I make every effort to keep my studio clean and sterile. I wash the counters before each batch, between batches, during batches. I make sure my hands are clean and do my best to prevent anything that shouldn’t get into the products stays out of the products.
BUT then lotion making gone bad happens.
I was removing the blender to start pouring the lotion, and then just like that, lotion all over me, all over the floor, my shoes (yes I am barefoot in the photo because it felt really strange and gooey inside my shoes), the walls, the walls around the corner (not sure how that happened but it did).
I stood there for a minute wanting to cry. I had a big deadline and was already behind on orders. I wanted to cry because there was a lot of money sloshing around on the floor. I wanted to cry because it was already the evening and I was tired.
But then I stood there slipping around on the floor trying to remain standing up, and I just started to laugh.
