Welcome to the first Friday Wrap-Up! In order to make this blog a little less, uh, dry and boring (har), it's going to be a bit more personalized. Fun. Hopefully, interesting. Here's my past week, at a glance.
Lalalita Body Co had four sales in the past week! Four! Hallelujah and all that goodness! Here are the Pretty in Pink Lemonade and Hush... Hush, Sweet Pumpkin Pie sugar scrubs, sealed and prettified and ready to ship off this morning.
I have a Pinterest board entitled "Foods I'd Like to Try". I've had it up for, oh, about as long as I've been on Pinterest; pinning away, but trying nothing. Yesterday, I made Butter Dip Biscuits. Believe you me, these will be a very rare treat, as they're baked IN an entire stick of butter (watch out, Paula Deen!), but they did turn out deliciously. You can find the recipe here: Butter Dip Biscuits
We're pinching pennies so we'll have plenty to spend on our anniversary vacation next month, but Saturday we threw pennies to the wind and went out to lunch. After we were seated, I spotted the painting above Mr. Calm's head, and couldn't resist asking him to pose. Hee!
A week ago, my wonderful friend Carla and I met for coffee, and she surprised me with some birthday presents. These skeleton lights are, to use an overused, old term, da bomb! I love them! You can tell that they're hanging on my mantel at home; you can't tell that within fifteen minutes of getting home, I hung them up.
Lastly, I don't make much art anymore, but I finished one piece this week to take to the gallery I've been showing at since 2007. Allow me to introduce you to "Doll of the Dead". She may be a little startling to look at, but she is sweet and kind and likes Pan de Muerto.
