Pine Needles, Carrier Oils, DIY Gifts, Homemade Bath Crayons, Survival Mom Radio.

Well here's another update... just in time for Christmas.  Now you can't say that I didn't get you anything.  LOL!  :-)  

DIY Natural - Benefits of pine & Pine Essential Oil.

DIY - Carrier Oils and how to use them for your DIY projects.

Personally I use coconut oil for a TON of my DIY recipes.  My son totally LOVES his homemade toothpaste that I make with coconut oil & add in some peppermint essential oil.  He says the store-bought toothpastes is "nasty".  So proud of him!  :-)

I totally want to try this recipe out ASAP!  My son would LOVE it!  Of course the downside is that I'd never get him out of the tub, but hey.... at least he'd be clean & having a good time.  :-)

Of course, another great source of useful info is : 

I love this!  My husband turned me onto checking out The Survival Mom a couple of years ago and I've been hooked ever since.  He's even added in a few additional podcasts to my list and while I do listen to those, my favorites are the ones on The Survival Mom Radio Network.  

I hope you all have a great Christmas and a truly blessed New Year!

Homemade Hot Cocoa, DIY Christmas, 7 Quick DIY Money Saving Projects.

I think I've got some really yummy and perhaps a little bit festive things in this post for you.  Please leave me a comment to let me know that someone actually reads my blog and what you think of things (be gentle... LOL!)  :-)

This will be a rather short post though due to the fact that I'm battling a headache induced by an accidental exposure to lavender.  I don't know what it is, but one whiff and whoa nelly... I'm a goner and my family is lucky to avoid my wrath...Poor guys....LOL!

This looks SO good!  I am definitely going to have to try this one this winter!  I have a feeling it's going to be a hard one....though I'd LOVE to be wrong about that.  LOL!

Home Remedies for Pink Eye, Natural remedies for cough & cold season, 12 great uses for Tea Tree Oil andGreat Depression Cooking: Clara's Twice Baked Potatoes (Video).

Hey everyone!  I bet you never thought I'd actually remember to update.  LOL!  Been kind of crazy lately.  Even got a new nephew yesterday... Welcome to the world little Cullen Matthew!  :-)

Anyway, here's a collection of articles and various other information that I thought you might find useful.  Please let me know if you like it and how I can make things even better (just try to keep it nice... LOL!)  :-)

I thought that my public schooling friends and family might like this one... 

And from Natural

And check this out... I LOVE tea tree oil!  

Some really good stuff!  :-) 

And here's a really great video from Clara (Youtube - Great Depression Cooking)

I really love this lady's videos.  I could really just sit and talk with someone like Clara for hours.  I love the stories that people of her generation (of whom there really aren't many left) can share with us.  I have a feeling that those stories might prove very useful someday soon.
