New items!

Take a look a my new items!!

New and Exciting Things for 2010.

So I've realized how easy it is to get carried away with tons of ideas when you deal with bath and body products. Some things work and other don't but I have found so much fun in just trying to make my ideas reality whether they work or not. So in 2010 I will be adding lots of new things to my Etsy store sections. I will have section for wedding favors, baby showers, and everyday party items. I have learned that the possibilities are unlimited when it comes to bath and boy products. I will still have my lotions, shower gels and the like but I will be kicking up my site with a little flair. I hope you come along and enjoy the ride.

Where have I been?!

You know that is a great title. Even I don't know. I have been taking care of my son who developed pneumonia and a double ear infection. Yeah I know, kill me know. Other than the fact that he has been heavily medicated and stuck in doors for a week and a half now, he is doing a lot better. Did I mention he was one? Yeah. So one of the medicines makes him extremely, and I do mean extremely, hyper. So much so that I think he could fuel the space shuttle to the moon and back. On top of all of this loveliness, my husband has the flu, my NEW USED car had a radiator and thermostat explode ($1,500.00 to fix), haven't made 3 payments yet, and now we need to trade it in. So that is where I have been?! Whew. So what about everyone else? Need to vent? I did!

sitting and staring

everyone is so busy these days. being a stay at home mom, i . . . well, stay home. most days it's nice. just the baby and i. sitting at home. staring at each other. then she starts screaming and all i can do is sit there and stare at her. staying at home is wearing me out!! i need to do something! get out and enjoy the cooler weather.
but the baby is sick.
and so we sit.
and stare.
and scream.
we go to the grocery store about twice a week and she is so good on those trips. but i am so tired lately.. i'd rather sit and stare. i'm not supposed to feel this run down already am i? -sigh-
she's walking now! so cute. melissa says she walks like an ol' granny. and she does. :o) but she is more content in her own little world now. it's amazing. so i've started to work on a few things around the house. not much.. i'd rather sit and stare.
just a few lines to say we haven't forgotten about you.

Polls are Great!!

So I recently started putting polls on my blogs to see what type of things people are interested in. I really enjoyed doing them. People tend to respond well when they are able to give their opinion on different topics. What type of polls do you like to take? I will choose a winner out of the first 5 people that leave a comment. The winner will get to choose one of my new fall lotions scents Pumpkin Crunch Cake, Apple Pie, Cotton Candy or Ginger Verbena. So in you comment tell me which one you would like and when I choose the winner I will already know.

Thank you Queen Pea

So I asked Queen Pea to come and let you all know that I have been extremely busy. I'm still here! I started BDCBathandBody when I was a stay at home mom that was trying to figure out a way to get income. My poor husband has worked ever so hard that I have since gone back to work. I'm now working full time which leaves me just enough energy to create only a few things at a time. I haven't forgotten about all my loyal followers and appreciate you so much. I wanted to extend and invite to all of you to suggest different product ideas. I have my secret shopper contest when you comment on my blogs and now I've decided to send free samples to some of you who always contact me with great ideas. So start submitting because you now have 2 chances to win a free sample of an item of your choice.

Thursday, October 15, 2009

um, hello? anyone there?

i guess you have realized by now that BDC has been a little busy. she asked me to come in and check on you guys. just to say hello and see how you are all doing. we are doing great. just so busy and tired! having little ones running around will do that to you.
so i don't know about you guys, but here in the south it is too hot for fall. i am ready for a little sweater weather. this is my second fall here, and i have to tell you, i am starting to miss home a little. just a little. the crisp cool mornings. i think sometimes that i'd like to sit on the porch and drink my coffee, catch up on some reading or conversation with a good friend. but i can't sit out there more than 5 minutes before i'm panting for air! it's already about 80* by 8 am with a humidity no lower than 75. it's too muggy and suffocating. or am i just out of shape? no, it's just hot.
so my baby is 10 months old now. she is sitting on the floor at the glass door looking out at the cat trying to get him. she is so excited i'm afraid she might break the door. so cute.
so while she does that, i may finish laundry and figure out what to do for dinner. the big girls will be home in about two hours. then the real work begins. until next time, click here and have some fun. i've got to go clean.

