Bath Salts

So, my future mother-in-law's birthday is coming up, and since I've been all sorts of crafty lately, I thought for her birthday Dave and I could give her some homemade bath salts!

They were super easy to make, and I don't know any woman who doesn't enjoy a warm bath, good book, and I would call the bath salts an added bonus.

Want to make your own bath salts?

2 cups Epsom Salt, 1 cup Baking Soda, & 5-7 drops of essential oil (you pick the flavor)! Add it all together, and store it in an air-tight container.

A side note..I found the essential oil at Whole Foods, and I used Lavendar!

Happy Bath time & Happy Birthday to my future mother-in-law :)

Anthropologie Bobby Pins Re-Do


I have a new found love, Pinterest, and today I decided to search for DIY Bobby Pins. I was feeling in a crafty mood.

And, I found the cutest, pretty easy, DIY, knock-off Anthropologie Bobby Pins.

So, off to the store I was. First, to Target to make pumpkin pie bars, the recipe for those is here: pumpkin pie bars. I'm pretty sure only half the pan is left, and they just finished baking at 4:45 p.m.

Then, to Michael's to gather my supplies for the DIY Bobby Pins! After the pumpkin pie bars were done, I started on these bobby pins, and walllahhh here they are:

I love them! You could make them all different colors, or whatever you really want, I chose red for the upcoming Christmas season :)

If you want the tutorial of how to make these, it can be found here:
