This week a bride-to-be ordered
220 butterfly soaps for wedding favors.
That’s so exciting!
The order came in just six days before they need to be shipped.
That usually wouldn’t be a problem.
But the thing is, I have only one little butterfly mold.
It takes 10-12 minutes for each butterfly to harden.
Then it can be unmolded.
Blue Butterfly Lineup
Doing the math kicked me into high gear.
Figuring conservatively at 4 butterflies per hour,
I need a total of 55 hours of active production.
Allowing 11 hours per day as active butterfly making hours
means I can finish them in five days.
I have a day to spare!
Wrapped and Labeled
Today is day three.
Half of the butterflies are made, wrapped, and labeled.
Dozens more are ready to be wrapped.
Production is right on schedule.
The bride-to-be is going to put two butterflies per organza bag.
I’m very honored to be a small part of her special day.
I better get to it.
My timer that’s set to go off every 12 minutes is calling.
Thanks for reading!
