Today is my sweet baby girl's birthday. I can't believe it's been nine years since I first looked into her little face and realized I'd been given the greatest gift I would ever receive. It seems like yesterday.

I'm busy in the kitchen today - she is demanding a three layer cake, each layer decorated differently. My goodness. I'm glad she thinks I can do anything, but this is a challenge for sure!!!

Feliz CumpleaƱos, Sugar Baby. I love you more than anything.

Colossal Screw Up



...that's me.

I don't want everyone mad at me. I've had a lot happening (moving out of state SUCKS, in case you didn't know...).

I'm totally on track now, but cleaning up my messes from *before* I loaded the Uhaul.

Hi. Shop is open. My stock is really low right now while I prepare for Xmas. I have a *really* low supply on the GEIST lip balms....what's listed is what's there. I am working on getting the Christmas stuff ready to go, so the shop will be filling up soon. This move really depleted not only my products, but my energy!!! I'm sure everything will be changing pretty much daily as I move stuff around, add, and remove products.

Halloween perfumes will be continued until November 7th.

What do you guys think about extending the Sleepy Hollow perfumes through Xmas?

Hi everyone.

I made it safely to California and will try to open the shop up this weekend. Saturday, to be exact. I'm starting to set up the studio today, so we'll see how unpacking and organizing goes.

Thanks for your patience and I'll see you soon.

Not a very exciting update, I'm afraid. Got all my outstanding orders shipped. I'm asking anyone with order problems to please contact me directly to straighten anything out. I am VERY accommodating, and a resolution can always be reached. I think I feel a complete loss of control right now with my shop closed and just want to make sure everyone is taken care of. 

I'm thinking the shop re-opening will not be November 1st, but a bit sooner. But that's what I'm THINKING - not necessarily what will be reality.

I was battling with my insomnia last night and thinking about how incredible lucky I am to have people who care about me. I've met some truly incredible people through TMTM -- customers, blog readers, fellow soapers and perfumers who I feel have become friends.... These days, that is one incredibly special thing. The internet, with all its faults, at least has the power to make people feel a little less alone. Priceless, right?

Thank you.

It sucks.

It was unexpected.

I will be reopening around November 1st (hopefully a wee bit sooner) and will have lots of surprises for you. I ask everyone to please be patient and understanding and I promise to update this blog every chance I get.

As mentioned on my shop page, all Halloween scents will be continued for an extra couple weeks to give people a chance to get stocked up. It's only fair since I'm closing a couple weeks early. I have some pretty awesome Xmas scents lined up, too, AND my anniversary perfume.

Please stay tuned everyone.

It's so hard to concentrate sometimes when my "guard dogs" are barking their fool heads off all day. They sit here and wait for someone..... ANYONE..... to walk by so they can show them who's boss.

Notice how they're both looking in different directions. It's like they said to each other, "Okay, you take THIS part of the street and I'll take THAT part of the street"


Guess what I got?? BLACK oval lip balm tubes. Ohhh yeeeeaaaahh........ All the Xmas packaging is going to be black. I'm SO excited!!!!

Okay, back to work...

Sorry for belated responses... life has been hectic (to say the least).

Thank you everyone for birthday wishes. I needed them so much and you all made me feel very, very special.

Rock on.

I've not been able to get candles in the shop yet. I've got all the supplies, but NO TIME!!!! ARGH!!! I'm working diligently, though... soon! I've had other people tell me lately they've been putting my oils on light bulbs and such. How awesome is that??

Stay tuned -- I SWEAR they're coming!!!

Everyone cross your fingers I make it to 3000 sales today - that would be the best birthday present EVER!!!

I hope you all are having a fantastic day!!!!
