I’m taking a break from my regularly scheduled novel writing to give some gratitude.  First, I’d like to thank those of you who have encouraged me and this novel writing business.  I’ve got ten days to go to complete the NaNoWriMo challenge, which really equates to seven because seriously, how am I supposed to have Thanksgiving plus a craft show the two days following and also write over nearly six thousand words those days?  Your continued encouragement is appreciated.

Me, these days.

Secondly, I’d like to thank Kelly Robinson who is the author of the blog Book Dirt.  She so graciously featured my very fun (and often irreverent and naughty) pulp magnets on her blog.  Her blog is all about books, and she, being a ghostwriter, freelance writer, and essayist, along with working in a bookstore for over sixteen years, knows her books.  And better still she appreciates a good book cover.  I’m flattered that she finds my pulp magnets worthy of mention in her blog, but I must say I still love them myself even after making them for years.  If you’re a lover of writing, a lover of books, or a lover a blogs go and check out Kelly’s blog.

Kelly points out the fact that in my Etsy shop most of the magnets only have “one available.”  I’d like to make it perfectly clear that if anyone wants more than one of a certain kind I’m happy to oblige and will make more.  Afterall, I’m in the business of not only making magnets, but also making my customers happy.

Thank you, Kelly, for such high praise, and the rest of you for your support in my crafting and writing endeavors.  I’ll be back soon, you can be sure.

Sandalwood is known for its calming properties, is deeply grounding, and useful for chakra work.  The fragrance instills inner peace and is helpful in cases of stress, depression, and low self-esteem.  It’s also been considered an aphrodesiac.

That’s all very mystical and spiritual (and also a little sexy, I guess) but the thing I like best about sandalwood is that it smells really good.  Of the “earthy” scents it’s my favorite, and it seems to be a favorite of my customers too.  Lucky for you I have two in my Etsy shop.

Check out more all-natural palm wax candles in a variety of colors and fragrances in my shop.  If you’re interested in more of something or something completely different, let me know and I’ll do my best to create a custom candle, or set of candles, for you.

Real cowboys always wear Wranger jeans. And everyone knows girls go nuts for Wrangler butts.

The Cowboys drink charms have been a top seller since I started making them and are popular with men and women alike.  At one craft show there was a boy about fourteen or fifteen years old with a set of the Cowboys drink charms in his hands, looking thoughtfully at all the images.  His mom wondered why he was so interested in them.  He looked at her and said “I’m going to buy these for Grandma – she loves cowboys!”  I guess even grandmas go nuts for Wrangler butts.  Party on, partner!

Find the Cowboys Drink Charms Set of 6 at Auntie B’s Wax. If they’re sold out let me know – I can make more! Click the pic to fly to the listing in my Etsy shop.

Tonight I’ll be attending the 2013 commencement ceremony for the seniors of DeLaSalle High School. One of those seniors is my nephew, Fojo. In honor of him and his undying passion for fishing I’m featuring my Fish Head Bottle Cap Magnet, available at my Etsy shop. Congratulations, Fojo. Here’s wishing you a fabulous summer of fishing!

You are my sunshine, my only sunshine
You make me happy when skies are grey
You’ll never know, dear, how much I love you
Please don’t take my sunshine away

A Child’s Vision
by Alfred Noyes

Under the sweet-peas I stood
And drew deep breaths, they smelt so good.
Then, with strange enchanted eyes,
I saw them change to butterflies.

Higher than the skylark sings
I saw their fluttering crimson wings
Leave their garden-trellis bare
And fly into the upper air.

Standing in an elfin trance
Through the clouds I saw them glance….
Then I stretched my hands up high
And touched them in the distant sky.

At once the coloured wing came back
From wandering in the zodiac.
Under the sweet-peas I stood
And drew deep breaths. They smelt so good.
