Lets learn a little about "Zim's the Company"

Zim's Crack Creme® was developed by a pharmacist in Austintown, OH. Local cement workers frequently visited the pharmacy, complaining of dry, cracked skin; the cement business took its toll on the workers' hands and feet.
The pharmacist saw a need, and began developing an all-natural, herbal-based liquid formula designed to help the cement workers. This formula became what was called "Cement Workers' Lotion."
Cement Workers' Lotion was sold locally after World War II, and it earned a strong and loyal following. After many years, the product was renamed Zim's Crack Creme® and introduced on a national level.
This all-natural, pharmacist-developed formula is still offered today, along with a full line of natural skin care products under the Zim's® name. Zim's Crack Creme® can be found in nearly every major retailer in North America.

​Undeniably Chosen​ cover reveal for ​Shelly Crane

Title: Undeniably Chosen (Significance #5) Author: Shelly Crane Genre: Young Adult Romance Publication Date: Fall 2014 Cover Design: Event Organized by: Literati Author Services, Inc.


Ava has watched her parents, Caleb and Maggie, live the perfect fairy tale, the perfect love story, played out in front of her eyes her entire life. Her family is love, life, and happiness. The Jacobsons are everything a family should be and Ava is loved and well taken care of. But the one thing that’s missing from her life is the one thing she’s waited for every day, the one thing her kind knows will make them complete, the one thing they thought was gone and lost forever. Her significant. Seth has lived with the Watsons his entire life. They’re the only family he knows, but he also knows that there are things they keep from him. He knows that they lie and they do unspeakable evil, things from when he was a child that he can barely remember that cling to the edges of his memory. He barely remembers his real mother and all he knows is what he’s told. He doesn’t know what to trust. He wants to believe that the Watsons love and care for him, have his best interest at heart, but isn’t so sure of that anymore when he finally after a lifetime of waiting for her— meets his soul mate, and the Watson’s first act is to try to take her away from him. The Virtuoso worlds collide, hearts are exposed, humans are endangered, and the lives of Seth and Ava are changed forever. They’ll have to love without judgment or reservation, they’ll have to be wise and accepting beyond their years, they’ll have to forgive for things before they’ve even happened, they’ll have to trust without seeing, have faith without knowing, and they’ll have to light their own way in the dark when everyone else is blind to show them the way. And more than anything else... they’ll have to fight like hell to keep each other.  


