They're not cold process soaps though we made them hot process so we could have them ready fast for all of you soap lovers. Well, and we wanted it ready for the holidays. The soap that we will be listing in a day or two is Spiced Cranberry. It smells so good I almost took a bite out of it. But then I remembered it is soap and that wouldn't taste very good. Here are the pictures!!!
We also have another cake that we have made but it wont be ready for a week or so yet. It is going to be a good one! So keep your eyes open for that one as well.
Thank you for reading and have a creative day!

We were thinking that because we have our shop name as
CrazyTimesCandles that it might be throwing people off.
So let us know what you think.
Should we keep our etsy shop as crazytimescandles and list both our candles and soaps in that shop.
Or should we open a new shop for our Soaps???
We sell so much soap in our shop but I think some people are not seeing our soaps because of it saying crazytimescandles.
The bad part about it is that we would be starting all over with a shop for soaps and some people might be thrown off with us not having any feedback.
The other bad part is that people wouldn't see our candles as much.
The pluses about it is that people would be able to see all of our soaps for the people that are looking for soaps and not have to see the candles if they didn't want to.
We just don't know what to do with this. Please help!!!

My cousin Tara Came to see us.
See she is 32 weeks pregnant and she is not supposed to travel tell after she has the baby the doctor gave her and OK to do it this last time before the baby comes.
Tara used to come up and visit every other weekend and we haven't seen her in over a month. She left here about 5 minutes ago to go by her sister to get her baby swing before her sister goes to work. Then she is coming back to us for the night.
I can't wait for her to get back here :)
Other then that Dave is down starts working on making some more Ocean Breeze Salt Spa Bars because that is our BEST selling soap :)
I told him you might as well just make 2 batches right way so that is what he is doing.
The kids are over excited as well with it being Saturday and getting to spend some time with me and there Aunt Tara.
We are all going to play monopoly when she gets back.

The kids loved them.

So last night I finally finished Cameron's hat and Scarf.
Woo Hoo I am so excited to show off my handsome little man.
So take some time and look at this cute little guy for me.
This might be the cutest and sweetest little boy you will ever see in your life!
Ok maybe not the cutest to everyone but he is my son so you know how that goes.
He is the little boy that helps anyone and everyone that might need help. I am not just saying he is a great kid because he is mine, He has the biggest heart I have ever seen in anyone.
He gives and gives and never asks for anything in return.
To find that in any kids these days is hard.
So anyway that is enough about my handsome little man.
Let me know what you think of his hat and Scarf :)
Thank you for reading this.
Oh and this last picture is really for his Auntie Tara...

Then we had to get some Kitty Litter for our little Princess so we went to Target. It was my first time out of the house sense I had surgery so I wanted to look around a little bit. And as all parents do we went right for the Toys because we didn't have the kids with us. We went right were we always go to the Clearance spot on a back wall.
And What do I see!!!!
A 3/4 Size Washburn Hannah Montana Acoustic Guitar
The one thing I know my daughter wants more then anything in the world. So we had to get it. :) They normally are $90.00 and it was on clearance for 22.75 What a great deal. That is just the prefect gift for Christmas.
We also got our Son Cameron some Star Wars Ships but they were normal price. But that is ok because us getting Alyse's present on clearance made it so we can get more for both of them.
It always makes us so happy when we can get our kids stuff they want or like. Our kids are easy to please but it is always nice to get them stuff they really really wanted.
So that was our exciting day today.

Oh August 23 I was looking around shops and found a Saturday Night Special in TheBumbleBeeStudio's shop. All we had to do is pay shipping. What a great deal.
This is what it looked like when we got it. So cute right.
We were very excited to have the kids plant the seeds.
They had lots of fun doing it as well. I do have to say that The Windowsill Wheat Grass grows like crazy.
has a great shop and I hope to do some
of our Christmas shopping there.
Our daughter Alyse just loves to munch on
the grass with our little kitty Princess.

It wasn't anything big I just got my tubes tied today. So we have been going over the hole are we sure we don't want any more kids for the last month or so. And we thought it was for the best. 2 kids is enough we have a boy and a girl so you really can't have anything else.
So everything went fine today and I am in a little bit of pain. So if I talked in circles you all know why now. :)
We hope to put up some pictures of a show we did a few weeks back tomorrow I think.

The turnout was great, especially for a first year show. There was a good chance of rain that luckily stayed away and left us with a nice partly cloudy day to enjoy.
During the day we met some great people including Betsy from http://ladybugbeads.etsy.com and Xanthe from http://oddstuffbyXanthe.etsy.com.
Much thanks to Kim Geiser, owner of Persimmons and event coordinator, for hosting such a great event.
Pictured above you'll see just one of the great moments of the day. Darth Vader getting his picture taken while holding a bottle of our Moisturizing Body Spray! Our kids, especially our son, thought that was the coolest thing in the world when they saw the picture this morning.
Unfortunately, we didn't get any pictures of our own this time.
We do have another show this Saturday that we will make sure to bring our camera to. If you're in the Appleton area Saturday and would like to join us we'll be at:

Etsy Venus Zine Co-op Ad - Fall 2008 Issue
Today we also took a trip over to Barnes and Noble and found some copies of the fall 2008 issue of Venus Zine. Of course we couldn't get just one, so we got three copies.
We were very excited to see our Lemon Drop Soap on the right side of the ad only a few pages into the magazine right after the table of contents.
Our Coffee Sugar Scrub is supposed to be featured in a new magazine in Denver, CO as well in their premier issue in November. We'll be looking forward to seeing how that ends up. http://onemagdenver.com

Last night after her shower I straightened her hair. It makes her look like 2 years older. My husband well I don't think he liked it at all. But I was very happy with it this morning when I went to brush her hair and not even one snarl. That was so great for both her and I. So anyway here is a picture of what she looks like with it straight.

But the reason I wasn't getting my monthly friend is because I was not ovulating... My hormones were very low so he gave me some pills to help it come. I don't know if any of you know but it is not good for you to go anymore then 3 months with out having your cycle. It can cause you get get uterine cancer and that my friends is not fun. So I am so sorry if I scared any of you with my bad health post but every thing as of now is going to be ok. And as for all the pain I was in it was my body telling me to get in to the doctor and get checked out I think. That and I have a very small cyst on my ovary.
And thank you all for the nice comments and for all of your support. Oh and I also thank my lucky stars that I have such a GREAT and wonderful husband. I hope everyone of you lovely people can find a soul mate like I did.
thank you for reading this and have a creative day.

We got him a black pouch with a white skull on it from tenthstreet over on Etsy.
The quality of the pouch was great and it is quite larger than the picture would make you think. The dimensions of the pouches are in the description for each listing so you'll know the size.
If you have a moment please check out her shop. We think you'll love it.
