Ok, the one good thing about the snow is that it has been a really long time since I felt like posting anything. Now it seems I am posting because I think if I see another snowflake I could throw up. I have about had it with the snow piling up. Growing up in NY state you would think I would be used to it but I left there because I hate it. I have lived in WV for about 14 years now and I can honestly say that this is the first time that I have seen this much snow in one winter much less in the span of one week. This is the snow that we got from 2 storms this week. It is piled up to my windows.

New Item

I have added a new necklace to my Etsy shop. With fall just around the corner I decided to start with some vibrant fall colors.

This next one I haven't listed yet. I am having a hard time deciding on a name and the pictures do not do it justice. The glass heart is a beautiful deep purple with a hint of brown and cream.

I have decided to have a Grand Opening for my Etsy shop. I will be adding new items by the end of the weekend but in honor of my grand opening I have decided to give a free beaded stretch bracelet with the purchase of $20 or more. You can choose the color you want and the type of beads are up to me. See below for a sneak peak:

Cooking Oil Stains

This is amazing:

I was cleaning up after dinner one evening and when I picked up the frying pan with grease in it I spilled the grease down the front of my pants. I took them off and immediately put tide on the spot and then washed them. When I took them out of the washer it looked like the spot was gone so I put them in the dryer. Well low and behold when I took them out of the dryer the grease spot was still there and now I had succeeded in setting the stain in. I was going to throw them away but for some reason I didn't. (Now I'm glad)

Well, I took them out the other day and decided I needed to research how to remove cooking oil from clothing. I found a lot of great ideas but then I decided I was going to try Goo seems to work for everything else. So, I took my pants and got out the Goo Gone. I proceeded to dump a bunch on the spot, washed and dried them and guess what???? The spot is gone!!!!! It's amazing what this stuff can do. So, run out and make sure you have some Goo Gone on hand at all times. It even removes permanent marker! Now I am going to pull out all of those sweatshirts and T-shirts that have grease splatters on them that I stuffed in the back of the dresser and bring them back to life.
