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:

So, I decided to give Etsy a try. It's still a work in progress but I will get there. Here is the newest necklace that I am listing.

Being new at this whole selling thing I am open to suggestions and tips.

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.

Got home late last night from the Dover race. We had a blast....I love the races and we took our boy's and my MIL to their first race. It was a long day but, we had loads of fun. There is always so much going on at the track. We watched the Speed channel pre-race show. Then we watched the motocross stunt bikes doing tricks, parachuter's and then on to the race.

Mother's Day Present

Hope everyone had a wonderful Mother's Day! I wanted to share my Mother's Day present. We spent all day Saturday at the car dealership and wow is it exhausting buying a new car. Definitely worth it though.

Corn for Sale

So a co-worker and I were driving to work the other day and we saw a produce stand on the side of the road. There was a sign on the light pole pointing you to the stand. Well attached to that sign was a sign written in cardboard advertising corn for sale. When we saw the sign we could not contain ourselves, we both looked at each other and busted out laughing. At that point I can honestly say that I realized why people talk about West Virginia. I moved to West Virginia from New York so I am allowed to pick on West Virginian's.

Anyway, this morning I took my digital camera with me because I knew hubby needed a picture of this sign. So, on my way to work I took the pic.

Entrecard Ads

To all of my entrecard advertisers:

In order to stay loyal to those entrecard droppers that want to advertise on my blog by using credits I want you to know that I am leaving these spots open for you. I will not be accepting any of the paid ads offered by entrecard unless there are no adverts already pending in my queue. In order to be fair I have decided that those who advertise by using credits are the loyal droppers that I find in my inbox most days so as my promise to you "You will have first choice and will receive your promised amount of exposure time".

Happy blogging!

It's been awhile since I have done a post. We are remodeling our kitchen and I wanted to share the work in progress. Unfortunately I don't have before pictures so let me tell you a little about the before. The center island was just the rectangle counter in the pic and it was green. The sink was white and stained horribly.

Hubby tiled all of my counters and I got a new sink (stainless steel). I will post follow-up pics later. He also added the L shaped drop down counter around the side of the counter for the boys to do homework. They can now use a kitchen chair versus needing stools. He also put in recessed lights and will be adding pendant lights over top of the center island. I can't wait to see the whole thing done. Then we will be moving on to the floor.

I went to see my nephew yesterday. He is such a precious little thing. Every time I hold him he goes to sleep on me so, I couldn't tell you what he is like when he is awake. He is growing fast.

Smooth Away Review

I was asked to try this new product and write a review. I received the items in the mail and it was nicely packaged. It comes in a nice vinyl case for easy storage and you receive 2 applicators, one small and one large. Each applicator has 5 Flex-crystal replacement pads with a sticky side to attach to the applicators. The Flex-crystal pads are similar to fine grain sandpaper. There were also very detailed instructions on how to use the applicators as well as a tube of moisturizer that also helps slow hair growth.

I was impressed with the product as I have tried many of them. It is extremely easy to use and removed the hair as promised leaving my legs smooth. I was pleasantly surprised by the fact that I had no irritation from the flex-crystal pads as I had originally expected. I used the small applicator to do a few irritating areas on my face where unwanted hair grows and it also worked great with no irritation. Unfortunately, I used all 5 of the large pads to do my legs and discovered that by the next day the hair had returned. I really like the moisturizer. I'm not sure that it has slowed the growth process but it does work to keep my legs from drying out and becoming itchy.

This product costs $14.99 on the Smooth Away site. I'm not sure that I would purchase the product on a regular basis but I did like the way my legs felt after I was done. For the price it would be too costly for one time use. I do feel that this product does what it claims to do and there was no pain like I get from my epilator and definitely not as painful as waxing either. If you have the time and want to spend the extra bucks I would recommend using Smooth Away.

My Nephew

My nephew Caleb decided to make his entrance this morning at 10:43. He weighed 8.59 and was 20 inches. It was a rough day for him. His shoulders got stuck and they had to pull him out so the poor little thing was all bruised. The awesome news is that mom and baby are both doing great.

My apologies

I wanted to apologize to all my Entrecard droppers. I was sick in bed all day yesterday so I didn't get to return any drops. Luckily it must have been a 24 hour bug because I am feeling much better today.

What's been going on?

We are anxiously awaiting the arrival of my little nephew. He isn't due until the end of January but my sister has been having contractions and being this is her 3rd child we are expecting him any time now. I will post updates as I get them.

Work has been crazy because my sister and I work together but, the doctor took her out of work and now I am doing her work along with mine. It makes for a long day and I am exhausted by the time I stop at the gym and then come home.

So that is the story of my life right now....keeping busy. Hope everyone had a wonderful New Year.
