have laid that little white one. I also set out 4 blueberry bushes today. The cabbage, onions and lettuce are growing. Still having some cool weather here but today was sunny enough to get somethings done outside.

Peggy - is your cute shop open for soap and cheese sales to the public? And do you sell your eggs? I love fresh eggs from free range hens.
Perhaps I'll come see you next time I head down to Fayetteville from Raleigh. Here's to our fabulous Carolina Blue skies.....and getting bluer by the week.

Your soap shop is really nice! Looks like you are all set to do some soap building. Take care.

Good job to the "Easter Hen".

Oh I would just kill to have that soap shop! How WONDERFUL and organized!

Don't you love Auracanas? We're getting two light blue, one green, one taupey green, and several pick speckled each day. They are just so adorable!

Your shed is really a dandy space. You are a regular Miss Tidy! Would you like a working vacation. My place needs some tidying up;)

When we had chickens we had some that laid blue and some green. I always thought that was cool.

Marci said...

Your workshop looks wonderful Peggy. What a pleasure it must be to step into that type of organization!!!

I have over 200 scent oils and the "filing" system has never worked out so well :) I tried to separate them by food smells, florals and perfumey scents with the labels on the top of the caps and that didn't work, I'd always lose a few... always an organizing game. Your workplace looks neat and organized now :) Time to start creating! Your soap looks wonderful and the goats are too adorable!!! I'd say it looks like a lot of fun but I know it's probably a TON of work! :)

I stopped by Gills Farm today and bought some of your soap, its fantastic!

I am wondering if you sell wholesale? I may be interested in selling some of your soap on our website.

Please let me know.

God Bless!
