Lemon Sugar Scrub

I saw this project on The Craft Project site and thought it looked like a great project with the children for their teachers. Each child just made one jar and it took less than 10 minutes to make! Great project~

I made some modifications to the recipe. We used:
1 8oz. canning jar
1 C Sugar
1/4 c. Grapeseed oil *this was recommended at an infant massage training I attended.
Lemon Zest
2 tbsp. lemon juice
Lemon Essential Oil *use as much or little as you want. We also used Lemon Eucalyptus 

Mix  ingredients together~  

For the labels, you can find them free at: Mean Mommy Academy

I think for the next scrub I will try a rosemary mint. Hope you enjoy this simple activity!

Mom Tried It Photo Challenge- Out of Place

I love this little shop in Glen Rose, TX. I pass it each year going to our family reunion. I noticed this year their VW planter had a different look. 

Fabulous Friday Challenge

I saw the cutest photo of a baby on a big bear last week, and I thought to myself "why can't my big 7 1/2 year old look cute on a bear?" Babies are cute, but I think my big kids are cute too. I may be a little bias.

Fabulous Friday Challenge

Well, I didn't have many pictures to choose from this week. Thought I would choose this one of Annie eating a marshmallow pop. My super crafty cousin, Gillian, made these to sell at a craft fair. They were a hit!

My mom has joined the Bakerella Fan Club with me. I asked for the "Cake Pops" book for my birthday, and she found these cute little chicks to make for Easter. They were a hit! Can't wait to try more of her designs.

Here is the book:
