Pumpkin Shea Butter DIY Lotion


This DIY lotion is similar to my summer Coconut Oil ‘Day at the Beach’ Jars, but a little more substantial, yellow in color and smells like fall itself. The base oils are coconut oil and shea butter (pictured) found at bulk food stores, specialty groceries or online.  I buy mine at Amazon or Costco. The rest of the supplies for this DIY lotion can be ordered quickly online at Consumer Crafts. Supplies needed to make your own pumpkin shea butter {Read More}

Pumpkin Spice DIY Bath Salts


A few months ago I made these amazing Strawberry Bath Salts!  They were a huge hit and they smelt amazing!  They also made a great homemade gift.  As fall is approaching I wanted to create a fall version of my DIY bath salts and so I picked up a few items from Consumer Crafts and I got to work creating these delicious smelling Pumpkin Spice DIY bath salts! I love how the strawberry bath salts smelled, but I won’t lie, {Read More}

Edible Terrarium Activity For Kids


Each summer in our house, we like to have a Bug and Garden week.  Though bug-catching is a stalwart standard, I always try to switch up things just a bit.  This year we made moss marshmallows for an edible terrarium activity, created a family of lady bugs and even planted a Venus fly trap!  Join me today as I share our activities! This edible terrarium activity is a project inspired by Jenn at Rook 17’s terrariums.  She makes the cutest {Read More}

DIY Bubbles: Make Your Own Bubble Party Favors


How cute are these itty bitty colored bottles?  The pretty colors screamed “summer” to me, and one of my favorite summer activities to do with my kids is to blow bubbles.  So I put the two thoughts together and made these adorable DIY bubbles for custom party favors! Since these are glass bottles, these DIY bubbles are not really appropriate to use with young kids, but they would be beautiful as favors or table decor for an outdoor wedding or {Read More}

Burlap & Floral Rustic DIY Gift Boxes


I make a lot of the gifts I give, and often they’re small.  So when I found this punch board that lets you make scrapbook paper DIY gift boxes, I knew I would use it a lot!  Not only does it work great for small gifts, it’s also perfect for making up favor boxes for your party or DIY wedding.  I’m going to show you today how quickly you can punch and fold a gift box, and give you an {Read More}

Beach in a Jar: DIY Coconut Oil Moisturizer


Today we will be making what I affectionately refer to as “Beach in a Jar”. This creamy coconut oil moisturizer has the smell of the beach without being an overwhelmingly coconut scent and it goes on like buttah. This coconut oil moisturizer is NOT a typical lotion that you might put on your hands. Rather, it is a thick oil that is perfect for your skin after a long bath, or perhaps even while AT the beach.  I love to take a {Read More}

Pottery Barn Inspired Easel Place Cards for Easter


I’ve mentioned in other posts that I love projects that have more than one use.  These easel place cards are pretty and practical! They can be used not only as a place card, but also as a food label or just as a pretty photo frame. I was inspired by these Easter place cards at Pottery Barn.  Once you have all the supplies assembled, you could easily make several of these in no time! Supplies needed to make your own {Read More}
