Well that's what it is, isn't it? :) Time is marching on. I'm encapsuled in an electric blanket with three purring cats this morning, coddling a sore throat. They're calling for 10-15 centimeters of snow, and it's already started. I love the snow, but I don't like the rain they're calling for after the snow. What a mess. The temps have been yo-yo'ing like this all winter. It's enough to drive one mad. It's the perfect kind of day to stay inside and make books, and sort through my BBC period-drama collection!
It's been a mad house around here. I've been inundated with custom journal orders lately...twelve to be exact! I'm certainly not complaining - it's a good thing, and I always have fun making that one-of-a-kind book for someone. I just find it odd that they almost always all come at the same time. hehe! Never ceases to amaze me!
I'm also preparing a few more journals to be sent away to be sold at a lovely little online boutique: La Vie En Rose Boutique. The owner is a lovely person...I'm really looking forward to working with her.
I've started to use some heavy-duty brown oilskin...I really like it's thickness (very durable) and it's weathered look. This one's blank for someone who prefers a journal with no quote page. It's available at my etsy shop.
Last week I also made some new soaps...another batch of my best seller, Lavender & Oatmeal, but also a new scent combination: Lime & Ginger (which is now my favourite!) as well Citrus with Lemon Peel for extra exfoliation. Really nice bars. After a lot of trial and error, I've finally settled on one recipe that I will be using for ALL of my soaps. I just LOVE it - it's so creamy, rich and moisturizing, and the lather is just right!
