Weighted eye pillows

I have a new product available. The weighted eye pillows have an encased elastic band to hold the eye pillow on your head. I'm very excited about these pillows. They are great for day sleepers, headaches, and relaxation. One person even said she would love using this during her yoga. The pillow is filled with Lentils and dried lavender buds. I have some stocked at both the Tree of Life congo (semi-custom) and the Creatively Serene congo. Come get them while you can!

Mother's Day Auction.

I've put together a wonderful gift set that would pamper a special mama. Auction starts on Thursday morning and lasts until Saturday Evening. If your looking for something special for a mother in your life, this is a great way to show her that you appreciate all she does. See it here.

A little fun for Earth Day.

Well, for the Earth Day stocking at one of my congos, I decided to have a little fun. I made a triple colored air freshener. Blue on top for the sky, green in the middle for trees, and brown on the bottom for earth. I scented it in a forest scent which was what this reminded me of. You can see the item here

10 Things

Who knew it would be so hard to list 10 things I'm thankful for. I'm constantly finding myself thankful for things I have in my life, but it's hard to narrow them down. These are in no particular order of importance as I'm listing them when I think of them.

  1. I'm thankful I can be a Christian freely.
  2. I'm thankful for my wonderful husband that never ceases to amaze me with his love and thoughtfulness.
  3. I'm thankful for our smart, healthy, happy son who brings joy to my life every day.
  4. I'm thankful to be surrounded by family.
  5. I'm thankful for my best friend Mary. We've been the best of friends since we were eight. It's hard to find such close friends anymore.
  6. I'm thankful for my husband's parents who have shown me how to live for Christ.
  7. I'm thankful for the ability to get an education
  8. I'm thankful for pets who help bring laughter and comfort into our home.
  9. I'm thankful for clothes on my back, a roof over my head, and food in the cupboards
  10. I'm thankful for my health.
Thank you for reading the things I'm thankful for. Now, I challenge you to make your own list of 10 things you are thankful for so that when you have a hectic day, you can look back on your list and see how blessed you are. God Bless!

Musky Jasmine

I was so happy to find out today that I was sucessful in creating a musky jasmine perfume that was very similar to the Love's Musky Jasmine that is no longer made. I sent a message to a person telling her that I make custom perfume blends, and I'd love to try and make some for her.

My main concern was that I had never before smelled Musky Jasmine and had no idea how to get close to that scent. So, I made up two samples modified from my Jasmine Deight recipe and one of them was somewhat close. I tried one more time and she was very impressed that I was able to get so close. Third time really is a charm sometimes. It was nice to know that based on her descriptions of the scent, I was able to create what she wanted.

So here in the next week or two, I will have the Musky Jasmine blend available in my list of perfume blends. What a happy day!

Recycled Longies with Flare

I made some custom recycled longies for a trade and she wanted flares on the pants. I don't normally sell these, but can make them up on occasion by request.

The Gabe Colorway

I did a trade with Marcie from G-Button Baby over the span of Dec.2007 and Jan. 2008. I asked her to design a custom colorway that matches Gabriel's personality. Here's what she came up with. Gabriel loves these longies and hates to take them off. I am very pleased by the quality of these pants. I appliqued the shirt to match with these pants and they make an exceptional outfit!
