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.

It's time to get to work with the first stages of project work room...I'll be posting as usual on my Facebook page if you'd like to see progress. Have a great week and catch up with you soon!

  1. Enjoy the sorting out - it always feels like such a hassle while it's happening,, but creates a wonderful sense of achievement when completed :)

    1. Thanks Liz! And hopefully it all comes together...I'm a bit worried for space and trying to think of some soap-curing shelving ideas at the moment. Will post photos when it's all complete :)

  4. Sounds like a good plan, Tanya, good luck with it all (especially the diy!); it will be great when it's done. I know what you mean about the lure of the computer; mine is in the living room of my small flat as my son has taken over my laptop. It would be so nice to have a clear table for sowing, etc! Hope it all goes well for you, see you on the other side! Caro x
