In our spare time...whatever!!!

I knew today was gonna be really swamped with soap orders and these beans were weighing heavy on my mind, so last night at 9:00 I started the process. I figgered it'd be cool in the house to start up the stove...mind you, I don't think I ever turn off the stove these days, as the soap orders keep rollin' in...weeeee...

The new Brown Sugar and Fig...yummm...one of my faves and I love the golden bee's wax color, these going to Grasshoppers in LeClaire.
I have a new Iowa scent too...Corn Silk...that will being going up to Amazing Grace in the Amanas
TODAY SANDY...heads up!!!
Sandy has become a really good friend and partner in crime in the soap biz...she sells TONS in her sweet lil' shop.

Piper busies herself with the birdhouse production...my daughter the carpenter/slash/artist...
you say the apple doesn't fall far from the tree...
It always cracks me up when she says...
I'M TURNING INTO MY MOTHER!!!

Piper had an interesting visitor in her shop yesterday...the MAYOR...
how odd is that...never in 10 years of business in the downtown did he ever stop in.
Guess he couldn't find a place to park...LOL...

Guess all the scuttlebutt made him curious.
And true to her Ma's form, she told him the reason for leaving downtown...
PARKING!!!
That shouldn't be too hard to figure out...DUH!!!

...and for all of you Iowa Hawkeye fans, your very own birdhouse, even your avian friends can be cool now...and don't ya love the candle jars...where does she get all this talent..
heehee...


Stop on by The Candle Shed...
trust me, you won't regret!!!

I just left a message for Piper -- I can just see that cupcake birdhouse hangin from my backyard tree!! Love, love, love the brown sugar fig soap, you have just the right balance of scent and the color is wonderful. Like I've said, it's flyin' off the shelves down here in KC. Peace, Sistah.

You do realize, my dearie, that to have all that talent and drive in one family is , like, totally NOR FAIR! But I love it! The birdhouses, the soap, all of it ..even the beans! And what is that painting behind the beans? Pretty!
