Update on Eczema and Writing - odd combination but hey that is how it goes sometimes...


It has been about 6 – 8 months since I started using Vicki’s homemade goodies.  My hair is fabulous.  I don’t have to use conditioner anymore.  My legs are almost healed; I have some scarring on the one leg that is fading and one spot on my other leg lingering.  I've started using deodorant for the first time in a long time.  It is amazing that I can wear this and no red itchy junk – just clean smelling. 

We are working on building a business for these items.  We’ve started a blog and will have pages with product description up soon.  http://simplynaturalbyvicki.blogspot.com/  It is small still – very small.  We are developing a flyer and other marketing tools.  If you are interested in the products email Vicki at simplynaturalybyvicki@gmail.com

My romance novel did not make it to the next round.  This just means I have to work on self-publishing it this summer.  School is done mid – to end of May so after that I will focus on getting this prepped for self-publishing. 

Good news though – one of my poems will be in the Muse this spring.  I’m looking forward to the reading on May 2 though I’m a bit nervous about reading the poem to a large group of people. 

I’ve also been submitting some of my work to different publications (not too many as I’ve been so busy) and time will tell on these.  I wrote one grant, which I will hear about end of the year and I’m planning to write another that is due in June (I think). 

Finally – after being AWOL from my email for several days I was wandering through and discovered this bit of good news.  My poem that was printed by CC&D Wild Places was read at a poetry reading in Chicago and there is a youtube video of it.  Check it out!    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pMJEfllfhxU

  1. I am sad to have missed out on the samples from G'ma's lunch but I tried out what you gave L and liked. I wish you guys luck with this and look forward to checking out the products. As a member of this family I too have dry/sensitive skin issues. Who do you think we can blame that on? lol. Sorry about your book and Congrats on the poetry progress. Like you I'm coming to the end the semester. I can't wait, work had picked up and I am just plain tired and brain fried. Love ya TJ

  2. I don't know who we can blame but I do know that Vicki's stuff has done wonders for me. If you need stuff for your skin - let us know we will send it to you.

    I totally understand the brain fried and tired as I feel the same way - my work is winding into end of fiscal year, the department moving, and a few other big projects. That made for a stressful week especially with Vicki's job interview and the problems with her traveling.
