Ding Dong the Tooth is gone!

Hi y'all,

It's been 5 days since my tooth was pulled along with two others (ouch!) so I am back to being pain free. What a relief that is. Now I can concentrate on more updates for Indian Nations, this blog, my Psychedelic Rainbow site, and of course my Artfire store.

We have added a really cool range of Buffalo Tallow lotions, soaps, body sprays, and lip balms to our Indian Nations store. They are made by Prairie Harvest in

South Dakota and smell divine. My favorites are Sweet Pea and Rhubarb and Sweet Violet and Sassafras. There is also Sweetgrass, Amber Woods, and Lavender and Sage. We will be adding more fragrances as time goes by. I will be adding these products to our botanicals page at within the next 2 days so remember to go and check.

I have been busy the past few nights finishing a beaded amulet bag for my friend as a surprise. She hasn't heard from me in 14 years so it should be one hell of a surprise! I just recently tracked her down. I have also been beading some Native American inspired earrings as gifts for Christmas. What have you guys been making?

The other day I ordered 30lbs of cherry pits. I forgot how heavy 30lbs is, almost dropped the box when it arrived. LOL I need these for my heat pads I am making. All I have to do now is figure out how to use the sewing machine I bought from the local thrift store. (Thank you, Jamie!)It has been many years since I have used one of these electronic sew-your-finger-if-you're-not-careful machines, so it should be fun trying to figure it all out. It has a box full of different feet and I remember thinking at the time, what the heck do I need that many feet for? My original sewing machine only had one! I just need a plug and play machine. LOL I found some material sample books in pristine condition with all kinds of different prints and patterns that will make wonderful covers for hand warmers and pocket warmers. It's amazing what you can find when you rummage. I encourage all of you to go rummage around in thrift stores and charity shops. They are filled with goodies you can recycle or upcycle. Please recycle the things you don't want or need. That old coat of yours may keep someone from freezing this winter.

Well that's it from me for today. I need to go play with the web sites and add more good stuff. Remember, everything in our Artfire store is still 10% off. Click the coupon in the right hand margin and use the coupon code at the checkout if you decide to buy anything.

Loki says woof and have a great weekend all.
