I feel like I’m finally getting back into the swing of things on the blog, at home and restocking items at my booth at The Pickers Market. I’ve even started training for a 15K run. I decided to make a scrub that would help kick start my morning routine. This Rise and Shine sugar scrub uses 5 ingredients: grapefruit, orange, clove, oil and sugar.
I didn’t want to give up on the idea of having my own set of moose plates and after searching Pinterest I found a way to design them using Sharpie permanent markers!
. I finally found myself in the sewing aisle of a big box store quickly losing motivation to create. I settled on heat transfers and headed over to the kitchen section to grab 2 packs of flour sack towels.
It’s because of my love for the outdoors that I try to decorate with natural elements whenever I can. I needed a way to jazz up the entry and I decided to make a few white ornaments for the tree.
Now imagine you’re having a good time laughing and talking it up until someone mentions how great it would be to “create a wreath as part of the holiday blog series.” No playing, I almost choked.
As soon as I found these old bank bags this past spring I knew immediately I was going to use them as our “stockings” this holiday season. They were perfection. So imagine my excitement when the ladies of this blog series decided we should include wrapping paper.
For the past few years, I’ve been creating Advent calendars for my family members. They’re not anything elaborate or expensive but they’re definitely from the heart.
