Blogging Babes Become Fragrance Designers!

We had such a great time on Saturday at our Blogging Babes luncheon. At least, I did. It was a blast. There were 8 of us at my house, Shellie, Lori, Tristi, Jeri, Candace, Karen, Sandra and Karlene.

We started at 10:00 a.m. with a bruncheon. Karen brought the yummiest chicken enchiladas with all the fixin's. (Don't forget you promised to send the recipe.) Sandra brought chicken legs in the crockpot. Tristi made those wonderful sour cream potatoes (we call them "funeral potatoes" around here). Candace brought 7 layer dip and chips. Lori and Shellie brought meat, cheese & crackers. And Jeri brought the most amazing Razzamatz Dessert, made with berries and cream. It was all delicious. Thanks everyone.

After lunch, Karlene told us about her Urban Botanic business where you can make your own customized fragrances for bath, body and home. Everyone designed at least one custom fragrance that they were happy with. Tristi made two—one for her and one for her Season of Sacrifice book. Candace also made two—one for her and one for her hubby, Alvin. Jeri made two as well—her own, and then she made some lotion from Shellie's recipe.

Karlene talked a bit about networking and said that anyone who wanted to blog about the experience and product, and include a button on their sidebar could have their recipe listed on her website, CustomScentsOnline.com and she'd give them a percentage of the sales of their fragrance. If you'd like to do this but weren't able to make it to the luncheon, just contact Karlene and she'll fill you in on the details.

May's luncheon will be on Saturday, the 17th, location to be announced later. Hope to see everyone there.

That was so fun, Karlene, and we all survived my absence, ok so there were no clean dry clothes, but oh well. So I'm getting my blog post ready so where do I pick up the button? At your site or what?

Sounds like a most awesome time! I can't wait to come to the next one - which, cross your fingers - I'll be able to do!
