We made the most of our Memorial Day. While hiking to Clayton Beach, Chris and I told Jamisen all about Memorial Day (and if the link I gave you yesterday didn’t have you tearing up enough, this is an even better narrative about the emotional costs of war). Jamisen listened quietly and seemed to appreciate the gravity of the message. After all the talking, he was delighted to be let down to crawl around the beach. It was his first experience wit the sand and he went for it – crawling all over and generally showing a fiercely independent streak.
This video is the story of my life right now:
There is lots of hobbly walking in our home. Guiding Jamisen around is rather fun though; it’s pretty entertaining to see where he’s going to go next. Jamisen has also mastered the fine art of stair climbing. Thank goodness for the baby gate!
On a business note, our Soap Weekend Intensive is officially FULL! We are taking names for the waiting list. If you want to be on the waiting list, email us at SWI (at) Brambleberry (dot) com. We have a lot of fun stuff in the works for the blog this week – a new Aloha Molds promotion, a new SoapyLove kit release, a summer Bug Be Gone blend and project tutorial (that is, if I can get a couple more successful testing nights – the last few nights have been seriously lacking on blood sucking mosquito) and our Bramble Berry Newsletter (with exclusive projects and discounts not seen elsewhere) is coming out this week. Finally, we’ve switched up our Free Sample Project – it’s Violet Lotion (using a pre-made lotion base) with a free label template. You can see the project + the blends here.
