Custom Order

My custom order is finally finished and has been delivered. Although there was a small fiasco with my sewing maching in which it decided to die on my as I was almost done. Here is what I made.

This is one of the aprons that I made. The girl who ordered them wanted to have a lot of pockets for prizes for the kids at church during singing time.

I'm thinking about putting some aprons into my shop of course they won't have that many pockets. I would love some feedback.

Melaleuca Testimonial

As some of you may know or don't know, my husband and I have signed up with Melaleuca to be distributors as a small side venture for extra income. I haven't been as active promoting as I should have because I wanted to be sure that we had tried as much of the products before sharing. Well it's now April and we have been using the products since August and really love them! In fact they are really good products that are safe and environmentally friendly. Okay now here's my personal testimonial.

A few nights ago my son had a bloody nose and ended up getting his sheets, pillow and comforter with blood. Ugh!! As we all know blood is not easy to remove and usually will leave a residual stain even after washing and using a spot treatment. I have been using Melaleuca's Prespot treatment spray for regular foods stains and it does a good job getting those out. So I thought well now is a good time to test to see if it will get blood out. I saturated everwhere that had a blood stain, threw it into the wash on a presoak cycle and let it do its thing. After the wash cycle was over I inspected every inch of the sheets and didn't find one trace of blood!! Not one!! I couldn't believe it I was super excited about that! Now my son has stainfree sheets and pillow!

This product by far has exceed my expectations! I have thrown on my Shout spray and will use this spray from now on!

** Just as a side note the picture above is the concetrate bottle, you mix it in a spray bottle with water (picture below).**

This is the spray bottle you use to mix with.

If you want to learn more about these amazing products send me an email and I would be more than happy to share more!!

It doesn't look like it's that big a of a difference but there are 5 weeks in between them. I can't wait to meet this little girl!
