I thought I would stop in and write a quick update of all that’s going on.
I’ve been furiously writing, working on revisions and oddly enough, crafting like a fiend.What sort of crafting you are wondering? Well, I’ve made some candles and I’ve been researching new ingredients I purchased for soaps and a new mens line for my Etsy shop (which is on summer vacation right now).
Besides, now is the time to start thinking about the upcoming holidays, so I wanted to offer a more expanded line of products. Cue the planning of fragrances, packaging and graphics for labels.
We’re so close to release day I’m beginning to climb the walls. Hence all the crafting and formulating new products. Anything to keep me sane at this point is time well spent. I wish I could say more about it, but the whole project is still under wraps.

What else has been going on? Hmm… My adorable granddaughter is now 4 months and chubbiest little thing I’ve ever held.
That’s about all that’s going on with me at this time, but now I’m in the mood for doing a giveaway!
If you leave me a comment telling me what you love to do crafting wise, you’ll be entered to win a digital copy of my Scottish historical novella Saved. I’ll keep the contest open for one week.
I hope you have a wonderful week.

Hi Alayna, I have been really enjoying seeing the pictures of your granddaughter so cute.
I don’t do much crafting now, a bit of scrap booking at the most. I used to crotchet but haven’t done that in years. I would love to learn to knit though,
