A while back, I won a drawing for a free mystery item from author R. J. Blain. They were giving out copies of damaged, proof books, books with old covers, that type of thing. I was stoked, and then life distracted, and I forgot. R. J. Blain writes a variety of fiction, including under the … Continue reading R. J. Blain – Author Gift!
I'm going to preface that I don't sell soap. I make soap for my own entertainment and use. There are TONS of awesome soap makers out there, and one of my high school classmates makes soap now too. You can find her here. Anywho, there was a sale a loooong while back on scents and … Continue reading Making Melt and Pour Soap
I have a variety of plants in my closet right now. Most of them are seedlings, but a few are larger potted plants such as my sequoia, my coffee, or my tea plants.

And I made masks: Hopefully they … Continue reading Harry Potter Masks!

My brother had gifted it to me, and I loved it, so I was bummed. I tried buying another hat from the same company, but their hat … Continue reading This Hat Though

I had some new colors and scents arrive earlier this week that I had been waiting for, so it was time to play … Continue reading Mint and Sage Soap!
Still working on masks! I'm using the pattern from the Deaconess website, found here. These ones are blue on the outside and light blue on the inside, and they're for my husband. Next are a set for my mom. They're pale blue with polka dots on the outside and flowers on the inside: Some for … Continue reading I’m Running Out of Elastic!
We woke up this morning to this: There's a sort of hush when snow is coming down and deep like this. It's lovely, but as the day goes on you hear snow blowers starting, people shoveling, the snow plow. My husband does most of the shoveling, though I try to help. I herniated a disc … Continue reading We FINALLY Own a Snow Blower

I hadn't ordered … Continue reading Only The Best of People Mail Me Seeds – But What Type Are They?
