The Shop is Full!

I've added the new lip balms, along with solid scents for Odditoria. The solid scents are meant to either be worn alone or layered with *any* of the Odditoria fragrances to add depth. They smell SO good on their own, too!

New Lip Balms

I will be adding 5 new lip balms to the shop today - 2 new Harlots and the first ever Odditoria balms.


Sweet Basil and Peppermint
Cherry Licorice
and Vanilla Clove (my favorite)


Pomegranate Rose, which I have cleverly named Rosey Pom (well, *I* think I'm clever)
and Pear Tart

I have many more ideas, but Halloween is coming and you KNOW how excited I get over that. This year there will be lots of new additions!

Have a great day, everyone!

Ding Dong the Hearse is Dead..........

Well he's not DEAD necessarily........, It was such a big to-do just to get it home - conflicting schedules with the funeral home mostly. When I was finally able to go get it, it wouldn't start. Battery was dead. They tried and tried to jump it, but to no avail. Alas, I had to wait another day. Bright and early the next morning, I show up and see there's a brand new battery! And it STILL won't start!!!!! *sigh* I had a mechanic friend come out and he is pretty sure it's the fuel pump. Not too big of a deal. I bought the car anyway. After all, I had already named him, so I *could not* leave him sitting there. Also, I knew going in that unless I was ready to spend 50k on a new coach, there were going to be problems. I have enough love for this car to see me through the hard times.

So in 103 degree weather, I wait for the tow truck to take my baby home. I have to tell you, seeing the looks on people's faces at this big ol' coach on a lift made me laugh all the way home.

Poor baby was sooooo dirty when I arrived:

 Up up up!!!

Seriously, that is one bad ass windshield. I love how huge it is:

So fresh and so clean. (grin). Home and cleaned up. He looks SO much better!

And Mattie is all ready for bye bye!

The funeral home felt really bad about the car not running and knocked enough  money off that I can get the fuel pump fixed! Yay!!!

My mechanic is coming over tomorrow to drop the gas tank and hopefully fix it, so there's a really good chance Romero will be on the road tomorrow (after new tires, of course). Wish me luck! And I want to thank everyone who helped me make my dream a reality. I am totally and completely in love with my car! Thank you!!!!

Love, Lysa

Moving, formulating, ink madness, and putting the "fun" back in funeral.

Hi guys! Soooo much happening in my life right now, which is the reason I've been inactive on my blog. Facebook is so much easier for me, partly because I have an app on my phone, so it's totally mobile. But I promise I will try to be more active blogging. :-)

Time has run out on my current living situation. When I moved back to California (ack), I moved into my uncle's house. He currently lives in New York and we decided it would be a good deal for both of us - he has someone to watch the house, and I have someplace to live. Unfortunately, my run here is done, so I will be moving YET AGAIN. This mobile lifestyle is *not* for me. I need a good couple years of not hauling my stuff around. That would be lovely, thank you.  At least this time I'm not moving to another state, merely across town. And the move will be much more relaxed. Although I must be physically out of the house by the end of the month, I've got an additional month to clear out my belongings, and do the final cleaning. That is MUCH better for me. Most importantly, it means I don't have to close my shop while it's going on. I will be tired, but it's definitely do-able.

I've begun formulating for Halloween. I know it seems early, but I have much work ahead of me. I will be having the usual contest to name the perfumes. Stay tuned.

I've also been on a tattooing rampage. I'm sure there is some psychology behind that, but we won't go into it. :-) Mostly, it's just my collecting on favors owed by my tattoo artist friends. I've started the sleeve on my right arm, which is going to be all toys. So far I have a kewpie doll, a rabbit jack in the box, and tomorrow I'm getting a wind-up car - a hearse to be exact.

And speaking of funeral vehicles - I have FINALLY, after *25 years* found my dream hearse. I'm so excited, I'm literally beside myself. He's white right now, but will be painted as soon as I get past all the legal stuff.... change of title, registration, emissions testing, etc. I will probably have to have a MAJOR sale in the shop to cover all this stuff. Let me tell ya, it's not going to be cheap. But he is so worth it. Should I decide to have a sale, I will most definitely post it here. So you wanna see my new baby?

 I pick him up on the 20th. Please, please let these 9 days pass quickly.

Have a great remainder of the weekend everyone!!!
