This is a really, really simple roller-ball essential oils recipe! It’s blended mix of minty and soothing oils really helps to calm sore and achy muscles, as well as provide a very soft and relaxing scent to help de-stress at the same time!
Essential oils still seem to be all of the rage, these days! Have you tried them before? Do they actually work?! Well, I finally decided to find out for myself, and I must say that so far, I am really impressed!
Once in a while I get really stiff, sore and achy muscles in my neck and shoulders, so I decided that for my first essential oils recipe, I would create a very easy, sore and achy muscle relief blend! Continue reading →
Raise your hand if you are one of those crazy people like me, who loves a good kitchen faucet! Whether I am visiting someone’s home or strolling down the aisle of the local DIY store, I am always checking out the faucets!
Personally, I have always loved the looks of the old farmhouse style faucets… And the really nice thing about technology these days, is that we can now get these beautiful farmhouse/antique looking faucets, with all of the convenient functionality of the modern day faucet! It’s totally the best of both worlds! Yah!Continue reading →
I always say that it’s completely impossible to have a happy baby and a clean house! Trust me, I’m really trying to work on the balance and all, and I know that some moms really do have “it all together”… just not me, yet! Still working on it!
Sometimes my daughter and I role with the motto “Messy hair, and we don’t care!”, and well, we just decide to have fun all day long! So, last week we decided to start out by making play-dough first thing in the morning. Honestly, the making of this play-dough was actually a necessity! You know how sometimes the play-dough gets left out overnight, and it gets all hard and stuff?! [Psst! Do your kids love play-dough?! Check out some of these great play-doe accessories!]
Here are some of the great reasons why I LOVE this play-dough recipe:
If it accidentally gets left out, this play-dough doesn’t harden for at least 24 hours! (Trust me… we just made it last week… and this has already been tested out about 24 trillion times!!)
This play-dough recipe does not require any cream of tar-tar! (Something I always, always want to buy since it has many cleaning and cooking purposes, but I can never remember to simply put it on my list… SO annoying!!)
A lot of the play-dough recipes that I looked up actually require baking… (Ummm no-thanks!)
This recipe makes a LOT of play-dough!
The best part was that I was able to just throw all of the ingredients into a huge mixing bowl, and let my gorgeous two-year old daughter mix it all up all by herself! (Soooooo easy!!!!!)
All you need to do is throw all of the ingredients into a big mixing bowl, and mix, mix, mix!
I actually got about five “servings” of play-dough out of this recipe, each about the size of my fist! I just put the servings into zip-lock baggies and threw them into the freezer… So next time the play-dough dries up — I’m completely prepared!
Also, in case you haven’t noticed yet, I pulled an epic mom fail while making this play-dough!!! I completely always, also forget to buy food-coloring!!! Hence, my “white-ish” play-dough… BUT! I figure that maybe we can turn that into another fun activity of color-mixing and adding color into the play-dough the next time we are looking for something to do! I actually ended up throwing a little bit of green glitter into the mixture, just to spice it up a little bit! 😉
