I'm having a sale in my eBay store. 10% off almost everything. You can some great products at a good price plus free shipping if you live in the USA and your order totals $35 or more. I send great free samples with each purchase to boot. I am an eBay Power Seller with 100% feedback so you know you'll be satisfied!
At left, is one of the great lip balms I carry. In addition to Mama Coco's, I also carry Ganache for Lips, Rosebud Salve, Perfumeria Gal, Agatha Ruiz, Get Fresh Spa, Herbacin lotion, Egyptian Magic healing creme, Grandpa's Pine Tar Soap, and more.
If you place an order this weekend, mention that you saw this blurb on my blog when you pay and I will put in something special with your order.
I'm going to try to provide a product review on a weekly basis. These will probably be products that I sell. Shameless promotion? Yes. Hey - I need money to build up my fabric stash and buy cupcake liners.
Chances are if you buy any cosmetics, you've heard of Rosebud Salve or have actually tried it. It is a cult product - mentioned in dozens of beauty magazines every year. Rosebud Perfume Company does no self promotion - they don't need to. The product speaks for itself. It has been around for over 100 years and is still in the family of the family's founder, Dr. G.F. Smith.
I started the lip balm end of my business selling Rosebud Salve and was astounded at the interest in the product, especially from my international customers.
When I started out, Aidan was just a baby. Linda at Rosebud would send me some of their dinged tins so I could use it on his bottom to prevent diaper rash. And it certainly did - he never had one.
I am never without a tin of Rosebud Salve and use it daily on my lips, elbows and any other dry spot. I use it to remove eye makeup and on my cuticles. I love it so much that with the help of Rosebud Perfume, I composed an article for the Top Uses for Rosebud Salve.
Rosebud Perfume also has Strawberry Lip Balm, Mentholated Salve (great for those winter months), and Rosebud Minted (currently available at Sephora). Interested? Try one out for only $5.00 in the Sassy Priscilla eBay Store. As always, free USA shipping for orders over $35 and complimentary deluxe samples.
So this isn't the best picture but I was having a heck of a time getting a good shot. I saw a great way to fold fabric to make more space on the Happy Zombie blog and spent a few hours rearranging my fabric stash.
Basically, you take a quilting ruler (mine is 6" wide) and fold the fabric over it. I'd take pictures bu t Zombie's pics are really great.
Though it still looks a little messy-neat, it is pretty organized for me. The top two rows have a lot of my fabric (bins and bins in the basement store more...). I have fabric squares on the second shelf to the right.
The third shelf contains my projects. They are bagged up with all the necessary fabrics and ready to go.
The 4th shelf holds my patterns. Most of them are neatly organized in a Silver Comic Book sleeve with acid free boards. I bought mine from an eBay seller--100 of each for about $17.00 shipped. They are a great way to store patterns.
The bottom shelf (not shown) hold my serger, sewing machine and thread.
I try to keep my blog light but this story has me steamed. I'll try to balance out my anger by the fun picture I took last weekend.
You know how annoying it is when you are at the store or at work and someone is clearly ill and should stay home? That person feels some sort of obligation to be out and is clearly only thinking of their needs and not that they could be infecting many others. Andrew Speaker, the TB patient in the news recently for traveling the world with a rare, drug-resistant form of TB, is that annoying person X 1000.
I cannot fathom how this guy, who was told by several health officials not to travel, saw fit to traverse across Europe on his wedding and honeymoon and then find a way to SNEAK back into the US after being busted in Europe. Isolation is not enough to punish this guy. Hopefully, when his health returns, he will face some serious charges for his willful neglect of other human life. Even more hopeful is that he didn't infect anyone during his travels or his flights.
