Howdy friends! I have some pretty amazing news to share with you today.
After almost ten years of blogging, writing, and DIY formulating I am finally working on a completely freelance basis! That's right. No more day job. Between a small amount of income generated here on MMG, working as the editor and author of The Natural Beauty Workshop, and picking up assignments for blogs and magazines whenever I can, I'm able to do what I love best as my full-time gig.
Speaking of gigs, I'm thrilled to announce that I've been taken on as a part-time contributor at for one of my very favorite blogs, A Beautiful Mess! I shared my first post with them last week - a tutorial for DIY Crystal Soaps. Keep an eye on ABM for more of my DIY projects coming soon.
The folks over at Lemi Shine, a local maker of natural home cleaning products sent me a free box full of goodies to check out. I'm looking forward to testing these out - or to be totally honest, I'm looking forward to my husband checking them out. He's really the clean-freak of the family.
I'm not quite as enthusiastic about keeping things spic and span. But, when I do tidy up I much prefer using natural and plant-based products. This bundle of Lemi Shine goodies smell great and are made with ingredients that I feel comfortable with. Visit my Instagram to enter to win your own box of Lemi Shine products.

Paperless Post gifted me with some complementary credit for their digital greeting card and invitation services. Their cards (both print and digital) are exceptionally cute, so I had fun picking out little hellos for friends and family. I might even splurge on invitations for CC's birthday in May. They have several different dinosaur options that would be really adorable.
Check out this card I made for Scott Bobleo!
