Our Year in Review
We had a fantastic 2015! In fact, each year that comes and goes is the best year to date! Have a look at our year in review.
January – In this month we launched a staple in our line, all-natural lip balms!
February – In February we opened our studio doors for February First Friday, which proved to be a fantastic and bustling event. During the event we launched our Spring 2015 products. We’re excited to do it again next month in fact!
March – For us, March was a month of brain-storming and planning new products and events. We spent the month experimenting with new things!
April – We launched our super volumizing Beach Waves hair care bars in this month!
May – We were a part of Mayfest at the Pajama Factory, not only did we sell soap, but we also were a part of the STRUT fashion show which happened during Mayfest!
July – As we continued to grow through the year, it became necessary to put up more of our soap curing racks!
August – One of my biggest successes so far has been the building and launching of the website. It’s really great to have your own website that really shows what your business is all about. We still use Etsy, but at this point it is not as updated and nice as our site.
In August we also figured out a way to make our bath bombs year round rather than only when it is less humid during late fall, winter, and early spring.
September – In this month we launched our all-natural Sheer Lip Tints! We also had a great open studio event during First Friday at the Pajama Factory where we launched our Fall 2015 product line!
October – October was a busy month for us! In this month we launched our all-natural face washes and also did a lot of experimenting with making our own oils. We made tutorials for making your own coconut oil, as well as making your own avocado oil! We also had a fun interview released, which you can watch here!
November – In November we made lots of cat-inspired soap for the Beckoning Cat Project, a non-profit, low-cost spay & neuter clinic in Williamsport. They do a lot of great things for the community, so we donated 108 bars for them to sell. They kept 100% of the purchase price to go towards the good that they do!
In November we also launched out all-natural lip scrubs!
December – December was an absolutely amazing month for us! We had a very successful and fun holiday season. We kicked it off with December First Friday at the Pajama Factory where we had a table in the Artisans Market. It was a wildly busy night, and so much fun! The next day we started the Winter Farmers Market at the Pajama Factory, which is ongoing every Saturday between 10 and 2 until the end of April! We also had a fantastic interview on Bramble Berry’s Soap Queen blog, the industry leaders in soap making, you can read about that interview here!
We’re super excited to start another great year and have a lot of goals for 2016!
