Busy busy... 01:34 pm
today I reorganized the soap. See, I make it, let it sit for 2 weeks, then put it in paper sacks to finish curing. I had them stored in a large cardboard box - but Penny is *fascinated* by it. Not wanting nibbled-on soap, today I re-bagged everything and put it in a Rubbermaid tub.

And I boxed up a lot, too. 1 box went out in the mail today; I have about 15 bars boxed and ready to go. Just need to get the photos up (don't ask. Just - DON'T. :sigh:) and the website can go live. :sigh: Ran out of labels, or I'd have boxed up a lot more. :grin:

Ordered our tickets to see the Scrolls - can't wait! :bounce:

Gotta run - need to clear off the table. It has soap scraps on it. :lol:

Almost forgot.... 01:54 pm
we (the kids and I) spent a bit of time this AM brain-storming names for soap. I was typing up labels, and I really don't like using the scent name - because suppliers don't always keep the same scents, and...well, I just don't like using the names (sometimes I do, because I can't think of anything else to call it. :sigh:)

Anyway. I was typing up labels for my Oatmeal soap - the scent is named "Oatmeal, Milk and Honey". *I* wanted to call it "Winter Breakfast", but I asked for opinions from the floor. Himself said "Well, yeah, but what if you don't LIKE Oatmeal? Then the name might make people not buy it." I was a bit annoyed, so I popped off "What? So I should call it Oats-n-Goats?"....which was an instant hit. :lol:

So. The Beer soap is now "Tipsy Goat - (insert beer type)". We already have "Whey Cool (insert scent) " for the Whey soap.....I just need to come up with slightly descriptive names for the other scents. (For example, right now the Rosehip-Jasmine soap is "Grandma's Flower Garden". The scent is mostly Tea Rose, which I associate with my Grandma.....but I'm still looking for the "perfect" name. Somehow "Munching on Roses"......well, *I* like it, but I'm not sure it's *perfect* :rofl:)

Both kids want to call the Lavender soap something like "Counting Goats" or "Kids dreaming of Milk"....but I'm not sold on those. Maybe "Cashmere Dreams". :scratches head:

Oh....and the Sandalwood? I'm thinking of "Nubian Delights" or "Nubian Bazaar" (right now it's Marrakesh Bazaar......but, like I said, I'm still thinking.) If I went with Nubian Delights/Bazaar, then I could have Alpine (whatever) for a cool, wintry-type scent. (Alpines and Nubians are both dairy goats, in case you didn't know.)

And hey! What about "Pyrate Goat" for the Bay Rum scent? (I could keep going, you know. And getting sillier with every name. But I'll stop. For now. :snicker:)

Ideas welcomed - be silly! If I chose the name (or even something close - I'm fair!) I'll send you a free bar of soap. (Be careful, though - the first bit is what gets you addicted. :lol:)
