100 Soap Samples! What Was I Thinking???


Sometimes I'm too darned nice for my own good. Back in December I was contacted about providing samples for a school charity. I don't like to say no to charity, but I don't like being pressured into doing something I really don't want to do either. Thinking I could get out of it, I replied that all I'd be willing to donate was 100 samples, and to my surprise, they replied that that was okay. DAMN, DAMN, DAMN!!! Here we are almost 3 months later, and I'm just getting off my butt and putting these together. I wanted to do something different. If I'm going to be dishing out 100 ounces of soap, they'd better stand out, right?

I found these cute muslin drawstring bags that I absolutely adore. They are such a cool way to protect the soap and you can smell it right through the bag! I don't have a custom stamp with my shop name and URL on it (on the shopping list), so I took this stamp that I have that says "Handcrafted" and I stamped one side of the bag. On the other side, I stamped "Enjoy." I've inserted a little card with my product name and URL on it along with a coupon towards a future purchase. I think that I'm going to have to box these up into two large flat rate shipping boxes. I'm off to finish inserting my cards....
Oh yeah: This is the last week to enter my giveaway. Don't you want a chance to win free stuff?????

You're so sweet. True Charity, does hurt-until you've finished, then the rewards are many. You will feel soooo good about yourself-and you deserve to-that's awesome!
BTW-I mailed your creme today, sorry for the delay, the PO was closed early on Sat-something about cut hours because of the economy-that's really BAD! It's on its way to you priority. TY
