More info

I guess I should have given a little more info...forgive me please.

I already found a buyer :) Her name is Diane and she has been my number one "sales lady" here in PA. Her and another woman are going to partner up.

The products will be the same, the scents will be the same! I'm sure she will add her own scents, scent blends, & in time, her own recipes but to start with, they will be what you are used to :)

Don't fret, this is a good thing!!! I haven't had the time to give Skin Candy the attention it deserves which left you, my great customers, flapping in the wind. Like I said prior, I would rather sell it than let it die.

Give Diane a chance and she won't disappoint you.....I PROMISE!



Things have changed at the daycare recently.

My husband and I have decided that, for the sake of our marriage, he is going to go out and get a "real" job and I am going to stay at the daycare full-time and run it.

SOOOOOO I'm going to be selling Skin Candy :( I just don't have the time to give to it anymore. I don't want to just let it die because I worked so hard and I really love it!

I'll update everyone as often as I can.

Fark, Fark, Fark!!!!

The girl that just started at the daycare has quit. I have to close the shop :(

Everyone thinks working with dogs is all butterflies and rainbows. I'm going to go cry and then head in to work *sighs*

Hey there everyone,

Well the new full time girl started at the daycare yesterday so I find that I have some time on my hands :)

I'm going to open the store and see how it goes. I'll close Skin Candy on the weekends, because I have to work at the daycare, at least until the new girl is fully trained and comfortable.

I added a few new scents and I also took away some products that just weren't selling very well (I bet you won't even notice which ones are gone lol) .

Now I'm off to make some home made granola for my yogurt :) Here is the recipe if you are interested:
7 cups of oatmeal (I've use the long cooking but you could use the instant)
1 cup of wheat germ
1 cup of flax seed meal
1/2 cup of honey (I've cut it down by half and it's still yummy)
1/2 cup canola oil (I've also cut this down by half)
1 Tbls vanilla
1-2 cups pecans
1-2 cups almonds (I've used whole & sliced, both work)
1 cup coconut (you can skip this if you want)
1 tsp salt
1 Tbls cinnamon
1 tsp clove
1 tsp nutmeg

Preheat oven to 300 degrees F
In a large bowl add the oats, wheat germ, flax seed meal, coconut, and nuts
In a medium bowl blend the honey, oil, salt, cinnamon, clove, and nutmeg-mix with oat mixture and stir
pour on to two cookie sheets lined with foil
bake in the pre-heated oven for 30-45 minutes stirring occasionally (bake to your liking-I prefer mine darker so I bake longer).

You really can't go wrong. I've added more cinnamon, and also apple pie spice and all spice. Season it to your liking! Oh Oh Oh, I forgot to add that you can eat this as cereal!! Just put in a bowl and add your milk or soy milk to it :)

I also store this in the cereal dispenser available from amazon http://www.amazon.com/Zevro-TSO100-Indispensable-2-Ounce-Dispenser/dp/B000LFGFBC/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=home-garden&qid=1268148533&sr=8-1

I LOVE this thing! Really handy, just put your bowl of yogurt under the knob and turn. It will dispense around 1 ounce of product, of course I do 3-4 turns for my yogurt :)

I can open today-for the day

I'm going to open up the store today and take some orders. I have a part time girl starting at the daycare tomorrow so I can take the morning to do Skin Candy :)

If it gets too crazy I'll close up the store so I don't get bogged down with orders. I want to be able to keep my same fast TAT!
