Father's Day Is Coming!!!

We just added Clove Mint Shaving Soap in a cute glass mug with a lathering shave brush to the store at DawnMoodyDesign!

This is a great shaving soap with it's scent of clove and peppermint! As usual, my husband is my guinea pig for all my men's products and he LOVES this shaving soap! He uses it every morning. It works AND smells GREAT!




Clove is kind of a “wonder oil”, and is said to be everything from antiviral to anti-aging.  Clove also has a great “spice” scent. It is a strong spicy scent with a very potent stimulating effect.

Peppermint oil is probably my favorite scent, I think.  The smell is awesome, the cooling feeling on the skin can’t be beat, and the effects of the oil are awesome. Mint oil is very beneficial to both hair and skin and has stimulating effects on both, as well as antiseptic and regenerative qualities.
The smell of both...I mean....come on!

The base soap is a glycerin base exclusively for shaving soap to hold a good lather. One ounce of goatsmilk soap is added for it’s anti-inflammatory and acne treating properties.  It comes in a clear glass mug with a shaving brush for easy ready to go lathering and shaving!

Vitamin E oil c ontains antioxidants and can stimulate blood circulation (which is good for all parts of your body) It is also said that Vitamin E can help prevent premature ‘greying’ and can repair split ends. It also adds shine to hair.
Instructions

  1. Wet your brush under running hot water or fill up your sink with hot.
  2. Make sure the brush bristles have soaked up the hot water. The point is to retain the moisture in the brush so that it gets directly to your face to soften your beard hairs and open pores. So, don‘t tap too much excess water off the brush.
  3. Lather up the soap using circular motions directly in the mug.  After 25 seconds, you should have achieved a thick, warm lather.
  4. Apply and massage the warm lather with the soaped brush evenly across your face in circular motions. This will also increase the lather‘s density, soften your whiskers, and allow them to stand up, allowing the razor to sit close to the base of the hair follicle.
  5. Empty excess water from the soap container and leave it open so it can air-dry.

Ingredients – Glycerin Shaving Soap Base, Goatsmilk Soap Base,  Vitamin E Oil (Alpha-Tocopherol), Clove Oil (Syzygium aromaticum), Peppermint Oil (Mentha × piperita)

TLC and The Fall Of The Duggars (I Hope)

Photo edited by DawnMoodyDesign



It's no secret I loathe the Duggars. Not because the girls can't wear pants or that they don't seem to be allowed to cut their hair. Not because they march to the beat of their own weird drum. Not even because Jim Bob (I feel) is way too involved with his daughters' dating lives in his creepy invading of personal space.

Some would think maybe it's because they have all those dang kids. Nope. That makes me think they need to dial it back a little in the bedroom, but doesn't make me hate them. I don't like that all these kids, I feel, have no childhoods at all. I don't like that they live like they're in an extremely cold and regimented dormitory. As they all walk around with wide eyes, like Children of the Corn, walking smiling and nodding in sequence.....Not even that makes me detest them.

It's weird to me that they have to be escorted on dates by their younger siblings. Then there's the whole 'side hug' thing. But even all that doesn't make me hate them.

What makes me abhor them is this - the way they shove their religious ideals down our throats. The way they accuse every homosexual and trans person of being pedophiles. The anti gay crap they spew makes me want to spew. Tinkering with the idea that a family is ONLY a man, woman and children is not only ridiculous, but dangerous. It's a dangerous ideal because as a whole, as a society....as a PEOPLE we are changing and accepting. Well, most of us are anyway. Then there's the morons like the Duggars who want YOU to obey THEM because they know better. They hide and lie so they can keep their show on the air and pretend they are without mar and what they're doing is THE way to do it while all the while shoving their dirty little secrets under the carpet.

I can't wait until all these kids are adults they come out with books of their own. I know there's a gay one or two in the bunch just waiting to be free. I know there are depressed ones, possibly suicidal ones. We know there's at least ONE molester in the bunch.

They tout on and on about how GAY PEOPLE are a danger to kids when one of their OWN is the worst offender to a child ever! AND WITH HIS OWN SIBLINGS no less!

Forever, I secretly (and sometimes outloud), wished for TLC to cancel Honey Booboobutt. I never liked the idea that the network was flaunting this child on the air. Getting the family to act more and more outrageous for ratings was a dangerous thing to the kids....especially Alanna. Tempted by the almighty dollar is hazardous to a lot of people and especially those who thrive on a livelihood afforded to them by the same thing that is thrusting them into celebritardism. It's a vicious circle. And we see where that gets you? Brainless and cancelled and leaving a mother to make money by making appearances at gross strip joints.

I had another secret wish. That the Duggars would go away and that TLC will remember what those letters actually stand for.

THE LEARNING CHANNEL.  We want to learn, TLC. What the Duggars have been 'teaching' is not it. Get back to your roots, TLC. Stop setting up television shows and making these 'families' go further and further for ratings.

