handmade on my mind

so i decided if I don't make any sales after the march children's showcase on etsy I am going to make the switch over to shophandmade. I really think I might have a better chance of being successful over there...

or venaga, as the bottle label in my parent's house says.

I was skeptical at first as to the virtues of this humble household substance, but it does a mighty fine job of getting rid of some of the most hideous odors. For example, no amount of washing seemed to get the old formula smell out of the bottle I left sitting out overnight...but a swish with vinegar solution and a quick rinse and BAM! Rotten milk odor obliterated! It also gets Noelle's toys squeaky clean, and that's great since EVERYTHING is a potential chew toy these days. It even breaks down the most powerful of odors - KIMCHI.
And at 89 cents a bottle, it is the most cost-effective natural solution out there....LOVE IT!

Early Valentine - Bear with Me

Amidst all the etsy craziness, I have somehow managed to fall head over heels in love again with my husband and sweet babe. It is the little things...how my husband wisely ignores the pile of tangled yarn that is quickly taking over the apt., how my daughter coos and giggles as I force hat after hat onto her head and wave toys at her to get the best shot....how hard my husband works without complaining, the confident look N gives me as we "walk" across the room, how soundly she sleeps at night. I am one lucky gal. Who needs chocolate and diamonds...I've got it all.
