Whirlwind January

12409-121So, since I’ve last posted, I’ve rented the tents, chairs, tables, tablecloths, chafing dishes (quite honestly I didn’t even know what they were) and a cotton candy machine for my kids graduation.  Whew!  I never knew having the kids graduate would be equivilent to planning a wedding.  Now, since I’m doing a Dr. Suess “Oh, The Places You’ll Go” theme, I’m on the hunt for affordable decorations and planning a menu for 100 people.  I’m sure I’ll get there ~ just step by step (that’s what I have to keep reminding myself).

I’m adding items every day to my website and etsy and I’m really excited about the items I’ve been listing.  I think they truly are creations from my heart.  Here’s a little sneak peek. . . .

Good wishes to all ~ Wendy

I’m baaaaaack. . . .

Finally checking back in as I was without a computer for about a week.  My hard drive crashed. . . whatever that means.  Fortunately, my husband and sons being quite the talented computer people were able to save almost everything!  YEAH! 

I’ve been adding products furiously to my website, http://BerryLane.com and also my one etsy store at http://CottageBubbles.etsy.com.  (Sorry for the shameless plug!)  I’ve yet to get to flickr or my other etsy store, but this choochoo’s going to keep on going!

Here’s a couple of pics showing what I’ve been working on.  Lots and lots of soap.  I’m having so much fun with the little cakes, but thought I should make some truly utilitarian ones also.  I love these soaps so much – the base I’m working with has no chemicals or drying agents like sls.  The roses soap is what I’m giving away with every purchase from my website for the month of October.  Have a great weekend and I’ll talk to you soon – Wendy

My Christmas Gifts

Allright, you guessed right – it is a soap.  But not just any soap ~ it’s these beautiful bundt cake soaps.  Although I only have my honey almond done yet, I think I’m going to add a spice cake, strawberry cake, chocolate (of course) and maybe more.  I’ve packaged these bundt cakes in a true bakery box with some shredded papers and will tie them with seam binding and probably a pretty sticker.  This batch turned out so fragrant that I’m adding one cut into fours on a vintage saucer in my bathroom. 

What do you think?
