An Interview With Soap Lady Janet Quackenbush of Handmaiden Store Talks About Her Natural Homemade Soaps

Indizona for Graphics and More
My sister-in-law, Janet, is a busy homeschool mom and runs her own business from her home.  I don't want to spoil the interview for you, but if you like natural, real soap, hand crafted by somebody you can trust, then you will enjoy the following conversation:

Me:  How long have you been making soaps?
Janet:  For about a decade.

Me:  And what got you started with making soaps?  (or How did you get started?)
Janet:  Would you believe the smell of your brother? Actually, my skin was so dry and friends had brought in some soap made by Mennonite women. I thought cool you can make your own soap. So I researched the process and walla.

Me:  So how long was it after you started making your own...  Read More

Taking Care of Dry Clean Only on a Machine Wash Budget

Indizona for Graphics and More
I used to avoid buying anything that said "Dry Clean Only" on the label.  My budget just will not stretch far enough to pay for dry cleaning every time I want to wear something, so it was best to just avoid buying those things.

But I have learned that most of the things labeled Dry Clean Only can actually be washed either by hand or in the washer.  First thing is to know the fiber content and know if that fiber is safe to wash.  Then understand the characteristics of the fiber content and you will know why it's labeled Dry Clean Only. 

Is it 100% cotton?  Well, we all know that cotton is washable, so it was probably not preshrunk, which means you will want to wash it in cold water and hang it to dry and keep it far far away from the dryer.

How To Get Photos and Screen Shots Posted In Your Addoway Blog... Complete With Screen Shots

Indizona for Graphics and More
When you write a blog on Addoway, you may want to include photos to go with what you are writing about.  It isn't hard to do and once you know how you will be able to just breeze through the process.

First, you need to have your photos or other images hosted on an image hosting site such as Photobucket.  I mention Photobucket because I think it's the most common one.  It is the one I am most familiar with, so I will make screen shots based on using Photobucket.

Just in case you have never used Photobucket before, I am including these screen shots combined in one image with instructions to show you how to upload images to Photobucket.

Rain, Rain, Go Away..... Come Back After the Yard is Dry. A Lesson to Ask About Drainage Problems Before You Buy a House

Indizona for Graphics and More
I like most things about the place we live.  It's not in an upscale neighborhood and it's a mobile home, but I'm the queen of my double-wide trailer, LOL!!  The neighborhood is pretty quiet most of the time and there isn't anything to really complain about.  The street is not a thru street, so the only traffic we get is what belongs here.  Nobody drives down our street to get anywhere.  We are in a good location and not too far away from doctors, post office, grocery stores, church and so much more.  It's like we're right in the center of everyplace we ever need to go.

I Will Never Remember the Storm That My Mom Will Never Forget

Indizona for Graphics and More
Once upon a time, I was a little girl.  Cute little kid, actually.  Well.... weren't we all?  At any rate, when I was 5 years old, we moved into one of my favorite places that we ever lived.  It is probably my absolute favorite place, and we moved out when I was 8 years old.  It was an old farm house in rural Indiana, that sat on a hill.

After Much Diligent Searching Local Shops and Online I Have Ordered a Beautiful Mother-of-the-Bride Dress!

Indizona for Graphics and More
If you read my former post, you know that I searched long and hard for a mother-of-the-bride dress that I will be comfortable wearing.  As a result of my detailed research, I ended up with a list of style numbers from three designers that I wanted to be able to try on.  I was able to try on a good number of the ones on my list yesterday at Lorna's Bridal & Formal Wear in Loganville, Georgia.

My Mom Always Told Me That Money Doesn't Grow On Trees, But I Have Money Trees!

Indizona for Graphics and More
I bet you didn't know money really does grow on trees, did you?  Of course it isn't coins and bills, but for me, it is pecans.  The subdivision that we live in has two pecan trees planted between each home, so that two are in our yard and drop into our yard plus the neighbor's yard on one side, and then there are two trees in the other neighbor's yard that hang over into our yard and drop pecans here as well as in their yard.  We now have two very young trees that have just begun producing nuts.  These trees planted themselves at the back fence, so they will be dropping pecans into the neighbor's yard behind us as well as ours when they get big enough.

Digital Graphics are Needed by Online Sellers for Web Banners, Business Cards, Labels, and Much More

Indizona for Graphics and More
Online sellers use graphics every day, and they either make their own graphics, find a friend or family member to do it for them, or they pay somebody for their services to do the graphics for them.

They need avatars, logos, banners, business cards, address labels, shipping labels, listing templates, and all kinds of things.  I am doing that for many sellers and my clients will tell you that I work until I get what they like.  With each project I work on, there has been something new for me to learn, and I don't imagine that the learning is ever going to stop in this business.
