For Scented Products
Laura's Body and Soul
They feed my scent addiction, AND have an eczema cream that has done absolute wonders for my husband's psoriasis. I can't say enough good about that cream.
Gladheart Acres
Gladheart Acres makes lovely cold process soaps in a ton of scents and types. They also have some lovely body butters. I'm totally hooked on them. The soap has enough superfatting to be perfect for winters. My favorite shampoo bars as well.
Bath Bucket Soap
You can read my review here
Bramble Berry
I couldn't really do a list without including Bramble Berry right?
The Chemistry Connection
On Ebay, accepts Paypal. I've ordered from her, and been very happy with the service, products and pricing. Supplies. Not finished products, this is where I got the lipbalm supplies for our family's lip balm this year.

Beads
Halstead Beads
Great service and prices, great products.

Coffee
Blue Bonsai
Locally roasted yumminess. I really recommend the Empress Blend, if you prefer medium roasts, my dad loves the Samurai.
Brainscan on Etsy
She wrote the wonderful "Stolen Sharpie Revolution", and she roasts coffee to order. Yum yum.

Crochet
Crochet Pattern Central

Cloth menstrual pads
Amy's Rag Bag
Wonderful pads made with almost all post consumer recycled fabrics, the only thing that's not post consumer recycled is the thread she sews them with. She's worked out a toggle like closure for them, and a stacking system that's intuitive and flexible. Her prices are incredibly reasonable so it's a good way to start with cloth pads. I wrote a short tutorial on how to use them you can find here. If you've never bought from her, ask about her starter set, it's a very inexpensive way to start.
HoneybeeHill
Really cute new pads, vegan buttons, cloth advocacy buttons.

Hell
Old Navy, Mike said once Old Navy is Hell and all the demons wear headsets. The term stuck.

turnips
my answer to everything when I'm tired. The word turnip just amuses me
And just turnip means E. She says she's my turnip girl.

buglies
uh.. nevermind. I'm not gonna define this one after all.

Snugglelump
a particularly annoying pet name I use for Mike. I love watching him flinch

Naet
Not as evil twin, currently up for debate. She's sneaky evil and probably would call someone snugglelump to see them flinch.

Sugarbutt
see snugglelump. A twice as annoying pet name I have for Mike. Yes. I spend time thinking these up.

Lone Wolf
An aggressively unique individual who is full of angst and misunderstood. Probably not helped by me laughing at them.

IMNEVHO
In my not even vaguely humble opinion

Comic Book Day
Every Wednesday new titles get released. We get comics every Wednesday.

Greetings!

Well, if you found this, it's because you're a friend, because I haven't linked this into my webpage yet. This is my craft journal. Eventually, and I'm telling myself later this week, I'll put a link to this journal on my webpage.

We can all dream right?

So this is for me to bounce ideas around, show you all what I'm making, and offer the type of stuff I don't do on my webpage up for public consumption.

Starting with a simple crocheted washcloth I made years ago and just spotted a HUGE flaw in my pattern. So I need to try and fix it.

Well, that's the start. I'm going to try and update this fairly regularly with things as I'm making them.
