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.
