i am on a quest this morning... for more pumpkin soap.

as i've grown accustomed to bathing with it and i'm almost out i must get more!

No store-bought soap cake for me, ohhhh no... only handmade natural pumpkin soap for my pasty epidermis ^.*

So yeh... i'll certainly post whatever i do end up getting here with a review! would be REALLY great if i could find a soap maker willing to trade...

Entries are rollin' in now... i can't WAIT to see what everybody comes up with, so far its been a fabulous show of artistic talent ^.^

I still haven't decided what to give 2nd and 3rd place winners.. i've said discounts on purchase, but how much? and under what requirements? *hmmm* gotta make it good though... i have a feeling its gonna be a tough call deciding on a winner for this...

in other news ~

i'm making new jewelry as fast as my cold lil hands will go! and listing accordingly at Etsy! I came across a fabulous clearance at a boutique thats closing for good here in town so i cleaned them out! I'm tearing apart everything i purchased and re-making it into fabulous new jewelry!

Not only am i up-cycling, but i'm able to sell the jewelry i make for a bit cheaper than i might usually be able to b/c of the saved supply cost! so its just awesomeness all around in my opinion and i'm excited to get back to work this morning making even MORE lovelies ^.^

~ Here's a few peices already for sale at Etsy ~

i sold one necklace like this already! just listed yesterday!

To view listings and/or make a purchase:

and i finally got around to taking more pictures modeling jewelry (so many ppl like to see what something looks like when being worn as apposed to on display) and i think i got some good pix... if i do say so myself ^.*

I just have to blog about this WONDERFUL soap i just received in the mail this morning!

Its from Chase Street Soap Co. ~ at Etsy, of course.

I'm a salty wench at heart and the wonderfully Vintage maritime images used on the labels caught my eye immediately.. next was the descriptions of each all-natural, animal-friendly item and the 're-cycling' program for the bottles... and so, i added her to my Favs.

Lo and behold, the next day i had a message from the lovely lady that runs the shop, offering me a free full-size soap of my choice for being the 275th person to add her shop as a favorite! I was THRILLED ~ of course and decided upon the Applejack Kick Liquid Soap to go in my kitchen. The scent was described as being "spiced" and I'll try just about anything once that has a touch of "spice" to it ^.*

So... it came in the mail this morning, complete with a return address label to send the bottle back to be re-filled for Half-Price (the afore-mentioned recycling program) and a cute personal note sealed with a skull-and-crossbones stamp on aged paper. How nifty is THAT?

If you've been looking for a great, all-natural soap with some personality ~ i suggest
Chase Street Soap Co.

With every confidence, i promise, you won't be disappointed ^.*

too much? pish tosh.

i'm so ridiculously busy these days... seriously. i try to explain everything i have to do in a day to some people and they just look at me, dumbfounded. i'm not complaining! don't get me wrong! i wouldn't trade my life for anyone's and i LOVE having so much to do. i never get bored anyway and i feel so productive and creative... its quite nice actually ^.*

Sophie is about to cut at least 3 new teeth.. possibly 4... hopefully not ALL at once but there may be no avoiding it. She woke up this morning at 6:30 talking about "tees" and "bikkuts" so i got up and made her biscuits and cheesy eggs after liberally applying the orajel and handing over the teething tablets (a teething baby's best friend, no doubt).

I'm running a contest! First one of its kind for me! I'm really excited to see how it goes! Below is the info copied from my MySpace blog (the contest is via MySpace) :

So i'm thinkin' it might be kinda neat to run a contest for FAN-ART to see what you all come up with!

So, i figured, why not offer something for FREE to get everyone interested?!

Not to mention, i'd love to get to know some of my fellow Artists/Creative People here on MySpace a little better!

Do as you like, Be Creative! Surprise me!

I will choose my favorite and award the Artist with a CUSTOM Necklace!

Custom meaning... one-of-a-kind and designed BY me FOR you.
