I found out that the 100 cancer ribbon soaps for the Sunset Stroll (see previous post) are needed by the 19th, which includes my actually getting the soaps to Overbrook. I pushed myself the last few days to make a batch whenever I did dishes. I honestly didn’t think that goal would ever happen, but boy did it work! I made 77 of them. Added with previous pours and I’m well over the needed amount. Have enough to donate a few, even. Yay! I admit that I really, really don’t want to do pink ribbons again for awhile! Lol. Even makes me reconsider the colors for some Christmas gifts. *grin* It’ll pass soon, I know.
I learned something about myself while pushing to finish this order as quickly as possible. I have creation ADD, I think lol. I do great when there’s a lot of variety. I get bored making the same thing a lot apparently.
Anyway, on now to make some new extra items for my table for the event in a few weeks. I will probably clean out my booth at the craft mall (I don’t get much purchased there anyway) and have that all on hand for the event. I’m seriously hoping to get a few sales this month. *grin*
Oh, very cool news too!! I got a phone call the other day from a gal that got my card from my booth at the craft mall. She invited me to have a booth at the Shriner’s event next month. I’m really interested, but need to see if I’m doing the November event before I give a definitive answer. I can’t do all three. She said she thought I’d be a very unique and profitable addition to the booths. How cool!!
In the meantime, I will have to clean my booth out at the craft mall soon. My lease is up on Oct 15th. I got one hit in 6 months, so I can’t justify paying another 6 months of rent. I think when we get the stuff out for the Overbrook event that I’ll just keep the products shelved at home and work on marketing in a different way.
I seriously would like to do some marketing via FB ads, Webstart (my website’s parent *wink*), WordPress marketing, and the big search engines. Not in my financial grasp at the moment, but it’s shimmering at the top of my to do list. *grin*
I hope you have a great day and thanks for putting up with my random thoughts!
