Essential Oils

After lots of online reading (of course..when I get into something, I REALLY get into it and try to learn all I can), I purchased my first 3 EO's from the herb shop today...and tested them out on my Love. He's been a sick man for a few days, taking herbs and homeopathic remedies but gets in bed tonight with a stuffy nose! I was so excited to try this method to relieve his breathing issues...a drop of Rosemary and Lavender oils onto a cotton ball, inhale, and 5 minutes later, breathing clearly! AROMATHERAPY.......loving it! (www.aroma is one of the many sites I've gained knowledge from)

I'll be putting it in all the rooms and using it many other ways, so excited to learn about this. For now, Lavender is taking me away...not Calgon (which btw, probably has SLS,
Parabens, and other harmful chemicals in it)

Successful Shopping = Ideas are exploding

After a trip to Joanns, Hobby Lobby, finally Michaels, all in the same week....I'm exploding and can't get to these great projects fast enough!  Amy Butler has her own SCRAPBOOK paper??????  How could you not be so happy if you have a love for her fabrics?  And LUCKY ME, the pack of 24pages was marked down to $3.99 (that's a low $0.16 per page), so I bought the only 2 packs they had....(hmmm, I need to find another Michael's) 

So I have a few pieces of furniture I've been dying to decoupage, the first being my sewing desk!  WOW, ok, I'm just so excited about that!!!! Speaking of Amy Butler...I just finished making her gumdrop pillow pattern using Olivia The Pig fabrics.

 Being put to good I'd hope'd it be!!!
SO many more fun projects on the agenda...(deep breath), one thing at a time and happy along the way!!!
