Hall Elementary Spring Fling Carnival

Last weekend I attended the Spring Fling Carnival for Hall Elementary.

It was kind of fun, I didn't sell any items but at the end of the day a lady came up to me and asked if I gave lessons.

I was like "Yeessss?"

I explained that I had never done such a thing but that I was willing to try, so we set it up!

I realize this is a crappy setup. :)
I was alone, with limited product, and limited stands.
I know it can be better.

My dishcloths!!!

All in all it could have been a better day, but I still had fun. I learned some things and now I have room to grow. Weekend knitting lessons here I come!!!


Soap Satchels!!!

I have a new product that I am extremely excited about:

The Soap Satchel!!!

You can thank Barry for the name. :)

The basic idea is that this item is a pouch,
you put some of your favorite bar soap in the pouch
add water
and scrub a dub dub!

These satchels are FANTASTIC for sensitive skin. They're made
with 100% cotton and they're super super soft. I've been using mine for
about a week now.

If you're looking for something to scrape the top
layer of your skin off for shaving...this isn't your thing. But
it is perfect for daily scrubbing.

The soap shown in the photos is tiny, these satchels
are made for your basic, full sized bar soaps.

Another really cool thing:

I made this up. Not the idea of putting bar soap in a pouch
but the pattern. It's all mine!!!

So Excited!!!


#51 Start a garden

I can't believe I forgot to put this in my list of things to do this summer!!

Start a Garden!!

Well, probably because I already have a garden, I should say: Maintain and Widen my Garden. :)

As spring is in full swing here in the South I have a couple of pictures!!

So I was pruning and this little beauty was a result of
that. I cut the long leaves off and so I got this wonderful swirly pattern.
This plant is the same kind as the photo below, this one
is just pre-floofed. That's a technical term.

My beautiful Don Juan roses!!! This is my third boom of the season,
but my first two were given to Mom. :)
They are a beautiful bush/vine combination with an
incredibly aromatic scent. I just love them!

And my second pride and joy!! This little guy is the beginning
of my garden this year and I already have a teeny tiny tomato!!!


There will be more to come soon as we get more money. I have this wonderful plan for my backyard...that I can't complete until we put our very expensive fence up. So I must make do but I still have a wonderful idea for a temporary vegetable garden.

New Product!

These sets of three dish/wash cloths are $12.00 (plus shipping). They're hand knit with 100% cotton yarn. The textured pattern helps with cleaning tough messes (or exfoliation!).

They measure 7"x7".

These make wonderful housewarming and baby shower gifts. They're also great for a hostess gift!

Long lasting and reusable, these dish cloths are eco-friendly and an easy way to go green! Stop using paper towels to get tough messes off your counter tops! These cloths are absorbent and super soft. They wont scratch anything, even china!

Machine wash delicate and lay flat to dry.

Many colors and combinations available!

Thanks for looking!!!!

My Bucket List

The title says it all.

1. Go Toobing. Duh!
2. Learn to Paddle surf? I think that's what it's called.

3. Go to the beach, early morning, with Kinsey, my black lab. The basic plan is to go early, walk the beach, play fetch, then come home for lunch.
4. Set up our hammock and actually enjoy it.
5. Go to a carnival.
6. Go to a cookoff. The Gibsons have a cookoff team.
7. Hang out by a pool.
8. Go to Howie's Crawfish Boil!!!

10. Go Hiking.
11. Play a game of Frisbee Golf.
12. Take pictures of Fonde Park and add to Yelp.
13. Go to the movies. Movies have always been a summer thing for me. There's something about having sun burned skin and watching a movie in the cold and the dark.
14. Ok. This is going to sound stupid...and I can't find a picture of it. It's where you take a short surf board and you use it right where the water meets the shore on the beach. When the water recedes from a wave it leaves a small amount of water on the shore, you take the board, run, set it down (while running) and slide. That's the best way I can explain it. :)