“I don’t know if I can even sleep tonight,” I muttered and rubbed at my arms. They were restless. “I can already feel myself twitching.” “Tomorrow...” Dad began, but stopped. He sighed forcefully and tightened his fists. “I’ll go find him and make him come here if he doesn’t come on his own.” “Dad, you didn’t see him. He was...” I bit into my lip hard. Just talking about him was making me ache all over. I closed my eyes and tried to breathe. I heard Mom say, “Baby, I think we need to stop talking about this. It’s just making things worse for her.” “I know, but...maybe I should go over there. Maybe I should try to find him and— you know what? No.” I looked up to find him looking down at me. “I’m not going to do that. It has to be his choice until it’s not. I’ll give him until tomorrow to be the good guy. If he doesn’t, then I’ll go get him and make him. I can tell by looking at you that you want to have faith in him.” “You didn’t see him, Dad,” I reiterated. “He wanted this. He was worried about me. He’ll come. He’ll find me.” I hoped. “If what you said is true, then he didn’t choose any of what happened. He’s not a Watson.” “But he’s lived with them his whole life,” Mom reasoned. “We have no idea the things they’ve done to him, the things they’ve made him do. We have to be cautious. You have to cautious.” She went into the kitchen and I heard a pill bottle shake before she came back. “Here. Take these. They’ll help you sleep tonight. They were Grans,” she said softly. I ached as the pills went down. I heard Rodney coming in the back door loudly. Dad went right to him and put his hand on his chest to stop him. They whispered back and forth and Rodney looked at me over Dad’s shoulder. Dad wasn’t going to be able to stop him. He didn’t know that, but I did. “Come on, Dad,” Rodney said gruffly and looked at him right in his face. “Move.” He pushed his Champion gently in the shoulder and I watched Dad’s stunned face as he watched Rodney come and sweep we up in his big brotherly arms on the couch. He said low in my ear, but I knew that they still could hear, “Tell me who I have to hurt. Who is this guy and why isn’t he here with you right now?” I looked at Dad and he looked so amused and bemused all at once. He waved me on and leaned his hip against the counter, pulling Mom into the ‘v’ of his legs so he could wrap his arms around her from behind. I heard her so sigh loud and hated that I was causing them so much distress. “Seth,” I explained. “Seth Watson,” I said with as much gumption as I could muster. His eyes rounded. I told him everything and he tightened his arms on me as he listened. “Okay,” he said and kicked his shoes off the end of the couch. Mom was two seconds from scolding him when he asked, “So where is he? He should be here.” Like fate usually worked, there was a knock on the front door. An insistent knock. Dad shot me a look before taking a loaded breath. I started to shake and stood from the couch quickly. It was him; I knew it like I knew my own name. “Ava, wait,” he told me. “Dad.” “You, sit,” he said in his Champion voice. “I’ll answer and let him in. What if the Watsons were planning something and knew you’d run to the door to answer it thinking it was him? We know nothing about him yet. Until we do, we go at this with caution.” I sighed. I hated that I had to look at my significant with anything but reverence, but Daddy was right. I mean, I was the one that had run right out of the coffee shop this afternoon. “I mean it, baby girl,” he said softly. Rodney turned me to look at him and held my upper arms in his hands. “If he hurts you, I can’t be held account for what I do.” “I love you, you know that?” I replied and kissed his cheek. I tried to smile, but think I failed epically when he put one arm around my shoulders and tugged me close, as if to shield me from whatever or whoever was coming. Dad had to know I was anxious—he didn’t make me wait. He went to the door quickly. I could hear them in the other room with deep, urgent tones. My significant. And then there he was.

TeetherTops Review

TeetherTops are soft, interchangeable teething toys that safely attach to your baby's wrist to prevent any contact with the ground. The colorful designs are soft to the touch and made of 100 percent machine-washable cotton, and are freezable to provide soothing relief of painful teething. Each TeethTop comes with two detachable teething toys and all are BPA free.

I received complimentary product.

Cassandra's Review- The product is great for the baby in your life. I like that it is machine washable, I would not of course use detergent on it. the Velcro is a little rough so you might want to attach it to something else. you can interchange the teethers or just let baby hold one. There is antenna on the product that I would watch the baby does not choke on.

 About the shop and crafts :
 All of the crafts in this shop are hand and heart made using the HIGHEST QUALITY ingredients! I hand make premium candles and holders (wax and glass), incense, herbal mixes, wood work, and glassware and many other metaphysical crafts. All designs have been created by me over the last couple of decades. Printed candles contain some artwork that is mine, some that have been gifted from artists, or rights purchased from the appropriate artist. Please do not use any artwork or designs without contacting myself or the original artist.

The methods used to charge our products were learned from women across the Americas and Europe who were born from a line of high priestesses and medicine women of their communities. I have been a practicing mystic, herbalist, and reader of Tarot for almost 20 years. I have traveled the world studying and researching many different traditions, lineages, and practices. I have worked with many communities as an herbalist, high priestess, and spiritual/life counselor, and now I bring that knowledge to you!
One of the most important things I learned from the women I have studied with is best summed up by Jennifer from "Confessions of a Kitchen Witch":

"True Magic lies within you! All the rituals, oils, herbs, candles and supplies are just conduit's to help bring into focus what lies beneath the surface...that voice we all know, wanting to be released so you can spread your joy and your gifts with the world!"
Cassandra's Review- This is made by a white witch who hand makes everything.  This poppet sells for 14.95. It is shipped in a good packaging and is delivered fast.  I would recommend stopping by Sandi's Etsy shop and picking out a few treasures for yourself or a friend. 

I received a complimentary product.
