Sticker You-Vibrant Labels For All Your DIY Products!

I often get asked where I get my labels for my Etsy products.  Sometimes I create labels via the Avery template and print them myself but when I want to create professional looking labels, I always us Sticker You.  Printing labels at home typically don't last.  They aren't durable and it takes so much ink to create a vibrant, readable label.   Just recently I learned how to create a sheet of labels with lots of different labels on the same sheet and realized how great this is for those of you … [Read more...]

Shea Butter Benefits-Encourage Collagen!

I LOVE shea butter.  It's in my top 5 DIY ingredient must-haves but I actually don't always end up putting it in a recipe.  I like to use it all on it's own!  Shea butter has so many amazing properties.  Basically, you get a lot of bang for your buck with shea butter.   Shea butter has tons of uses and offers so many benefits for not only the skin but also the hair! Shea butter comes from the nuts of the shea tree in western parts of Africa.  It has been used for centuries to nourish skin and … [Read more...]

Hyaluronic Pumpkin Serum DIY

A new hyaluronic acid post has been a long time coming.  My first HA recipe HERE has been my most viewed post since I published it but I haven't played with the ingredient since.  I've been wanting to explore botanical extracts as well but since most of those need to be in a water based solution, I had put them on the back burner.  Then it dawned on me-a 1% hyaluronic solution would be the perfect base for extracts and I've been experimenting ever since!  Plus, it's fall and PUMPKIN IS IN.  What … [Read more...]

Vegan DIYs with Candelilla Wax

Many of you have requested I post more vegan DIYs.  For a while I just couldn't quite figure out how to do that in products like lip balms, healing salves and vapor rubs.  Basically anything that is a salve requires beeswax and beeswax is a product that comes from an animal.  Beeswax is so wonderful to work with and gives balms the perfect texture while providing nourishment to the skin that I was hesitant to try anything else.  I did some research and stumbled upon Candelilla wax.  I decided to … [Read more...]

DIY or BUY: Badger Sleep Balm

Who can say they get too much quality sleep?  Not many of us, I'm guessing.  So many factors affect sleep.  The two big ones for me are stress and hormones-oh and my new cat, August Banks.  He likes to rearrange his poop and pee in the litter box at least twice a night and enjoys knocking random objects off table tops around 4 in the morning.  Insert teeth gritted emoji. I'm sure many of you have kiddos waking up in the middle of the night and snoring spouses.  Once we hit a certain age, … [Read more...]

A Day in the Life of an Avid DIYer…

Since starting this blog, I've realized that I am a true DIYer.  I will literally DIY anything.  If you come to my home, you'll notice I DIY the art on my walls.  I even had 2 DIY births-yes, you heard that right-I had 2 home births but my last baby came too soon so the midwife didn't make it-who needs a doctor or midwife when you're a DIYer?  Totally kidding.  If you're familiar with this blog, you know the list of DIYs goes on and on!  From candles to chap-stick, I've covered a lot of bases.  … [Read more...]
