Went to Market last night and did above average—PLUS–it was so great too see all of my market buddies and regular customers again! Big Smiles! I LOVE being a vendor at our local Farmers Markets. I wish I didn’t have to work at my “real” job and that I could just piddle around in my gardens, wildcraft, and offer all of my products full time! It gives me so much joy
Heheheh–I am the ruling and reigning soap goddess around here. I go to 2 markets primarily–Hanover and Marysville–and sell my soaps, balms, and herbal tea blends. Sometimes I take my guitar and goof off for folks. It’s so much fun…I love the other vendors, my kind of people…others that love to work with the Earth; laid back and friendly folks. Oh—and if you are a little white haired Grandma selling baked goods you are just about guaranteed to sell out everytime!
I HATE craft fairs, ugh. The hours are too long and tedious, and most fairs are open to vendors selling corporate products such as Scentsy and Tupperware.
My busy season will soon be upon me and today, my day off, I’m going to be crafting and getting ready. Plan on making 5 large batches of soap, infusing herbs for balms, and working in the gardens a bit. I’ll be thinning out the comfrey so if anyone needs some I have it listed on Ebay. http://www.ebay.com/itm/330706202987?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649#ht_500wt_949

Ah….what else. We have had rain the past three days and hoping it will clear out today. Every day I believe my plants have grown at LEAST an inch! Everything is so green and beautiful!
Her’s a little Springtime poem….
‘Cross the tundra of my soul
May the blessings of the Green, and all that is green and bright and beautiful, be yours!
