What is Soul Lotion?????

I had a very bizarre dream a few years ago about giving a presentation in college. In the middle of my presentation, the walls of the classroom disappeared and we were all standing on a beach. There were flashes of light in the sky and then a large gathering of people appeared. They were walking toward me with their arms out, chanting..."soul lotion, soul lotion...gotta get me some, soul lotion, soul lotion". And then, I was awake. And I thought to myself.."what the HELL is soul lotion!?!?"(at this point you are all probably thinking that I am absolutely out of my mind...but, hey, we all have weird dreams, right!!)
Then it occured to me that every now and then, when we are feeling tired, stale and dried out, overstressed, or just want to lay down and go to sleep for a week or two, we just need to rehydrate our souls. For me, that means reading a really good book, listening to some fantastic music, or reflecting on all the things in my life that make me feel happy.
So, that, in a sense, is what soul lotion is (I guess....I mean, maybe I AM just crazy!!) Anyway, I thought I'd share some thoughts, some music, some of my photography, and some of my soul lotion. Relax and enjoy.

Happy Holidays

Well, I can't believe how quickly the holidays have snuck upon us!!! I wanted to share a few fun holiday crafts, but have simply not had the time! However, I have been busy making some fun holiday gifts for my shop including some unique gift tags. These tags have been tea/coffe stained (you can even get a faint scent of Earl Grey and hazelnut) and stamped with cool holiday stamps. I will also be posting some vintage image gift tags as well. I am hoping to have time to include in my next post a tutorial so you can make some of your own tea-stained tags. So make sure to check back. I hope you are all having fun preparing for the holidays.

My Favorite Season

My favorite time of year is approaching and I have been busy working on some fun fall decor. I will be listing lots of owls as well as some decorative blocks for Halloween and Thanksgiving. I hope you all enjoy this most beautiful of seasons, especially you northerners who are lucky enough to experience the crisp autum nights and the smell of fresh fallen leaves. Pictured to the left is "Owlexandria". She alreay has a home, but she has many more friends that will need homes as well. So visit my shop if you would like to see all of my new fun items. Have a fabulous Fall season!

New Beginnings

Well, it has been quite some time since I last wrote. I have been extremely busy working on new designs for my photography business as well as opening my Etsy gift shop! I am so excited to finally be able to have an outlet for my creative energy. I plan on designing lots of new items for my store and I also plan to offer some freebies for photographers, digital scrapbookers, and paper crafters....so be sure to check back often.
Items that I am working on include glass tile pendants, party supplies, banners and garland, more nursery decor and some really unique wall clocks. I am also designing digital paper packs and other design elements, some of which I will offer for free right here.
I will also be sharing some crafting tips and ideas as well as some fun stuff to do with the kids. So I hope you come back and join in on the fun. And please feel free to comment or offer your own ideas or suggestions.
Have a great night.
