Cheese Break

25 Aug

Cheese break sounds good.  It conjures of images of sitting on the deck in the evening with a chunk of homemade mozzarella and a nice glass of homemade wine.  Well, I’m out of the wine I like, and it really means I’ve changed what I’m using my goat milk for.  I took a break from making cheese.

Because things this time of year aren’t busy enough, I agreed to join with a couple of other local crafters and my dad to take our stuff to a consignment shop in Des Moines.  That means I had to get soap boxed up.

Then the real work started.

I had to make nine batches of lotion.

I finally got it all ready to go, but I didn’t get to go to the store myself because I went back to work.  Hopefully, I’ll get down there once the products are out on the shelves (on September 1st).  In the meantime, I am switching to soap making.  I had a special order for a baby shower.

I am also restocking my soap room for Internet sales (I’m out of stock of several items since I sent it to the consignment shop) and direct sales from the soap room.  I counted fifteen batches I need to make and another two or three that I should make.

I’m also busy with making this stuff, so I’m back to just freezing gallon bags of milk to finish filling my freezer for any bottle kids next year.  But I must say, sitting on the deck snacking on fresh cheese does sound good.
