Changes and Last Call for some items...

I've been more absent than usual lately- Val has moved on to greener pastures, and I've been double-timing it around the shop. She actually had a little part time job on the side, and because she's Super Val she got a promotion that she couldn't pass up.  We're happy for her, and we'll miss her.

We were very fortunate to find a great replacement in Heidi, and she's learning the ropes pretty darn fast.

Last week's gift with purchase was Mystic- I apologize for the name recycling.  It was inspired by a conversation I had with a friend, and I rather like it.  This week's GWP is Inspire- something fun, something easy, and something inspired.

We have a few products that need to take the Summer off- a few of the meltier skin care products- the Cuticle Balm, Lotion Bars, and the Liner Palettes.  We're not exactly sure if the Liner Palettes will melt, but they are really a labor of love, and it would kill us to hear that it melted in a mailbox, so we're pulling them for the foreseeable future.

We also have to discontinue some of the lip balms to make room on the shelves.  Right now they're stacked and stacked and stacked on top of each other.  So the Winter flavors are going on a little Summer vacation too.

They're all in a special category on the site called "Last Call" and will be available through Monday.

The other little piece of news is that I need to reformulate Facelift.   I know it's a real favorite, and I love it too, but lately a few of the batches grew some crystals.   I've made it the same way for years- and all of a sudden we've had to throw-out a few batches because of the crystal issue.  I'm working on it, and will have it back on the site ASAP.

Happy Summer!!!!!!!  Have a lovely, wonderful, and safe Memorial Day weekend!
