Sink Trick

With Mother’s Day coming up, I wanted to share one of the first household tricks my mother taught me when I moved out. Vinegar and baking soda = bubbly cleany stuff. This “foam” is natural, green, and dedorizes, cleans, kills bug eggs, plus removes rust. Simply sprinkle baking soda around the drain, and then “wash” the soda down the drain by pouring vinegar onto it. The combination will foam up, and rinse away any extras with water.

Words of wisdom I still use. Thanks mom!

How To: Using Our Body Melts

If you’ve been wondering how to use our Body Melts, well wonder no more! Body Melts may be used as a solid, applied directly to your skin, or with our warmers. The warmer transforms the Melt into an oil, but don’t worry about burning yourself ladies, as I’ve demonstrated below, the wax melts but doesn’t scald.

In addition to using our Body Melts, the best part about this product is that 100% of the net proceeds are donated to charitable organizations.

The Cute Little Owl

Tonight’s artistic adventure took me into Photoshop land, where I digitally danced with trees, leaves and then settled on an owl. Now I will share that I’m not a bird person, however the owl fascinates me lately and I think in addition to my collection of Hello Kitty (did I mention I’m a HK addict????) I want to start collecting owls. Check out my design:

Owl Design by Heather

If you enjoy the design, it is available in my store as a shower curtain and a wall poster.

Fairy Branch Arrangment

Michaels had a 40% off floral sale today which I happily participated in. Sometime ago mom had given me a Lucky Bamboo which I promptly killed. It wasn’t intentional, it just didn’t like me. In fact none of them ever do. But I digress… Using the glass bamboo jar I filled it with moss, topped it off with a shiny green ribbon and stuffed the arrangement into the guest bathroom. Only thing I’m missing is a clip-on fairy figurine.

Bathroom Magazine and Paper Holder

I love bathroom accessories, but won’t pay $19.99 to $30.00 for a magazine rack and toilet paper holder as offered by certain stores in the area. Using a trash bag box, and a coffee can I fashioned by own with craft paper from the Dollar Tree and glue sticks.

I papered the inside of the box first starting with the smaller sides with 2 pieces of paper. Use one long piece for the bottom and remaining sides. Cut one large portion of paper for the outside. Start with the longer sides first and glue the paper from the bottom up. Wrap the smaller sides as if you were wrapping a present and cut any excess. Press the top (trim to make even) into the box and glue down.

For the coffee can simply cut on long piece which circles around the can. Glue the paper down and press the excess down to form an inside layer. Glue down the inside if needed.
