Tom’s of Maine

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Toms of Maine. All opinions are 100% mine.

I think I was 17 years old when I first discovered Tom’s Of Maine in the grocery store. I was already on my own at this time so I wasn’t expected to use the same product my mother always bought and I was curious about it so I bought it. I was actually pleasantly surprised that it had a very nice smell and taste and I’ve used it ever since.

I think my wicked fresh moment was when I realized I didn’t need to spray any chemicals in my mouth when I wanted to kiss someone because my breath was already fresh even hours after I had brushed my teeth. It’s not a very impressive wicked fresh moment so I’d like to hear about yours. Go to the That’s Wicked Fresh contest page and tweet your wicked fresh moment. You could win a $500 gift card for Target and other wicked fresh prizes so what are you waiting for?

Did you know that Tom’s of Maine is on and ? I’m following them because I like to hear when they have new products come out. They also tweet interesting facts about the earth since they are an eco-friendly product.  Plus they’ve been tweeting holiday recipes.  You should give them a like and a follow, it’s worth it.

Getting Ready for the Holidays

This is the image from my webcam to show my progress so far. It’s very hard to really tell what it is at this point because of the angle of the image but it’s a Christmas stocking for one of my relatives. It’s a snowman holding a broom with a mouse in it. The snowman is wearing a top hat and a scarf and he has a squirrel on his shoulder.

There is a deer which you can clearly see then a rabbit next to him but I haven’t finished him so he’s hard to see.  Then to the bottom right of the stocking is a fox which I haven’t even started. Well, I started his feet but that’s it.

When I finish I will post the finished product so you can get a better image. Yesterday I worked on the white of the snowman stomach and I started his scarf which by the way is not an easy thing to do lol.

I have 9 more days to finish this. Do you think I can do it? I keep saying “Oh it’ll only take me a few days” well it’s been a week that I’ve been working on it but because of back problems I can only work on so much of it at a time before I have to stop. Yesterday I drank a red bull and got a lot more done but not as much as I would have liked.

I still have to finish the other stocking that I made for Jordan with the Santa on the front. Since that one didn’t come with the red felt for the back, I had to go buy some at Michael’s. I cut the piece out so all I have to do is sew it on. But I’ll wait to do that when I can sew this one up at the same time. Yes they have to be sewn by hand because if I use the sewing machine it will screw up the pattern because some of the pattern is right against the edge of where I have to sew.

You know speaking of sewing, I wish that I knew how to quilt because I think I could make some awesome Christmas stockings with that. That would be so awesome.

Anyway, I need to get back to work lol.
