Saturday morning I woke up and moseyed around while debating what I was going to do with my weekend. Luckily, my friend Whitney went live in the Facebook event she invited me to reminding me that she was hosting an Essential Oils Make & Take party that afternoon!
Christmas is coming! This year, I am aiming to make gifts for my friends and family members, which should be an interesting task!
My family decided last year that rather than worry about getting every member a gift, we were doing a Not-so-Secret Santa and drawing names for the family member we are going to be responsible for shopping for. Easy peasy right?
My friends and I have an unspoken understanding that we will not be getting each other gifts, as we are much more oriented towards spending quality time with each other, however there are still a few things I am considering making for them!
In prepping for my handmade holiday, here are my top ten gift ideas!
I’ve always been beauty and skincare obsessed. I spent summers in high school in my family room watching Petrilude and Pixiwoo videos and trying to recreate makeup looks. That led to a lot of makeup wipes, baby wipes, and cotton rounds being tossed in the trash when I finished creating my masterpiece.
As I’ve gotten older, I have stepped away from using as much makeup as I once did. I have spent thousands on Mary Kay, building a makeup kit and direct sales business before stepping away a few years ago. While I still have the core of my kit, I rarely wear makeup anymore, opting instead for boosting my skincare and rocking my natural skin. When I do wear makeup, it can be a pain to take it off and I hate spending $15-20 on a “good” makeup remover.
This has led me to making my own remover solution and reusable makeup wipes.
In March, I took a mini sabbatical from making cloth pads. I’ve been blessed to have had a successful start to the year, and needed a break from making for a few weeks.
While I technically haven’t made many cloth pads, I have gone a wee bit crazy with buying pdf patterns for them. When I first started sewing my own stash, I would develop a pattern myself. I still have several of the first pads I made using this method, but I have loved utilizing PDFs from Etsy sellers. Here are my top three patterns I love!
