My New Year resolution is going to be one you’ve already heard. I’m going to try and blog more frequently and do it with a direction in mind. Although, sometimes (well a lot of times) my mind go off track.

So with ALL that said

Everyone

I have been so busy these days it makes my head spin.

I can’t believe that Christmas is next week. Whew! I have so many things to do and not enough time to do them.

Last weekend (and this weekend)  I had my soaps at the Boonton Holiday Boutique. It’s a Boutique my town opens just for the holidays (around December)

This year someone donated an office type of building. So, it more like individual shops All in One place (like a mini mall without ALL the aggravation). It’s really cool. There is everything from

Domestic Goddess Candles

(So Yummy! she makes the worlds BEST candles ever!)

 Sister jewelry

Papyrus Home Design

Handmade ornaments

And lots more!

Today I have lots of things to do! Well, Lots of SOAPING to do. There are lots of new and exciting things to come. January will be a new year for me and this blog. Stay tuned for more……………….

What could be better than Gingerbread  every where?

I got a chance to peek at the gingerbread creations before the Craft Show started. But, I forgot to take pictures. Duh!

So, since it was a two day event I had my husband go and take some pictures.  You’ll notice they are just pictures. I forgot to tell

him to take pictures of the actual scenes. He did however manage to take a picture of one that I loved…If you scroll down you’ll see it…
