FINALLY BACK AND STILL TRYING

I know it has been a while since I poated and I apologize..Things have not been going good here and landlord here decided to put the house up for sale and we are desperately looking for a place to live...We need to be out by end of May...Beloit has not been very promising so we are searching other towns not to far (within 30 miles) and doing a lot of praying.
The city came and did inspection of this house and made LL fix a lot of things and he is ticked about having to spend the money so decided to list it and of course he could care less if we have a place to go. It does make me wonder if I can ever trust another LL.

We are looking in a town called Broadhead WI and second choice is Monroe,WI (which is the swiss cheese capitol in the US.)
I have talked to a realtor there and she is checking to see if anyone that has a house listed would be interested in renting or rent to own and have also talked to a newspaper editor and he will be coming some time within this next week to do an article about my soap and also mention that we would like to move to Broadhead. This is kind of like our last hope and just don't know where to go anymore. Have also been trying to sell more of my One Of A Kind soap to add money to moving account so if anyone would like some awesome gardening soap     

This soap is orange scented and testimonies I have received say it gets the grunge and dirt from gardening off their hands better than any other soap they have tried. It is pure glycerine soap and has pumice added to help get hands clean
I sell it for $6.00 for about 4 oz of soap + shipping
I was playing with making soap back in December and decided to make some soap (scented with buyers choice of scent from list I have) and put a picture of someone's Dog on a bar of my soap and sent it to her
She posted a picture of the soap in a Dog group on FB and sales started coming in..One lady just loves soap and ordered 25 bars with pictures of her Dogs and Horses

That is just part of her order..I contacted a Dog kennel and she ordered 18 soap and then another Dog rescue group bought 18 bars for auction she is having in April
I charge $6.50 + shipping for a bar of photo soap with a picture you email to me and I print it and make you favorite scent of soap with your favorite photo, I have a list of scents to choose from.
Don't forget about Mothers Day and a hand made bar of soap for Mom with a nice photo of maybe her Grandkids or maybe she has a fur baby she loves.

Here are just a few more soaps I have sold and they have a Pansey silk flower inside



One customer Loves Butterflys so came up with this for her


The flower soaps sell for $5.00 and Butterfly one is $6.00 + shipping
If there is something special you would like just let me know and I will do my best to make it for you
Please place orders soon so you can get your soap in pleanty of time for a special Mom and also make some nice bars of soap with special scents for Dad I will accept PP as a gift or MO and soap has to be paid for in advance for special orders.
I also donate a portion of each sale to help a pet in need.
Please keep us in your prayers that we find something soon. We will need to pay to rent a U Haul and also help to load and unload our belongings. We are in our 70's now and just to hard for us to do it ourself again.
For some reason sometimes comments go in my spam but I will check often for comments from my blogger friends..You can also email me through here...
Hope to hear from you soon and maybe I can come back and blog again soon with some good news

It's ME Annie and I am SPECIAL

Hi Everyon.....It is ME...Sweet Little Annie and I am SPECIAL (I know cause Mom says it a lot)...Now that all my sisters are done bragging about themselves I thought I would update you all about what is going on at "The Huggins Household
Here is a picture of me so you can see how sweet and special 
                                                     

Mom has been busy making her own hand made soap and she figured out a way to put photos on top of the soap....she even made a cute bar with me and Bianca plus a lot of photo soap for other people...here are some pictures of them



















Wow..Thats a lot and she has more but told me that is enough for now..She can make you some really cool soap and even put a picture of your Dog or a loved one if you want her too...She is even going to be making some for a baby shower and will put photos on that too. A lot of people Love her gardening soap and also the orange soap to wash your hands when they smell from onions or other smelly things..Look at the cool soap she is making to hang outside to use whan you work in the garden

AND  the best part is...she donates part of ALL her sales to an animal in need of help with meds and other things
OH..she keeps telling me I said enough for now and she wants to go lay on the bed and watch T V...I bet I can beat her in there LOL..But she said she would post just 2 more photos for me so please leave a comment on here and let her know how much you liked my post (and ya..I am the fur baby that has seizures but no big deal cause Mom and Dad take good care of me ...and my sisters)
..Night everyone..Till next time..this is Annie signing off and now I am going to run and get in bed and lay right where Mom is supposed to lay but like I said..I AM SPECIAL

MY TURN AND I AM THE OLDEST

Hi everyone..I think it is my turn to say something I am the oldest Fur baby in this house..I was 11 last September and I also think I am the best Looking..what do you think..Here are just a few more pictures of me so you will see what I mean
                                                  
