Well, I had planned on sharing with you today the treasury I created yesterday afternoon (my first one!). Then this morning I logged into Etsy to discover that my Irish Cream lip balm has been included in someone else's treasury (yay!).

Abstract Landscape Inspiration Treasury - My Irish Cream lip balm is here.
Upcycled Blues Treasury - I featured EtsyVeg and Etsy Fort Worth teammates here (including this lovely cameo necklace from silentlotus), come check it out!

Please stop by, click and comment. You know you want to. :)

Hump Day Humor

I know I've said this before, but I'll say it again: Fail Blog is a hilarious website. And while it's mostly full of fail, every once in a while there's something that wins, like this car.

Here is some of what you can look forward to:
New products (like the hand and body cream that some of you have been waiting for a long time!)
Reformulated products (they were great before... now they're even more amazing!)


a new name!

Book Review - Chosen by P.C. Cast and Kristin Cast

Chosen (House of Night #3)
by P.C. Cast and Kristin Cast
Young Adult

Book Number: 4 (Summer "Beach Reads" Challenge)

Summary: Dark forces are at work at the House of Night and fledgling vampyre Zoey Redbird’s adventures at the school take a mysterious turn. Those who appear to be friends are turning out to be enemies. And oddly enough, sworn enemies are also turning into friends. So begins the gripping third installment of this “highly addictive series” (Romantic Times), in which Zoey’s mettle will be tested like never before. Her best friend, Stevie Rae, is undead and struggling to maintain a grip on her humanity. Zoey doesn’t have a clue how to help her, but she does know that anything she and Stevie Rae discover must be kept secret from everyone else at the House of Night, where trust has become a rare commodity. Speaking of rare: Zoey finds herself in the very unexpected and rare position of having three boyfriends. Mix a little bloodlust into the equation and the situation has the potential to spell social disaster. Just when it seems things couldn’t get any tougher, vampyres start turning up dead. Really dead. It looks like the People of Faith, and Zoey’s horrid step-father in particular, are tired of living side-by-side with vampyres. But, as Zoey and her friends so often find out, how things appear rarely reflects the truth… (from Goodreads)

My thoughts: The focus of this book is not only the dramatic plot elements continuing from book #2, but in all of the bad decisions Zoey makes. Even though she is Nyx's Chosen One, she is still a teenager, and makes stupid decisions just like any other teenager. Except with Zoey, everything that happens is on a *much* larger scale. Parts of this book are painful to read, and I found myself trying to will her to not do some things. But this book will keep you reading, just to find out how Zoey will manage to work out the mess she's made of everything. And at the end, you want to read the next one, because it's clear that bad stuff is about to go down at the House of Night.

Music Monday

This weekend we had a bunch of friends over for a cookout and game night, which turned into game weekend. Since I'm not currently not drinking anything alcoholic, I made a pitcher of sangria using a recipe from my Margarita Mama cookbook (which I *love*). The sangria was a hit - I even had to make a second pitcher! The only downside was that Ben and his friends decided that it was a good time to sing or whistle Sangria Wine over and over throughout the night. So since it's been stuck in my head all weekend, I thought I'd share it with you too. (Gee, thanks, you're probably thinking. Don't tell Ben, but I'm a little afraid the song is starting to grow on me...)
