Good Morning... and Happy Belated New Year!

You know when I retired I had it in my head I would post at least once a week… nope hasn’t happened. The plan was to make a card a day… nope hasn’t happened. LOL.
I have however made a few Christmas cards as you can see:

I made about 20 others I figured nobody would really want to see all of them, not only that it would take to long to post them.

Now I must confess, I didn’t get these sent out this past year. But, look at the bright side. I am ready for Christmas 2013!

The problem is I discovered Pinterest  . It's the one site I should avoid. It's a great site, it's just that every time I tell myself it will be just a "couple of minutes" next thing I know a hour has flown by sometimes two maybe even three! It gets me hopping to so many fun and informing websites and blogs…. It’s crazy. I LOVE that site.
Who would have thought one website could opened my eyes to exploring so many other hobbies.  Such as making my own soap.

I have made bath soap, liquid hand soap and laundry detergent.

This soap is made with goats milk and is super smooth, I have made some unscented oatmeal for my grandson Levi. He has such sensitive skin and this soap works great. His skin is so much softer and he says " it isn't all itchy".

It even has me cooking more (made meat loaf for the first time), and making my own
Cooking Extracts:

 
This Vanilla Extract won't be ready for use until February. It was made with Vodka, I guess other types of extracts are made with rum or even whiskey. If this turns out to be good I am going to try my hand at making orange, lemon and a mint extract. - I'll let you know.

I've even found helpful cleaning tips too, my DH used to say I was domestically challenge, but now thanks to Pinterest I am a Domestic GODDESS, so much so he gave me an apron for Christmas LOL he thinks he is so funny…

Well, I need to get busy doing something...
