Lip Scrub DIY

This dry winter weather and the dryness caused by heaters have resulted with my lips being dry and flaky.

I’ve looked around at purchasing a lip scrub but was not a fan of the prices! This inspired me to learn how to make my own. Why purchase something when you can make your own?!

This Sugar Lip Scrub only contains three ingredients:

  • One part brown sugar
  • One part coconut oil
  • Quarter part honey

In a double boiler, I warmed the coconut oil until it liquified.

Once liquified, I poured it into a bowl and added the brown sugar and honey. Let the mixing begin!

After mixing, I placed the bowl in the refrigerator to allow the coconut oil to harden. This takes about 10 minutes at most!

Then I took the bowl out and mixed again. After I reached the consistency that I liked, I placed into my container.

Try to be creative with your container. I recycled an old tea tin as my container! This has allowed me to save money and avoid waste.

I love the results! When I apply the scrub on at night (this is now a new night ritual), I massage my lips to exfoliate and lightly pat the sugar away with a towel. You don’t want to fully wipe away because the coconut oil and honey are a natural lip balm!

I hope this inspires you to make your own lips scrub!

Baby Garden Shoes

Making these shoes have given me some serious Spring Vibes! These were an order I had received and made them in size 6-12 mos.

What I love about crochet is that I get to be a part of the slow and sustainable fashion/product movement. I’m completely against fast fashion! Plus I get to personalize each product as I please!

Happy Monday!

Groundhog Day!

I love February! I love seeing the colors of pink and red nearly everywhere I go. Plus, it means that Spring is near. Spring is my favorite season (despite how dusty it gets here in Southern New Mexico)!

Speaking of Spring, Punxsutawney Phil did not see his shadow. That means we should expect an early Spring!

In my early crochet years, I made this tiny Punxsutawney Phil. He doesn’t really look like a groundhog, but I still love him so much!!!

Sally Skellington

Crocheting Sally was quite the challenge! I had to determine what to add and leave out so that she wouldn’t look too overwhelming!

Nevertheless, the journey was so much fun! If anything, I was horrified about how I was going to make her dress because if I patched up all the pieces manually, it would have been overwhelming and not sure if I’d do a decent job. Instead I sewed her dress with felt and drew everything else with a Sharpie and some highlighters!!!

I’m so happy with the results! Today she goes to her new home with Jack Skellington!

Jack Skellington

I had just completed my second order of the year for Jack Skellington!

This is my new and improved version of him because I decided to make him taller than the last one I made this past summer. This actually made him look more like the real Jack Skellington!

While I was working on him, I couldn’t help but want to create an ornament of Jack’s head. So I went for it and it was a quick and easy project!

I’m such a great fan of The Nightmare Before Christmas, so I had so much fun with these projects!

Stay tuned as I am currently working on Sally!!
