Lily of the valley

My friend Rhonda wanted me to make a soap for her, to give to her mother for her birthday. I had Rhonda help me with mixing the colors.

I love how the colors pop :)

Table runners

Last week my friend and I went to a local craft show. Robin saw a cute tablerunner. I told her I had made the same runner, that there is a tutorial for it on you tube and I could make one a lot cheaper. So we went into Joann and they happened to have the fabric we wanted on sale, for 65% off. So we ended up getting fabrics to make two tablerunners for just under 6 bucks. Sweet!!!

Here are the ones I made.
This one is for Shantel, Robin's daughter-in-law.

This one is mine :)

These were fun and easy to make. I think I will be making more for different seasons. Or you could to them with a monthly theme.
They would make a great & inexpensive gift!!!

Christmas Candy Cane Skincare

This year I thought I would make a fun candy cane soap & lotion bar. They are scented with peppermint eo. I sewed up a cute paper bag to put them in with a candy cane too.

New journal

Every month we get a mailer with coupons in it. It is a pretty substantial mailer too. I think they have about 75 pages in them. I decided to make a journal out of one.

I have this paper pack I bought several years ago. I thought I would that to cover the pages. I am still trying to use the stuff I already have.

So I started covering all the pages. I am liking how the pages are coming together.

So you get how this is going. I have a little leftover from each page too so I can use those to imbelish.

I added some lined paper, leftover paper, stamping & some old imbelishments to make some cute new pages. I love taking some junk mail, using old stuff to make something new. Awesome :)
