Update on my Lotion Bars

With the holidays fast approaching us I have tried to kick it into full gear and make my Lotion Bars more of a real business to try and make money from home now that I have quit my job at the church and I am staying home full time to homeschool Alyssa this year.
So I thought, if I am going to get serious about this I need to do labels and buy containers to make these in and tins and containers to sell them in and bags to give them out in when I sell them and so on-to make it like a real product you would buy in the store.
A few weeks ago I got on line and purchased all that good stuff and this week I am having party at a friends house to sell candles (I am a demonstrator for Gold Canyon Candles on the side lol) and my Lotion Bars.   I am excited to see how it goes and if I may be able to make a go of this and bring in a little extra income for our family while being at home doing something I really like doing.
So here are some updated photos of my Lotion Bars in there new containers along with the sizes and prices-they make great Christmas gifts and stocking stuffers (hint hint-lol)!

THE 4 SHAPES AND SIZES I AM MAKING

THE HEART SHAPE-3.5 OZ FOR $6.50

THE SQUARE SHAPE 3.5 OZ FOR $6.50
THE CIRCLE TIN 4.5 OZ FOR $8.50

THE RECTANGLE TIN 5.5 OZ FOR $10.50
THESE ARE 3 FLOWER SHAPES IN A BAG  A LITTLE OVER 1.5 OZ FOR $3.50

I wasn't going to make these but I decided to try it and make them for the party I am having on Thursday-I figured it might be a way that people might buy them without having to put out as big of an  investment in them until they try them and like them.  So I am making these as well hoping that maybe this way people might buy them, try them, like them, spread the word, and buy more.
Praying that if it is something I am supposed to do that at some point I might even be able to do something where I can donate a portion to some of the blogs I follow they are trying to raise money to adopt a child or something like that.   Only God knows what will come of this-I am praying that I would be opening and willing to do whatever He wants of me to do with it and bring Him glory along this pathway!

Saltines and Sprite! lol
Loved your Fruits of the Spirit Idea-they will learn so many things this year through that-things that will matter for a life-time, things that mold us and make us into what God would want us to be.
Way to go Super Mom!
Love
