Long Island Fairs, Events and Soap Making
This is a busy time of the year for me. In the fall, there are so many fairs and events on Long Island to sell my handcrafted soap at. I wish I had time to do them all. Since I’ve started back at my day job, my time is limited. As soon as I get home from work, I’m soap making until I go to bed. Sometimes, I skip dinner. I’m grateful to be busy, because it means my customers like my soap. Instead of being overwhelmed, I’ve decided to look at being so busy in a different way.
Busy = Positive Energy
Soap making is energizing to me. Watching the oils and lye chemically turn into soap is something I never tire of seeing. At an event, I have samples of the different oils that I use in my soap and other products set out on my table. Customers can see and touch them. I think it’s important for people to see what my soap is made of. There is a reason why handcrafted soap is more expensive than the stuff you buy in the grocery store.
And I love talking to my customers! Talk about energizing! Watching someone pick up a soap, inhale, and seeing their face light up makes me smile. I can see their tension slip away before my eyes. And then they speak. “OMG what is this scent? I love it! It reminds me of…” and they go on.
I’m so grateful to be busy.
I’m so grateful to do what I love.
I’m grateful for all the Long Island Fairs that I do.
I’m so grateful my customers like my soaps.
I’m so grateful for all the help I get from my family.
What are you grateful for this week?
Yours in Gratitude,
