Free Sentiment Digi's and more...


First I would like to welcome all my new followers! Thank you for following, and I really hope you enjoy stopping by my little corner of the Web!

I would also like to thank those of you who have made donations for some of my digi's. Most of them are free, but there are a few that are now watermarked.

This post is going to be a hodge-podge of a few things. First, here's where I'm at with my Teacup Mirror. At this point it's a matter of placing and moving things around. I have less than a week to complete it. I'm hoping it'll be a quiet weekend so that I can get it done! 

I've been making more soap as well. This one is a glycerine bar that has a wonderfully clean, fresh scent with a tiny little touch of sweetness. I love it. I don't have a name for it yet, but that's okay.  The bottom two bars are my attempt at a layered soap...it wasn't working so I decided to swirl it a bit. In the end I guess they look okay.
Plus, here's a few sentiment freebies.

Hope you like them!

As for things around here...I'm no gardener, but we did get the yard fertilized (well, my son did it).

We hung up some of my mini rose buds to dry (well, my hubby did it). Now that the weather has heated up, they should dry fairly quickly.

I'll be using them on my soap (and yes, I'll definitely be the one doing that!!) :)

Anyhoo...that's it for now! Enjoy the weekend!
