Hi all,

I have a new blog where I'll be posting pictures of my paintings and announcements when I have new works up in my Fine Art America Gallery. The blog is still a work in progress. I will post pictures of my artwork as I fine tune it. You can find my new blog at:

I have many paintings to share with you.

Hope to see you there!

Home Made Laundry Soap

Since one of my reasons for closing my shoppe was many of my customers are on fixed incomes, I thought I would share a few tips for saving money and have a bit of fun doing it. A few months back, someone posted a home made laundry soap recipe on facebook. I tried it and I love it! Whether you live alone or with a household like me, You'll SAVE... SAVE... SAVE. For us, store bought laundry soap runs about $11.00 for 140 loads. That can go quickly when you live with four grown men. This recipe is less than $2.00 for 128 loads.

There are many different recipes on the net, but I tried this one first and it works for me and as they say, if it's not broke, don't fix it. I usually wait until I am down to one jar before I make more. Since our washer is always busy, I make 2 batches at a time for my dirty bunch. You can find the recipe at Budget 101. They have lots of other money saving projects you can browse but this is the only one I have tried so far. Also, I use Downy to make my clothes smell yummy. 

I think these would also make great home made gifts.

Have fun!!
