25 Days of a Crafty Christmas Day 2 and GIVEAWAY!!!

I know I am WAY behind and I apologize, I have been just SUPER busy and then I got sick.  Lovely.  Please do forgive me!

Easy Peasy Rich and Creamy Sugar Scrub

I have been making these sugar scrubs for a few years now.  I am not one to really follow directions very well so I don't remember the amounts.  I just put a little bit of this and a little bit of that until it looks right to me.  Sugar scrubs are VERY easy to make, they can be made out of your favorite body wash or your favorite essential oil.  Play around with the scents and have fun!

Pour Sugar into Bowl
 

Add Olive Oil
 
Add your Favorite Body Wash or Essential Oil
 
Now we Mix.....
 
Scrape down the sides
 

and mix a bit more by hand
 

Once scrub is at the consistency you like place in container of choice


I like to use plastic containers since you will be using this in the bathroom but today, I ran out of them so had to use glass instead.  This sugar scrub is great for those rough spots on your skin and helps keep your skin super soft.

Strawberries and Cream Instant Oatmeal | Recipe

I don't know about you but, we go through oatmeal like that is the only thing to eat on this planet!   Seriously a TON! My youngest would eat it for every meal and snack....every day....if I let her. Yes, the little packs can be cheap (if you can find a coupon and get them on sale) but it still adds up.  I used things I already had on hand so there was no extra cost to make this.  FREE is ALWAYS good!   I tried before to make little packets to keep on hand but that was a complete fail.  I have since reworked the recipe and am happy with the results.  I decided to just keep the oatmeal in a glass container this time and scoop out what we need, when we need it.  You can also make this into packets by just scooping the desired amount into zip-top bags. {Strawberries & Cream Instant Oatmeal}   12 Servings 6 Cups Quick Cook Oats 1 1/2 Cups Oat Powder 2 Cups Powdered Milk 1 - 1 1/2 Cup Sugar 1 Cup Freeze Dried Strawberries Directions f

Getting ready for summer with #MyHartstrings #cbias

Is it warming up where you are?  It has been warming up here for a few weeks now.  With spring break over and the temps slowly getting warmer and warmer, it can only mean one thing.... SUMMER is just around the corner! We like to spend our summers at the lake or at the pool.  Last year we practically lived in our bathing suits!  Since we spent SO much time in our suits last year, they were looking a little warn by the end of summer.  Plus both girls have grown so much this year, they needed new suits. I have been peeking at some suits on Hartstrings.com and decided to go ahead and get new suits!  We may be going to Houston soon so the girls will need something for that trip.  It was REALLY hard to decide on what suit to get the girls, they have such cute options.  Mads is old enough to pick for herself (somewhat) and MG really doesn't care as long as it includes pink. I pulled up Hartstrings.com and let the girls have at it.  I did guide MG into the green and p
