I have been a busy bee online lately. In addition to my regular bartending and mom job I have been a busy little internet bee. In the past couple of days, I have: My soap shop up and running again though there are a few more bars I need to get up on there. I have put 10 reviews up on Epinions. I put in 3 Marketplace articles in to publishers... And kept up with Mylot... This is more productive than I have been in a long time. How about you? Have you been super productive off-line or online?? Thanks for reading.

I'm glad to see your catching up before you go in. You'll be missed until you come back to us after the hospital. Keep everyone posted. I know I just met you but I can see why you have so many friends on here and people care so much about you. Your just a wonderful person. :) So catch up and have fun!:)

Skinny, I'm so excited for you! You got your soap shop up and running! And next weekend, which is payday weekend, I will be placing an order, guaranteed. I want to try a couple of them, and my best friend is a soap/bath product freak, so I'll order some as gifts for her too. That one with goats milk, shea, and vanilla looks wonderful. And the lavender one too, yum, love lavender. And that ooops I goofed the... one too - too funny, and what a good idea to present it like that! So anyway, next weekend you can fully expect an order to be coming from me, darling. I can't wait to try your products! Now, as to my own productivity, um, what's productivity? No, really, I seem to be so busy, but I'm not sure what really gets done, you know? But I WILL be busy very soon, very busy I think, helping my best friend with her business. She needs me right now, so although it looks a bit daunting, I'll be there, with bells on. Plus, I have several appointments and medical tests and procedures coming up, yuck and double yuck. Unless I push myself, I'm lucky to get one thing done a day - my energy level is so down. But let's not go into that.... You're doing great! Keep typing, keep 'soaping' and just keep being here, ok?

I think that goat milk one is my favorite so far. It's one of my favorites and smells exactly like the Bath and Body Works one. If you do order (or anyone from Mylot) just let me know it's you. You guys get special discounts and I always send free stuff of course. I have so many more to put on there but right now, I'm testing out the scents and stuff to make sure I like them. They are more artsy and really pretty. I mixed different fragrances together just to see what I got. :) I love making soap but putting it up for sale can be draining. I have to get my man soap on there too. Sighhhh....lots more to do but I'm taking a break for now. :) You better be careful pushing yourself and take it easy. Take care of you first always my dear one! I'll always be here and as far as soaping goes, I have been doing it for 22 years- ever since I was little. Yep grandma let me play with lye- LOL!! So I can't stop that anytime soon. There are certain bars namely the Lavender that is a tribute to her and her favorite soap. So just know there is meaning to just about everything I say and do and even my soap! :) Hugs and love!! XOXXOXOXOXO

Lavender was her favorite scent? Mmm, it's one of mine too. And I do know that your feelings run as deeply as my own, and there's always more to what you say and what we see of you than meets the eye, Skinny. You may be skinny, but you have a lot of depth, layers and dimensions. That goat's milk vanilla soap just sounds so wondeful. I'll gladly lose my Yardley Oatmeal Soap! And I like it quite a lot, so that's saying something. Robin, my best friend, is going to love it too, and I love giving her gifts, so this is going to be a great gift source. Um, Skinny? Have you done any work with Gardenia? It happens to be a top favorite fragrance of mine. It's hard to find a true gardenia scent out there, but I'll bet you could do it. Couldn't you? Think about it, along with the other million things you have to think about, ok? Sorry, just putting a little bug in your ear...... I'll PM you and let you know the name to expect on the order, so's you'll know it's me. Kisses, darlin, big, big kisses!

OMG!! I love the last name Nova! :) Reminds me of my high school days. I can probably find some gardenia for you. I haven't used that one but the companies I get my oils from are amazing. Their scents are always right on the money. I only use 3 companies for different types ofscents. So I could definitely find a good one. It takes about 8 weeks or so to make the soap unless I use Glycerin which I love too, then it's a couple of days. I'll look for some gardenia for you. People have been asking on that one, along with Freesia and Plumeria which are also yummy if you like florals. I have 3 different Lavenders I use too. Those are pure essential oils and that Lavender soap, I'm really proud of, even though I suck at cutting soap. LOL The scent of that lavender is insanely sexy. I have a batch brewing that I mixed with pure Sandalwood too. That one is shaping up nicely.:) I'll have gardenia for you when your ready. :)

Luckily I type fast and really like doing them so it makes the time go by faster. Believe it or not, I still have plenty of free time. I'm out of school for the summer so I guess I'm used to being much busier. Thanks for the response.

