It's Tuesday

I've been very busy this morning. I listed some more items on my zibbet shop http://www.zibbet.com/ssymmondscreations and my 1000markets shop http://www.1000markets.com/shop/ssymmondscreations. I'm trying to work on new photos for my items but the weather isn't cooperating with me today.

I also need to shred some more soap bars and let the shavings dry for my laundry detergent. Hopefully later this week, I'll be able to make my own soap. I don't know if I'll sell my soap online, but I do plan to make my own for my laundry detergent instead of using ivory soap. I recently learned that ivory soap contains tallowate which involves animals and I'd like to be able to offer my products to vegans. So, the ivory soap has to go in order to do that.

I'm also still trying to come up with new products, marketing strategies and more. I really need to get busy on my end. I've had a few sales in my Etsy shop http://www.etsy.com/shop/SSymmondsCreations but it's not enough to justify this business being my only job and my main source of income.

Hope you have a great tuesday!

My Military Monday

I'm doing my own sort of Military Monday. I'll be featuring a Homefront Team member every Monday (maybe more than one :)) For today, I'm all into candles so I'm featuring our two Homefront Team members who craft candles.

LilacAve sells candles of all shapes and sizes. From tarts to candles in various recycled containers, she has an AWESOME selection so check her out here.

Culinarychiqconcepts sells yummy and very realistic food and drink candles. From Blueberry Pie to Coffee to compliment it, she's your gal. Check her out here

Going to do better

I have seriously slacked on my blog. It's partially due to no followers and forgetting about it but starting today, I'm going to try to post on here daily and do my best to get some followers. I want to start doing features on my fellow Homefront teammates as well as my Will Craft for Food teammates during the week. I'm also thinking of doing a giveaway once a month for my blog followers. So I wiped out the handful of posts I had posted so far and am starting new :)
