Personal news from Mary Helen and a favor to ask. Plus, four new recipes for handmade bath and body gifts!
First things first, I've got some personal news to share, and a favor to ask. After many months of trying, I got a positive pregnancy test this month. (My post on dealing with negative tests could not have been timed more ironically. I actually had to photoshop out the second line.)
As some of you know, this pregnancy is my third since having CC. We lost two, a little over a year apart, and I am more than a little nervous about this one. (You can read more about those feelings in my Mama Diary.) I've decided to try and call on ALL of my strength to support this pregnancy and ask for the prayers of friends, family, and even strangers. If you could please say a prayer, make a wish, or just send a positive thought our way I would be very grateful.
I've been busy lately sharing new recipes for handmade bath & body gifts on The Natural Beauty Workshop and Better Shea Butter. Here's a little sneak peek at my recent work and links to those recipes. I hope you'll find time to whip up some homemade treats for your friends and family this year. If you do, be sure and share the photos with me. I'd love to see your work!
