A whirl wind of a week...
We have been so busy with new baby, hockey tournaments, visiting, snow, ice and rain. I can't tell how busy it has been.
I have started to put up the Christmas decorations. Not too many but it is still nice. We do have a lot of nice things but add a lot of nice things to a very busy home...
Last night while sitting outside the arena I started to blanket stitch a cute little felt heart. This little Christmas heart is going to be filled with lavender. It will make a nice sachet or I will attach it to a gift, sneak it into a stocking.
I hope you all have a wonderful day.

It is a very cold morning and it makes me think I just might start our ice rink.
Yesterday the day was used up by putting together orders. I run between three places so it seems to suck up the day fast. I will be putting our products in a office/print store that is opening up a consignment gift part along side of their present business. I will give you more details when I learn them.
I had a phone call that my son took for me about joining a craft fair but I honestly think I have run out of time. Our first grand baby is due within the next week. We have a huge hockey schedule as usual. Farming is always never ending, plus Christmas planning for my own family. And, yeah my son and his girlfriend will be home in two weeks, I am so excited over this.
Well I must get productive calls to make, boxes to package and Lavender to smell.
Have a wonderful day today.

Good Morning

An early good morning to all of you!
I am sitting up here just after five am in the morning, toasty warm. The fire is going, coffee is on and I am do a bit of catch up.
We have been lucky with our weather, the snow is holding off. As much as I like the snow, I think it is beautiful and fun to play in. I hate the winter driving. So it can wait a bit more for me.
We have been busy with the Lavender business. Quite a few new ladies have joined our mailing subscription with another one going in the mail today. If you are interested give me a shout either here or at or click onto the web site at and go to the changing of the seasons page and join there.
I hope you use a bit of lavender in your holiday decorations, Christmas time is a wonderful way to try a new Lavender Way. or if you do not celebrate still Lavender adds a very nice feeling to your home.
I hope your day is amazing.

Good Morning
First off I hope you remembered the time change. I didn't! so we have been up bright and early, make that way too early.
It is very cold this morning.
Yesterday was an amazing day. I met so many of the people I keep with contact.
 I met Lavender lovers and even non lavender lovers who were still courtesy and let those of us who's passion is Lavender enjoy it.
The day was big for me as our life is extremely busy so to fit this in definitely disrupted my family. It was however very, very worth it.
I met so many people who I have known my whole life and I met new people. And, I realized I can sure talk a lot.
I have several opportunities to grow, expand but I must tread very, very carefully as I have very little time.
 Lavender is very hands on from planing, planting, watering, weeding, harvesting etc. Then from the drying to the making of the products is all done by me. I only have gardens, not fields we have just under eight hundred plants which is huge for one person but not big for a Lavender farm.
This weekend has given me a lot to think about. I need to decide what I want to do...
So on all these heavy decisions I am off to hockey again. After the Christmas craft fair we went straight to the arena to watch my son and his team win their Midget Rep game.

Have you ever noticed how much Inspiration is around us. In music, in a smile, on the Internet, we are surrounded by wonderful things we just have to open up  and let it in.

A good day to you all.
We have been quite productive over here lately.
 Great jobs being done from cleaning the barn, huge clean ups, my Dad building sheep feeders. All is good. It would be even better if a certain dealership could see it in their heart to hurry up with my darn truck. Ahh it is a nightmare. The bonus to yesterday no truck, no truck to borrow meant no hockey.
We are gathering our stuff, papers, products for the sale. Things are being boxed, priced and sorted. Only one little thing...if I have no truck .... how will I get it all to town....
I do hope your day is wonderful, amazing and full of incredible inspiration.

So come and visit us Saturday, November 5, 2011 Civic Center Merritt

Good Morning
I was up early today before five am! Why I am not sure... I am enjoying a wonderful cup of coffee with lavender honey.
It has been so crazy busy here. And, I am still without a truck. Amazing how when you are buying a truck they promise you the world then it breaks down for the sixth time...and nearly two weeks later... still... no.... truck...
I don't think they realize how we depend on our vehicle if one lived in town it would be really no big deal. Just walk. However nearly twenty miles out of town does make it a bit tricky.
The last of the finishing touches are being made to my Sale items. I worked quite hard last night and managed to get quite a bit done.
Going into a sale is a huge undertaking if your live is already busy.
Yesterday, I finished up the Lavender honey.
Today I will finish up a bit of sewing.
I hope you all have a wonderful day.
Remember to checkout the web site. I have added the Petit Creek Lavender Subscription. I would love for you to join us.

Good Morning
