Good Things...An Unexpected Surprise...

Months ago I had chatted on the Martha Stewart Community forum...I love visiting her homepage because of the wonderful crafts, and tips she has to offer. When I went to visit her forum today, I was quite surprized...

There in front of me was a picture I had taken of my handmade soaps under our Willow tree...I had offered my comments about the goodness of giving handmade soaps...


The blurb says, "Welcome guests...member Gigi puts out handmade soaps in a recycled basket when guests arrive..." To say the least a very unexpected, but wonderful surprize!

Hope you have a wonderful week. Thanks for visiting!

Carrie,

I think that is so awesome that you're on Martha's website! I love Martha and all of her clever ideas. But it's nice to see people like yourself are the ones with all the ideas! I wish I were more like that. Your soaps look yummy and the picture looks like a professional photographer staged and took it! Did you take the picture? It's great.

Susie :)

SusieQ~Thank you for your comments; I wish I could have a professional photographer, but for now I do the "staging" and snap away, until I am happy with what I see. As I remember on your blog, you have an artist talent- I am jealous! I can't draw inbetween the lines. Now-that is real ART!
