Slowly but surely, we’re gearing up. The products are finalised, the website is almost done.
Today? I started a Lujos group on Facebook, created a Twitter account for Lujos. Joined a soapmaker’s forum. Made 2 kinds of face cream (mostly for daughter Peg, as she has run out). Made some Double Orange & Chamomile soap, which so far is proving to be a real hit with absolutely everyone. (it’s my current favourite)
After lunch? Kenton and I created the studio shots for the product images. This takes much longer than one might think, but really makes a difference on the website. Then we had to clean up all the props – lavender heads, olive oil, carrot oil, almonds, rose buds, and so on. The office was covered with Lujos stuff!
After that, clean up the soap-making detritus, then make butternut squash risotto for dinner. Think I’ll treat myself to a glass of wine now!
