My oh my! I’ve had some health issues lately, but got a great email today to give me a boost. My wholesaler is having a site-wide sale. *happy sigh* Now to decide if I’m going to get more FOs (if I have to expand to a third page of listing of scents I worry that that might get overwhelming) or should I get some bases to expand what I actually make, instead of tons of scents for a limited number of things to.customize. *tapping lip*
I know that I’ll stock up on the bases that are my best sellers, like the different lotions and additives. I think that regardless of the shopping direction that I go I am going to get the key items to have a small, focused, line of Chronic Pain options. It is so near and dear that while I can splurge a bit, I’m going to make sure to be able to make something that truly lifts my spirit.
I have so many ideas and not many of them sell, as Larry keeps pointing out following seeing the losses when my business taxes were done (insert groan and please pity me lol). I like learning new things and as I continue to expand I then create the items that are my best sellers, so it’s hard for me to look at it in the same way that he does.
I admit to you that I have a few new things that come hell or high water I WILL be creating! I am itching to make bath cookies and some new lotion blends. I also can’t wait to get some new silicone molds (o.co has great deals on them – who’d have guessed??) and make some lovely new soaps. I want to make some rustic soaps, like the coffee scented w grounds in the bars for exfoliation, and chocolate bars with dark cocoa powder. *sigh* It’s absolutely exciting to me to think of new things that might bring happiness to someone. Maybe that one special thing will introduce them to pampering and they’ll finally take a few minutes out for themselves, preventing burn out and depression. What an awesome chance to have a good impact!
Anyway, I’m headed back to the website and my books to determine the spoils of this sale. *grin* I always get mixed up if clary sage is for the detox or is it…. 😉 Sweet dreams and a happy tomorrow!
