I am Back!

I hope! I have had a little (little???) bout of stomach flu. I have been out of commission for a while. In addition, my ex-husband passed away and I had to go home for a few days. Now that all of that is behind me, I have some serious catching up to do. Here are new pictures of Beany at school.He is getting so big! He is very excited about his baby sister, and so is his Mommo!.....95 days and counting.....

I have this great idea for a cottage tote bag, and I am working on the design now. I love cottage design, color and texture and I think that this bag will be perfect for me. I will post pics as it progresses.

Soap sales are good. I have not added any new fragrances yet. I have had so many other "irons in the fire", that I have not had time to work on any new recipes. I have been dabbling a little in recipes for reed diffusers. I think you get the most bang for your buck with reed diffusers, and you never have to worry about whether you left them burning. Once I get the recipes completed, I will have those available too.

With the holidays coming, and they are coming quickly, I have been working on some ideas for my swap partner. I think I have finally decided what I am going to make for her.

I have so many ideas rolling around in my head that I get dizzy sometimes. I just wish that they were all GOOD ideas. The majority of them are not. Or, if they are, I can't figure out how to make them work. There just never seems to be enough hours in the day to do all the things that I want to do. I am sure that most of you feel that way also. I guess we just have to keep at it and accomplish what we can, when we can.

Oh, and I actually won something! I still can't believe it! I entered a little contest on Joanna Campbell Slan's blog, and I won! She sent me a great paperback, a bookmark about her new book, and some heavenly cosmetics. Thanks, Joanna.

I am thinking about doing a contest. I will have to ask IndigoBlue or Nannybird about doing it though because I have never done one. I think they are so fun!

Ok, I am off to catch up on the latest news on my favorite blogs.........take care all!

love ya'll~
