Feeling Lucky!

Hello hello and welcome to Friday the 13th..I have always thought of today as a lucky day.  You never know what is going to happen.  I believe if we put positive energy out there we can't go wrong.

On a happy note, this last week was my birthday.  What a fun and blessed day we had. Since the days seem to fly by quicker than ever, I thought I would check in with ya all and share a little bit more about my daily life. 

On June 20 & 21 our small town is going to have an ArtWalk.  It is such a special time.  Local artists are featured in the downtown businesses.  Some give demonstrations and are available to discuss their work.  For the past few years I have always been an artist that was featured in someone else's shop/store front.  But this year, I am hosting my very own Artist!  How exciting is that? And boy did I get lucky, Evelyn, the Artist that I am featuring is WonDerFul, Superb and Oh so very talented.  She has graciously allowed me to take photos of her work to share with you all. 

I can't decide which one is my favorite, they are all so beautiful and full of color, life and energy.
 The pinks and oranges really make this photo pop, what do you think?
 I can't say enough about the painting itself..ohh laaa laaa and the red frame..why it just screams lovely!

June is here!! Woohooo!

Hello folks!

I am so excited!  Last night, I was restless..tossed and turned..couldn't sleep.  Finally got up at 3:00 a.m. to see what time it was..yes..I am addicted to the clock..to checking the time.  I don't know why but it sure is a fixation of mine.  Where was I??  Oh yes, I remember. I was talking about June and how exciting this month is going to be.  My store front is 8 months old..can you all believe that?  So many new changes, NEW products, different soaps, a few favorites and a re-decorated craft studio.

We are getting ready for the Rodeo to hit our small town on June 17-20.  To celebrate I decided to whip up new horse/cowboy themed soaps.  It was so much fun to create these and embed the little rubber duckies into the soap.   

 I have had many requests for body sprays.  New fragrances have made their way into sprays.  My ultimate favorite is the Pure Seduction, I have one bottle left in the shop..must add that to my order list.  What is your favorite body spray fragrance?
 With graduations in May and June, I decided to whip up these little "Cheers" soapies..they are soo darn cute!  The Island Margarita shot glass has Sea Salt embedded on the top...almost drinkable I tell ya. 
 Of course, nothing says summer quite like flip flops..the newest flop soaps are flip flopping all over town.  What color combinations would you like to see? 
 Last but certainly not least, Jolly Rancher patriotic soaps.  Nothing says summer quite like fresh watermelon, grilling and Patriotic goodies. 
All of these goodies can be purchased here or you can stop in at 511 Main Street Suite #1, Alamosa CO if you are ever in my neck of the woods.  I love meeting new people..don't be shy come on in!

Stay tuned for new Craft Studio pictures..Can't wait to share them with ya.
