Yahoo Finance link and Homemade Laundry detergent


If you are here because of the yahoo finance link Please note that I am not Danielle from Blissful and Domestic. I am not a stay at home mother, and I am not living off of a income of $14,000 a year. Danielle is a very sweet girl who helped me out a lot early on. I took down the post for the home made laundry detergent due to major traffic that caused my blog to crap out.  I did not think up that recipe, I found it on pinterest and shared it. I don't know who the first one who thought of it was but here are links that you can find with the recipe:

  2. I never answer these blogs but I had to say "You Go Girl!" to you. I loved your homemade soap post. Don't let the jerks get to you. Some people are just rude and should get help! I learned to sew in 7th grade (a middle school class) and fell in love with it too. I haven't sewn in years but I learned a lot in just a few short months so your idea to maybe take a class sounds like a good idea. I even still have my sewing machine from 8th grade (almost 40 years!). Keep doing what you love and keeping posting so people who appreciate those kinds of things can enjoy! Maria LaRosch, Texas

  3. oh dang it all ! I landed here due to an erroneous link and now you are leaving.

    Hugs and all the best. You sound like an amazingly interesting person. Love that you are feisty and know your own self. It is the hardest road to walk - being uppity and taking no prisoners.

    Cheers !

  5. Girl...you are a hoot! I too just found you, was curious about that homemade laundry detergent and wound up reading part of your blog. I too have often wondered why is it that some people just feel the need to say hurtful things. Well...the reason is this: In order to make themselves feel good they have to tear other people down. Frankly, I "ain't" got time for folks like that. Or as my mama always said, "I wouldn't even give 'em air in a jug."
    You look like you are a wonderful seamstress. I sew but I don't make clothes, I make quilts.
    You just keep on being you!!

    Keep on keeping on!

  7. I found your blog through pinterest. Can't remember what exactly. But I was drawn in by your dry wit and the fact that my newlywed best friend is experiencing the same medical issue as you. I enjoy your blog so much I subscribed and I hope you are able to come back soon!

  8. another suggestion to go along with the home made laundry detergent. in you last rinse use a 1/4 cup of white vinegar. it is a excellent as a natural fabric softener! and it's a natural styain remover!

    1. Glad I found Amy's site & appreciate her tips about sewing. Can you suggest soemthing that will get rid of the smell of fish oil in some clothes? I bought Febreze laundry Odor eliminator professional strength & it worked for a month. The the fish oil smell came back. Any advice on the fish smell odor would be greatly appreciated.

  9. Amy Kay writes: "I, however, am not a sweet girl." Yes, that is obvious. Congratulations on being an egotistical, self-centered asshole.

    1. wow, totally uncalled for, it's a blog, you don't know her personally and not everyone can be as "sweet" as the person with this kind of reply

    2. I agree with the egotistical, self centered comment. You could take the traffic as a good thing and do something good with it (to get your voice heard)...but instead, you take it down and have a mean voice....did you create a blog so that when it became popular, you would just shut down and run away? why did you create the blog in the first place if you do not want people to see it?

    3. youre both idiots. i dont think she was intending it the way you took it. what, you wanna whine that you dont get that? did you know if you can't competently keep up with social norms, context clues, insinuations, and sarcasm it's considered abnormal and indicative of deeper issues, such as asperger's syndrome? are you just choosing to be so narrow-minded or is this actually an issue for you?

      you didn't even read her post, you pompous, hypocritical, pretentious buzz. NOW THATS MEAN. i never once thought she came across as mean, you can argue about that all day but ultimately that comes down to subjective interpretation and perception. youre not god so dont act like you know it all and say, "WELL IT WAS OBVIOUS SHE WAS BEING MEAN SHE SHOULD TALK NICER!" like i said not everyone feels the same way as you. im an example. out of all the people in the planet i doubt id be the only one. so you take your perception and treat her like your perception is a concrete truth, and its not. get off your ego.

      she provided her reasons, and beyond that, she doesnt even need to. even if actually WAS only leaving because of negative attention (which she wasnt, if you read), who cares? who the F are you to criticize someone for that? everyone knows that there are people like YOU everywhere, in person and on the internet... at 24, im pretty sure she knows that. she knows she cant run away because ppl like you exist everywhere. but someone can still do what shes done, and be above the behavior and attitude you perpetuate to her. were all humans, and some things we just dont need, even if we can tolerate them. im not saying this is is the case (BECAUSE AGAIN IF YOU READ YOUD SEE SHE PROVIDED OTHER REASONS FOR LEAVING, BEYOND YOUR COCKY ASSUMPTION, YOUR COCKY ASSUMPTION BEING THAT SHE WAS LEAVING BECAUSE THE SPIKE IN ATTENTION. IM EXPLAINING THIS CAREFULLY FOR YOU), but if the attention was why she was leaving, whos to say its not just because, while she knows shes above such trashy antics, she just doesnt need them in her life? and at 24 is old enough to get give a F about your judgment, what you think, pleasing you, or proving herself to you. she doesnt feel like opening her computer to see a bunch of junk all of her screen. like having a mosquito buzzing in your eye. you can handle it, but you just dont need it. if you walk away from that mosquito and it gets pissed, who cares. its the mosquitoes problem.

