As it has been April since I last posted, you can be assured that things are been moving at warp speed around here. But such exciting stuff! Here are a couple items on the business side of things:
I was contacted by Milwaukee Public Television this spring and asked to recommend an outstanding vendor from the farmer's market I manage for a segment on an upcoming show on my town, Monroe, Wisconsin. I immediately named a favorite produce vendor but because of scheduling and produce availability conflicts, the next day I found myself and my soap business on the interview roster. Eeep.

A little side note: Over the weekend, I watched The Princess Diaries--remember that movie with Julie Andrews and Anne Hathaway? Well, the man who hosts the show is the very same John McGivern who appeared as trolley driver in the movie. How my little sis knew and remembered that bit of trivia I'll never know.
Also, I've begun a re-vamp of sorts, testing new fragrances and changing some things up as I streamline my product line. Really, it's a continuous task but I'm taking a more focused approach as I analyze what my customers buy. I feel a little heartless cutting some favorites, but that just means more of certain ones for me. :)
