Normally, I do not make a lot of seasonal jewelry. Until, now I have not seen a high demand for it. This year though, it seems everyone is more festive from Easter to Halloween people are decorating and wearing themed costume jewelry. So I decided to give it a shot and make five pairs of earrings for Halloween. To my shock and excitement, they became a best seller. All five sold! Ok, this may sound crazy but I was over the moon. And the best part? People keeping telling me how much they like them and how they went great for dressing up today. Yippy!

I have been trying to come up with a new recipe for handmade lotion. The problem I am having is finding the right ingredients to give the lotion a long shelf life. Of course, I could add chemicals but I want to keep it natural.
So which is better using chemicals or having a short shelf life?
