I’m excited to announce that I have introduced a new product into my soap shop!
Drum roll please…
Chapstick! I have discovered that it’s so much fun to make, and I plan on making much more in the future.
I have also finished a batch of “Beach Bum” soap and listed it in my shop. I also just finished a new scarf and am working on a hat…so yep, I’ve been busy and will hopefully have even more goodies available for sale soon!
I taught my class on knitting today and it went really well! I taught the basics, casting on, the knit stitch and casting off. I also brought my FINISHED (wahoo!) sampler afghan to show off. I’ll hopefully get a picture of it tomorrow. I’m excited to be working on something for my shop now…because it’s been awhile since I made something to sell. It’s a striped knitted scarf in orange and green…it looks very Summery and reminds me of tropical fruit. I’m also thinking of making some kind of polymer clay button or pin to go with it.
In other news, my exercising is going okay though I still haven’t lost pounds, I am starting to lose inches so I’m happy. We went and visited with my in-laws yesterday and stopped in at the thrift store in their town…and wouldn’t you know it I found the one thing I’ve been searching for for months…an exercise bike! It’s an older style one that doesn’t take up much room (some of the newer ones are a bit bulky) and it was only 5 dollars! However, after getting it home I noticed that it’s broken…but I’m hoping to be able to get it fixed so I can use it.
Other than that, things are pretty normal…just excited for Valentine’s Day because it’s been a LONG time since I’ve been on a date with my hubby!
