My First Promo Offer

   As I have mentioned, I will be at an Arts and Crafts Festival on November 16th, held at Metro Life Church on Winter Park Drive in Casselberry. Recently, I have made a lot of soap and have some new varieties available. Two new ones are lemon soap and sheep's milk-oatmeal soap. They will be available at the arts and crafts festival along with all the other soaps and homemade items.
   The promo I am offering is this; For the goat's milk-oatmeal soap bars that are $3.50/bar, I will sell them at $3 a bar. The Fancy Soap that is $3/bar will sell for $2.50/bar. Here is the promo code:
Jesus is the Lamb of God. Either tell me the code or write it on paper and show it to me. Offer good on November 16th at the Arts & Crafts Festival at Metro Life Church. Some of the proceeds from the goat's milk-oatmeal soaps will still go to Sanctuary Ministries, a ministry designed to serve women who have chosen to go through their pregnancies and deliver their babies in spite of the many reasons they could have used to have an abortion.
   Other soaps available will be:
Volcano Soaps (4oz., 5oz. and sample sizes)
Lemon Soaps (contains lemon rinds - 4 oz. bars and sample sizes)
Sheep's Milk Oatmeal Soaps - (4 oz. bars and sample sizes)
Glycerin Soaps (last a long, long time- various sizes and shapes)

   Other items that will be available are:

Soap Plant - Chlorogalum pomeridianum

  Here's a different way to make soap. I haven't tried this yet, but I find this fascinating. I am so intrigued by this plant that I would consider growing my own if I could find some seeds or bulbs. This plant grows a nut like fruit (although it isn't in the nut family) that is used like soap. It even has some of the ingredients that soap has, built into the plant. How amazing! The Native Americans used this plant for soap. How cool is that?

Goat's Milk-Oatmeal Soap, 5 oz. bars or 4 oz. bars?

  I am about to make Goat's Milk-Oatmeal Soap and will pour it into a mold when it is finished mixing. I can cut the soap to make it 4 ounces or I can cut it up to make it 5 ounces. I wonder which one is preferable? Either way, the soap will sell for $0.875 an ounce. I don't have to cut it up until Monday. Four ounce bars are $3.50 and the five ounce bars will be $4.25 ( a little discount) or, if they come out too uneven in size, I will sell them by the ounce. I haven't decided on a price for sample bars, but probably will go with $1.50.
   Some of the money made from the Goat's Milk-Oatmeal Soap goes to Sanctuary Ministries, a ministry that serves pregnant women who refuse to have an abortion.
