Thankful for family; 15% discount in our soap shop

Thanksgiving vacation is winding down and I feel quite thankful for many things in my life:  family, friends, clothing, shelter...I am very grateful for all the blessings in my life.

Mother and children 2014

I love my kids so much, despite the fact that one is a teenager and one is a preteen.  Sinceriously, I will ALWAYS love my children.  I relish telling them that I cannot wait until they get homes of their own so that I can come over and jump on their couches or leave Fruit Roll-Ups wrappers lying around.  They are my treasures et je les aimerai pour toujours!

New Soaps and Olicity!

Just made this lovely Organic Lavender Handmade Soap:

It will be ready for purchase at Prairie Sunshine Soaps' Etsy shop around December 15, 2014.


Here is a soap that I just put up for sale in our shop today:

Yes, it's Perfect Pumpkin Handmade Soap with Bentonite Clay.  It smells like pumpkin, cinnamon, cloves, and maple.  It's very spicy and lovely.  Check it out here.


And I must mention Arrow again today.


Well, because Olicity!

Have a super week!

Arrow, Soap, Sewing, and the Royals

I will freely admit it:  I have an obsessive personality.  That serves me well much of the time and it certainly keeps me entertained.  My new obsession?  Arrow on the CW:

Need I say more?

Well, I will say this:

I made some new soap today--Lavender Vanilla.  It's a variation of a soap I made in the past called Vanilla Lavender. I used a different combination of fragrance and essential oils and different coloring.  Here is a sneak peek before I put it to bed.  I will cut it in a couple of days so check my Facebook page here if you would like to see what it looks like before going on the curing rack.


In other news, my sewing skills have been reawakened as I "sewed to the oldies" at a local fabric store with a work colleague.  It was fun.  I am a big charm pack fanatic and here are a few of the things I worked with last night.


And lastly, the Kansas City Royals lost the World Series and I am just now ready to talk about it.  Just kidding.  I was disappointed but not devastated.  I am very proud of my hometown baseball team and I congratulate them on their fine performance this season.  I may have to make my way back to the K next year to cheer them on in person.  Love you, Royals!  Thank you for making me a fan again!

Ta ta for now!
