I made a batch of Chai Tea candles yesterday and a batch of Chai Tea soap today. My cupcakes turned out a little lopsided, except for one of them.  I hope the swirl turns out.  I used cocoa as the darker color and some unscented batter with titanium dioxide in it.  I WILL not cut it until Sunday.  I WILL not cut it until Sunday.

I listed some new items on Artfire.  This soap is called Wash Day.  It smells to me like Mondays when I was a kid and the clothes dried on the line in the warm sunshine.  It has a a "clean cotton" kind of scent to it.



I just paid for our ad in the upcoming issue of Country Sampler so the girls and I need to get on the stick and start working on the Christmas stockings!!


These are some face cloths I have been making.  I hate to just sit and do nothing so when I'm riding in the car on a long trip or chatting at the table over coffee, I stitch these up.



Word of the day:
Friday of the Eleventh week in Ordinary Time
Saint(s) of the day : St. Herve, Abbot, (6th century)
Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Matthew 6:19-23.

Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and decay destroy, and thieves break in and steal.
But store up treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor decay destroys, nor thieves break in and steal.
For where your treasure is, there also will your heart be.
The lamp of the body is the eye. If your eye is sound, your whole body will be filled with light;
but if your eye is bad, your whole body will be in darkness. And if the light in you is darkness, how great will the darkness be.

Did I hear someone say Chai? Are there any in tart form? I really don't need anymore soaps or tarts or anything, but you've been waving some pretty nice things in front of me lately... Maybe one small order wouldn't hurt... LOL

Deb, you are so funny. A true addict. LOL! I haven't made tarts yet. I'm testing candles right now and I will probably have to wick them up a bit. I did some cider mill candles too, and those will need to be wicked up. The melt pool is just too small.
