A New Obsession, or How Behind I Am on Social Networking

Wow, I keep hearing about Pinterest and never checked it out.  I finally peeked at it last night and now I am obsessed.  Like I needed any other ideas for things I want to make, buy, cook, grow, read, etc.  But I joined anyway. lol

I finally buckled under and joined Twitter.  I had a bad experience getting my Facebook page hacked a few years ago and have boycotted most social media since then.  But you know, it is fun...

Happy Valentine's Day!  Buy your sweetie some of these handmade glycerin and shea butter heart soaps.
