Holy Cow! It's been a long time since I updated, hasn't it?

Its been a fun and crazy summer of family drama, sunshine, rain, days at the lake and general fun and mayhem! The last 2 weeks have been a whirlwind of getting the kids and I ready for another year at school.

Long days standing in line, buying books, hoping for classes, getting Chloe set up in her new preschool, Drs appts for check ups, school clothes, AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!!!

I can't beleive that summer is over and a new semester has begun. Good luck all of you students! Let's wear a smile and keep our hearts open to new possibilities!

Hello Everyone! I have been busy making dolls lately. My son has gone to spend a couple of weeks with my Mom and Step Daddy and the two doggies. It's a bit odd to only have two children! I keep doing the mental count "1, oh yeah, 3 isn't here" LOL!! I know he is having a good time though I do miss him.

Would you like to see a picture of the dolls? Oh, of course you want to ;)

They are all listed at my site, Thanks for looking!

Ahh, spent the day today making soy wax melts. They are lovely. I have created a whole line of Aromatherapy blends and I am just LOVING them. Look for them at my etsy shoppe by the end of the week!

Yesterday I spent the day sewing dolls. I haven't sat down and sewn a lot in the last few months so this was nice. The kids played outside all day. I stitched away happily to the sounds of laughter, screaming, water spraying and sunshine flowing in the window. Well, that and the sound of killing demons .... made it up to Season 7 of Buffy the Vampire Slayer on DVD, whooo hooo!!

These are available for sale at my sister site along with a lot of wonderful creative Machine Embroidery Designs :D Thanks for looking!

Good Morning! I am cleaning my kitchen in a very sanitary fashion today so I can make some lotion and body butters! Whooo hoooo! I also may make some Soy Wax Tarts. Pretty excited about those... I just need to find an electric tart melter so I can test them in a tealight potpouri burner and an electric wax melter. If you are a fan of soy wax melts, please post a comment! I need a few testers and would love to choose from my blog readers!

I have listed some beautiful soap today! Gorgeous wee little unscented rounds. These are great for those of you who prefer unscented or just want something to take a long with you. They are filled with Calendula Infused Olive oil, Coconut oil and rich Shea and Cocoa Butters. And they look so pretty in the clover!

You may purchase them at either my etsy shop or my hyena cart !

Just wanted to let you all know that I reopened my hyenacart shop! I love the simplicity of the cart and how pretty my shop looks there ;) please come take a look!

Spent the day gardening today. And I discovered my morning glories are blooming! Wow! I know they are weeds in southern states but here in the Northern California dry heat with clay soil... I have spent 10 years trying to grow them! WHOO HOOO I did it! with a little help from the Shasta College Agriculture Department ;)

The color is so beautiful and vibrant that it glows! Oh, I just love the growing season!
