Random post: Catching up with old friends, Winter flowers, Spotted Cow Soaps

I've been on Facebook for quite some time now and it never ceases to amaze me how that site provides instant access to so many old friends. It just never seems to stop. This past week, I found several people I went to junior high with as well as my best friend from my freshman year of high school. I've also realized the more time I spend on Facebook, the less I get accomplished during the day. It's still a fun site regardless-you just have to learn to limit yourself.

As many of you know, I'm a member of the Etsy Bloggers Street Team. Every month, our team holds a blog carnival twice per month, and also chooses a featured team member. We have to participate in at least one blog carnival as well as write about the featured blogger of the month. Here are my posts for December:

Blog Carnival topic: Winter flowers

I haven't really put a lot of thought into flowers that thrive and grow during the winter, but I'm sure there must be many. After Googling, "winter flowers", I realized there are tons of beautiful winter flowers. I just so happen to love Orhids and I found out that White Dendrobium Orchids are winter flowers! Aren't they gorgeous?

Our featured blogger for the month of December is Spotted Cow Soaps . Ms. Moo is the amazing lady behind Spotted Cow Soaps . Her blog can be found here. Upon visiting her Etsy shop, I discovered that all of her soaps are handcrafted in the heart of Vermont. You can find a variety of items in her store including bars of soap, crochet bath accessories, soy candles and more!

You can get this amazing sugar scrub for $7.50. It looks good enough to eat!

and this Sparkling Champagne Body Lotion Parfait for $8.50She also has tons of crocheted bath items as well as amazing handcrafted soaps. So what you are you waiting for? The holidays are just around the corner. Get on over to Spotted Cow Soaps today! She gives a free sample with every order!
