so today was a chilly day outside. sunshining brightly a brisk breeze outside that creeps its way through the old windows in my front porch! Its a good day, i made my first trade the other night, and my hubby shipped it out for me today! I went back today, and am in the process of trading with another lady!! im totally liking this idea. I can get my christmas shopping done, while moving inventory ;) hehe... while in the chat i saw cutnglue and for some reason...well (its because my mommy brain in mush & i no longer have the short term memory i once had) i didnt put her etsy name with her blog name... am i the only one this happens to??? so sorry mamma... but know that now you are forever (hopefully) etched in my memory linking you "etsy" with you "blog"! ;) hehe. we have fun in the tradeing chat rooms...and get a chance to shop for stuff our "friends" make! yeah!!

also today..
my girls were a bit bouncy (as always) and i come downstairs to find them playing...well, im not sure what. but my "bell" was on her little car in capri pants and a hat i crocheted! she had her shoes on and a princess cd player strung around her arm! she was obviously going somewhere, and when she saw me she stopped to say hi! so funny! after nap today we did art! my oldest used these paint pens and did a paint by number pic, while my 3 yr.old and i drew on a huge piece of paper! we practiced squares..and now she can draw houses! she has recently began to draw quite well. (it runs in our families) she started with suns and flowers..they look similar..then on to people! potato head people (i call them) big circle heads with arms and legs sticking out! ;) but shes got detail down...fingers and feet ect.
plus now that im homeschooling she is picking stuff up from her sister..she has learned the letter "I". and writes it on all her pics! its great.
well, time to go. hopefully ill get to do more trading or have some purchases soon ... holidays are coming ;)

Looking for all natural soaps or candles? Then try OakenstoneHandmade. I recently bought someof her handmade soap... i have heard that store bought soap is stripped of the glycerine that helps with added moisture. So i decided to try these all natural oatmeal soaps from
OakenstoneHandmade. Once i washed with it i felt not only clean..but not as dry! They lathered up quite nice, and didnt have a harsh or chemically smell!

With Coconut Oil, Palm Oil, Castor Oil, Safflower Oil, Glycerine (kosher, of vegetable origin), Oatmeal, as some of the ingredients, this was a nice soft soap that left no residue and left me without the "burn" of dry skin!

At good prices and friendly services she makes not only all natural soaps but candles as well!

custom order wreath

So i got a custom order for two wreaths! Not only are they significantly bigger than my doorknob wreaths, but she wanted shatterproof ornaments on it! And now they are done!

These gorgeous beauties can withstand a bit more then the regular ornamental wreaths. They can go OUTDOORS!! with kids and pets the "shatterproof" is a good alternative. Though not available in as many choices as regular ornaments, i have found an ubundant supply of colors and shapes to choose from.

Does this sound appealing to you?? I still wrap the base in a satin ribbon. (this gives a finished look from both sides of the wreath) and i still embelish it with not only ornaments, but beads, bows, ect. almost anything you like can be added to these beautiful decorations.
Not only for christmas... these wreaths can adorn your door throughout the holiday season..or for any season! As a lovely welcome to all those who enter!

Im taking custom orders ;)

so get them while you can!
