Oh Soap.

Good news!  School is going great this semester.  I made a 98 on my first calculus exam and a 96 on my first econ test!  But when it comes to science, I made a C.  I am definitely made out to be a business person!  

Spring break is right around the corner.  Today is actually my last day of classes until my spring break!  Ben's spring break is the week after mine.  We won't be able to see each other for three weeks :( Buttttt I'm leaving on Wednesday to go to Charlotte, NC with two of my good friends, Jenna and Lindsey.  We will be staying with her cousin until Saturday.  I'm really excited because I've never been to Charlotte!

I also just got a new job yesterday!  I am probably going to keep both of my jobs.  Oh goodness - a college student, working two part-time jobs, and trying to start a company... this could get interesting!  My new job is at a pet store.  I'm really excited because I love animals :)  However, this weekend will be so busy as I transition to trying to work on a schedule for both jobs.  I work at Otter's on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.  Then I work at Otter's and the new pet store on Monday and Tuesday - Morning shift at Otter's while I'll have the night shift at the pet store.  Good think it's my break!

In my last post I talked about all of my upcoming shows.  The first one is in April!  The Big Shanty Festival will be my first two day show, so I have been soaping like a mad woman.  I want to be sure I have enough product for both days.  Since this show is in Kennesaw, I will be able to bring more soap the second day from home if my supply starts getting low.  I don't think I'm ready for shows too far away from home yet.

Oh Soap.
Haha one thing I have come to realized as a soapmaker is that a soapmaker always needs something.  Either I've ran out of lavender essential oil, or I want/need a new soap mold, there is always something.  I had thought when I placed my last order from my suppliers that it would get me through my first show of the season.  Nope.  Ran out of purple mica when I was making some lavender soap three days ago.  So I figured I better order it so it'll be in by the time I get back from North Carolina.  Guess what!!!  My supplier has discontinued the purple pop mica that I use to color my lavender soap.  So now I'm on the hunt for several micas to order to replace all of my pop micas.  If there are any soapers out there having the same problem, have you found any replacements for any of the pop micas?  I am in desperate need for a good purple mica.  I'm pretty sure I have enough of the others, but since lavender is my best seller, I need a bunch of it.  Blahhhh it makes me nervous!

Anyhoooo, I'm on the way to drop of a copy of my driver's license and a void check so my new job can get me set up for direct deposit.  Then I must do some studying for my science test today; I really need to do good on it!

Have a Reviving day!
