Ahhhh....Christmas Memories

So today I was thinking back to my childhood years, Christmas time to be exact. A few things that I enjoyed being around, that my mom brought out every year is a wind up Santa that played music. I loved this thing .

As a child I would pick at the little sack that Santa was carrying. It had a small wrapped foiled present in his tulle looking sack...I thought there was a real present inside. Eventually , I teared a hole in it trying to get in it. Now I know what little kids are thinking when they "destroy" our things. Now I see that sometimes are kids aren't intentionally being destructive.

I found my Santa today on Ebay, and will purchase him. I cant wait to bring him back home.

Another item I am looking for is the Plastic Church that my mom always was proud to display every year. I loved this this thing too, I actually thought there could be people in it when she lit it. It was musical too and I plan to find one and have it out for this year.

Another 2 Birthdays Under my Belt...

Yesterday we threw Olivia's 2nd birthday and Emma's 7th birthday together. We had 37 family members come, it was a great party. The Night before I stayed up until 2 am making 2 birthday cakes, 2 mini birthday cakes (one for my Aunt nad one for my hubby mike), and 24 cupcakes. They turned out fantastic..I must say I am very proud of myself. It was the first time making birthday cakes. Emma was feeling under the weather and missed most of her birthday, poor thing. She was up for presents and cake. They both recieved so many beautiful clothes and toys. Today is Olivia's real birthday..We have no plans realy. It is a holiday today, nothing is open , and it is super gloomy outside. It is raining all day today, :(

School starts up again Wednesday, so I will be getting ready for that . It will be somewhat quiet again but I will still have the 2 youngest at home and my neice Hanna.

A Surprising Call

I received a phone call early evening of a best friend of mine, Judy,whom I haven't seen or spoken in years. I was thrilled to hear from her and so relieved that she found me. I tried a few times to find her . She was unlisted and not registered in Facebook (yes, I tried Facebook)

Anyway, we talked for about a half hour and I found out she is getting married and actually lives like minutes from me. We are practically neighbours! Her finance sounds very nice and we are inviting them over sometime next week. I am very happy to have reconnected with her!

The Big 40!

Happy Birthday to my husband Mike who turn 40 today! Hes not so excited about this milestone, but he looks yummy good nontheless!

I havent seen hime this morning, he snuck out of bed early to head to work. He had a week off, and during that time we headed to Fargo, North Dakota for 3 days of shopping bliss. Yes, Fargo...It is 2.5 -3 hours away from Winnipeg and they have Target. I love Target!

We also put in our grass during that time too! We have a yard!!! Yeah! We are working on the fence details now, and perhaps get a deck built. The playhouse that I so dream of for the kids, is sort of on hold. I did buy a plan at Lowes when we were in Fargo. I may have it built this year but not sure. It is 4 feet deep, 8 feet wide and 8 feet tall. It is super cute!

Anyway...Happy Birthday to the greatest, cutest daddy and hubby. XOXO

Making Bars and and Enjoying the Sun

Ok, so I had a busy weekend. Sunday, we all went to my husband's Aunty Betty's cottage in Petersfield. It is a year round home that is not your typical cottage. Very modern and beautiful. Gorgeous lakefront, glorious views. It was a warm sunny day and we had so much fun. The kids didn't want to leave. They were playing in the sand from 2pm until we left which was about 8:30 pm. Long time!!

I also made some whipped lemon bars this past weekend. They are tdf. I

don't know if I will be selling them on etsy, but they may appear during my shows this fall. I have been adding my bar shapes again, but nothing compares to my loaves . Over the years, my loaves always out sell my bars. People just like the idea of hand cut bar maybe?? I would hand cut right in front of them, but over time I switched to displaying on cake plates so people can see and smell, then have everything prepackaged. It got too busy to do the cutting in front and then packaging.

I have been recently including in my orders as a thank you, the chocolate mint parfait bars. It kind of reminds me when you go to a restaurant, you get a mint as a "thank you"..or when you go to a nice hotel ,they put a chocolate on your pillow as a thank you...

Friday, August 8, 2008


Well, its Friday, yippie! This weekend I plan to figure out which craft shows Ill be in. I know Ill be in the juried Scattered Seeds Show in October, I plan on being in The Festival of Lights Show and waiting to hear if I'm in another big show. I think Ive figured out what soaps will be in this Christmas. I am going to choose 8 -10 scents in the loaves. So far I am certain that pumpkin souffle,mistletoe kisses, chocolate chip cookie dough will be in.

For the Popsicles, I choose 3 different ones.

This year decided to do a Christmas sampler. Those samplers bags always sell out. They are cute and reasonably priced.
The photo that is posted here, is a custom order . This "shoe" soap was custom made for a lady who had a tea room/gift shop in the States. So cute, it smelled glorious. It turned out so darn cute I had to share.

Playhouse crazy

So all I have been thinking of besides soaps is a playhouse. I have been wanting one for my kids for a long time now. Mind you , I have a Step 2 Sweetheart playhouse ,but Im talking about a outdoor wooden outdoor one with a porch. A new one would cost in the thousands.

I have also been searching for used ones , maybe something that has good bones that I can turn into a dream playhouse. I recently came across this playhouse that I posted here in the classifieds, that I have been thinking about. I feel it has good bones, it is structurely sound. It is an ugly duckling of playhouses. I think it has great potential. I also have the kidkraft kitchen that I also posted,I was planning to move that in . My husband could have his den back!
I have begun my sketches on this. Gingerbread trim, porch pickets, a door, window grilles, yikes! Its a looker! Asking amount is $250 which I feel is still too much to ask, but I could talk him down. I have 2 big concerns:

1- How the hell would I get it from his yard to mine? 8 people and a flatbed truck I do not have.

2- It is u-g-l-y..What would the neighbours think! I have a newly constructed home, the yard is a mess because we are landscaping ect... If I plopped this puppy in the yard for all to see ,they would have a heart attack. What they wouldnt know is I would be working on it...

What do you think I should do??? Consider it or leave it??
