The start of a new layout

July 3, 2009 Hell-o I'm here

Hi, welcome to my new site. I am in the process of switching from my "Close To My Heart" site to this Blog. Though you won't be able to order "Close To My Heart" or "Scentsy" from here, you can always call or email me with an order and I will process it ASAP. It just doesn't make much "scents" to pay for a site when it isn't paying for itself.
So without further ado...here we go.
