Hand/foot/body scrub
1 cup salt or sugar
1/2 cup olive, jojoba or almond oil
approx 20 drops of essential oil, or to your liking

Put in bowl and mix. Transfer to a pretty jar. (took me less than 10 minutes to whip 4 of these up including decoupaging the lids on the recycled jars I used and writing the labels)

DD just made her gift for DH. Yesterday I asked her what she wanted to give him and she said a shirt with a leaf on it. So we went to the thrift store and bought a solid colored t-shirt. She decided it should be a birch leaf, so I made a freezer paper stencil. Then I let her go crazy with the fabric markers within the leaf shape of the stencil. I went around the outline a little to make sure the edges were clear, removed the stencil, and set the ink with the iron. It took us about 30 minutes and came out really cute.

I sewed up some quick felt mushrooms for my daughter's stocking.

I just made a bunch of these Neck Gaiterswith some leftover fleece.

I am also making some little Tee Bags from some old onesies. I am going to use them to "wrap" some small items.
