Easy Floral Sugar Scrub

My Rose Jasmine Sugar Scrub is one of my favorite tutorials, and apparently a lot of you like it too!  However, I recently tried a slightly different variant of the sugar scrub, which I ended up liking even better.  In fact, I whipped up 3 jars quickly for the Peanut’s preschool teachers, and they asked me to tell them how I did it.  This is SO EASY and SO QUICK, and people can’t believe that you actually made it.  Given my frantic schedule, that’s a win-win.  It’s perfect for Mother’s Day too!  Let me show you how to make this lightning fast easy floral sugar scrub for your kiddo’s grandmothers, aunts or teachers.  Once you’ve started making it, you’ll make batch after batch!

Relaxing Homemade Bath Salts

Last year as a Teacher Appreciation gift, I made a homemade sugar scrub, and then one year I made lavender sachets.  This year, I decided to make some relaxing homemade bath salts.  I’ve made a few versions of bath salts before, but this year I used dried lavender as a primary ingredient.  I’m pleased with how these turned out, and the jars that I found at Target along with the personalized gift tags I made with my Cricut Explore Air, really made me proud of how the jar of homemade bath salts turned out.  If you’d like to make some for yourself, here’s how.

Easy DIY Conversation Heart Bookmark

Mellow Man loves Necco Wafers. They are his favorite candy. I don’t get the attraction to them, but I suspect the best part of Valentine’s Day for him is the Sweethearts.  While I don’t find them that delicious, I would definitely say that Sweethearts are an iconic part of Valentine’s Day.  I mean who doesn’t think of conversation hearts when thinking about Valentine’s Day.  Over the past few months, I’ve been gathering dozens of craft ideas for conversation hearts, and there are a lot of ideas out there.  I’ve seen lots of wonderful recreations of the “hearts in clay and salt dough, and a variety of rings and bracelets made with conversations hearts.  I didn’t think that Mellow Man would appreciate jewelry, so I decided to use an actual conversation heart to create my very own, quick and easy DIY Conversation Heart Bookmark.
