Cute Finds

Yesterday morning while I was waiting for my tea to steep and getting really annoyed at my new kitchen timer which has decided to stop working I was reading through my blogroll and stumbled upon this really cool gift guide: The Modish Holiday Gift Guide. It's this really cool indie shopping guide, definitely something I will be checking out while doing my holiday shopping this season!

So Saturday night while I was suffering from an odd case of insomnia I was fumbling around Etsy and bought the cutest pattern for a stuffed elephant. It's an awesome deal, it was $7.99 and she sends you a pdf of the pattern right away. I can't wait to start making it!

In addition to finding that super cute pattern I also was able to make a new product...a Lavender Salt Soak. It turned out really well...I used a couple different types of salts, lavender buds, goat milk, and essential oil. Now all I need to do is get a label made for it and I can post it to Etsy. I also finished the packaging for the baby soap I made. I am so happy with the way it turned out, it's just as I imagined. That soap is ready to go so I will probably be getting photos of it this week and posting to my shop soon. That's all for now...happy Monday everyone!
