Made in America

Made in America

There is a new movement happening, anything handmade and local are hot items these days. You can see this happening online at Etsy.com, your local craft shows during the holidays and your local farmers markets in spring.  Who wouldn’t want something grown or made/crafted with skilled hands from a neighbor?  I know I do! 

I know you’ve seen it.  But do you understand it? The new buzz phrase… “Made in America.”  Sounds great doesn’t it….Say out loud  “Made in America.”  

Ok.. so maybe I should have said “ Buy Local”…  Or what about “Handcrafted,” “Handmade,” and “Homemade.”  I have to ask the big question?  Do you buy local? Or just grab something from the big box stores? 

Benefit Blood Drive

Benefit Blood Drive

 There will be a blood drive to benefit Steve Jones.  He has Myelodysplastic Syndrome and has to have several blood transfusions throughout the course of a week. He also has to have chemotherapy once a month and has been in and out of the hospital since the beginning of the year.

They are selling boxed lunches for $7.00, there will be a benefit blood drive from 2 - 7, and they will end the day with a benefit Sing by South Georgia Quartet beginning at 7 pm.  The church can be contacted for more information at (478) 225-2018 or by email at overflowfellowship@ymail.com.

 

Is Your Clear Soap Better For You?

Is Your Clear Soap Better For You?

At recent craft show I was asked do I carry Glycerin Soaps? And the question got me thinking about how everyone views glycerin soap.  Since I love teaching others about soap and the craft show biz~  Naturally I went into details.  My customer didn’t realize she opened Pandora’s box.  First to clarify “all handcrafted soap is Glycerin soap”, but the one she was referring to was transparent soap.  Let’s go back to the question… yes.. I carry glycerin soap and I also carry transparent soap.  You ask...what’s the difference? Let’s first define what the terms are. 

Update: Flint Energies Power Outages

At 4:30 p.m. , there are 44 members of Flint Energies still out of power.

That's down from a peak of more than 10,000 who have been out since the storm on Tuesday morning. Crews are working at each of the 11 locations where the 44 outages exist, a Flint Energies news release says.

All these locations are in rural areas west of I-75. Full restoration of power is expected before dark tonight.?