Want to know WHY I'm so upset? Here...read for yourself.

As taken from TOWLEROAD :

Prominent anti-gay reality TV star Michelle Duggar may soon find herself embroiled in a family scandal after reports surfaced that her son Josh Duggar, an anti-gay activist in his own right, was investigated for child sexual abuse several years ago reports NewNowNext.com. Surprisingly, the allegations of sexual abuse come from none other than Duggar patriarch Jim Bob himself who claims he saw his son, 17 at the time, leaving a young girl's bedroom in 2005 and learned that "something inappropriate happened." 

A source that spoke with InTouch claimed that a police report confirmed Jim Bob brought his son into the Arkansas State Police Station and spoke with a state trooper saying his son was involved in inappropriate contact with a minor. However, the state trooper didn't follow up on Jim Bob's statement; the trooper himself was later convicted on child pornography charges and is currently serving 56 years in prison. 

The Arkansas State Police finally brought the case to the Crimes Against Children Division and Springdale Police Department three years after the alleged incident however, the statute of limitations ran out on the case, preventing Duggar from being further investigated. Ironically Josh, now 27, is the executive director of FRCAction, the lobbying component of the fiercely anti-gay Family Research Council that routinely accuses LGBT people of child molestation.

With more information coming in, TMZ says it has learned some of the girls Josh allegedly molested were his sisters: According to the police report, Josh fondled the genitals and breasts of the girls, some of whom were sleeping, but sometimes they were interacting with him ... in one case reading a book. 


There was another reported incident 9 months later. According to the police report, the police were not immediately contacted. Instead, Jim Bob, the dad, met with church elders and agreed Josh should be put in a treatment program. The police report says Josh's mom, Michelle, said it wasn't really a treatment center ... they simply sent Josh to a guy who was remodeling a building to do manual labor. 

NY Daily News adds: Duggar1The family secret finally came out because of the discovery of a letter written by a family friend with knowledge of the incident. The letter was placed inside a book which was later loaned to a member of the Duggar family’s church. 

In 2006, the Duggar family was scheduled to appear on Oprah Winfrey’s talk show. Prior to their appearance, an email was sent to Harpo Studios to alert them of the alleged sexual abuse. The studio then faxed the letter to the Department of Human Services hotline, which led to the Springfield police opening an investigation. But this probe came to an end because the three-year statute of limitations had expired. 

 According to TMZ's account of the police report, one of the Duggar family members told investigators "this entire incident had brought the family closer to God."

Josh Duggar wouldn't kiss his wife before marriage, but had no problem molesting his own sisters. The family slams homosexuals and trans people as PEDOPHILES when they should look within their own damn household. Anna Duggar knew 2 years before they married, yet still married him and had children with this confessed child molester.

Michelle Duggar recorded a robocall that went EVERYWHERE warning parents that trans women are child predators and repeats to 'keep your daughters safe'. When, in reality, she couldn't even keep her own daughters safe from her Christian straight son under her own roof.

And THIS JUST IN - Josh Duggar has resigned from his position at the Family Research Council as a result of the accusations.

Oh how the mighty have fallen.



TLC cancelled Here Comes Honey Booboo HOURS after a photo of June (the mother) photographed with a convicted child molester who wasn't even part of the show.

TLC, you have an ACTUAL child molester on your payroll. 

Once again, those who whore themselves out as the most devout Christian warrior and warns against all the evil in the world by pointing out those who differ from them are the actually the worst kind of subpar human known to man....and little girls.



As statements from Jim Bob and Michelle, Josh and even his wife Anna come out - it neither negates nor excuses ANYTHING this child molester did.

From Jim Bob and Michelle: 
Back 12 years ago our family went through one of the most difficult times of our lives. When Josh was a young teenager, he made some very bad mistakes and we were shocked. We had tried to teach him right from wrong. That dark and difficult time caused us to seek God like never before. Even though we would never choose to go through something so terrible, each one of our family members drew closer to God. We pray that as people watch our lives they see that we are not a perfect family. We have challenges and struggles everyday. It is one of the reasons we treasure our faith so much because God’s kindness and goodness and forgiveness are extended to us — even though we are so undeserving. We hope somehow the story of our journey — the good times and the difficult times — cause you to see the kindness of God and learn that He can bring you through anything. 

From Josh: 
Twelve years ago, as a young teenager I acted inexcusably for which I am extremely sorry and deeply regret. I hurt others, including my family and close friends. I confessed this to my parents who took several steps to help me address the situation. We spoke with the authorities where I confessed my wrongdoing and my parents arranged for me and those affected by my actions to receive counseling. I understood that if I continued down this wrong road that I would end up ruining my life. I sought forgiveness from those I had wronged and asked Christ to forgive me and come into my life. I would do anything to go back to those teen years and take different actions. In my life today, I am so very thankful for God’s grace, mercy and redemption. 

