....irons in the fire....


.

......greetings......Sunshines.............

...as January comes to an abrupt close......already.....i realize ...that...like most of you ............i always

have ......irons in the fire..............so to speak.........probably way too many for one person

too........but i think its way fun....and somewhat of a challenge......don't

you?....to complete them..........call them projects...........missions......laundry lists ......do do

lists................i had a few for January!............and i wasn't going to set a time to

complete................or list them here on the blog............................. and stress myself over it..........so i

am taking my little ol sweet time this year..........that is the fun of  completing things............when they

are done they are done......................and we can do the happy dance then...............and have fun taking

pictures................think i am approaching these fun things (another way of looking at tasks :) ..a little

different this year...................makin a list....................prioritizing that list..................then making a

move on it!

....i will, however, do the .....happy dance.....when i complete each and every one! I will maybe share

or not.........planning a garage/yard sale........again.......for me it's either way too hot or too cold.......

so there you go! :) yeah right!.....

....it has been a little warmer this week.......thank goodness......severe summer i think toped 113 deg

winter down to the freezing and below the mark....so far.......i know the weather is changing, but

really..............how are you attacking and planning your next project?...........however large or

small.......did you set a time...limit? or are you winging it this time..........like me! hugs and have a

wonderful weekend!!

....do you know your produce codes?.....

....hello sunshines.......i love live food vs canned and processed.......as some of you do.............my

body screams.....green.......when i'm under the weather as well.... ..so do you know your produce

codes?.................well i didn't but learned this ........recently..........

.............if the number on your fresh produce starts with a 4......then it is conventionally grown......
........if it starts with a 9...then it is organically grown........ .......and if it starts with an 8.......well it is

........genetically modified. .......who knew...........these beautiful pictures with this info ...is..found.....

french milled soaps, South of France



hi,

my sister recently sent me a fun package and i was so excited to see that is was a new

Farmers Almanac Gardening Guide for 2013 and a beautiful bar

of  South of France Vegetable Milled soap Shea Butter, natural beauty care moisturising Shea butter, french milled soap!

This soap is just wonderful, it is so nice to the skin and lathers beautifully

A rather large bar, we are guessing between us whose will last the longest!

Update: this soap is just wonderful! Lasted me 1 1/2 months! My Sis, not so long! she really loves it!

.....caves.......use your....imagination

Dewalt............4-Tool 18-Volt Cordless Combo Kit.............nice package!

......good morning Sunshines............................i have a question!.................

...............why is a "cave" always referring to a "man cave" and not a girlie cave.....woman cave.......

studio cave..............crafty cave........:).....tool companies!....can you hear me????

.....................ladies love tools too! and...............unlike the guys.................we shout it from the rooftops ...................tell everyone we know....................and we are as loud as we can be because we love to share and pass this stuff on!

.......hey how about a red drill! since red is my fave color ...........

..........e v e r  :) ................hellooooooooo! lol............

....well....................last Summer i got so mad..........why?

........because i never knew.....................the men in my life would never let me use their tools ......how much fun power tools were!

.................go figure at my age!.........and i'm old!  .....guess i'm a slow start :) ....but i'm havin fun now.............:)..and the sky is the limit for me...................

..........girls and ladies....it is never too late to start anything! ....just be safe in learning............:)

.........so this year..................reviewing lovely woman cave tools, and Dewalt is one of the best out there!...........................i love Dewalt!

................just saying! :)..................check out Lowe's prices as well!....very nice package deal!

............happy first week in 2013 Sunshines!  ......hugs.........................from........................

Kat =^.^= in the "studio girlie cave" :)........have a wonderful weekend!

....laundry lists and more..............



..............................good morning sunshines.......................

.................wow is all i can say, as sometimes. not sure about you, but, sometimes my ...................."laundry lists or to-do lists" clutter my head and studio desk!

...........since i've retired, i also retired the infamous, are you ready ..............day timer book!

.........well, apparently it is time, once again, to get it out, open it up and start writing....... documenting......recording what is most important at any given day and time :)

............the only saving grace is that this lovely book of mine is a gorgeous red color, supple soft leather like material and i absolutely love to hold it, the texture and feel is wonderful.............

....once you start recording stuff.........it becomes somewhat of a habit......and extremely helpful at times..............

.........................i have found that if i cannot sleep or my mind is muddled with ideas....hum..... i can "give away" my thoughts...................whether it be issues or things i want to accomplish......or especially if these come in the middle of the night...................i can always flip the switch or flashlight.........write it down............... give it away to the Lord............and address the next day, and get back to sleep!

..................that way i wont forget it.....i will remember it........like my dreams.......  most of the time i write them down and do my research the next day....................

.................i've always kept pen and paper next to me and in my purse as one never knows where inspiration will come from........................

..................wishing you a wonderful and .............productive day.....take care of you! hugs Kat =^/^=

...Happy New Year!!!.... 2013




................good morning Sunshines......and Happy New Year to you and yours!

.....looking forward to 2013 and what it will bring..................wishing you and yours.....

....a healthy.....happy..loving ........peaceful........wonderful..and productive New Year!.....

.....rise above the little things................

........take the high road...............

............fall under the radar.....................

............ live by the golden rule.............

.........pay it forward................

love......................and

.....hugs kat =^.^=
