An eventful week- Happy 4th of July!!

I have had a very eventful and exciting week!  I spent most of the week getting ready for the new Farmer's Bazaar here in Roseville (California).  I live extremely close to this one, so I was excited to check it out.  Here are a couple pictures of my booth.  I took these with my phone...

Luckily it was pretty shady and not too hot most of the time.  I didn't really heat up until the end of the market at around 1:00.  As this farmer's bazaar is a new one, the crowd was pretty thin. Since I was warned that this was the case, I was actually surprised by the amount of people who came by to talk to me about my soap.  I am going to stick with this market through the summer because I think it has the potential to be really nice.  There was music and some wonderful vendors there.  I had a lot of wonderful conversation with people who work in the area, with some of the other vendors, and with people who came by to check out the new market.  I am already looking forward to next week.  This area is in need of some really nice farmer's markets, so I am excited to be involved in start of this one.

I was also really excited to be mentioned in the July/August issue of Saponifier Magazine, a magazine that is all about soap making.  I submitted my bio and pictures a week or two ago, and I was really surprised to see them in this issue.  I am beyond excited.

In addition, was interviewed by the delightful Betty Miller with Creative Soap Week. Check out my interview here.

And finally, my soaps can now be found in the Tiffany Berger Gallery on K Street in downtown Sacramento.Find more information (i.e. address/phone number) for this gallery on the side bar to the right.  Tiffany is a jewelry artist whose jewelry has beautiful garden influences.  If you are in the Sacramento area, definitely stop by her gallery and jewelry shop and take a look.

I am looking forward to the 4th of July, which is going to be low key and pretty uneventful for us.  It is starting to get super hot, so we are just thinking of inventive ways to stay cool while keeping the AC usage to a minimum. :) Happy 4th everyone!
