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. It is the perfect way to try 16-18 different items for one price. Last month the boxes were $22.00 and had 15-16 items in each one. Visit their website to see who will be in the August box. 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?

Guest Blogger

So I have had one crazy week. The air went out in our home for two days so we had to stay with family. I haven't had one ounce of creativeness. I really need to get to work making new products. So because of that I will be having a guest blogger for this week. This person is my one of my main product testers and the driving force around a lot of my creative products. So with out further adieu.... introducing Fawn your guest blogger of the week!!!!

Honey Almond Biscotti Body Lotion

Monday Monday

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 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.

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.

Tuesday, July 7, 2009


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.

Friday, July 3, 2009


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.
