DIY Essential Oil Sprays with Goddess Garden
October 31, 2018

  I recently went to Sedona and experienced the magnificent red rock.  Sedona is also known to be a mystical place where you can crystal shop and vortex hunt.   When I went I took my Essential Oils with me for inspiration for a DIY project. Essential Oils and crystals go hand in hand. Their benefits are so amazing, from aiding in sleeping, anxiety, breathing and can give you a mental boost.  Pairing them up and adding the crystal to the Essential Oils helps raise your vibration. Every day, when I turn on the hot water for my shower, I spray Eucalyptus Oil before I get in.  I've been doing this for at least 2 years. It helps wake me up (stimulates mental activity) and clears my sinuses.  …

Why would you can and preserve something that is not at its freshest? And where do you find the freshest ingredients? I have purchased my fruits and veggies from grocery stores and either scrubbed them or purchased organic only to be disappointed by the quality. So, I started going to Farmers Markets. I like to learn about where the produce is locally grown, and get to know the people.   I love going to Farmers Markets.  I look forward to Saturday mornings just for this …

How to Make Keepsake DIY Easter Eggs Using 4 Items
March 28, 2018

I recently when to an Easter Egg painting party.  It was fun and entertaining, and the kids had a blast.  Who doesn't like glitter and glue, stickers and dyes?  They really enjoyed it.  What a great tradition! However, I'm all about simplicity and purpose.  I like to do crafts that can be used for the future.  Maybe I'm just secretly trying to get mementos from the kids to save for later.  I'm very sentimental and appreciate it more when they make things I can save.  I'm not up for boiling eggs and making a mess.  The least number of items we use the better.  Plus, I egg salad.  No can do. So, I found some wood eggs at Target and decided to have the boys paint …
