Catching Up & Blogging

So, the busy summer season has come to an end and I have begun making making making soap again!! And experimenting!!  Oh how I love making soap and experimenting!
Soaps I did for a wedding recently…

Some laundry soap I made…

A wonderful beach afternoon getaway in the Cabo de Gata natural park nearby…
 
And a reminder that my Website is up live and running! 
www.naturalmentemediterraneo.com
Wow… I can really get lost in all this computer time… I have to limit myself in order to get other stuff done!
About blogging… for personal blog browsing other people’s blogs, I love big colourful photos with new things to learn.  I don’t have time to read through wordy blog posts so I skim…  and I get annoyed when I realize that a blog is a business plug.  So with this blog, I try to do those things I like – big colourful photos… keep the words down… and not try to push my business… just offer and connect with other people with similar interests.  That said… I am going to focus my other blog, my Naturalmente Mediterráneo blog, on keeping followers up to date about my business and new products and what is going on at Naturalmente Mediterráneo and this blog, my Jenora Soaps blog, for more personal stuff and my experiments.  Hope that’s okay with you all.  Don’t want to change things too much.
So coming soon – a post about my recent experiments / mistakes / surprises!
Happy blogging!!

Your blog is very easy to read and follow. I hate blogs that I really am interested in that are grey font on black background and the font is like 6 point and it is a long and lenghty post. I have to scroll over to highlight the text to be able to read it. One of these days if it ever cools down I hope to get off my duff and make some soap. I took a class, bought molds and enough ingredients to make 32 pounds of soap.

I love reading your blog and seeing all your incredible soapy creations. :)

BTW, I super love the packaging for your laundry soap.

Tombstone Livestock, Thank you so much for your comment. I was also annoyed by small font, small photos, un-userability with blogs, so I am really glad to hear that mine is easy to read/ follow. Can't wait to hear about your soaping adventures once you get back to it! xo Jen

Amy, Thanks so much!!! xo Jen

Lisa, So glad you like my photos!! Thanks for your comment! xo Jen

Donna, Thank you!!!! You soaps are looking mighty fine lately. Hug! xo Jen

Anne Marie, Thank you! I so wish there were a European Bramblberry... I would be a good customer of yours. Laundry soap packaging - I design the packaging - my husband perfects it. I usually whip something up and bring it to him. He then tells me all those simple details to change and his contributions are usually good. Thankyou!! xo Jen
