Jump Started Motivation

So this past weekend I got a happy start of motivation and got 8 of my 12 candles done! Yay! So even though I am a little behind, I am still moving right along. Soon my shop will be full of fall goodies!

For now, I am attempting to expand to new horizons. I have opened a shop on Zibbet. So you can find me there. I am also auctioning on Tophatter, which is fun, but very difficult to crack. I just posted a few soaps on Ebay as well. I also opened up the floor to do online parties with BWS products. Exciting!

I'm spreading myself a little bit thin these days, but keeping myself blissfully busy. I am blogging for Bella's BNS team blog about social media sites. I am conducting shop critiques for the FEST team every Sunday. I started a personal blog that focuses on the married 30 something perspective of Sex and the City topics which will be up tomorrow. Fun!

What is going on at the Wright household?

Nothing much really! My hubby and I are waiting for my stepdaughter to return next week to start the new school year. 7th grade. Crazy where the time goes! My hubby and I typically inhabit different floors of my house. He overwhelms the living room with sounds of Halo or Family Guy, and I grace the master bedroom with the sounds of typing furiously and episodes of Fraiser or Prison Break. Right now, it is prison break.

What does a typical night at your house look like?

Sharing a Little News....

I have been stricken with a lack of motivation lately. It could be the two massive spider bites that I have endured in the last two months, or the heinous cough that I have from a passing cold. In any event, I am behind on my fall line (candles only). But, I am happy to report that they have been added to my weekend to do list and at least 8 more candles for fall will be done this weekend.

In other news, Black Willow Soaps is still having the Christmas in July Sale. 15% off for the month of July (which ends really soon). Just use coupon code CHRISTMASINJULY to get your discount at checkout!

Don't forget about the Soap of the Month and Candle of the Month Club! Our August picks are great for both clubs! Soap picks are Sweet Pea scented Avocado Cucumber Soap, Fireside scented Olive Oil Soap, and Earthy Lavender Shea Butter Soap. Candle picks are Apple Cider & Sticky Buns! Yum!

Today, I am spending a few hours volunteering for a local charity. What charitable contributions do you make?

Tophatter Success at Last!

I decided a couple of weeks ago to try out Tophatter auctions. I bought a really great necklace and earring set while attending my first auction. Unfortunately, the first few weeks of auctioning my listings totally bombed! The first time that I was up on the auction block, I felt like I was unprepared and I think that it showed to the audience.

This time, I nailed it. Several auctions later, I have found my niche! Black Willow Soaps fudge sold in live auction! I am just so excited! I was just about to throw in the towel on the whole thing, but I have been recharged. Yay, TH!
