Bold Red Tent: Review
We first want to thank all the lovely ladies that came out to be a part of the day although we were in the midst of a gas crises! We also want to give a huge thanks to all of the sponsors and helper’s listed at the bottom of this review!
After much planning, buying material, finding the retreat center, advertising and all else that goes along with planning an event such as this, finally the day of our event was upon us.
The night before the event we cooked, s
I can openly admit that I have trust issues. As much as I would love to be more open and allow people to come closer, I simply can not bring myself to do it. I'm suspicious by nature. I've been burned too many times by people whom I thought I could trust, and I'm simply not willing to allow myself to be vulnerable like that again. I suppose the "once bitten/ twice shy" rule applies.
Now, I don't think that makes me a "bad" person or even an unusual person in today's society, but it d
THE BOLD RED TENT Georgia Event
What is a Bold Red Tent?
A red tent…mothers voices…intimacy…truth.
BOLD's Red Tent event concept is simple: gather women under a "red tent" to listen to mothers' birth stories and then record their stories (in film, written word or visual expression) as part of the BOLD Library of Birth Truths. A BOLD Red Tent event is an excellent opportunity for communities throughout the world to be BOLD any time of the year and will s
I can't believe I have finally given in to the Blog age!
I used to say "I will never Blog" I should have known better, I am not at an age yet where I am ready to retreat from technology and pretend that I just can't learn anything else that is technology related. True technology is moving faster than I can keep up with but oh well I will just go slow and be behind the times but at some point I will catch up!
So here I am blogging, hmm, so now what is what I am wondering, I have so many thin
Greetings from S. Georgia!
Beginning this coming week, I'll be in full production mode for the holidays. On top of the scents I normally carry, I'll be adding these new ones to the mix:
~ Citrus Bliss: The base of this soap is Yuzu, which is a Japanese Grapefruit, and it has a very strong and bright fragrance. Unlike regular grapefruit, Yuzu is a hybrid of grapefruit and mandarin, so it's got additional perfume notes. But not just mandarin or tangerine, it's got a grapefruit blossom top
I thought I'd post here our newly updated "About Me" section for our Commerce Membership.
In Granny's Footsteps is a cottage based business located in SE Georgia, with strong roots in the Paulding County area. We are still property owners in the area, and strong supporters of Paulding.com. We spent over 20 years as residents, and have family and many friends still in the area.
IGF was founded as an official business in October of 2006. Before that, IGF exist
I would just like to take this time to thank each and every individual for his/her vote and continued support. I am an extremely hard worker who does not QUIT!
We have a good foundation with our great community. Now, we have to move into the future without leaving our students behind. I will continue to leave my website up for years and look forward to hearing from you and SERVING YOU!
Thank you to all those who prayed, cooked, called, voted, and believed in me.
During a conversation on the board the other day, another member and I started speaking about loneliness in its various forms. Certainly there is the physical state of being alone, but there is also the mental state of feeling alone. Surely you can have one without the other, as we have all experienced that feeling of being in a crowded room, yet feeling mentally alone while surrounded by others. Likewise we have all experienced the solitude of no one around and yet not felt lonely because we
I do not take for granted that the citizens of Paulding County are intelligent. I am thankful for the individuals who are taking the time to find out the truth about our local candidates.
I would like to publically announce that much of the information in this issue of "THE PULSE" magazine is incorrect and incomplete.
I would like our citizens to be aware that the reason this information is incorrect is because the editor of this publication is the incumbent I am running against for sc
IGF's soaps were recently featured in a fellow artist/crafter's blog, and I couldn't be more flattered, or excited about that. This is an IGF first!
Read Shai's Creations July 4th blog:
I believe in supporting fellow crafters and artisans. I love the art.craft community, having come out of the fine arts community education wise. It's a lot of fun to chat and share ideas, and to see what other amazing things creative folks are coming up with. Sh
More and more these days I am struck with the wanning intelligence of our society as a whole. I suppose what grinds my nerves the most are those who continually "play dumb." I always have to ask myself the question, "Are they really playing? And, if they are, then what do they possibly hope to gain from doing so?" I have come to the conclusion then, that one can not simply "play" dumb without actually being stupid. Sadly there are enough folks out there who simply lack real mental capacity-
I'm challenging Sam Clark for Coroner.
Sam's a fine fellow but he's been coroner in Paulding for 16 years and the only change he's made is to start a funeral home back in 1997.