From Anna: 
I can imagine the shock many of you are going through reading this. I remember feeling that same shock. It was not at the point of engagement, or after we were married - it was two years before Josh asked me to marry him. When my family and I first visited the Duggar Home, Josh shared his past teenage mistakes. I was surprised at his openness and humility and at the same time didn't know why he was sharing it. For Josh he wanted not just me but my parents to know who he really was -- even every difficult past mistakes. At that point and over the next two years, Josh shared how the counseling he received changed his life as he continued to do what he was taught. And when you, our sweet fans, first met me when Josh asked me to marry him... I was able to say, "Yes" knowing who Josh really is - someone who had gone down a wrong path and had humbled himself before God and those whom he had offended. Someone who had received the help needed to change the direction of his life and do what is right. I want to say thank you to those who took time over a decade ago to help Josh in a time of crisis. Your investment changed his life from going down the wrong path to doing what is right. If it weren't for your help I would not be here as his wife — celebrating 6 1/2 years of marriage to a man who knows how to be a gentleman and treat a girl right. Thank you to all of you who tirelessly work with children in crisis, you are changing lives and I am forever grateful for all of you.

Not only did the parents and the to-be-wife know about all of this, they hid it all. They allowed cameras into almost every aspect of their lives except this one. And each 'statement' only speaks of Josh's disgusting behavior, how they knew and that somehow God has made it all OK. Not one single word about the victims of Josh's deviancy.

Not a single syllable about how what Josh did to these young girls may have marred them, destroyed them, hurt them. Not a thought as to any 'treatment' they may have gotten.

No amount of modesty wear was able to keep the hands of a child molester off these girls helped. No mass of biblical verse helped keep these girls safe from the destructive mind of a child molester. EVERYTHING they preach against saving our girls kept their own girls safe from the wolf they clothed, fed and protected.

Sickening.


"I understood that if I continued down this wrong road that I would end up ruining my life." ~ Josh Duggar.  YOUR life?  Ruin YOUR life? What about the lives of the victims who are no doubt irreversibly damaged?

It is a sin to be gay. It is punishable by an eternity in hell. There is no kissing or physical contact before marriage. But you can molest your sisters as long as God forgives you? This is forgivable? He's sorry, though. God can forgive someone for sexually violating a child by a sibling?

And what does this say to the victims themselves? What does this do to the psyche of a young girl or woman about her own self worth? Where is help for the victims? No one cares that you feel GOD has forgiven you for fondling the genitals and breasts of young girls and siblings. No one cares, except you.

Sexual abuse should always be reported to the authorities immediately, even when the perpetrator is a minor. There's no excuse for it not to be.

Professional counselors and treatment programs are a must in cases involving sexual abuse. Building a house or manual labor does nothing but weaken the body. But the mind gets no help, no treatment.

It is not okay to conceal a history of child molestation from parents of other children a perpetrator has regular contact with. If someone is an offender, they have an inclination to re-offend. The offender should never, ever be left alone with any other children.

Handling child molestation as “sin” rather than addressing the psychology behind it is a serious problem. The Duggars spoke of Josh’s past wrongdoing as “past teenage mistakes” and spoke of growing closer to God through it. But it appears that Josh never had legitimate counseling or treatment to work through his problem. Some sexual things are normal for a teen to do—say, masturbating—but other sexual things are not typical behavior—say, molesting children—and those things need to be addressed professionally rather than simply as “sin” issues. Failing to do so places other children at risk.

And, by the way, Not ONE statement from the Duggar family mentions any of the daughters. Not one. Do we see where their worry lies? Do you get it now?

Infused Vodka

Years back I infused vodka with Skittles and it came out great. This time I went for 'chocolate cake' and a fruit candy infusion.

I didn't use an actual cake - so the result of that one was less than stellar. But the candy one came out great!

Do You Wanna Build A Snowman? HELL YES!

SNOW!!! We had SNOW today!

Now, now....before y'all start making fun of us rednecks freaking the hell out over an inch of snow that we got - shut up!  Seriously. We will always freak out over snow. Just like you Northerners freak out when it's above 80 degrees.....try 114, hosers. :P

Anywho - back to me. 

SNOW!!!



I died and went to heaven for about two hours today. 


Maple, surprisingly, loved it!
She's scared of everything, so I was pleased. 



It was the first snow for both of my fur babies.


This morning I was on the front balcony. 
The ice was amazing.

Piling up! lol

Maple had a ball. 
Her favorite is eating the snow.

Wee paw prints!

Heading out to the grass!

It got a LOT more snow than this. 

My Valentine's Day decor was beautiful!

Can you tell I was a little excited?
In and out.
In and out.
One set is my hubbies, though.

I could've stood out there all day!

I built a snow man.
His name was Herb.

Later, my wee neighbor Katryna found the remnants of Herb and threw the head
at her mother. 

RIP Herb.
