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...................

I'm glad you had time to post quickly and let us know what's up with you. What a great idea for 'fixins'...wish I could be there. Have a great sale; we'll be looking forward to hearing about it.

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:)
Have a great day!

Sharon said...

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.

Sure wish I lived close enough to visit. I know your open house will be a great success.

Please check out my post regarding a prayer request for a precious little boy, and pass along the request to your friends.

Thanks...blessings to you!

Hi TAnia,

I just stopped by to say hi! I know what you mean about being busy...and life with our families is most important!

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!

Odd Chick said...

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!!

HippieDog said...

Hello my little Farm Doll! I'm getting mighty hungry for some of your recipes :) Please come back soon! You know I usually only make desserts and I need some REAL food :) xo So glad your boutique turned out lovely---I really need some of that's cold as the dickens here tonight :) Have a Happy Beautifully Blessed Thanksgiving!!

Frazzled Farm Wife said...

Soy chapstick....awesome, I had never heard of that before! You go girl, keep promoting those soybeans!

tommiejo said...
