My Goat Milk Soap Factory is better than ever

More space, more storage, more supplies, more designs. My factory and I are up and cooking. Be on the lookout for new designs, new colors, new fragrances, and new products. Taking a few steps back, a little time off, and loads of re-thinking has been worthwhile. I've developed several new products, new designs, and have …

Soap Making Factory is Almost Operational

As usual one thing lead to another. After the leak was fixed we had to scrub, sweep, and mop every thing. I'm almost through cleaning ... but not quite. Whew, right now I'm glad my factory is kind of small. Fixing up the factory is taking tons of time and energy. But ohhhhhhh the finish …

Remodeling Production Side of Our Factory

We've decided to take the time to remodel the factory area of our workshop. We found a leak in the space where I make soaps that needs to be fixed. That silly leak has not mended itself, Go figure. With all the wet weather we've had lately, it's just gotten larger. We're pulling a Holmes …

My strength is returning more every day

Recovering from surgery is taking a bit longer than I imagined. If you've ever had surgery before, you know how it zaps your strength and know what I mean. More than my inventory getting low, I miss making soaps. Working with my essential oils is a super big part of enjoying the soaps. And right …

Day TWO of Barn Cleaning: Too tired and too wet to take pictures

Don and I put our phones in his car so they wouldn't get wet. He put a CD in the car player and we worked almost all day. He finished washing the barn while I started cleaning stuff we'd removed. The task at hand is to clean everything BEFORE it goes back into the barn. …

We’re taking a ‘barn cleaning’ break

It's been long over due but we're cleaning the big barn. It's entirely too dirty to house newborns, and out of the question dirty for milking; we need 'sanitary' in the milking area. So, for the first time ever, I'm taking time out from making our goat milk soaps so I can get ready for …
