How to make hand lotion-THIS IS SO EASY!!

Making lotion can be very rewarding but it can also be very frustrating.  It's hard to find the right ingredients that don't compromise your lotion's effectiveness, and it's really hard to get the right consistency.  I've done A LOT of experimenting and wasted A LOT of good product.  I've tried so many other blog's recipes and even brushed up on my chemistry (my worst subject) just to get the perfect consistency that will work for the hands.  I had originally posted this same recipe but with way … [Read more...]

Homemade Neosporin Recipe….

Today is a good day to make Homemade Neosporin!!  I don't know about your kids, but my kids have boo boos constantly!  I'm not even sure how they get half of them (they probably get them while I'm working on this blog!).  As usual, an old staple everyone has always used has harmful ingredients.  The main thing with Neosporin is that it is petroleum based.  I decided to come up with an all organic salve that would replace our worn out and toxic Neosporin.  This salve is great for cuts and … [Read more...]

Sophia’s Sweet Spot.

I discovered Sophia's Sweet Spot on Flickr years ago.  I fell in love with her art.  I know little about her.  She has a blog but has not made an entry for a couple of years.  She also has an Etsy shop but it is empty!  I know she has 3 daughter's and loves to paint.  She's definitely inspired by retro images!  She has many other paintings that you can find on her blog-sophiassweetspot/blogspot.com.  I sure hope this wonderful artists starts painting again soon! … [Read more...]

Lulu Kati Kati house…..An Urban Treehouse.

The Lulu Kati Kati house is located in Johannesburg, South Africa. The architect and homeowner is Kate Otten.  Lulu Kati Kati is Swahili for Pearl in the Middle.  The home is built into a cliff amongst large trees which are the home to many exotic birds. On one side of the home is a nature preserve and on the opposite is a busy street which gives the home a dual personality!   Eucalyptus tree trucks support the sides, weighing half a ton each and are 31 feet in length!  The house has three … [Read more...]
