January is the start of a new, shiny year. It's time for fresh starts and a chance to try something different. Like a new blog!
It's also Hobby Month. Hobbies are an interesting thing for me. Celtic Chairde started as a renewed interest in all things herbal, it was a hobby I had when I was younger. That renewed curiosity led to me finding a few interesting recipes for salves and lip balms.
At that time, almost 15 (gulp!) years ago, Cindy and I would get together every couple of weeks with the intent of finishing up some of those half completed projects and hobby pieces we had. You know the ones. A partially finished decoupage kit, some half done plaques, crocheted pieces that still need to get made into something. We all have something like that tucked away. After working on those things for a few months, we began to look for some new playthings. We decided to try a few of those herbal recipes for body butters and lotion bars and lip balms that I had uncovered.
