Just a quick update today from me; the show on Saturday went fantastically, and I met a lot of great contacts. I would be a fool if I didn't go back next year! There were so many people at this trade show, there was a line up at the front of the school where it was being held. It was three floors; the basement and the second floor had workshops and vendors; I was on the main floor with all vendors. There were candle makers, female authors, tarot card readers, massage therapists... it was some great fun! My next door neighbor was a registered massage therapist and gave me a fortune cookie with a great fortune inside. I was successful the rest of the day! Sold out of headache relief sticks, nasal congestion relief sticks, Fight Club soap, hand cream sample pots, acne bar samples AND lip balm! (I think it was Pina Colada? I don't remember now lol)
I also just wanted to let everyone know that from now until Friday February 6th I have a 'Make me an offer' sale going on. I am raising some extra funds because I am adopting a three month old baby chinchilla that was brought into the local Humane Society my sister in law works at yesterday. He's still in good health despite being shoved in a box and thrown into the garbage, the poor little babe. He did nothing wrong. He cries a lot (like a whining dog, that's what he sounds like) but he accepted some dried fruit from me and let me scratch him between the ears. He will be coming home on Friday to his forever home! My husband is naming him 'Cobra Commander' because he always played with G.I. Joe's when he was little.
Visit my store at: http://bubblesnsuds.etsy.com and browse!
FREE STUFF INCLUDED. And who doesn't like free stuff? You get a free pack of cinnamon heart soaps and any purchases of $20.00 or more will get you lip balm... FREE! Pampering yourself, and helping out the most adorable little critter, it goes hand in hand.

I am looking for some sellers to do a feature on in the coming weeks especially if you are a relatively new seller. All you have to do is comment my blog here and check out my shop!
I've been working a lot lately to get ready for a show I have coming up January 31st; I was considerably worried about doing a show that was going to be all bath and body vendors, but I recently got a list of all the vendors that are going to be there, and I will be the ONLY handmade bath and body company there. All others are Avon, Mary Kay and others like that, so I hope people will give a chance on handmade! I will have two six foot tables in an L position though since this Festival is in a school I do not know where I will be set up until I get there Saturday morning. I got some nice new black sheets to use on the tables and I am going out today to look for some items to use on the tables.
I also have brought my face care line to Etsy, including a cleanser, toner and microdermabrasion cream. I just have to say that I LOVE my microdermabrasion. Leaves your skin so smooth and soft.
I also added Look-a-like Lego Soap!
You can see the Lego soap HERE at my Etsy store! Check it out!

Its been a busy month so far; I've got a big show coming up Saturday January 31st, which I am excited and nervous about! It's called Pampering Fest, so ALL the vendors there will have bath and body products, though I am up against people who sell Mary Kay and Avon. They may have an established name but I am hoping they will give all natural items a chance! Plus, I have this really great new soap (its great for the hubby, he couldn't wait to use his bar today!) The color turned out great on this one, I think! The scent is Peppermint Essential Oil, but I have added the option to customize it by listing all my available scents (about fifty) so you can choose the scent! May I just say it is fantastic in a Chai Tea scent?
Also, for anyone looking for Project Wonderful ad space, I am looking for some handmade artists that would like their ads viewed for FREE on my website. You can find the ad space at: http://www.bubblesnsudssoapco.com/links.html You do have to have a Project Wonderful account to get the ad space, but it does not take long to set up, and you can get great ad space for FREE!
I guess that's it for now... I am hoping when I have more time I will be able to start doing features on handmade sellers. Keep an eye out for that!

...But I am trying my best to keep up with everything!
ArtFire has been taking a lot of my time lately, but that's alright, because I definitely love that site, and I've been sharing it with everyone lately!
There's something else that I would like to share too; a new little feature on ArtFire! Come Window Shop with us! I've added my own Window Shopping post at the end of this, so if you like what you see, I suggest you pop on over to ArtFire and see what's new. I have tons of new items added in my ArtFire store, including a luxurious coconut creme bar; its great for shaving! That's it there on the left side; doesn't it look fabulous? If you love the scent of coconut, you'll love this bar. It reminds me of being on vacation somewhere tropical, like on my favourite beach in Hawai'i with a Mai Tai. Yum! Who knew a soap could evoke so many memories? haha.
Also, I will beginning to do a lot more custom orders after Christmas; right now there is just too much that needs to be done to allow me any more time to dedicate to making anything brand new yet. I am thinking of bringing in a botanical facial wash and toner; I am not sure if I will sell it in a set though, or offer individual purchase as well. My cocoa butter melts are all made up now and ready for their photo shoot... something I honestly dread. Taking photos. I'm not good at it, no matter how hard I try! Though, I must admit, I do like how the coconut bar photographed... I will keep working on it.
I suppose that's it for now; here is my ArtFire Window Shop, feel free to browse! I've got some great sales going on right now.
