Kind of a glum looking morning out today, but then it IS January. My soap batch is looking good. It has a couple of oily spots where the color is. I think I added the soap to the colored oil too soon - it hadn't traced. That will soak in, so it's no problem. I only have 3 buckets of measured oils left so soon I am going to have to begin measuring oils - not a fun job which is why I do a lot of batches at once.

Have had absolutely no Ebay sales since Christmas. I was toying with the idea of listing on Etsy, but I can't seem to warm up to Etsy. Besides, during our rush I kept looking forward to having time to re-stock so that I'm not cut short next year. Plus, we have two shows in April. I think I have enough to keep me busy.
Word of the day:
Third Sunday in Ordinary Time
Week of Prayer for Christian Unity 24 January
Today the Church celebrates : St. Francis of Sales, Bishop and Doctor of the Church (+ 1622) - Memorial
Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Luke 1:1-4.4:14-21.

Since many have undertaken to compile a narrative of the events that have been fulfilled among us, just as those who were eyewitnesses from the beginning and ministers of the word have handed them down to us, I too have decided, after investigating everything accurately anew, to write it down in an orderly sequence for you, most excellent Theophilus, so that you may realize the certainty of the teachings you have received. Jesus returned to Galilee in the power of the Spirit, and news of him spread throughout the whole region. He taught in their synagogues and was praised by all. He came to Nazareth, where he had grown up, and went according to his custom into the synagogue on the sabbath day. He stood up to read and was handed a scroll of the prophet Isaiah. He unrolled the scroll and found the passage where it was written: The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has anointed me to bring glad tidings to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim liberty to captives and recovery of sight to the blind, to let the oppressed go free, and to proclaim a year acceptable to the Lord." Rolling up the scroll, he handed it back to the attendant and sat down, and the eyes of all in the synagogue looked intently at him. He said to them, "Today this scripture passage is fulfilled in your hearing."

Sorry about your ebay sales! I haven't bought on ebay since they went to strictly paypal as i always purchased with moneyorders. I don't feel safe linking paypal with my bankaccount or credit card......but we are looking into maybe a rechargeable credit card of some sort except all the ones i find charge a fee......??

You know i had a brainstorm the other day......ah oh......i know what your thinking.....LOL! And i asked my hubby me question and he didn't know so i ofcourse thought to ask you! :)

You sell on Ebay and Craft Shows but you also sell of a website too right??? Well i was wondering how do you do that??? Did you create your own ? and do you have to have some kind of liscence or permission or something to do that??How do people find your site?? I think setting up and selling my crafts off a website sounds like something i'd like to do. But i have no idea where to start . Can you help me my crafty guru??? JInx!
