Pre-Order Drawing - TEH Soap

Today we're previewing another one-of-a-kind, only-get-it-here prize.

A trio of molded goddess soaps.
When I help my sister make soap for her biz, I sometimes put the leftover soap from a batch into a mold.  Sometimes it's several different kinds of soap. We use them in our family homes or for personal gifts.  We have many interesting molds that we've collected over the last 20+ years of soaping.
So one lucky person will win this set shown above.  Good luck!
What is this all about?  See below.

Pre-Order drawing - The Essential Herbal

Today I get to preview one of the prizes I'll be offering for the November 10th drawing, where all those purchasing a copy of "Through the Seasons" are in the running for every prize we're showing all month long.  I didn't know I had these, but found a very small stack underneath the old typewriter.  So, there will be 5 winners of our first ever issue.  It isn't pretty, but it IS rare.  Only 200 were printed.
For the first couple of years, there were only 16 pages.  For the first issue (and only the first issue) there were three of us rolling out the magazine.  I was the only one really interested in continuing, and that was that.  As they say, "we've come a long way, baby!"

If you're not sure what any of this is all about...
