Well July has come and gone.  I don't know what has happened to this month but in a blink of an eye it has just passed me by!  I've been working on some knitting that I like to do from time to time and got to thinking about making wash clothes to go in my Etsy shop so I picked up some 100% cotton yarn and began knitting some.
 Here was the blue one above midway through (see I end up knitting when I should be working)  That is my desk at home and I will end up knitting and going back and forth with Etsy shop work or book work whichever I feel like doing!  I believe the knitting has been winning lately.  I tend to knit when I just want to stop thinking.  Do you ever get that way?  Need mindless entertainment and these wash clothes are perfect for that!
Not sure when I will introduce them in the shop yet maybe by end of August for sure.

I'm ordering this great mold from Brambleberry to make some great eyeball soaps for Halloween.  I'm going to have to make some vampire eyes with Breaking Dawn coming out woo hoo! Just need to find the right colors to use.  Anyway that is all I have for now.  I need to finish up my order with Brambleberry so I can get it all in time.

Hope everyone had a great 4th of July :)

We had a great time 4th of July!  We took our daughter and headed out on the golf cart around our neighborhood to watch the many different firework displays that various neighbors were having.  It was a blast!  Forgive the pun LOL :)

Our daughter had a wonderful time with the other children and between sparklers and the excitement of these large bursts of beautiful color we didn't even realize how long we had been out that night.

It's funny, on a side note, I've been giving a lot of thought on new scents for the upcoming seasons and even thinking about the cool soaps that I can create for Halloween as well.  I have so many ideas that I've had to start a list of scents / soaps I want to offer for autumn!  (If you have any that you particularly like I would love to hear your ideas!)

Check out a new soap that Steve came up with for men called "Hugo". 

 Well I really need to get to the grocery store now.  I've been putting it off long enough lol.  Steve and Anna are in Chicago and Steve will be back tomorrow morning.  Anna is staying with the grandparents for 3 weeks!  I have no idea how I'm going to handle having her gone so long.  Longest she has been away from us but she doesn't get to see them much so it is good for her and she wants to spend some time with them. :)  That said I don't even know what I'm going to eat for supper, it is so hard to cook for one.  

Hope you all have a wonderful night!  Ta Ta til later :)
