The Pinterest Project Day 29: Organizing a Sewing Area

Pinterest is a place for building envy if you aren’t careful. The site is full of home sewing areas to drool over, and wish for. However, I don’t have such a space in my home. This room featured on the blog Sew Many Ways is awesome! And the Creative Living Blog has this cute little closet turned into a sewing space. On the day 28 Pinterest Project, I created a case for my iPad keyboard in 30 minutes. This is possible only because I have my space organized and ready to go when I need to sew something quick.

I assembled my materials. I didn’t have any regular or floral clay, but I had some old […]

The Pinterest Project Day 27: Homemade Lotion Bars

I’ve been using natural skin care and cosmetics for over a year now. I love lotion bars because they are so great for my skin. If you haven’t seen a lotion bar before, it looks like a bar of soap, but you rub it on your skin. Some come in something that looks like a deodorant stick, but others come in a little metal tin. I’ve been selling natural products on a small scale for a direct selling company, but even with my discount, the lotion bars were pricey. When you use a lotion bar, the warmth of your skin […]
