Blogging Break this Week
I’ve been putting it off for some time but now the deadline is drawing near – I need to sort out my new office and work space. Later this month I’m getting a roommate so need to move my home office from upstairs to the little room under the house. Right now it’s filled with kitchen units needing to be fit, a desk needing to be built, and walls and ceiling in dire need of painting. So this week I’m taking a little break from blogging so I can concentrate on getting organised downstairs.
It’s actually going to be a good move for me I think since it means that I will have to go out the house and in through the separate entrance “to work”. Right now, I don’t have a clear delineation between personal and work space so I’m pretty much always on my computer working when I have spare time. This move will be good!
Aside from that, I’m still recovering from two days on my feet at the Royal Manx Agricultural Show. It was a fantastic weekend though and I really enjoyed meeting friends and customers, new and old. I’m pleased that a lot of my handmade soap, candles, gift sets, and body balms, found new homes and that I received so many compliments on both my stall and my products. I’ll be back at it again this Saturday at the new Farmers Market day in Douglas – every third Saturday the market will set up outside the Regent Street post office so mark it on the calender.
I’m also very happy that my two newest products did very well at the show! I’m now offering Peppermint Foot Balm and a Calendula Healing Salve in addition to my other body balms. I’ll have them for offer and sample this Saturday and am also taking an order of them into Abode on Friday. They’ll be available at other retailers shortly.
