Still Here.....making soy candles and such for the Christmas openhouse

Hello to you all....I thought I better do a quick post or you might stop visiting me!! I am still busy working on stuff for our Christmas Open House. I just have a few last minute things to get done. I say it's a few last minute touches but I am sure that it will take me hours!! I do all my crafting things in between being a Mom and Farm wife....and I am POOPED! My kids and hubby are most important so I don't like to take too much time away from them! We are still harvesting sunflowers so I think you get the picture that things have been busy! I will leave you with a few pictures of what I have been up.



My chapsticks are all poured and labeled but still need to be packaged in a

little bag with pretty ribbon!


My candles are all poured, labled and priced! They are ready to GO!




Fixins are ready to go...I will package a few but leave most

in big tubs to be scooped out and packaged as the

customer wants them.


For now I must run and get everything ready to go!!!!

Have a great weekend everyone...I will be able to stop by and visit after this weekend!

Until next time...................

Farmchick

Wow, you sure have been busy! Love the fixens and I think it's a great idea to have the customer's scoop them out to get the exact amount they want:)

It was nice to hear from you even if just a short one. This time of the year does seem like it is so busy.
I really did enjoy the photo you took of the moose.
Have a safe and blessed weekend.

Hi, Farmchick,

Thank you for visiting and commenting on my blog! That way I found my way to yours.

You sound like a VERY busy farmwife! Lots going on....good for you!

I'm guessing you're in the Great Plains somewhere since you have wheat. I love that photo on your sidebar of the combines....I love dust in photos of farm machines!

Your candles look lovely. There's a soy candle company in New Hampton, Iowa, not too far from where I live.

Thanksgiving blessings to you and yours!

Hey Farmchick- this is odd chick- thanks for visiting my blog! We have a lot in common. I love that you make soy chapstiks. I make alfalfa stiks and chik sticks! I also make candles and other homemade products. I love sunflowers- and your pictures were a delight to the eyes. I hope you'll visit again!!
