Day off

I have today off! I do have to go to the Dr. this morning, but after that I feel some soap making coming on! lol

The hardest part is deciding on what scent to use. I should probably do a summery type scent, or one intended for Happily Ever After.. decisions, decisions.. lol

Feeling icky

So the girls and I have been sick for .... well... weeks now. It pretty much sucks.

I got a head cold, that after a week went down into my chest, and I coughed for two weeks. Then my littlest one got a stomach flu. 24 hrs. Then I got it, and my oldest got it. Now I have another cold, sore throat and cough.

GAH! I've been eating oranges, eating healthily in general.. tryyyyying to get rest, yeah right..

Hopefully this cold will go away soon, and then we can all stay healthy for a while. It just makes work so miserable and it sucks there already, I can't really call in, even if I need to.. plus it zaps my creativity completely, so I haven't been creating much of anything or working on the stores or anything. Other than work on a few orders that came in. Ugh.

Wow this is a super whiny post, sorry about that! lol

Tomorrow I have off, in which I had planned to do a ton of housework that needs doing, grocery shop and errands.. I think I will... grocery shop, do one of the super important errands.. and then nap. I need to get better!!

Time to create

Goals for the rest of the week

*Make scrub for CraftServer swap.. I STILL don't know what scent I'm going to do! lol
*Figure out what program to use for labels instead of Photoshop
*Post Mother's Day gift sets
*Make 2 new soaps
*Set up a photoshoot day to work on pictures


So, I joined Artfire!! With a basic account, it's totally free! Who knew?! lol Probably... lots of people. But it's new to me! lol

I've only just started, and it's still a bit confusing to me, but I got a few listings up, and I've been browsing a bit to check it out. Seems like lots of people on Etsy are there too. Makes sense. lol

Hopefully I'll get a chance to read up on Artfire policies, and get my page filled out a bit more.

Until then!

Don't be afraid

I need to remind myself not to be afraid. I really fear change. I fear failure. I'm the one who won't try something new, because of those fears. It's why I still do the job I do.. among other things.

I'm afraid, when things seem to be going well... that I'll screw it up and ruin it. I want to have a successful business. I want to grow it.. I want to improve my life! It scares me though. How will I do it? What if I make the wrong choices and I fail?

I need to be strong, plow ahead and try not to let my fears, keep me from even trying. How can I make the changes I dream about, if I don't try?!

Please say things like, if at first you don't succeed, try again! And don't let fear of failure keep you from your dreams... it's all easier said than done, if you ask me.

I'm going to do my best... and remember this feeling I have right now. Afraid, yes... but determined. Change is scary, but it can be good too. Failure sucks, but how will I feel, 10.. 20 years from now, if I never even tried... more of a failure than if I had.

So smile girl. Keep at it! Nothing will get accomplished without some hard work, but just think what you'll have to show for it! Something to be proud of, for sure.

First... yay for the weekend!! I guess I'm pretty lucky working in retail and getting weekends off.
We're celebrating the girl's birthdays all this weekend! Non-stop Paaaartaaaay! lol

Hopefully I'll be able to squeeze in some soaping time. I need to rebatch the last batch I made. It overheated, and cracked and sunk in the middle. *sad face* It smells great tho! lol

The coast was great. Rainy, and I was sick for the first two days. lol But really, I had a good time. We got home yesterday, so we got to celebrate Easter at home after all.

I missed my internet tho! lol I was soooo distressed when we got home yesterday and I couldn't get my computer to turn on! LOL Hopefully that doesn't keep up.. I can't afford to fix it, or get a new one!

So in soap and b&b news... I think I've perfected sugar scrubs to EXACTLY how I want em. lol I kept thinking I had it, but then no... I'd tweak it a bit, and a bit more... now, I think it's perfect! It also should hold up pretty well in hot weather, except of course those few days we get over 90. lol
