An Overdue Thank You

I would like to consider myself a polite person and I usually am. I am also a procrastinator though and so I often walk around with blog posts I want to write about in my head until I get around to actually sitting down and posting them. One of those things I have wanted to write about for awhile is the really nice prize I won when I entered a Giveaway on the blog Flartopia.

I don't get much in my mailbox other than bills so I was very happy to receive a lovely bar of soap and a bottle of Rose/Patchouli lotion from Flartus. I want to say thank you so very much Flartus, I loved my prize!

You are probably wondering what kind of a name is Flartus and what is Flartopia? It is a great blog about gardening, and cooking among other things. If you ever had one of those days when you stand in front of the freezer and just don't know what to cook, then you definitely should check out this blog. You will also get to meet the completely adorable Rosie and learn about a chef and a teacher that are doing their part to help promote farmers markets and that care about local farmers, which I think is really cool. If you are still wondering about the name Flartus, you will just have to go to her blog and find out about that yourself.

Thank you, Jennifer, for such nice words about my blog! I'm happy you enjoyed your gift; I was a little nervous about sending goats'-milk soap to a person who makes her own.

I enjoyed reading your description of my blog; I didn't think of it as having a theme, but I guess I've developed one. I had to laugh, though about your description of standing in front of the freezer wondering what to make, because I do the same thing all the time!

Thank you Flartus and Mom L! No worries Flartus, even though I do make my own goat milk soap I do enjoy trying other people's soap too!

The lotion sounds absolutely wonderful. I keep wanting to try making my own goat's milk soap, but I'm kind of nervous about it. Is it really hard?
