Yesterday I signed up for a personalized license plate, but wait! There's more! It is in red, and is the license plate for the university that one of my sons goes to. It is so unusual and new, that I thought it would get twice the attention that a regular personalized plate would get. Actually, it kind of looks fake, don't you think? ;)
Around here if you have a college plate, 99% of the time it is the University of Iowa or Iowa State. They've only recently come out with the smaller college plates. I was limited to 7 characters, and of course Soapourri is 9. So I got rid of an r and the u to make - Soapuri! I also signed up for Soapuri.com and had the website transfer to Soapourri.com.
Years ago I had that license plate - and I'll never forget the person in the church parking lot that pointed at it and said - Soap Your Eye, right? She was so pleased with herself and thought she nailed it. Still makes me laugh!
I hope you're enjoying your spring as much as I am.
Spring is my favorite season - watching the buds and flowers appear on the
trees, seeing the hostas shoot out of the ground and then spread, seeing new
tulips appear for the first time - so thrilling, especially after the winter
that we had!

shipping on all U.S. retail orders

I just really dated myself with that title - anybody know what that means? We had our last Winter Market today and it was a big success. But so darn busy that I never got to walk around and see what there was to offer! Although I had the good fortune to be next to a couple with gorgeous organic tomatoes, that was a real treat for the eyes.
Saw a lot of people with really dry looking hands, some with cracks. I did sell a lot of butter bars and whipped shea souffle, but the truth is, I wish I didn't have to. If everyone just used a good handmade soap most of them wouldn't have problems. I tell them that my hands never need lotion because the soap doesn't dry them out. I just keep plugging away, one customer at a time!