Fall Preview

So I've just put together a list of things for my Fall 09 products. There are so many things that I want to bring to you that its hard to stay focused. So I will be introducing gift baskets with my new fall scents that will include a lotion, bath gel, and your choice of a sugar scrub or salt scrub. I am so excited and cannot wait to put the first one together so that everyone can see it. If you have any scent that you would like I will be doing customized gift baskets as well. These will cost a little more because I will have to order the customized scent but I want to give my followers what they want so I'm willing to do it. Please feel free to leave any comment on the blog or if you have any question email me. I'm all ears.

New Picture!!

So I've been going back over the products that I have already listed and have started to refine a lot of them. The first one I tinkered with was the 3 Pack Lotion Sampler. It now has a new picture of what the 3 Samplers actually look like. You can even seen the honey swirls and cappuccino color of the lotions. I'm so excited because to me I "eat" with my eyes so I like the product to reflect its name. Here is a link to the new picture. Enjoy!

Wednesday, September 23, 2009

Still Here!!!

So I haven't posted anything in quite a while. I have been so busy here lately. Doing what you may ask? Being a mother! I never in my wildest dreams believed it would be such a challenge creating my line of bath and body products and raising my little one. When I'm not at work, I at work with him. I have so much respect for those of you with more than one child. I don't know how you do it. Yes as you probably can tell this is my first one. Now don't get me wrong I knew it was going to be hard, but no one could have ever convinced me it would be this hard. Thank you all for being so patient as I try to squeeze out what creative ideas I have left in this mushy brain of mine.

sunday adventures

alright you guys, well, i've missed you. so here i am! it's me, 'queen pea'. i've been working on this blog for a week now. wow! it's already saturday. it's gone by so fast! i just wanted to share what our last sunday was like. we spent the afternoon with good friends. my girls and i went to visit with bdc and her family. had a blast. the babies followed each other around everywhere. they synchronized naps, that was nice. my two older daughters played guitar hero. they loved it. then bdc got really adventurous. she decided to let my older daughters create their own bath salts. they had so much fun, all three of them. they came up with two beautiful creations. 'allisa's misty meadows' and 'emily's pixie dust'. and of course this whole creating experience led to another great idea. i'll let bdc tell you about that one. of course i wished i had brought my camera. i'll make sure to have it with me next time.
so now it is good night. may you all have a good saturday evening and a great sunday. rest up, get ready for another crazy week.

Quality Time

hello to all. it has been a hectic 2 weeks. but i have to tell you my children are loving school and that is always a good thing. so it's just been my baby and me at home. i thought i would be able to get some things done around here. things i have been putting off. but it seems i've been spending most of my time on the floor. which is real hard for me. i have such a need for organization and a need to get things done. but as i sit on the floor with her looking at all the things i think need to be done, it hits me. those things will be there 10 years from now, still needing to be done. and i look at my precious one with the biggest grin on her face as she crawls all over me, knowing i am getting the most important thing done. something i need to remind myself of now and again. for them, it's the times you didn't clean the dishes before story time, or the when the laundry was folded after the movie and not during. so may all the children in the world feel that they are what matters most. because if not for them, then what?
may you all have a great weekend. live, laugh, and most of all love

Busy Week

I know its only Wednesday but I have had a busy week. I'm still trying to get the hang of working full-time and taking care of my little one. He hates day care and I hate it too but it is a necessary evil. I've really been concentrating on introducing my line of bath fizzies. I have everything prepared but I have yet to begin. I can tell you that once I launch them you won't be able to keep your hands off them. We're doing some pretty amazing things with ours that are not normally done. Can't wait to show you all.

Daily Grind

So I'm in Birmingham doing training from work and I've yet to get used to the hour commute back and forth from work. What makes it even worse is that school starts back here tomorrow. So that hour will become 2 hours. Incredible isn't it. However, the one thing I am looking forward to is going to the best little coffee shop in Birmingham. It's called Urban Standard. If you are in Birmingham, AL and have time to go downtown you will not be disappointed. They have the best grits known to man and better chicken salad than your mama can make. Check them out at or follow their twitter, Their phone number is not listed but you can get it from the site and they will definitely take care of you. Don't forget to get your punch card for your coffee purchases.

