Life Is wonderful

I thought I would post a few things going on in my life lately.

My daughter married in July and I found out I am going to be a grandmother. How exciting is that?!

I have been creating tons of new pendants the last few months. I can't seem to get them on Etsy before I sell one without a pic taken. I love it!

Our bath and body products are selling well too. Hand sanitizer is extremely popular with all the H1N1 going around. It's nice to help keep down the germs and have a nice fragrance too!

Local candle orders are coming full force during the fall season. There isn't anything like burning a fall fragrance in the cool crisp evening while cozying up on the couch with a good book or good show!

We recently started homeschooling my youngest daughter. Man o Man that is a challenge all it's on. I commend anyone out there who homeschooled from the beginning. You are #1 in my book.

I hope I didnt bore you too much! I wanted to share with you all the wonderful things going on in my life!

I would love to hear how you are!

Summer Time Treats-Orange Banana Smoothie Pops

In the summer time I love trying out new recipes from Country Living Magazine. I tried this one with a few modifications and our family loved them.

Orange-Banana Smoothie Pops

1 container(s) (7-ounce) Greek yogurt
2/3 cup(s) thawed orange juice concentrate
2 large bananas
Zest of 1 lime
1 tablespoon(s) fresh lime juice
DIRECTIONS: Puree one Greek yogurt, thawed orange juice concentrate, bananas, lime zest, and fresh lime juice in a blender.
Pour into six 3-ounce molds. (We used mini baking tins with Popsicle sticks, but you can also substitute paper cups.) Freeze until smoothie pops are solid, about 4 hours.
To release pops, dip molds into hot water until pops loosen and slide out. If using cups, peel away paper.

NEW products for you!

We are working up a storm to get our new products out to the public.
Our bath bombs made it to the store last week.
Already sold a couple on Etsy and hear is what one of our fabulous customers PrimitiveJunkie over here had to say about the BATH BOMBS!!!
I highly recommend the bath bomb for anyone with any type of dry skin problem, my skin has never been softer after a bath. I can't say enough good things. I will be passing your card out to my girlfriends for sure.

We just finished lip balms this week and working on labels for them.
If you have a lip balm fetish you will want to try these. We are hoping to have them on the shelf by the end of the week.
We're going to carry 5 flavors to start with.

Banana Blast
Mega Melon
Strawberry Splash
Wildberry Burst
What more can I say, YUM YUM!!!

Hope to see you all soon! I need to head back to my second home and plug away at more new items like the SUGAR SCRUBS that we will be listing on Etsy soon.