      rise above. you vibin LOW.
      yeah, i was mean. you think i care? its not like im gonna read any of your replies anyways, just as i doubt he read mine

    4. If you would learn proper English, grammar, punctuation, capitalization, etc. then maybe I would be able to read what you are trying to tell me, but your grammar sucks! I can't even read past "youre both idiots." I think you are the idiot! Go back to school to learn how to write!

  10. Amy darling, do yo thang, and let the haters hate!

  11. Dear Amy: Found you through Yahoo. I think your blog is fantastic, don't give up based on a few negative posts. I often roll my eyes at the comments from all yahoo new articles because the people commenting often think everyone is entitled to listen to their ridiculous negative opinions -- always negative and abusive. Enjoy the new followers who like you, ignore the idiots who post nothing but crap. We ALL roll eyes at their bullshit. Some people just have to be assholes, you are not one of those people. You are probably a "sweeter" girl than you think. Best of luck to you.

  12. Honestly, I see lots of people take credit for others work unintentionally & it is very very cool of you to forward the traffic & credit to where it's from.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Oh, girl. I'm both laughing and shaking my head in sympathy with you right now. I,too, found you through the blasted Yahoo link. What is most definitely a pain in the neck for you has just made my day. I'm your newest follower. You're a younger, sassier me. I love your sense of humor and movie & TV references (although you are much too young to know a bunch of them, Nick at Night much?). And most of all I love your Mad Men skirt and pic (and I don't even watch Mad Men).

  14. I think you are a sweet girl! People are just very ugly creatures.

  15. Your blog is wonderful. I found you through the link on yahoo too, but I am happy that I found you. What an inspiration you are. Do NOT let the haters effect you. They are just unhappy in life and can not appreciate someone who is happy!

    You may want to stop, but I will not stop reading your older posts and continue learning from you. Sometimes when people find you by accident it becomes a blessing.

  16. Yet another who found you through the yahoo link - and fell in love with your blog!!!! I hope you will just be on a short hiatus - I love your sewing (sewing is my real passion, I own 5 sewing machines and 2 sergers, and use them all, ack!) I think you're beautiful and sassy (Love that!), and I love your refashions - ignore the haters, they're probably commenting from their parents basement while they pick at the latest crop of back acne. I hope you're back soon ... regardless, I wish you all the best!

  17. I raise my coffee cup to you, sweet Amy! Please do not go!!!!!! I, also, stumbled upon your blog and found it fascinating, witty, full of great information and would hate to see it go. I would love to see it stay so I can share with others for the sheer witiness and wealth of information. Thank you for everything. (((hugs)))

  18. Found you now!!!LOL Think I will stick around too. I Love to sew, but get side tracked a lot. I'll bet you will keep me interested. Thanks for being YOU.

  19. Dang, Amy!

    You sent me a ton of traffic so I came over to meet my soul sister and now you are taking a break? :(

    But I hear ya about being to exhausted. No one knows better than another blogger how exhausting this job is.

    So take as much time as you want. But I know you. will. be. back.

    Cuz, I know DIY'ers. We are addicted to this stuff. The next time you make something beautiful, you'd be like, "Oh, I have to take pictures and say this and that...." And before you know it, you'll be logging in.

    And we'll be here, waiting for you, with our scissors sharpened and sewing machine ready to go!

    P.S. I learned from early on that you basically have to ignore all Anonymous comments because they are all cowards with no balls. But I'm sure you know that and also that they are talking about the person in the Yahoo article. And if they could READ, they should know that you are not Danielle.

  20. You have a great blog! With the internet, it is hard to 'claim' anything but sharing something you have found is always wonderful.

    I have a recipe on my blog and others have shared links there:

  21. I found you via Yahoo. First, yay for you for crediting back to the sources. I try really hard to do that in my blogs. Next, wow, I just found you and you're leaving? I can't blame you after reading the comments. In 2003'ish, I had a blog with a pretty large following. The comments got to be too much. So many people with so many opinions... not many of which applied to reality. It was painful to read. I hope you're able to come back but until you do, I'm going to stick around and poke through your work! I like what I see so far!! I'm sending best wishes your way. Hope to see more from you soon!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Oh, by the way, if you ever want to post your DIY's on my blog, hit me up. I'll pay you to post on my blog.

    And I never had anyone to blog for me - free or paid.

    That's how good I think you are!

