Contest / givaway update!

We are getting closer and I am so excited!!!!  I am one of those people that just love giving things away.  Good thing I have my husband or I would be giving ever thing away all the time.  

He has to put me in my place a lot about that kind of thing.  So when he came up with the idea of a giveaway I was so excited! 

So on to the give away.  We were 320 sales away on the 17th and now we are only 280 away!  I am going to try to keep you all updated on this as much as possible.  But I don't want to do it to often because it is going to take the fun out of all of it!  

I can't wait for the kids to do the drawing.  Oh on that note we will be adding one last runner up prize.  So that the kids can both pick 3.  The last runner up will get a free lip balm of there chose.

Thank you and have a creative day!

~ Feelings ~

Thanks Giving is coming soon.  This is my favorite Holiday of them all.   I always get so many feeling at this time of year.  When I was a kid I didn't have much of a family.  Now that I am a mom of 2 wonderful kids and a wife to the greatest man in the world I have all the love and happiness anyone could ask for.

This is going to be funny sounding.  I really look forward to Thanks Giving because I love to spend time with my In Laws.  They have really taught me what a real Family is.  

I must have the greatest In Laws in the world.  Before I meet my husband and his family I thought that Family was nothing but finger pointing and yelling. 

Just to be able to sit and have a family get together with out any yelling and or fighting is great.  But the best part about it all is they showed me what love and caring feels like.  I have to say,  I am a better person now that I have all of them in my life.  

Ok I am done for now.  I could go on and on all night long about the loved ones in my life but, my husband is telling me I am writing a book.

We made a cake!

Lately we have been asked a lot what we have been working on. Well we have been working on making some cakes and one of them is going to be listed in the next day or two.

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!

Carpet freshener recipe!

Here is a recipe we use in our home. A great way to freshen a room much cheaper than the carpet fresheners at the store.

This makes a nice batch of carpet freshener that will last quite awhile. 

You can cut the amounts down if you like until you find your favorite blend.

Ingredients:

3 cups baking soda 
1/2 cup cornstarch
10 - 15 drops of your choice of essential oil (Lavender, Eucalyptus, Etc.)
1/2 cup borax (20 mule team) optional

Directions:

  • Mix well and store in an airtight plastic or glass container. Set aside for a couple days before using. Sprinkle generously on carpet and let sit for about 15 minutes before vacuuming.

I love mail like this!

We just love getting Etsy packages in the mail! It's so exciting.

Especially when you're waiting for great items like these magnets from HomeStudio2 and some wonderful smelling soaps from DennisAnderson!



If you're looking for some great quality magnets, these are very well made and super strong!

I could not even get them close to each other to take the photo. They will easily do their job very well while looking great!



These amazing smelling soaps also came in the mail today! I can't wait to try them out.


Halloween was so much fun!

We had so much fun last night Trick or Treating with the kids...
We only took the kids around for an hour but they had a blast.
We had 4 hours to trick ot treat here last night. I think the kids had more fun handing out candy back at the house then anything. Here are the kids in there costumes.




Alyse was Hannah Montana. What a doll!!!







Cameron was Comander Cody. A Clone Trooper. What a
handsome little man!!!







The kids handed out Candy to the kids that came around after we came home.
And earlier in the day Dave got together some samples for all the mom s and dads that took there kids out trick or treating.
The moms and dads of the kids were so happy to get something as well. It was a great night.


After all that we had pizza for supper and watched a movie with our cousin. All and all I
would have to say this was one of the happiest Halloweens we have ever had. And
here are some other pictures of the kids in there costumes.