 This is me and my younger Sister Annie enjoying the weather in 2004 in Belvidere IL
 This is me with my chew in 2010 laying on the couch..It sure was good and I wasn't about to share
 This is me and Annie and I am on the right and I think I am cuter
 This is me and Annie snuggling a few years ago but we don't do that much anymore....I think maybe I am just getting to old...Did I tell you I was 11 last September :)

 Here I am enjoying the view and Maggie (my big black sister) is always hogging the couch

 I like the way Mom had someone do some special effects and put us in that relly cool cabin...I wish we really had that Cabin and Mom and Dad would like it too

 Opps..I pulled the cover half way off the couch but ...that's 
O K...Mom will fix it when she sees it and I will let her think Annie did it (Annie is spoiled more than me ha ha)

 I do NOT like having a bath but like it when Dad rubs me all over with the towel (He uses 3 or 4 towels to dry me)..mom gives us the bath and Dad drys us so I stay mad at her for a few hours but not him

 Then I just get to relax and wait for someone to bring me a treat (I like the ones Mom makes home made the best)

 This is not my bed but I can lay on it whenever I want and I wish they would put a pillow under my head too. Not real comfortable like this

 Just trying to look cute so Mom will just get done taking pictures and leave me alone for a while
 Just like the 3 bears...I think this bed is tooooo small ( I think it belongs to the cats anyhow)

 But laying on Mom and Dads bed is very comfortable

This just looked like a comfortable place to lay and it is the top of the crate and was a job getting up there
Well.....I guess that's enough about me for this time so will tell you all what else is going on...when we met the Landlord here we didn't like him and we tried to tell Mom and Dad but they ignored me...well now they are finding out why we didn't like him. He sent a letter to Mom and Dad a few days ago that he is changing the lease..yep raising the rent and he has listed the house for sale. It is pretty cold and nasty this time of year here in WI but he thinks he can just do that and then if someone wants this house he says we have to move out in 30 days. It is to cold to drive around looking at other houses let alone loading a truck and moving. I am sure Mom and Dad will fight with him over this and make sure we have a better house to go to..NONE of us liked it here and this Landlord is really a slumlord. Boy...I could tell you lots of stories about him but will save that for another day.
Mom and Dad worry about us 4 fur babies all the time and they hate it when he says he needs to come and fix something and he never fixes it...he just trashes stuff and leaves. We will all be glad to get out of this place.
The give away Mom and Dani and lynn had is over but they are excited and planning now for one in February so be sure and come back for more information about that.
Well I guess I better sign off for this time (Mom just told me she is getting tired of typing all this and she wants to go to bed) Maybe if I hurry I can beat her to the bed and hog her pillow..Night Night everyone

HEY MAGGIE,,,IT'S MY TURN TO SAY SOMETHING

Hi everyone..Maggie trys to get all the attention but I have something to say now...First of all would like to remind everyone to hurry up and enter the give away that Mom and Dani and Lynn are having...they are each giving away 1 awesome item they have made with their own hands and remember that if you don't win you can still visit there Etsy shops and buy something and really reasonable prices too.
Mom is making us some special shampoo and I Hate getting a bath but might not be so bad with the new shampoo. She said we need our nails trimmed too and I do not like that either...she said I am like a bull that is getting branded and I won't just lay there and be a good girl...I just do not like them touching my feet but they can rub my belly if they want.
I sure will be glad when all the snow (and mud) is gone so we can go out and sit on the swing with Mom and Dad..I can spend 2 hours looking up watching for squirrels (that is what Mom says but I think it is only 1 hour)...isn't that a cool picture of me on the swing with Mom and Dad looking for squirrels...they aggrivate me a lot and Mom hopes I never catch one...she said it could hurt me a lot.
I guess we were pretty upset when Dad left in a red car with my human brother Mark..we love Mark but we were not happy that he took Dad away for 24 HOURS. We wouldn't behave and kept opening the LR curtains and barking out the window. When Dad left there was 2 bowls of food on rug but we did not eat even 1 little piece (and everyone knows that fat little Maggie will woof all the food when she gets a chance) but when Dad walked in the door and we knew he was back home all 4 of us ran and ate and emptied the bowls and jumped up on Dad and Mark to let him know we were happy he was home 
Dad went for regular check up this morning and was good news. The Dr took him off of one of his meds for Chlesterol because it was good and it is because Mom made him go back on the Shaklee suppliments..She said it doesn't matter how much they cost because they are safe and all natural and not a Drug...so now everyone is happy here and I sure hope Dad doesn't leave again (or Mom) unless we get to go with
See how happy we are when we get to ride in the car..Our little white sisters are laying down sleeping but we like to see where we are going and look at the scenery...till next time..hope everyone is staying warm and looking forward to spring like we are.

 This is Bianca and she was already 11 in September..She is grouchy a lot...maybe because she is getting old...She does NOT like to have her picture taken, can you tell by that look on her face
