What's New

A glimpse at what will be stocking in the near future...

First, I have added three new categories to the site.

I eliminated the "Yogi Organic Teas" category and replaced it with "For the Home". In that category you will find three sub-categories of "In the Pantry", "Home Fragrances", and "Natural Cleaning Products". I've moved the Yogi Teas I had left into "In the Pantry" but will also be filling it with some food mixes. If you have been to Holiday Lane then you might have seen the cocoa mixes I have for sale. I will also be including those on my site, in more versions. I am thinking of a PB Cup type right now and others.

I also have been making wax tarts.

I have several fragrances available for them, 56 I believe.

Right now I am thinking more and more about my Black Friday stocking than anything. I have so many ideas running through my head for it, I just need to re-order lot's of supplies inorder to finish them. Hopefully on the first I can do that. I'm thinking of more children's book & soap sets, bath salts, bath scrub sets, holiday themed soaps, and more.

Right now though it is very hot in my house. The AC is broken, and since we live in GA it is still 80* even thought it's almost November! Hopefully we either get the AC fixed or it starts to cool down. This temperature has been making me feel very lazy.

Well, I am working on a small project for a charity collab on Holiday Lane I better get back to that.

Long overdue for an update...

I started this blog last spring and originally intended to update frequently. As you can tell, that didn't happen! Life has certainly gotten busy for us. Since I last wrote, we have had a few exciting things happen. First, our second child was born July 3. His name is Nathan, and is currently almost 4 months old. He is a happy and snuggly baby, who likes to keep mommy busy and away from her work! ;-)

Secondly, we found out that we will be moving next year. Chris is pulling orders to go to a new unit at Ft. Leavenworth, KS. It will be fun. We used to live at Ft. Leonard Wood when we first got married, which is only a few hours away from Leavenworth. We have missed Ft. Wood ever since we left, so perhaps this will make us feel more at home. Plus, Chris's parents will only be a couple of hours away in IA. It will be nice to have family close by for a change! :-)

With the holiday season approaching fast, I have been working hard(or trying to rather) at making some new soaps and other goodies. Natural Madison has alos joined a new congo on Hyena Cart, Holiday Lane. There are about 40 or so vendors(the biggest congo to date on HC!) that are selling holiday and gift themed items. So far it has been a popular success!

Our next stocking is to be Nov. 4th at noon. It will be a small stocking as I am trying to put a lot of things aside for our BiG Black Friday sale. I will update more on that soon.

Anywho...just a small update after a looooong hiatus. I promise to update more often, now that I have figured out how to change the text back to English, and have a bit more time to devote to this blog. :-)
