Hannah’s new blog is up and limping. We still have a long way to go before I’d call it ‘professional’ but not bad for a technically challenged mom to pull together in an afternoon. My next big challenge is to set up the paypal option.
I posted several questions, and based on feed back, we’ll be making several batches of Hannahmade Soaps next week. If you have a request for a certain scent and would like to order for delivery for the Holidays, please let me know.
We are putting together an ensemble called “Spa in a Box” which you can read more about on our blog.
I’d love you input and suggestions. I’d really like to see this little venture turn a profit for my daughter. I have resisted for so long, but finally just decided that I needed to open doors for her instead of shut them. Who knows... she might be famous one day!
Also, I’d like to know your thoughts on the name “Hannahmade Soaps and Scrubs“. I thought it was a cute spinoff from the word Handmade. I really wish we had a mold that said Hannahmade... maybe one day.

    • Paypal is incredibly easy. We have a shopping cart set up, and everything. I still have a few little things to ‘clean up’ but for a freebie, I am really pleased with the site.
      We got our first order (woohoo) as a result of entering the HP Giveaway. And on Monday, we have 8 Spa in a Box orders to fulfill. I am excited for her.

    • i have to tell you I LOVE MY SOAP!

      i love how even with soft water how it just rinses right off! no soap film, or ” soapy ” feeling when i rinse off!

      thank you for this great opportunity to try a great product!

    • I am glad you are enjoying it Linni. What scent did you get? I am getting mixed feedback on the lavender (which I sort of expected since I was not pleased with it either.)

      Lavender was the soap that was cut like crinkle cut french fries.
      Just as an FYI - We ordered a different Lavender fragrance, so we are back at the drawing board.

    • Oh, finally!  Thanks, for the soap I found waiting among the mountain of bills when we got back from Florida!!!!  Yes, good description with that lavender-scented soap that I got.  Was it not supposed to have a scent?  But my HUSBAND used it ALL!

    • Awe Robin,
      You can hop over to her website and register to win our Jan giveaway. Or place an order if you are so inclined. (If you do, be sure to enter the contest by leaving a comment because an order gives you 10 entries!)
      What was your opinion of the lavender scent? Yes, it was supposed to be scented. In the bottle, I liked the smell. In the soap, I didn’t. estatic I almost didn’t mail out the lavender samples, but then I decided that maybe it was just me. Now I am looking for some honest feedback. :)

    • Well, Dee Dee, like I said, there was no scent the ONE time I did use it.  That’s why I was asking.  I did like the color, though.

    • DeeDee,

       I have to place an order.  

      What I have noticed is my skin is not dry like it normally is this time of year. Usually I am having to put so much lotion on in the winter especially my legs. I am not having to do that as much. Yeah!!!

    • Robin, I think I sent you the cocoa butter (no fragrance added) I labeled the mailers, but didn’t make a list for myself. Stupid me!

Ya’ll NEED to enter - every time you post a link on Facebook, or a note here, or twitter, or how ever else you help advertise - you can leave a comment letting me know (on her contest blog) - you get an entry for each link back!

    • LOVE cocoa butter!!  But, since it said lavender, I was expecting the scent.  Thank you very much, Dee Dee!  I do hope I wasn’t coming across as ungrateful.  It’s hard to tell in cyberspace!estatic

    • No - just confusing me. LOL  I thought I sent you two different ones. We packaged up 20 mailers all in one day, and it was a joint effort. I hesitated to send the lavender - I didn’t like the fragrance. I have gotten ‘mixed’ reviews. So, I am not sure what happened.
