Lovely Stories

recently i've discovered a wonderful new podcast from folks get up on stage and tell true stories without notes. it is soooo wonderful! i've becomed very intrigued with the NYC playwright Edgar Oliver~ what a wonderful unique person! he's really too complex to even begin to explain, but he is very inspiring, i think.

Slow Days....

boy, September has been off to an amazingly slow start sales wise. i listen to Marketplace on NPR with such trepidation lately... sighhhh. at any rate, it has allowed me to get a lot done, and start getting stock ready for the Holidays! yay! hannah has been coming in twice a week to make batches of wild soap (new fragrance blend of frankincense and myrrh with golden sparkles in it!) she also made a bunch of buddhas.. prompting her to start singing "golden buddhas fill my mind...."

rainy days.....

we've been having hurricane rains come through lately, it has been very very slow at the shop this week! but i have been able to get a lot done, including getting a lot of soap wrapped up and Hannah made a new batch of wonderful lip balm (most of which is now labeled! yay!)

i've also been working on a bunch of new card ideas.....mmmm. stay tuned! above is one i've been so excited to make, i finally got my japanese maple leaf punch--i've had the lovely red vellum for some time now.
