Happy February everyone!
Time flies! Can't believe we are heading toward the middle of the month already!
I have been working a bit on the tavern and made some decent progress, for a change. I was just thinking that I need to pull threads for another project I have been meaning to start as well. The pattern is on loan so I need to get working! Here is the tavern thus far-
This is an older pattern; I think the copyright is 1977! But the friend I am stitching it for wanted me to do it with overdyed threads. I think it will add a little something.
I have been playing with my oils again- yesterday I made face cream and today I made shower gel. The face cream works wonderfully! I haven't tried the shower gel yet. I will in the morning. The face cream was so easy and quick! I found a recipe on Pinterest and changed it slightly. You need 1/2 cup coconut oil, 2 tsp almond oil, 1 tbsp raw shea butter, and essential oil.(your choice- I used lavender and frankincense because they are good for your skin. 5 drops each.)
Put all ingredients in a mixing bowl.
Blend until a light, fluffy texture.
Put in an airtight container! Done!
This cream really works well. I put it on my face at night before bed, and in the morning before I put my makeup on. It is 7:21 pm and my face still feels so soft! And there is something comforting knowing that all the ingredients in it are not harmful in any way.
I started reading a new book this week - a Netgalley advanced reader copy. It's called No One Knows by J.T. Ellison. I wanted to read it because the preview reminded me a bit of the movie "Double Jeopardy", which I loved. I am curious to see if this book is similar or different. I am also reading Spirit Driven Success by Dani Johnson. I have recently just discovered Dani via a friend and she is amazing. Very inspiring and has good insight for all aspects of life. I highly recommend reading her books!
That's it for today- hope everyone has a great week!
