First, I want to let everyone know that Zoe Winters has her book, Save My Soul for FREE on Amazon. Here is the link: Save My Soul

Next, I want to mention that I’ve been trying to go natural with some of my skin care products. I’m not one of those people who think everything has to be organic, but I’m experimenting a little with different things. What started me finding some of these natural products on etsy.com is this blog Sparkling Reviews. I found the blog a awhile back when Mary favorably reviewed one of my books. I started following the blog. You should subscribe because there are usually giveaways related to the products reviewed, and I’ve actually won something. Most of the reviews lately have been Etsy shops. And I’ve been buying from some of the shops that have been reviewed. One of the things I love about natural skin care is that it usually smells AMAZING. And it feels so good on your skin. I’ve bought moisturizer, masks, soap, shampoo, and even eye shadow. Here are some of my favorite Etsy shops:


Okay, and a couple of “edible” shops:


I’ve placed an order for some ingredients to make my own moisturizer. I’ll let you know how THAT turns out.

In puppy news, we finally got Duke a place to run in the yard. He’s restrained but has LOTS of running room. He seems to be okay with it. I guess it’s better than being cooped up in a garage all day. And now my car can go back in the garage! Yay. And now there’s no poop in there. 😉

A Couple of Things

I’ve been silent for almost a week on this blog. I’ve just been trying to process everything that’s happened to me as well as to family and friends. I keep saying, “What’s going to happen next???” Anyway, life is what it is, and we all have to cope.

Anyway, I just have a couple of quick things. First, I was wondering how many of you ever shop on etsy.com. Honestly, I almost went kind of nuts with it for awhile, until I realized I was spending too much money. But I love to support small businesses, especially the crafty kind, since I used to have an Etsy shop. Lately, I’ve been shopping for soap and other beauty products. But I did get some fudge that was wonderful (before I knew I was diabetic). Anyway, if you like to support people who are trying to make a living with their craft (you know, kind of like authors), then Etsy is a great place to shop.

Also, I was in the front office a few minutes ago and saw our company mascot lying in one of his favorite positions. It always tickles me to see him like this, so I thought I would share a picture. 🙂
