Is it Spring yet?

I don't know about you all, but I can't wait for spring to arrive. Here in Minnesota, we have had snow, snow, and just when you get used to the brown grass and dry streets, more SNOW! Enough already! I know the calendar reads spring, but for us, spring doesn't really start until May or so.

So what's a girl to do? Well one of my favorite things to do is visit Bachmans( The smell of fresh flowers and the feeling of warm sun, just make me feel so much better. Also Patrick's Cafe (located inside) is one of my splurges. I love the Tomato Mozzarella sandwich! Also a trip to the Conservatory at Como Zoo is a wonderful place to cheer up those prolonged Winter blues.

Now I realize that it may be spring where you are, but if your in one of the colder states, take a look around your neck of the woods. Find a garden shop to visit and just hang in there. In no time Spring will arrive!

I am officially a meber of the Indie Beauty Network!

After at least a year worth of observations, I finally decided to join the indie beauty network.

I've been following the founder of the Indie Beauty Network, Donna Maria for quite some time. I've read her books on how to make beauty products, and listen faithfully to her radio shows that talk about being a women, wife, mother, and entrepreneur.

Donna Maria's show discusses the life a of women who have become tired of the rat race of corporate America and decides to follow her dreams of starting her own business. Many of the women featured have left high paying jobs to start a home-based business to be closer to their families. Their testimonies are encouraging and let me know I'm not in this alone.

If your thinking of starting a business, this is a great resource whether you make candles or do web design. Visit for more info.

Hello everybody. I know the prior post seem a little weird. No I didn't write several blogs for one day. lol.

I made the decision earlier that I would discontinue this blog and keep my blogs on my website and myspace instead. I also send out a monthly newsletter, so I just decide not to post here.

However, after seeing so many people using blogger and all of it's nice features, I decided that I would post here instead of my website. So all of my website blog fans- I'll be making some changes, but the outcome will be much better!

What a day it has been. Earlier this morning I woke up bright and early to get started on my website launch and found that my computer had failed. Crashed. Done. No pictures, no documents, nothing but a black screen. I spent most of the morning at Geek Squad and left with no answers.
One thing is for sure, the show must go on so, someway, somehow, I will launch my new products tomorrow. I am more than a conqueror! Check us out tomorrow!

Were launching a new line!
