Episode #275 CVS Score'

Hi Everyone,
I hope your holidays were merry & bright ~ Our's were wonderful & full of fabulous memories! I've got lots of pictures to add to my scrapbooking pile. I guess it's always good to have something to have to scrap...
If you are a coupon clipper like I am, then this is a video for you! I am always looking for a great deal & with 3 kids, I go through shampoo & conditioner like crazy. Here are some of deals I scored at CVS yesterday & I am so glad I did. Be sure to stop by your local CVS & see if these deals are going on in your area. In our family, we also give alot of these things to our local food pantry via our church. So many people are in need & what a wonderful way to help!
Happy New Year,

Episode #274 Homemade Hand & Body Scrub

Happy Holidays Everyone,
Today I whipped up lots of homemade gifts for friends & neighbors! I wanted to share this awesome hand & body scrub that you can customize with your favorite scent. I made brown sugar & vanilla, but I have to say, favorite is the brown sugar & lemon! It smells soooo good & makes your hands really soft. I love this stuff & will be painting my nails as well for alittle pampering after a long day of house cleaning & crafting. Woo-Hoo!!!
Here are the measurements : 1 cup brown sugar
1 cup white sugar
Approximently 3/4 cup olive oil
*optional : vanilla extract or lemon extract
Mix well until the consistancy of wet sand & place into glass jar. Decorate outside of jar & label. The person recieving it my have to stir the contents before using if oil settles.
Happy Holidays,
