On a less joyous note, I've been sick a lot lately due to complications with my diagnosis, so I'm really happy that I'm getting so much done. I'd have even more done but I've also spent a lot of time in bed trying not to throw up. When I am feeling ok, I have a lot of work to catch up on with school (I'm in my last year of university), but some times I just want to make something - hence all the production in the studio. I have some extra doctor appointments in Feb to try to get my symptoms under control better. Hopefully I'll be feeling better afterwards and back to the superwomen I'm known to be ;)

A Few Steps Closer
I'm so happy to announce that this week I've really made some headway. I'm a lot closer to being able to officially open Batty's Bath! I still have a lot to do but I can see the end of the "to do list". Today I received a HUGE box of bubble mailers! I know bubble mailers don't sound very exciting but in this situation they really are. They mean that I'm that much closer to offering my bath products online! I've also made a good amount of headway with the production side of things. My shelves are filling up with yummy smelling soap, body butter, whipped soap, facial soaps, scrubs, shampoos and conditioners. I've even made "offline" sales even though I'm not officially open! I really think that's a good side that my family and I aren't the only ones that are loving my creations. There's been a lot of word of mouth spreading and the requests for my products are starting to come in. I've also had some great leads for getting my products in some local shops. There's so many exciting things happening right now that I can hardly contain myself!
