I have not been blogging or working on product as much as I would like. The above pics explain why. As we wind down spring sports and activities I hope to work on some new products over the next couple of weeks so my customers know I am still in business! But then there will be a quiet period over the summer while I recover from shoulder surgery. So I just wanted to let you know that I am still here and trying my best to juggle it all. I love that my kids are busy, ambitious and social but this fall I will come up with a new schedule and that will include more work time for me! I am not asking for time to pamper myself - I just need to create! I know there are many of you out there that can relate. Any suggestions? I would love to hear them!
The other day I received a delicious sample of tea from Lori. She writes for The Ivy Leaf Tea blog. They do lots of giveaways. The same day the tea arrived, my new Romantic Home magazine was also in the mail. Then I received my new Victoria magazine and waited for that special time to enjoy some of my favorite things. I had the Creme Brulee from The Ivy Leaf Tea and it was amazing! I highly recommend it!
I recently won this beautiful assortment of candles from a very sweet blogger Diana Lyn at Candles from the Heart. Here is a pic (borrowed from Diana's blog) of her great products. The French Market Candle, which I have not even lit yet is filling up my powder room with a sweet floral scent. The lotion which also smells great is sitting on my kitchen counter for when I am done with kitchen duty. It was so much fun opening up her beautifully wrapped package and uncovering all of my new candles to make my home smell heavanly! Can't wait to use the tarts too!
Also, Diana Lyn has awarded me with the "Arte Y Pico Award". Thanks so much for everything Diana Lyn - You made my month!
