I've just received my January issue of Handmade magazine. It's the third issue since I ordered the magazine and I have asked myself a dozen times why I waited. Maybe because I'm not into making soaps and soap bombs. The thing is it's a lot more than that. I've learned so much about essential oils and formulating in general and Susan Barclay from Swiftcraft Monkey has the very best articles of all. Okay, I'm kinda partial to you...what can I say. I also love the free goodies I receive with each magazine. Who doesn't love freebies! I want to wish you a wonderful Holiday season and a new Year of health and happiness doing what you love. I'm heading over to e-zines to buy some of the new ones. Thanks so much for sharing your knowledge with us.
