Celebrating The Boss

“The best leader is the one who has sense enough to pick good men to do what he wants done, and self-restraint enough to keep from meddling with them while they do it.” ~Theodore Roosevelt

Celebrated on October 16th, “National Boss’ Day” has become an international celebration and is observed in countries such as the United States, Canada, Australia, India, South Africa, Ireland, and Egypt.

Boss’ Day has come a long way from being only a note of appreciation given to the senior in charge to being a mark of great respect on both ends.  The role of a boss was previously just to give orders and supervise work.  Now, it revolves around being a mentor, a team leader, a motivator, and encouraging subordinates to conduct actions in a particular manner to achieve the best possible results.  Guidance and interactions frame a major part of…

New Things Happening…

It’s been a long time since I’ve blogged and things have been super busy in my personal life. So here are a few of the things that we’ve been doing since my last post in June.

I suppose the most thrilling thing that has happened to us was the birth of my tenth child, Jeremiah. He’s the sweetest little thing! Today, for the first time, he gave me a responsive smile. What a heart melting experience. I don’t care how many children you have, that first smile is always so heart warming.  I want to tell a little about his birth story but I’ll do that another time.  I’m just going to warn you that there were a couple of surprises and a few tears.

Since having Jeremiah, I’ve been trying to keep up with orders. We’ve had quite a few custom orders, so we’ve been busy with that. I’m so happy that I have such great customers who were understanding, kind, and patient enough through the delay in getting their orders during my early delivery. I mean, isn’t that cool?

Aside from that, I’ve been juggling my toddlers and have had a lot of support from my older children, who just adore our newest addition – by the way. They’ve been cuddling and loving up little Jay while the middle children have wondered when they were going to get a turn. Like I said, it’s been super busy but it’s also been super wonderful with all this excitement. I’m a doting mama again and this whole experience has made me realize, once again, how wonderful motherhood is again, at all stages.Image

Old Thyme Primitive Scented Pantry Cakes – Colonial Cakes – Aged Ornament

by everythingdawn (11.00 USD) http://www.etsy.com/listing/153843475
This prim cake is what I’d call extreme prim. I’ve been in a country cake designing mood lately and decided to get grungy and get the spices going, and I absolutely fell in love with the outcome!  This one scented in cinnamon raisin bread and you can just set it on a table or mantle and it’ll remind you it’s there.
I’ve been doing these since we placed our goodies in the Wilson Store & Bittersweet Memories last week. They scented the store so nicely that I just had to do more. So here we are! I just listed others on our eBay store so if you want to take a peek, visit us at our Prim Nook.
Stay tuned for more scented desserts. Also join us on Facebook and Twitter  for other blurbs, sales, and cool things.
Until next time,
Dawn
