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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
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
