DIY Gift – You Are The Balm #NCGiftGuide

I can rest easy knowing that I am not putting any nasty chemicals on my skin and still get great results. So this year I wanted to create a special gift for the various teachers, ECE workers, crossing guards and  ...

Easy DIY Advent Calendar #Craft

Christmas is coming!!! I know we are only in October but I really love getting my craft on early so I can enjoy the days that lead up to the big day. One of our favourite things are advent calendars.

DIY Natural Carpet Deodorizer

I spent my week-end cleaning. The boys u sally do their own room, but once every couple of weeks I go in and do a deep clean. This involves dusting, vacuuming, going through toy boxes and drawers.

Thank goodness I remembered my friend Stacy telling me she uses baking soda and essential oils.     What you need: 1 Cup of Baking Soda 10  ...
