Exciting and nerve wracking

This week has been exciting for me. And nerve wracking too.




I had a crew of people in my home on Tuesday filming a podcast. I know!!! How cool is that?!! It will be edited and made into a segment all about Old Red Barn Co. I was so incredibly nervous about this. I couldn't sleep the night before. I couldn't eat breakfast. Dude, I was nervous. I was more nervous about this than I ever was about arguing a criminal case before a circuit court judge.

Whew. I'm so glad that it's over and I can eat and sleep again.

Also, this week Gina Halladay featured my headband tutorial at Quilters Buzz. Whoa Nelly. First of all, GINA HALLADAY. And secondly, QUILTERS BUZZ. Wanna talk about a buzz? Try getting news of this in your inbox.





Next week is sure to be a real let down.



Especially since the girls go back to school on Monday.

This may be a dumb question, but I just watched your Carolina Crafting video (again) and was wondering ... What type of seeds do you use for your sugar scrubs? I mean, can you just buy seeds for growing like you find in packages in the store, or do you have to dry them or do anything special to them after extracting them from fruits? Thanks!
