Christine NelsonI've been neglecting blogging a bit since we had our fourth baby this past July. I took some much needed time off from the computer and then we settled into our first year of homeschooling in August. Priorities have to be shifted sometimes and we've had to bend and flex with life changes.

Essential oil classes have been keeping me very busy as well. I've really taken October as a time to focus on building my business and its been a very successful month so far. There is a lot of desire out there to learn more about natural health solutions!

All of the critters are alive and well, although I worry every day about whether or not the turkeys will actually make it to Thanksgiving. They sure haven't proven themselves smart enough to stay out of trouble. Nearly every day they forget they can fly and get stuck behind a fence and pace for hours trying to figure out how to get out.

The fall weather has been fantastic around here, though. Today hit about 81 degrees and we've been enjoying it.

Fall is the perfect time of year for chalk paint projects. Chalk paint is all the rage, and rightfully so. You can literally paint any type of surface, glass, metal or plastic, and turn it into a fun, vintage style piece. The heat of the summer dries the paint too fast, but the cool fall air allows you to paint outside and not get stuck indoors with paint fumes.

I spent a good amount of time last fall painting pieces and re-selling them, making myself a nice amount of extra cash.
