I promised I wouldn’t post here, but…. My other site is lagging!

So, I’ve decided to take the plunge and sell on Amazon. Hopefully my soap will get more attention in such a public venue! So, I have to barcode everything! These I did last week, but needed to decode them and ready to print. Here we go!

Activated Charcoal Homemade Soap, Unscented
Activated Charcoal Homemade Soap, Tea Tree Oil
Activated Charcoal Homemade Soap, Lavender Essential Oil
Activated Charcoal Homemade Soap, Musk (for Men)
Baby Cold Process Handmade Soap, PALM FREE Soap, TITANIUM Dioxide Free Soap, Natural Soap, Unscented Soap

As you can see, I have alot of work cut out for myself! I have too many kinds of soap! eBay for most of them, and then keep the good sellers on Amazon! Yay! Etsy gets hectic at times, I’m sure this will be interesting. Wish me luck!

More diapers for charity!

After completing all my school work, I worked hard this week sewing. I sewed up 50 more diapers for charity. Last week was less. I’ll have to look at pics before I have a running total.

Anyways, they start off like this after the first round of sewing.

Diapers before turning

Then I have to trim, turn and Topstitch the babies! After that and the pins, ribbons and cards, they look like this!

20 large diapers
30 mini diapers

And of course there were stragglers that didn’t end up in the box!!! Oops!!

6 mini diapers

Away they go to the post office!

56 diapers + 54 last week = 110 so far!

So, I’ve been sewing my brains out when I’m not studying! I nearly have my blanket done on the top, 22 diapers and prepping fabric for melody’s blanket. I have so much yet to do!

22 Preemie diapers (2 per pack)
Blanket for my bed (watch out Chad!)
Material for Mels blanket, waiting on some more..

And that’s what I’ve done for now. Going to prep for more diapers and read my book! Love you guys!

My blanket

Here’s some progress on my blanket! I sewed 3 more rows to it and it’s looking fabulous! It covers about a third of the bed now! Much more fabric to buy for it!


I had to seam rip soooo many times tonight, it wasn’t funny! Anyways, mr man made me stop sewing at midnight, so I got pretty far!
