Happy Faces.......

Here is a photo I took of some sunflowers. My friend Michelle has a garden every year and Sunflowers are a staple. A few years ago she gave me a lovely bouquet as I was leaving her house. I took pictures so I could remember how beautiful they were. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!

In honor of my new blog, I will be holding a contest beginning today, June 14, 2009 until June 30, 2009. So get those fingers pumping and post a comment about your most favorite relaxation technique.

To unwind do you: Have a glass of wine, take a walk, take a long soak in the tub or something else?

At the end of the contest, I will use the famed custom number generator to pick a winner. The prize will be a handmade soap in the fragrance of your choice!

Good Luck!


I took this a few years ago in my backyard. :)

I must confess that blogging intimidates me. I am not a writer and I find it difficult to convey thoughts to people I can't see. However, I really want to blog about what I do and people I know and just fun things in general.

For starters, I am a soap maker and handmade soap has been my passion for over 8 years. In addition, I like to 'experiment' with other crafts. Right now that other craft is taking pictures. But nothing else has captured my creative ability like soap making. Yet! This leaves me to live through others and their handmade creativity and secretly wishing I had their talent!

I am a mother to a 20 year old son, a wife of 23 years and I live in Charleston, S.C. along with two fur kids, Lucy & Ringo.

Nothing could be finer!
