Making my home cleaner {and safer}

For a few weeks now I’ve been cleaning, purging and organizing here and there.  Every now and then, I feel like I just lose control over the stuff here and I get all weird and have to clean like a mad woman (whatever that looks like). 

I had been hearing about a company that sold cleaning products that were safe for the home and environment so I purchased a bottle and started using it right away.  I had been looking for healthier and greener cleaning products so I thought I should try it.  I was completely AMAZED by how very little of the concentrated product I needed to use to clean and also what a great job it does.  The BEST part about the product is that it doesn’t smell noxious.  My daughter and I have mild asthma, so cleaning is something that I dread for all of us.  I don’t have to cover my nose and mouth when I use this to clean.  Isn’t that great?  Seriously!  No fumes to burn my throat and nose.  You know that feeling when you run to another part of the house to get fresh air.  I don’t even get a tight chest.  That is awesome to me!!  What is this product?  Well…..tada…..


Basic H

Have you heard of it?  If not, let me introduce you to the cleaning product that has replaced the other ones in my home.  It is a concentrated product and so you only have to use a few drops in a spray bottle for cleaning windows and 1/4 of a teaspoon in another spray bottle to clean all of the other surfaces.  I LOVE IT!  I have used it on nearly every surface of our home because it is safe for us.  Phew…


I’ll show you tomorrow one of the things that I cleaned with some of this safe cleaning alternative.  I’ll just give you a clue.  It is something in the kitchen that opens and closes.

If you would like to know more about this and how to get it for your home, go here.  I’d be happy to answer any questions you may have also.


Happy Thanksgiving to you

Today I am thankful for all of the blessings I have in my life and I am also…


Thank you everyone for supporting me and my dreams.

I hope you enjoy this day and weekend with the ones you love!



It is that time of year again when I host the online Christmas shop.  I call it an open house but really, you shop online. {giggle}  There will only be one of each item available so make sure you make your selections quickly and then check out to ensure YOU get the item(s) you want.  
Your item will arrive gift wrapped and I will also include a gift card so all you have to do is sign your name and hand it to that special person.

Date:  Sunday, December 4th 
Time:  8:00 p.m. EST
Where:  Right here!  I'll post the special link at 8:00 and it will take you to the Christmas Shop on the website.


Favorite Things Party

So….a few weeks ago, I had the time of my life laughing and being silly at a party.  What kind of party you ask?  Well…it was a “Favorite Things” Party.  I was invited by my sister in law Carrie, who lives three hours away…(yeah),  to attend and bring 5 of the same item that I consider a favorite of mine.  Here is the kicker.  The item couldn’t be more than $6.00.  That made it easier on the bank account.  It took me a few minutes to think about it but I FINALLY knew what to take!  I can’t share it with you because then it would ruin it for my friends when I do the party here.  I know.  What a tease.  There were a ton of women at this party and we laughed so much.  That was so good to laugh. ahhhhhh


Here is what I came home with.

1.  3 glass votive holders (I think they came from Pier One)

2. a Vera Bradley zip ID case

3. a Yankee Candle

4.  a Starbucks gift card (I told the lady sitting next to me if I got that, then God approves of my habit….lol.)  thanks!

5.  a cute little bag full of goodies like solar oil for cuticles, a nail file, gum, a finger nail clipper that catches the clippings, hand sanitizer and more.

Doesn’t that rock?  I just had to share this great idea with you for us ladies who want to party without breaking the bank to share. If you have questions about this, just ask me.  Go forth and share your favorites!  Tell me about it if you have a party.  I’d love to hear about it!

Still shopping for Christmas? Good!

Well, half of the year has passed and I've been quiet, haven't I?  I wanted to make sure that I let you know that I'm still here, still making custom jewelry and the.....
2011 online Christmas Open House is coming up!  
 For those of you who don't know what I'm talking about, let me bring you up to speed.  I sell quite a few goodies on a special web page on my website once a year.  It is a first come, first purchase and then the item is gone.  I only make one of each item so when it is purchased, it is gone!  I will tell you more details this week about the date and time.  
I'll have bracelets, earrings, and necklaces available that night.   
Christmas is coming!  Wait, let's celebrate Thanksgiving first!
