New Garden Video

In order to show off my pumpkin patch I made this little youtube video. I'm really not a video expert. It was the first time I made a public youtube video, so my notes were a little off. I was getting used to the editor. I hope you like it though. You will be able to get an idea about how I am growing the herbs and pumpkins that I use in my products including Holy Basil and Calendula. I wasn't able to point out every herb, maybe next time.

Winter Blog Hop with Aquariann

aquariann's Winter Blog Hop

My Etsytwitter fairy artist friend Aquariann is hosting a winter blog hop. Check it out by following the link to her blog.

I've been hunkered down here since Sunday trying to get over a winter cold. Thankfully I'm just about there. While my list of products that I'm running out of grows I've been resting and watching movies. I just found yesterday that the full Mists of Avalon series was on youtube, so that was fun to watch.

While I was sick and resting I also came up with a last minute gift idea in my Etsy shop. Can you believe there is still time? I made u-print Aquarian Bath gift certificates for my Bath and Body shop. They are in $20, $30 and $50 (for 45) denominations. Each gift certificate is personalized same day with the the giver and receivers name and a numbered code to use at redemption.

Hope you have a great Christmas and don't have too many last minute errands to run!

Manatees at Blue Springs

Lucky me I got to see manatees at Blue Springs yesterday. I was so happy we finally got to see some up close. Here is Tessa telling us to look!

Coming up for air...

Rolling over, maybe to get that black fish out from underneath her.

We also saw a group of 5 manatees, a mother and 2 that were very young. Unfortunately the pictures of them didn't turn out as well.

On the way home I got lucky, Tessa fell asleep, so I was able to stop and pick up more silicon molds while Daddy waited in the car with her. The blue sun shaped molds are for my re-vamped lotion bar kit and the trees will be for next Christmas's soaps. I love planning ahead!

Check out the new look of my lotion bar kit on AquarianBath or at Etsy if you have an old web browser.