Before that I supported Sam, because he obviously was neutral in the selection of funeral homes but I get the impression from some posts on the guest list ... and other information ... that his neutrality is now a bit strained. (Check the guest comments at http://www.wellham4coroner.com )
This is an impor
I just received another testimonial about my Granny's Pine Tar Soap, and I couldn't be more pleased. It really means a lot to me when people benefit from my products.
I thought I'd share it here as well as on my website:
"I developed rosacea after I had shingles this past year and it totally changed my complexion. The shingles were on the left side of my face and this area was the most affected by the rosacea. My dermatologist gave me a couple medicines and they helped a little bit
I just want to thank you and all your members for their support during this campaign. When individuals choose to run negative campaigns, NO ONE WINS in the end. Thank you for all your calls and emails of support. Some of you have already voted and that is AWESOME. I encourage everyone to do their research to make an educated decision for their candidate.
Please take advantage of our freedom to vote!!! Please visit my website and if you need a sign for your yard

The debate last Friday night gave all 6 candidates running for Post 3 Commissioner the opportunity to address the voters concerning local issues that mattered to them. We were all pleased to see the large turnout. The entire debate will be broadcast on Channel 16, shortly.
The format of the debate was fair and we all received an outline of the type of questions that would be asked several days prior to the debate. We knew that there might be some questions on the
Yes, I know the title of the post is not grammatically correct but --- hey --- it communicates.
So my oldest, Jeremy, is home from Berry College for the summer. Sure, he's been home for a month now but I've been busy (don't ask; details to follow) & haven't had time to blog about anything. Great to have him home. He is nearly 20 now & had grown in maturity so much. He's always been more mature than other kid his age, but now I can really see it. More mature than I was at 20. Good hea
The Paulding County Republician Party will be holding a candidate forum this Saturday. Here is the notice.
Our Next Meeting is Saturday, June 14th.
During the election season, we are moving our regular monthly meetings to the 2nd Saturday of the month. Our meeting place and time will remain the same.
Our June meeting is sponsored by candidate for Sheriff, J.K. Rogers and will feature candidates running for the Post 3 Commission Seat. This is a Special Election to fulfill the unexpir
Why is it that some people have more trouble letting go of things and moving forward than others? It's something about which I've wondered for some time. As I've said before, I am very much a "live and let live" kind of person. What may be your cup of tea may/may not be mine. I truly believe we are only accountable for our own actions and no one elses--we can't really control others, so why try? It is a waste of energy and very non-productive both physically and mentally. It's difficult en
I guess I'll keep a lil blog going and keep track of its growth for the heck of it. Every Friday I'll measure it.
June 6th - pumpkin measured 11" around and 5" tall not counting the stem
June 13th - measures 22" around and about 10" tall not counting the stem
June 20th - measures 28.5" around and about 12.5" tall (not counting stem) There might be 2 others also!
I've heard a rumor that the Paulding County Historic Courthouse is being rented out. I believe that this building should be used for the tax-payers of Paulding County to enjoy instead of being closed to the public. It should be used to benefit the citizens of Paulding County. It could be used as a museum, library, welcome center, historic society, art gallery, or all of the above. It should be used to bring people to downtown Dallas. If money and keeping it up are the issues, i'm sure there are
Once again this morning I'm feeling a bit reflective, and one of the things foremost on my mind in light of recent events in my personal life is the notion of men and women being friends. Friendship is a tenuous thing. When we are young, we make friends quite easily--boy, girl, doesn't really matter. Taking it back to the sandbox... Being in the same place at the same time is enough for us to call another human "friend." Then as we grow up, society teaches us that friendship is a much more co
I hope many of you are planning to attend the debate for Post III Commissioner to be held at Chattahoochee Tech on Friday June 13th at 7pm.
There will be two debates that night. The first is for Post III Commissioner and the second will be between the two candidates for Commission Chairman. Both debates will be hosted by Randy Evans and feature a panel (to be named later) asking the questions. The debates will be recorded for later showing on Comcast channel 16.

Courthouse Tour Supplement
As I said, you have to be impressed with the new Courthouse and Administrative building complex. Overall the planning and quality seems to be very good. There was however, one point that did concern me that I needed to get some more clarification on.
There does not seem to be a Board of Commissioners public meeting room at either building. In asking the “powers that be” why there was no plan for such a room was told first that the Board meetings were going