  25. Hello Amy,

    I am yet another person who happened here from a "faulty yahoo link" but think that you have a wonderful blog. Don't change because of a few lemons! I hope you make a lot of lemonade in spite of them.

    All the Best!

    1. Hi ya'll I too happened upon this for the laundry soap to make. Gosh I read sooo much. I enjoy reading blogs that are enjoyable & learn how to make different items. I do a lot of DIY's myself-Got 2 antique wood doors painted them red then set them on top of the 2 painted sm. metal file cabinets black & put 1 red door down for desk & other red door above now have a big desk for printer & all the stuff, cost red & black paint.The doors came from family(really old)& file cabinets free.Just FYI. Have a Great Afternoon! I will be back to talk.Janice

  26. I too am coming to thank you for the traffic bump by linking to HowDoesShe's recipe. :) You rock. Sorry people are giving you grief for whatever they are giving you grief for. I've learned NOT to let it get to you. Blogging has it's hard days, but you have to ignore any and all negativity. Thanks again for the link over. Shelley :)

  27. I've only recently started following you so I don't want you to stop posting. I DID NOT find you through the yahoo article. I found you through the refashion co-op blog. I love reading your posts and your blog has inspired me to dig out my sewing machine and attack my clothes. Don't go because of a few knuckleheads. Continue to post to spite them. Whatever you decide, I'm a fan of what you do!

  28. i am really sad to hear that. i for one enjoyed your posts and saw it for the first time a day or so ago, i went back to get the exact recipe for the detergent and i see this..so sad.. please dont take the ignorance of those who choose to try to speak and know that there are many more that appreciate what you have done.. thanks debra in florida

  29. I for one would be quite pleased if you were to return! I do, however, completely agree with and understand why you might not. Lol, People suck! It seems to me that people have a much easier time picking on others, since that means they don't have to think about how much they can't stand themselves! Now, that being said I also really hope you know how rare it is to gain a ton of followers because of an article. There has to be something people are drawn to or they grab the recipe & leave. Yes, there will always be aholes with opinions. But those opinions draw attention. "All press is good press" & all. I found your blog because of the same laundry dtgt. thing, but I followed you because I thought I could learn something from you. Maybe you became well known from another persons article..but seriously Who Cares! She sighted you and you sighted someone else. Welcome to the 21st Cent. Everybody get's famous from someone else, lol. That doesn't mean you don't deserve it. You want to still enjoy writing the blog...ignore the idiots! It doesn't say anywhere in the rules of owning a blog that one must respond to all comments. Your fans will usually do that for you. I wish you much luck and definitely more free time! & Much apologies for the amount of stupidity that blots out the intelligence in this world!
    Sincerely, Alexandra

  30. Amy I don't know what to say. My heart breaks for you right now. I am so very sorry for all the trouble that post has caused you. I never knew they were going to link it. I asked for it to be taken down. I do think though you should take it as a blessing. New people are finding your fantastic blog. Don't listen to the naysayers. Amy "no one can make you feel inferior without your consent". Know your worth and how amazing you are. I believe in you and would miss your blog if you stopped. Please come back when you're ready. Again I am so sorry for all for this.

  31. Sorry Amy, I just came for the soap. I will unsubscribe from your blog, asap.

  32. Hi, I came here a couple of days ago for the soap, and have been in love with your creations since. I am a poor as can be 26 year old girl, haven't had help from family for seven years, school has never been an option because it would mean giving up hours that go towards paying rent and food. I am waiting for police academy because until I can get a good job not requiring school, then I can afford schooling for licensed veterinary technician. I tell you this so you realize how much your blog has inspired me. I haven't bought any clothes in years. There is a thrift shop about 15 mins away from me, and on Thursday me and my friends are going. My first few creations will be sloppy (going by hand) but with some phone calls to my mom for advice, I cannot even begin to tell you how excited I am. You have inspired my friends and me (we were discussing and viewing your blog yesterday at work) and I really hope you don't stop sharing your witty, hilarious, and instructional tutorials and pictures. Thank you though, even if you never post again, your previous entries have helped me immensely. Hope your week gets better : )

  33. Amy, came for the soap recipe and ready some of the comments. You are a talented person and wish I could be as talented. I have been wanting to take up sewing again. Unfortunately, my sis-in-law gave away the (3rd) sewing machine she was going to give me, so I'm on hold until I can afford it. Don't let the ignorant assholes get you down. We all deal with them in life and it's hard not to take it personally or feel badly. Some people like to feel better by making others feel miserable - don't let them win. My mom always said if you don't have anything nice to say, then shut the fuck up! Just remember the good outweigh the few, or the one. What other people think, doesn't matter.

  34. Why miss out on such a great opportunity?

    Get some new readers for yourself.

    Don't be a spoiled brat, darling. Why be unhappy with something positive that so many others wish they could have - national visibility?