Here's their address:

Crazy Week!

So this has been a crazy week for me and my guest blogger. She's been trying to get ready for the new school year and I started back to work and had to put my son in day care for the first time. So I have been away from all of you and am so thankful to Fawn for keeping the blog going. I just sold my first of the 3 Pack Body Lotion Samplers. So excited!! I love this product because it lets you try all 3 for the price of one. Also the Out of the Box Sampler went on sale August 4th. I'm so excited and hope that everyone who receives one of my products loves it. It was a joy to do and I can't wait to do it again. Go on over to and get one before they run out.

oh, it's friday! it's storming here now. lightning, thunder, rain. a nice hot summer storm. i have an exciting weekend ahead and hope you do as well.
so i don't know who is hot, but it is hot down here in the gulf! i can hardly breathe when i step outside. by now, we are getting a little tired of summer. and our minds start thinking about fall. cooler weather, thicker layers. the fall is a time for me to start baking. i love the way it makes my house smell. you may be wondering why on earth am i talking about fall and baking. well, i'll tell you. my friend here at BDC has informed me that there will be some new and exciting things happening at her 'shop' ( fall 'flavors'!! and so i have decided to share my thoughts with you. that is why you are here, right? that's what i tell myself anyway. so the flavors she has decided to add to her line for the fall are going to be used for sachets, lotions, shower gels, scrubs and bath fizzies. as i look over this list of 'flavors' my mouth actually begins to water. i envision county fairs, family cook outs, kids in the kitchen with flour all over their faces. when you look over these, what do you think of? sitting with a cup of coffee or hot tea, a little treat, and your favorite book? tell me what about the fall do you enjoy? i'll be listening.
Pumpkin Spice
Apple Pie
Pecan Pie
Candy Apple
Sweet Potato Pie
Chai Tea
i love my scented lotions, and hope you look forward to these. visit to see what's going on.
enjoy your weekend friends, and stay safe.


this is harder than i thought it would be. i love writing but now only three days into it and i'm all out of ideas. what a boring snoring little girl i am.
so my baby sleeps in her crib next to my bed. she wakes up about 3am to eat and i normally feed her in my bed and we both end up falling back to sleep. so at 6:30 she is in my bed and i'm trying to sneak out of bed without waking her. well as soon as i move my arm from underneath her, she starts to stretch. and i'm thinking 'don't wake up don't wake up don't wake up'. so she's stretching, and tooting, and talking all with her eyes closed. i rub her face and she is still and i think she is asleep and i can get away now! wrong. i move and she starts stretching all over again. anyway, to make a long story just a little shorter, for about 15 minutes i'm trying my hardest to keep her asleep so i can get up, and it's not working. so i just get up and walk away. and do you know what she did? she just laid there talking to herself and playing with the pillow and sheet. she was fine! i'm all worried about having my morning to myself for a few minutes, that if i would just get up she would be fine. and now, 2 hours later, she is sleeping. :) i've cleaned a little, done a little laundry, returned some emails and now i'm drinking my coffee and thinking of you all.
i have enjoyed this week so far. and thank you for your comments. it's nice to know that someone out there is 'listening'. just be thankful i didn't get started on one of my rants. cause once i get started, it's hard for me to stop. and it's been one heck of a week.
well, my baby is waking and so i better get going. i may drop a few lines later today, or you may have to wait till tomorrow. hope you all have a beautiful day. a day full of love and happiness.

I know I have a guest blogger this week but I wanted to make sure everyone new about this. The August Out of the Box Samplers will go on sale August 4th. You do not want to miss out on this.

The link is found on the left side under "Who is in the Box."

I'm also having and end of July sale in my shop to clear room for my Fall items.

