I know I've posted this before...but heres another one!

This is after I attempted to resize them.  Looks like crap lol.  I"m  trying to learn all this for Etsy and I'm finding I'm NOT good at all at this type of thing.  I cant even figure out postage lol.  I think my mind is in to many places at one time.  I'm trying to balance full time work, family, grandchildren, marriage, my business and I'm thinking I"m sinking.   My goal was to be out of my full time time soon, but to be honest since some recent changes happenned at work, I'm not feeling so frustrated and so I'm going to continue on.  I do like what i do overall,,,and i LOVE my business but fact is--I am still putting into the business and not making anything.  Its done mostly out of love and joy of what I do.  Besides I have some personal goals I want to meet.  

One good thing --I've received my new sofa from Pottery Barn!  First time ever hubby and I custom ordered anything and waited 2 months for it!  We love it, and I stepped out of my comfort zone and went with RED!  I will post pictures after I get it all set up.  Right now its got funny tiny pillows on it and its not flattering at all.

My soaps are in a store now in my little town and so far doing very well.  I'm excited about that.  Once I get this Etsy thing figured out I will work on that also.   Anyhow, I hope everyone is having a great winter so far and looking forward to the approaching Christmas!

3 Thanks for your comments!:

Hey Dawnie,
Sounds like your one busy lady!
I think your soaps are very cute.
We're officially a blizzard right now. Oh Wisconsin can have some brutal winters!
Take Care and Merry Christmas to you too,

Your schedule sounds as busy as it can get. I'm glad that your experience with working changed so you could stay. I think of you whenever I splash on a little of the fragrance you created for me. Plus, I'm going to have to start sleeping with the Shea butter on my hands is awesome.

Happy Holidays!
