Index card a day

I was over at I Hannas blog and came across a post were she is doing an index card a day. I thought that sounds fun, so I thought I would do it too. I am lovin' it so far. I try to do the cards early in the day so I get them done. I started with the 3x5 card size. I was thinking I wanted to get the 4x6 or 5x7 instead. So while I was at the store looking at the other sizes I just decided to use what I have. I am still on the use all the stuff I have first thing. So here is my first weeks worth of cards.

Have a great weekend :)

Sage Love

Oh how I do love the sage's. All the shades of purple are so yummy. They do come in other colors, but I love the purples. I had more of them a few years ago, but with the yard re-do I lost a few of them. So here are my sage's that are blooming now!!!

The first two are not culinary, they are just for show.

This is clary sage. It re-seeds in my yard like crazy.
Clary close-up :)

The standard culinary sage. I use it in my Thanksgiving stuffing.

Close up time ;)

Tricolor sage. I love the tricolord leaves.

Tri close up!

New sugar scrub

I have been needing to make some sugar scrub. I was down to the bottom of my ice cream bucket and that's not good lol. I love it so much and it is pretty easy to make. I know I might seem a little wack, but I use it everyday on my face. I just love the feeling of having that soft, exfoliated face in the morning. I even take some with me when we go on a trip/vacation. I just gotta have it.

The kind I make in bulk is the emulsified kind. It has lots more ingredients than the simple basic sugar & oils mixed together kind. I do like that kind too, I like to trade them off.

The reason the scrub turned darker is because I added some lotion to it. The peppermint lotion I made and showed in a post back a bit. If my scrub dries out a little (I don't put a lid on it in the shower) I will add a little lotion or aloe vera to it.