I Love the Beach

summer is almost over! i cannot believe it! what happened? school starts in a little over a week and we haven't done half of what we planned. sometimes that's the way it goes. i'm trying to get to the beach as much as possible till then. i had a friend come visit from out of state last weekend and we spent everyday at the beach. it's been 10 years since she last saw the ocean. we could not have asked for a more perfect weekend. she is a freelance photographer and she brought her camera (yea). she got some awesome shots of the ocean and my baby. she got a little burnt by day 3, but she says it was all worth it. the sun is an awesome source of energy. it just feels good. too bad it sucks all the moisture from our skin and gives us wrinkles. as children we never really worry about the effects of the sun. but as we get a little older . . . the past couple years i've decided it's time to protect my face. perhaps i should have decided that a long time ago. so now i am 31 and i see what the sun has done to my skin. ...sigh... and with my children, i know i need to teach them good sun protection techniques. bdc has given me some of her 'honey almond biscotti' lotion to try. i have been using it and i love it!! it is very silky smooth. and the scent is so light and delicate and sweet. it makes me feel good after a long day at the beach. i think if i had a man he would even like it. (wink wink) so this next week i will be getting the girls to the beach as much as possible, and lathering them up with sunscreen while i sit and 'worship' the sun. my face covered of course. and when the day is through and the girls are in bed, and i've finally gotten my shower, i will slather on some lotion and wish i had used sunscreen.

girls, girls, girls

oh, what would we do without coffee? it's 8:30 am and my 8 month old just went down for her am nap. i sit here looking at the chaos which is my apartment, and a million things run through my head. things i should be doing, laundry, dishes, vacuuming, mopping, . . . but all i can manage at this moment is to sit here sipping my coffee. if i had a porch, i would even sit outside to drink it. not sure how long that would last though. it's probably already near 90*. not the best coffee drinking weather.
so i painted my baby's toes last night. and it got me thinking how great it is to be a girl. of course she hated being held still, but i know as she gets older, she will love it. i have three girls, and the older ones are 9 and 5. at times they beg me to paint their toes and after about two days i give in just so they'll quit asking. and i'm always glad i do. sitting there with them painting their toes, for those few moments, there's nothing else in the world but them and me. their attention is away from the tv, they aren't thinking about school or the latest argument between them, it's just two girls and their mom, being girls.
well, i bid thee farewell for now. my coffee is finished and so it is time i do something with my day. maybe i'll check my farm in 'yofarm'. or maybe i'd better wash dishes. ;)
now tell me, other than dishes and our monthly visitor, what do you think is great about being a girl? painted toes? rosey cheeks? scented lotions?

So with out further adieu.... introducing Fawn your guest blogger of the week!!!!

Not too much going on today. Just thinking of the next few fragrances I'm going to put in my new lotion line and trying to create more items for the shop. I feel like my job is never done. Learned a lot of new things over the weekend and just can't wait to try them. Anybody else hate Monday's?

Friendly Test Drive

So as you know I completed my first lotion. Today I was with a friend of mine and I had given her a bottle of it to see if she like the way it smelled. Well she liked it. So we were out and about and saw someone we mutually know. She puts on the lotion and gives some to them and says (I love it) " Do you like lotion? Well I have some and its brand new. Put some on and let everybody else smell it too." What would we do without our friends!

New lotion!!!

So I just tackled making my first lotion and it was sooooooooooo easy. I have to say its so cool getting to create your own personal lotion. As soon as I get it package I will get it posted to Etsy and also put its link here. I think you all will love it.

New Product

So I've been working away to add new items to my shop and currently I'm putting the final touches on a new lotion I've created. I probably will offer it as a traditional lotion to begin with then I will post the whipped version later. It's been really exciting working with lotion and finding out the things that you can and cannot add to them. Can't wait to post the link.

Feed the Fish

So I've added this really cool gadget to my blog. At the upper left hand corner there are some fish swimming around, well if you click your mouse in the water it will feed the fish. It has nothing to do with my shop just thought it was really neat. SO FEED THE FISH!!!

First Sale!!!!!!

So as you know I just listed my newest addition to my shop and guess what??!! Someone bought it already. Yeahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh! I can't believe it.


Each month we will be featuring one of our scrubs in a 4 oz. sampler size. We realize that many people would like to sample a small bit of something before they commit to a large purchase. We will be offering free shipping when 2 or more a ordered in the U.S. This offer will not last long. Exp. August 3, 2009.

