Most of my regular blog readers know that in addition to my crafting, I also work as a Doctor of Chiropractic. Therefore, I am always interested in anything that can help my family, friends, and patients. We have used essential oils in our practice sporadically for over 10 years. However, I’ve decided within the past year to really learn more about using oils and implementing them into our everyday lives.
So yesterday, I posted the picture above to show some of the roller bottles that I have made to get us ready for back-to-school. Let’s just say there was a good response to the post and a lot of questions that were difficult to answer with just a comment. I promised to share the instructions for making the roller bottles and the exact “recipes” that I used for each formula.
A few more things…….

As some of you already know, I went to Florida 2 weeks ago to be with my son after his tonsillectomy. We spent 5 days in a hotel room, the only entertainment being cable television. I knew that I would get bored quickly and that I would want to do something creative. However, packing my craft supplies was not an option with traveling light and flying. I decided to take the Oh Happy Day card kit, along with some paper snips and adhesive.
What a pleasant surprise! This kit has EVERYTHING you need to make 20 super adorable cards. You get the stamp set, an acrylic block, a Basic Black ink spot, pre-scored cards, gold foil accents, and some beautiful floral die-cuts.
Click on the photo below if you'd like more info on the kit.
There are full color instructions for each card. I thought this 3-1/2" x 4" tri-fold card with a heart flap was super adorable. I love the way all of the elements are layered together and the combination of the bright colors. Who wouldn't want to receive this cutie?
The card below features many of the bold die-cuts and a foil heart accent. Again, you get everything in the kit to make this card. You'll just need scissors to cut the Baker's Twine and some adhesive. I recommend SNAIL and the Tombow Multi-adhesive. You get some dimensionals in the kit and I even had a few left over.
This kit makes 20 different cards and I've only shown you 2 of them. If you are a beginner or experienced stamper, this kit is perfect for all levels. It would also be a great project kit to take to a crop or scrapbooking retreat. You can learn more about this kit in my online store or from your demonstrator.

The March Technique Challenge for Stylin' Stampin' INKSpiration is paper weaving. It's been years since I've done this technique, so I decided to try it out with a slightly different spin. I found several different weaving patterns on this website, and went with a diagonal pattern for my background.
I used strips of the Urban Underground Designer Series Paper to weave together. The simple greeting is from the Suite Sentiments stamp set and I added a few of the Urban Underground Embellishments.
