After my success at a double batch of awesome “acne bee gone” honey facial soap and the finishing touches on the dessert cake soaps I sat down with my worksheets.
I make my product recipes (even if I find a recipe somewhere I can’t resist deviating to add something more beneficial or that I just love lol) on scratch paper first, then figure up the costs on it, and type it later to go into my business binder. I have a habit of piling up my first draft recipes for quite a bit before setting down.
Ironically I dislike the math despite the fact that both of my businesses had a strong foundation on math. *wry smile* I’ve always loved numbers and excelled in school, but I tell you that Fibro fog has taken away all confidence in my equations. Lol.
So while I gave in to a guilty television pleasure (project runway and then followed with a cooking show) I did the pricing on all of my new recipes. I rechecked them twice and actually didn’t have any mistakes. *happy dance*
I then created item codes for using on my spreadsheets and in quickbooks. Then my totally kicking butt self updated my inventory worksheet, updated my Mom’s order worksheet (every few days she adds or changes something to the order lol), and even updated my individual ingredient costs spreadsheet that I use for figuring up the costs in my recipes. You’d be amazed how quickly that spreadsheet becomes outdated! I swear that the wholesaler and stores change their prices every week. *rolling eyes* I then added a few ideas to my product names list (only three have actually been picked and used yet lol) AND added some reminders to my event prep list. *making rock on sign* I freaking rock tonight. *big smile*
I need to update my site (and make a mobile version of it), package and label some products, type up the recipes, and update quickbooks, but I have all other paperwork caught up! Oh yeah! I may be stuck laying on the couch, but I can still have impressive moments. Lol. Anyway, I just had to share my little happy moment. *grin* If insomnia keeps me up much longer (seriously? 4AM all ready and wide eyed?) I’ll work on putting together some combos. I might treat myself to some Rob Pattinson (I know I ought to be ashamed since he’s young, but I figure that I’m showing my appreciation of God’s work on such a nice creation. I mean, an accent with that body is definitely something I should show my appreciation of *sassy grin*) and make some Twilight combo packs. I have a few more bookmarks and sticker packs to include as a limited time bonus with the three pack of lotions. Mmm, the more I think about it, I definitely think I need to play his YouTube clips of him singing and playing his guitar to give me some inspiration. *wink* Have a great day and fabulous weekend!! I’m going to go appreciate. Lol.