R & R

So a good friend of mine and her beautiful little girl came over yesterday afternoon. We sat around doing pretty much nothing. It was really nice. It got me thinking about making bath products for kids. My little one has trouble with eczema that he gets from his dad so I have to be really careful with what I clean his clothes in, what perfume I wear or even the type of air freshener I use. It would be nice to create a very mild soap or bath was that was made for babies. Maybe I get started on that one soon.

Catching Up

So it's been a few days since I've posted. Mainly because I'm trying to come up with new items for my shop, partly because I'm working on samples for the OOTB Etsy Team, but really because I was just tired. I've added a new bath sachet, Spearmint. Weird thing is I always called it SpearAmint and not spearmint. It smells great. I wish I would have had it when I was pregnant. It's great for morning sickness. Here's a link:

Good Morning!

So it's early in the a.m., early to me because I've been up all night fighting with my little one to sleep, and I'm still trying to get everything together for the OOTB Etsy Team. Things are going really well. So now it's time to launch a new product. I really don't know what quite yet. I wish I could just rattle off a whole bunch of ideas, but I want everything to be original and done with care. Suggestions are always welcome.

The packaging for our Bath Sachets is now up on our website. We hope you like it. Here's a link to one of them:

Ad Button

So we've installed a new ad button on our blog that will allow you to go straight to our website and purchase products. This was quite a milestone because I'm still so computer illiterate. We're still working on getting our packing pictures up on the sight. Just haven't quite figured out which design element to go with.

It's already July and I'm behind on my blogs. Go figure. So I've really have been working to get everything together for the Out Of The Box Sampler we'll be doing in August. Just trying to make sure I send the best of my products. Tweaking a few things here and there. I've come up with some new products but I think we'll wait to launch them in August. Hope we get quite a few sales from this project. If you have a chance make sure you check out the Out Of The Box Sampler site at It is sponsored by the OOTBS Etsy Team.

Coming Soon!

We will be participating in Out Of The Box Sampler, sponosored by the OOTBS Etsy Team, in August. We will be featuring some of our current products but also some new products we've been developing. This will be an awsome opportunity to try smaller amounts of our products to see which you like the best. But the only way to get them is to visit in August. We hope to see you there!

Great Response

The response to our new products has been fantastic. Although we haven't had anyone buy them yet, we have had a lot of people view them. Today I will be working on the packaging. It's always nice to see the complete product anyway.

Thurday Update!

So yesterday we introduced 3 new items into our shop on Etsy. For those of you that don't know, Etsy is an online website that allows thousands of creative people to create a shop and post their handmade crafts. Whether it be bath items like we do or jewelry or what have you. As long as its handmade you can sell it. I don't know what we would have done without this website. It allows you to have your own store without all the overhead. Here is a link to our new items:

Brand new items

So we've added a few new items to our shop. We now have Peppermint Tea, Coffee and Fruit Medley Bath Sachets available. Each sachet comes in a reusable drawstring unbleached muslin bag. They weight about 3 oz. each and come in orders of 2. We are running a special right now until July 31, 2009. Any order $5 and under will receive a free bath sachet of the same item they ordered and any order $10 or more will receive a free bath sachet of their choice and a free sample of a salt scrub that we will choose. This is a great opportunity to try out our other products.

Come check us out.

So I decided to take Sunday off. Wasn't feeling really creative. Sometimes we all just need a day or two to sit back and regroup.

Creative Process

One of the most challenging this about making bath products is trying to appeal to everyone. Whether male, female, vegan, vegetarian, or the just the typical person. There are so many things that you just can't duplicate for vegans or vegetarians that everyone benefits from. I guess that's why we like the challenge. Everyone should be able to get the products they want in the purest form.

Hello All!!

So we've finally done it. We had no idea what to do or how to do it. What am I talking about? Creating a Blog. Now I consider myself somewhat computer literate, but when it comes to blogs, and twitter, facebook and all that jazz. I'm lost. They use to sound like undiscovered insects in Scotland or a new type of fly called a twitter. But finally I can say, here we are. Smack dab in the bloggers world. Congrats to everyone else that has stepped into the 21st century with me.
