Why I'm busy



My soap's in the Father's Day gift guide.

Of the June issue of Better Homes and Gardens magazine!



Holy cow. I'm hoping that business will be good, but not so good that I can't handle it. It's coming out this week... wish me luck!

Congratulations - looks good - wishing you all the best in your soap adventures! I'll keep that soap in mind for that special gift.

Sabine said...

Great news! All the best and just the right amount of business for you to handle!

pablo said...

Great news, girlfriend! Couldn't have happened to a nicer entrepreneur. Was this what you were hinting at a few posts ago?

Try to remember us little people when your up in the 101st floor of your corporate tower.

Gin said...

Good stuff! Fun stuff. But I understand the mixed feelings.

Dave said...

Man soaps? Where's Horse Sweat, Stale Beer, Gym Socks?

If the work becomes too onerous, there's always capitalism. You could hire a bunch of undocumented workers.

Seriously, congratulations - or whatever sentiment is appropriate here.

You better commence to making soap - I'm placing an order for my husband! Glad I ran across this, as I don't read BH&G.

Ericka said...

That's awesome! Congratulations!

Lacy said...

congrats! wow--- it's really gonna take off!

As a customer, I can say Natural Impulse soaps are awesome, though I make hubby use "androgenous" soaps like oatmeal and honey. I'm waiting for her to do a soap with cocoa or cloves.

meresy_g said...

Congratulations! How exciting. Wishing you the most work you can handle! I might have to try those soaps sometime after the rush.

Rexroth's Daughter said...

That is great news, and good luck.

Floridacracker said...

Super news! Now get off the computer and get soaping!

Twilight said...

yea for you! and i'm excited to see that you do not charge $10/bar like so many other handmade, homemade, locally grown, organic, etc. soaps tend to be! good luck... and if you need help,i've been thinking about the soap trade, myself :) (hint, hint!) well, not exactly, but it does sound appealling! maybe candles are more my thing... :) anyway - good luck and happy cleaning :)

I'm waiting for a barbeque-smoke soap, for rainy winter days whan I can't persuade Joe to go hang over the Weber with some ribs for half an hour. Sometimes the effect delays dinner a bit.

For its effect on the guys, maybe diesel fuel?

And congrats on the buzz!

Thimbelle said...

WooHoo! BH&G! That is *so* completely cool!

Congratulations - I hope this turns out to be the most *positive* thing for you!

T. :)

Wow. What a great plug!

Fire up the stove, I'm betting you'll need to replenish the stocks!

I am in awe- BH&G, now that's quite the compliment to you and your efforts. :)

Rainypete said...

Nothing like an unsolicited pat on the back to make your year huh? Now if t brings the customers along with the accolades you'll be set!

Marsha said...

Awesome!

elizabeth said...

fred said...

Maybe I should bathe more often!

Thank me for the cool weather over the weekend--i'm coming down to see mom in Hoover, and didn't want to sweat, so ordered up some mt weather!sn

The MacBean Gene said...

Good for you! Anything that helps us guys smell better is a wonderful thing. I did have to cancel my subscription to BH&G because even after telling them several times I was a Mr. they insisted on addressing me as Mrs.

Hick said...

Macbean: Funny!

Congratulations Rur...I love that magazine. I'll keep my eyes peeled for your ad.

farmgirl said...

Awesome. You go, girl! : )

deadmike said...

I gotta say, that my favorite soap was a teatree/mint combo made with hempseed oil. That stuff was made by some Saltspring Island hippies and the big difference between it and other teatree/mint soaps was that these guys didn't skimp on the essential oils. So when you used the stuff you could feel a pleasant tingle, and you could imagine it doing some damage to any fungal pathogens on your skin. I gotta pick some of that up next time I go home.

Impatient Patient said...

What a gorgeous blog!!!

Sky said...

WOWOW - congrats!

Hick said...

Ha!

I got my BH&G in the mail yesterday (pony express runs a little slow around here) and I saw your advertisement.

Congratulations.

Stu said...

We miss you!!

Clare said...

Um.. Rurality?... Are you still there?... Hello... Where are you?... I'm missing reading you daily.

Rhodent said...

Congratulations!~ I am sure you will be up to the challenge! Let us know how things are going when you have a spare moment!

Laura said...

Congratulations! How wonderful.
