We did our first "public" appearance I guess you can say that wasn't a yard sale today. It cost 35$ to have a booth there. They stuck us like behind everyone, but after I got home and counted and that I guess we did ok. The booth was $35 and we made 28.60 so we only lost like 6.40. I think that's pretty well for a first time. We almost broke even. Right?! I need to work on updating this more. It took me like 10 Min's just to get into this blog. Lol, i can't ever seem to remember my stuff for the different places I'm a part of online. The next place we're thinking of getting into is Roseville Tuesday nights. We're not doing it this week but hopefully next Tues til the last one on July 27th. We'll see what happens. I'll try and remember to keep you all informed. Thank you for the support. Here's my "Dads Coffee Soap" I came up with the other night in memory of my dad. I a pic of this in Facebook as well. God Bless.

I'm working on getting soaps made to put on ebay. We're thinking of doing a bargain sale on there. Like buy two big bars get one free sort of thing. Last night I decided to work on a soap for Working people in Mechanic's and Machinery it didn't work as well as I'd of hoped so back to the drawing board. I like experimenting it's fun sometimes. I want to Congratulate our Friends John and Aimee on the Birth of their first Son Carl was born yesterday around 530. CONGRATULATIONS YOU TWO. He is a handsome little boy. God Bless you and your new little family. I would also like to take this time to thank my Brother in Christ Jesse M. for helping get my soap name out there. God Bless you Little brother. Since your a fan now I hope you will check out my Ebay store. I am also in blogspot, and myspace. I hope to be filling your soap orders soon. God Bless and have a great one.

Well I sold two sample packs in the past week or two. YAY!!! Excited about that but we weren't sure how to do Sample's of the Scents. So we put a drop in a baggie wrote what the scent was on the bag and were letting people choose four scents. Well when they got their scents with their sample packs in the mail all the writing had come off by time they got it. :-( Plus all the scents like soaked through the baggies and mixed together pretty much. :-( So back to trying to figure out how to send sample's of scents. We're now thinking of trying them on a Qtip and than a baggie. Both people who bought from us suggested Cotton Balls. So we'll try the Qtip's and cotton balls. Hopefully it'll work better next time. If anyone has any suggestions please let me know. Thanks and God Bless.

Hi, Thanks you for checking out my blog. I Make Organic Homemade Soaps for you. Welcome to Specialty Soaps. Where you can choose your own Base, Scent and Size you would like. Don't forget our secret ingredient that comes in every bar!! That ingredient makes our soaps unique. Have you wondered what soap would be like with real fruit or fruit juice in it? Would you like baby powder, coffee, cinnamon, even real Lime in your soap? I am willing to put whatever you would like in your soap base. I even make a Citronella Eucalyptus Soap that helps keep Fleas and Ticks away from you and your pets whether it is you’re camping, hiking in the woods or just doing yard work. When you place your order please be patient. As it might take up to a week or more for the order to get out after payment depending on how many orders I have in and time of year. I will email you as soon as it’s made and when I ship it out. These soaps are CUSTOM made. They don't sit around and lose scent like other sellers. FRESH SOAPS!!!!!!! Our secret ingredient is 100% Organic and Natural so please let us know if you could be allergic to anything that's in the soaps. If your allergic to Nuts you will not want to use the Shea Silk base. When you get your soap use in a small area first to make sure you don't have any allergic reactions. I am not responsible for any reactions that may come from using these soaps. God Bless You and Thank you for shopping with Specialty Soaps.
