Ok, so I've been gone a really long, long time!  But I'm going to try to be back somewhat, if anyone's still out there!  Hello?  Hello?  :)

So you may be wondering what I've been up to...unfortunately, I can't claim that I've been writing.  I think I've hit some sort of mental roadblock with the third book in the series.  I know how it's supposed to end up, but for whatever reason, I just can't seem to force myself to sit down and write at the moment.  I want to, but I can't force myself.  I will finish it, I have no doubt, but when the time is right.  What I have been doing is a lot of reading and crafting and neglecting my housework! 

I had an etsy store open last summer which had a few pieces of artwork up for sale.  Didn't do too well, which was fine, but didn't give me the gumption to want to keep at it.  Recently, for whatever reason, I seem to have been bitten by the crafting bug, as my mom would say, and I can't seem to stop making stuff!  So I reopened my shop and have been having at it.  I've got some random items on there, as well as a lot of fun coasters...

and flavored sugar cubes.  So what does this have to do with all of you?  Well, a.) I renamed my shop with a name with literary ties...The name is FromTheLookingGlass and b.) my most recent new crafting obsession is making handmade scrubs, lotion bars, body butter, solid perfumes, and lip balms...

so where am I going with all this?  I decided it would be cool to name some perfumes/butters/lip balms after certain girls, or characters, in the literary world!  For example, a natural one would be Alice from Alice in Wonderland (because of the name of my shop obviously) or the Queen of hearts, etc. 

So if anyone out there is still reading this blog, or happens to stop by and begins to read this blog, I'm curious (and curiouser) as to which characters you think would be good options to name scents after!  It can be anybody (not just girls) from a book(s).  So far, I'm definitely going with Alice, Gretel, Wendy, Little Red Riding Hood...but I'm looking for other ideas.  I'm tempted to do Bella, even though I know that's probably been done into the ground, or Katniss...So anyone who wants to leave a comment I'd love to hear your ideas!  And then go check out my shop

I only have three scrubs up right now, but I have supplies coming in this week (which I'm dying to get my hands on) so there will be lots of new bath & body goodies posted soon!
