I decided that in order to get all of my fall products completed and listed by the end of July, that I would need a schedule. So I set up my Windows Calender and listed tasks for every day. This week started out great and tasks were getting completed and deleted left and right. Thursday, I started getting stuck. I needed a break!

So, instead of making the Werewolf Sugar Scrub like I was supposed to (according to my Windows Calender Task List), I went out with my husband and had a meal at a restaurant (something that we haven't done in a couple of years, at least). I let the hubby pick the restaurant, and despite the fact that he had eaten Mexican food for the past three meals, he chose a quaint little Mexican restaurant in Lehigh Acres called Lozanos.

The only good thing about this restaurant was the projection screen that was playing Toy Story 3. Unfortunately for me, my back was turned from the screen with left me to focus on my very greasy Taco Salad. After the restaurant, we decided to take a trip to the park and walk along the trails to get some exercise. Half way through, the Mexican food caught up with me. We had to high tail it to Walgreens for a decent bathroom, and made it just it time! Now I remember why we don't eat out together!

So yesterday, I got caught up on my tasks and I have some great new products coming soon! Here are some of the late summer additions:

Sea Breeze scented Olive Oil Soap with Poppyseeds

Jamaican Me Crazy scented Shea Butter Soap with Orange Peel

Coming Soon to Black Willow Soaps!

It has been a while BWS fans! I apologize. I got this HUGE spider bite on the side of my neck and it just wont go away. But, I am fighting though the pain to give you some updates on what is coming to Black Willow Soaps! I am just that excited!

New Soap is coming! We are starting to put together our fall soap line. Stay tuned for Bite Me scented Olive Oil Soap with Sesame Seeds. We will also be launching some Pumpkin Spice Soap. I'm not quite sure if it will be a Shea Butter or Avocado Cucumber Soap yet, but it is coming! Which would you prefer?

New candles are coming! Our fall line of candles is going to be coming soon as well! Busy, busy! Stay tuned for some great new scents! We will have Pumpkin Spice, of course, as well as Wicked, Bite Me, The Witching Hour, Bogeyman, and Werewolf! We are also thinking about Witches Brew...what are your thoughts?


New fudge is coming as well! I was asked by an etsy member to come up with a fudge that combines the creamy chocolate fudge that is already a part of the Black Willow Soap line, and the citrusy sweet taste of orange! I have done it! This fudge is chocolate on the bottom and has a layer of orange flavored, white chocolate on top! It is to die for!


Best of all, Black Willow Soaps will soon have their own website! Yay! I am working on the final touches and will be able to offer my products at a small discount compared to the prices on Etsy! We will still be on Etsy though! So, no worries there! I will keep you posted on all of our news!

Don't forget about our Soap of the Month and Candle of the Month Club! We will have some really great items coming for these soon! I will announce July's picks soon!
