Hello all my wonderful family-friends!  I hope all's well!

I am so sorry I have been unable to come and visit but I've been having a rough time these last few weeks, and more busy than imaginable.  To give you a brief summary of what I've went through, I was late getting my first batch of soap to the customer and worked feverishly through the night to have it ready for him the next day.  Ironically, the second batch came out too strong, so it wasn't usable -- I think I was just too tired to have even attempted starting making in the first place.  Next, I had one box filled with 27 glass bottles of parfum and the hubby accidently dropped the box -- you know the rest!  I had to redo those bottles!  Unfortunately, I haven't had time to take any pictures, I've been moving so fast with none of the time available at the rate I'm going.  I'm tired but trying to get through this.  I don't think I'll be doing this again next year, it's getting to be way too enormous.

Anyway, I wanted to remind you that I will "pop" in tomorrow for the pendant drawing.  I don't know if there are any new participants but I'll be doing the drawing for those of you who have posted.  If you haven't, you have until 12 p.m. (CT) tonite!

Again, I apologize for having to run, but I still have a considerable amount left to do and I have to have all my orders completed by Saturday.

I'll be dropping back by tomorrow with the drawing results!

I miss you all so very much, and I hope holiday preparations are going great!!!  I should be back next week!  And for those of you who have contacted me and send me some love, thank you so very much!!!


P.S.  I'm still waiting on photos/words for resin pendants from a couple of the winners -- don't forget to email them to me.  My email address is:  audreyfrel@sbcglobal.net

Oh I am so sorry you are having such a hard time with your soap.. I have thought of you often and have been praying for you.. So glad you were able to post, I was afraid something was wrong with your aunt.

I have changed internet services and I have been fighting with them. Still having problems. Know I am praying for you my friend.. I have so missed seeing your sweet comments on my blog, but certainly understand..

Audrey, I feel bad for you having to do all that work. I've sold 99 of the glitter bulbs that I personalize with names, and I'm tired of it. I can't imagine doing what your doing. I'm hoping I can win a pendant this time around. Take care, Shari (cricutrookie)
You don't have to visit my blog, I haven't had time to post anything.
