As tomorrow is my first pre-Christmas market, I am busy packaging our Christmas soaps, as well as preparing the baskets for our Christmas raffle.
My husband and I
argued about discussed and discussed the Christmas soap packaging
and had to agree to disagree in the end. I liked the parcel with bow on top (I
know I know, so unlike me to go for anything plasticky… but for some reason I
liked it) and my husband preferred simplicity.
He is soooo into our logo that he always prefers the logo to be the
protagonist, not the bow, nor the soap type, nor the wrapping. So, we agreed to package some my way, and
some his way.
As I have written about before… he is detail oriented and I am big picture. How fortunate I feel that we are able to appreciate the balance our differences bring to the table. I see clutter, not dust. He’s doesn’t mind that the clothes sit in a pile on top of the dresser instead of making their way into the drawers… but he notices a hair that falls from my head if I forget to wear my hairnet in the studio.
So, here is both.
Sneak tweaking peek… This week I have been CONSUMED with the new packaging for our entire soap line… we have been thinking about changing things for a while, mainly to simplify things as packaging has become so time consuming and our time is so valuable. The solution hit me like a bolt of lightning earlier this week and I have been so excited about it that I have even woken up in the middle of the night, to jot down ideas… I used to get excited about going out on a Friday night… now I can’t sleep because of new packaging? Ah well, at least I am passionately excited about something. It’s currently coming together piece by piece and I will reveal more when it is finished!!
Happy and passionate soaping and holiday preparing!!! Xo Jen