Lol - thats probably why then - I work full time so don't get nearly as much time as I'd like to just do nothign but relax and be on the net! x

Its in the Early June08 free-for-all. http://www.mylot.com/w/discussions/1550860.aspx But basically a lot of real life happened. Lots of work, lots of site visits. Even a couple of things in between work and fun that took a lot of time and effort. Got two new books plus I've got another visual novel in my possession. And of course there is gaming here and there. Ah that's right, I also need to shop for a new computer and electronics in general so please forgive any major delays in mylotting (what can I say, I don't shop as much but electronics are just great!)

Gotta love electronics...wish I could afford more. :) I already stopped by the free for all, of course! Wouldn't miss it...I'm glad your back and busy. Thanks for stopping by my discussion. It's always good to see you!

Ive seen busier days, but i think you really are a busy bee. Sometimes i have so much things to do online and off line, and away from computer, in the fields that i barely get the chance to sleep for 4 hours. Online i have many sites to attend to, many updates to review, and many emails to write. And i joined mylot 3 days back and got over 100 posts by now. So you know how busy ill be. I am too a busy bee :D

Well currently I am working hard at my Office job.I work for a Company that has deployed me at Client Side to develop some software for them.The time to deploy the same is coming close and I am facing all sorts of problems in getting the software up and running smoothly.So I am pretty busy with this stuff offlate.Apart from that I try to find time writing on myLot though I just post few replies and start discussions.But I won't call myself a BusyBee.I would like to do Multi Tasking successfully but I feel I am not really cut out for it atleast now.Maybe I can sometime soon after learning to do many things simultaneously.

Being able to multi task is key. Not just online but offline too. Your home free once you learn how to do that. It just takes concentration. You'll see once you start to do it and don't even realize that your doing it. Sounds like you have a great job! :) Thanks for stopping by!

What's your craft? Where do you sell? I would try to sell online. It may start slow but it will pick up. Let me know if I can help you in any way. Glad to hear you are staying busy. Thanks for stopping by.

I have been super UN-productive both online and off. It is nice outside, the kids are home from school and I just plain don't feel like doing much of anything lately. We have been taking the kids out and having fun. I did clear out one of my front flower beds a couple of days ago. Then it rained for two days so I haven't been able to do much else with it. As soon as I get that stuff to put down to keep the weeds out I will plant my flowers and put down the mulch. I need to do some online work; but with the weather warming up I just haven't felt like sitting behind the computer.

The weather is finally warming up here in Chicago. It has been horrible here which makes it easier to sit on the computer. But it sounds like you have been productive- kids have a way of doing that to you and gardening is a ton of work. :) Thanks so much for the response.

Good Morning SkinnyC :)))) i have been terribly busy with work, off line that is. The stormy season always brings in a lot of new computer work, not to mention its always time for spring tuneups and virus malware clean ups. There has been a couple of new viruses hit the internet that always makes it interesting as far as work goes... hey what is epinions? I have not had much time for mylotting.
• United States

Epinions is a review site. It is a paid review site. I do mostly beauty reviews and if you do 10 in one month, you get 10 bucks as long as people rate them helpful on the average. Then if you do more- 20 is 20 bucks, etc...If on all of your reviews people rate them very helpful on the average, then they double your money. If you are a good writer and like to review stuff, check it out. If you want opinions on stuff before you buy it- any kind of item- you can go there to read what other people have said about it. It's epinions.com- my name on there is dannigirl5173. Let me know if you come across any of my reviews or you want to start writing there and need help. It's not a referral or anything, they don't do that. Just some info. for you! :) Thanks for coming by!
