Soap JelliesOkay yes this sounds unusual, but these are in fact really cool and playful. They make traditional soap fun and more interesting for sure!!

So I'd like to share how I make them and hopefully these will be a fun project for you to enjoy:)
Large Lip BalmLip balms are usually made the size for lizard lips. They are easy to lose too because of their size. With this colder and dryer season, I wanted something bigger. Here is how you can make one too from your excisting ones, or from new ones ! :)
How to Make Natural Tinted Lip BalmMaking your own lip balm is wonderful because you know what ingredients are going in them, and you can control the scents and colours.

Making Bath BombsI made these as stocking stuffer snowmen for my adult children, but they are a treat anytime of the year!

Christmas Bath SaltsI have a long Christmas list and a small budget, so I wanted to make cute personalized gifts that had a lot of bang for my buck. I have a friend that sells essential oils, so several ladies got together at her house for a crafting night to make scented bath products. I came up with this packaging idea.

Homemade Mouth Rinse and Tooth PowderWould you like to stop putting harmful, unwanted chemicals into your body? Would you like to save loads of money every month? Well I did.

Ribbon HeadbandsI have tried three different styles of ribbon head bands. You will have to decide which one works best for you. Measure your ribbon a little over 1/2 a yard around your own head or head of the person you want it to fit so there is about 1 - 2 inch space between the two ends.
