Hello everyone! I am thrilled to have you visit with me and I hope you enjoy your stay. I absolutely love company, sharing, and making new friends so I hope you find something here that inspires, motivates, or just pleases you in some way.

Of course, I love to visit and be inspired also. So if I don't already drop in on you, please let me know where I can find you and I'll hop on over to see what you're doing or to just say "hi".

Before you go, I would love it if you'd please leave me a comment letting me know you dropped in! Actually, I'd just love to hear from you -- comments, opinions, or questions you'd like me to answer.

In the meantime, relax and make yourselves at home... you're family here!!!

I'll be seeing you!

Happy Easter, everyone!  I hope you are all well and enjoying this special day.

I'd like to thank everyone for joining me on "It's Earth Day/Gaby's Birthday" blog hop!!!  I very much have enjoyed reading all the wonderful comments!!!  It was a fabulous and fun hop, and I'd hate to think you missed any of the great blogs along the trail -- they were all awesome!!!

Thank you to the many new followers who are now part of my family circle of friends!!!  I love having you here, can't wait to get to know you better, and I hope you'll always feel comfortable here!  Open arms are always here to welcome you in!

I find myself continuously apologizing because I'm still trying to maintain 2 households (and there's no internet at my aunt's), and it makes it really difficult to be here when or as often as I want to be; and/or to drop in for visits as often. So, especially to my new followers, please give me time to get to you. If I can find you, I promise to get to you.  I know my current family-friends understand things have been very unsettling for me for the past several weeks, and I appreciate the concern and kind comments.  However, hopefully, things are looking like they're taking a turn for the better!  I'm praying so too because I'm desperately missing my regular routine crafting!!! 

Wow, I'm so glad everyone loved the soap recipe, however, please bear in mind that different soaps produce different results.  This is a basic recipe and there are no mistakes -- there's always an adjustment/fix; for instance, if you make the soap too thin -- add 1/4 tsp. salt to each 8 oz. to thicken it; if it doesn't suds enough, add more glycerin (or try baby shampoo because it's mild).  Just play with it, add colorants, herbs, etc. -- make it yours!  Of course if you have any questions, just leave me a comment or email, I'll get right back to you.

As a reminder, I'll announce the winner of my blog candy tomorrow, so if you're name is in the basket, you'll want to know if you've won!

Well, I'm off for Easter preparation/dinner with my family.  I wish you a wonderful day!  And, of course...

I'll be seeing you!

Hi Audrey, hope you had a great Easter. It is difficult to manage two households but bless you for being such a good caregiver. You don't have to apologize because you are so good at doing the blog stuff and commenting - I definitely appreciate you! Take some time out for yourself in between all this, now! :-)
