Yeah, more than likely. I'd say that both of these are hindered by my laptop being out of commission. It's like this: I'm the world's worst for not turning it off. I'm homeschooling my older daughter all day, squeezing in some soapmaking after school's over, darting into the office to update my Facebook or Twitter streams or, on occasion, fixing or upgrading something on my website. Do y'all really want to hear about that stuff? Probably not.
Back to the whole "not turning it off" thing. I love my laptop and our home's wifi connection because they enable me to watch my shows in the evenings and still get some of my computer work done. They can also allow me to work on blogs and so forth while I sit in the living room as my daughter works. Unfortunately, until I can get a new cord for my laptop, neither of those things is happening. Soon! Hopefully soon!
Besides my lack of blogs lately, what has been keeping me busy? I've created a new blog for Moms of all sorts, colors, professions, in-home, out-of-home and even manly moms (aka, Dads). It's for us and it affirms that we as parents are God's masterpieces, and those children we're raising, nurturing and loving are themselves masterpieces that God created and is still using us to fine tune.
I have a fabulous new private label customer in Elissa, owner and lead stylist at Salon E in Kinston. Elissa and I met in April at Bee Fest in Kinston and the girls and I had the pleasure of taking a little road trip up to visit with her and discuss her spa collection needs. How fabulous was that! It was awesome seeing her again, and I'm so excited about the fantastic products I'm making especially for her. When her shelves are stocked, I'll post it so you can buy my wonderful soaps and spa treats from her.
Elissa requested two soaps that I didn't have in stock. Well, I have one of them in stock, but it's a clearanced item. Her requests were for soaps that get you going in the mornings, and I recommended peppermint and Crystal Coast Morning. Peppermint simply uses redistilled Peppermint essential oil for an in-your-face, tingle-your-senses bathing experience. Crystal Coast Morning packs the punch of waking up at the beach on a brisk Winter morning where the only sounds you hear are the waves kissing the sand, birds calling to one another and "ahhhh"- the sound of your first sip of coffee. You'll be able to get these delectable goodies from Elissa as well.
