It's been a long weekend, complete with a fourteen hour film festival hosted at our house (Hobbitpalooza - all three extended editions of the Lord of the Ring movies, with 8 meals/snacks served throughout the day), an afternoon tea and crafty gift-swap with friends, and a brainstorming meeting with the crew for WhedonFest 2010. Also, a weekend-long visit from my daughter's boyfriend.

We had a great time, saw lots of friends, including some we don't get to see very often, and ate TONS of delicious food. :) The downside is that the prep for all this took up much of my week, so I just now got around to posting some new products.

I have "Tub Treats" available at the Stones River Market now, and hope to get them posted on Etsy soon. (In the mean time, if you're interested and not local to me, just email me for an order).

Tub Treats are currently available in a selection of 5 "flavors" (scents - don't eat them): spa day - a relaxing and refreshing scent that reminds my friend Squiddie of a day at the spa, sleepytime - pure lavender scent for relaxing at bedtime, spicy-fresh - created for an online friend who loves ginger, citrus fresh - just a blend of citrus essential oils for a refreshing and energizing scent, and scarborough faire - herbal essential oils blend just like the song (but without the parsley).

Each tub treat is about 1/2 an ounce of cocoa & mango butters with some added vitamin E and essential oils for scent. They're relaxing and moisturizing and would make a great addition to a gift bag!

New market place

I've just been added to the Stones River Market. You can check out the website here, and if you're local to Murfreesboro, I'd suggest checking them out. It's like a cross between a farmer's market and a CSA program. You sign in once a week, select exactly what you want from the various growers in the area, and submit your order. A few days later you go to the pick up location, give them cash or a check for your total order, and bring home all your locally raised, grown, made, or baked goodies. We ordered from them last week and came home with some turkey, ground beef, fresh veggies, homemade jams, and a garlic/herb focaccia that was quite tasty. :)

They have a bath & body section too, which includes my current items and another person who makes soaps and body scrubs and such. I'm really excited about this as both a seller and a customer, so be sure to check them out. And if you're close by and thinking about ordering something from me, this is a good way to do it without having to deal with etsy.
