Sold this in my Etsy Shop

I was organizing my shop getting ready for a sale. I was putting all my Etsy store items in a certain spot to be kept out of the sale. I came across this wonderful primitive abacus/chalkboard that I had crafted and the thought that went through my mind was, " Wow, This is so nice. Can't believe it hasn't sold yet!"
The very next day.....Bingo! Sold it! Crazy. I have done that a lot with my thoughts. I will be needing something..thinking about it( and knowing the chances are slim to none for finding it) and suddenly..there it will be at a yard sale or something. I am always amazed.
Hasn't worked for a million dollars yet but I have toned it down to wishing for a mere 100,000.00 maybe?!?!
Have any of you had this happen? Maybe not the money part, but the whole concept of wishing for something and having it happen or appear?

Here! I'm Still here!

Truly, my apologies for not keeping up with my blog! I know some of you loyal readers are disappointed in me..I will try to do better!
I had a busy spring with the kids and all. Kidding season is over and everyone is healthy and happy.
My youngest human kid just returned from his Washington DC trip. He had a great time. I can't believe how many things they pack into 5 days of sightseeing!
My oldest is life guarding at the pool this summer so I get a season pass for half price. So far I have gone everyday using it as a workout tool.
And now for my big news..... (drum roll)

I started making cold process Goat's Milk Soap! I am obsessed! Every nook and cranny of my house has soap in it, curing. Today I am going to make some with hemp oil. Can't wait to get a few of them in my shops to see if people like them. Soon, I will get some pictures and put them on here. I am still developing the packaging.... translated as I am almost out of printer ink and it's not in the budget this week!
I can tell you this..I will never go back to store bought soap! Home made is so much better!
