and the winners are....

First of all I want to thank everyone for all of the wonderful comments about the soap and dryer sheets... I appreciate them all so very much! I am loving the process of making everything for this new venture and all of your positive feedback really gets me charged up to mix, and fill and sew and everything else that goes along with it. THANK YOU!!! now...

Do you ever let days go by without really paying attention to the calendar? I mean I know it was Thursday, that part didn't get past me. What I didn't pay attention to was that it was the 26th and the day to draw names for the big (oh yeah I said it was big!) giveaway here at 612! Can you believe it? Now I just let you in on a little well known fact around these parts... I can be a little scatter-brained. That's right... I chalk it up to having so many things fighting for attention in my head that sometimes the one that needs the most attention doesn't fight hard enough! ;O
So last night I enlisted the help of my trusty toothless wonder and he was happy to draw the names out of the bucket. He drew 2 names, one for each 100 followers.

So without further ado... here are the winners....
Carole of Maynard Greenhouse and...
Coralie of A Vintage Cottage Home!!! (Max looks a little scary in this one) I think he was just trying to make sure you could see that he has indeed lost 4 teeth this summer!

O.k. ladies if you would be so kind as to send me your addresses (my e-mail address is on my sidebar) so I can send out your packages!

Thanks again everyone for leaving your comments and love. I love you right back!

On a different note all together, can you all keep my Aunt Jane's family and our extended family in your prayers? She passed away yesterday and she will be missed so very much. Aunt Jane is the one person in the family that kept all of the family stories alive. She made everyone in her life laugh out loud. I mean snort laugh, run to the bathroom laugh. You never went to her home without leaving with a full belly and a smile on your face. She was deeply loved and will be deeply missed. On a positive note, she was my moms best friend and her and my mom are I'm sure doing a joyful dance and telling funny stories right now. thank you. xoxo

Thanks for stopping by, Theresa xoxo


  1. Theresa, you can just hear the excitement you have for you soap line! I am sure it will take off and be a big hit. Do you have any Co-op stores nearby that you could sell at. My experience with co-ops have been really good and they are very welcoming to a new eco friendly product.
    OMG, Max is too funny, I am sure he has the family sense of humor that seems to run there!
    I am so sorry to hear about your loss. My thoughts are with you. It must be very hard to lose someone so adored by the family who kept everyone so happy. I am glad you are looking on the other side and thinking of your mother with her. My heart goes out to you!
    Congrats to the ladies who won and Theresa set your alarm for Tuesday so you don't forget, LOL

  2. So sorry to hear of your aunt Jane. I am sending prayers and good thoughts your way.


  3. Oh my goodness! I can't believe I won this wonderful prize! Thank you so much Theresa! And...I love the picture of your adorable Max!!!
    Thank you so much. I am sending you my address in a separate email.

  4. Hi Theresa, so sorry to hear about your Aunt Jane. Sending hugs and good wishes your way.

    Congrats to the winners of your wonderful homemade products. Best wishes, Tammy

  5. First of all my sympathies to you and your family. Aunt Jane sounds like a wonderful character.

    I love the pics of Max. What a cutie!

    ..and if I could not win then I am thrilled my buddy Carole did. She is an absolute sweetheart and really "digs" taking care of our planet.

    Don't feel bad about the memory thing. I almost posted the first Genesis on the wrong day. If my friend Erin had not alerted me it would have been a day late. Darn those months with only 30 days..



  6. I'm pretty sure God loves to laugh as well (after all He gave us a sense of humor) and from what you say, the two of them are probably making Him smile right now. I will keep all of y'all in my prayers. I hope someone chronicled all her stories to share with future generations.
    P.S. Congratulations to both the winners...lucky ladies!

  7. Dear Theresa,

  8. I was sorry to read about your Aunt Jane. She sounds like a wonderful lady! Laughter and a good sense of humor are such wonderful traits and it sounds like she kept the family in stitches. I am sure she will be missed.
