A different kind of Mixed Media…

Hello all,

I have been exploring a different kind of art and craft lately using my essential oils and herbs.  It is all a part of my plan to use more natural products and limit unhealthy ingredients that I consume (internally and externally).

This post is walking you through my recipe for a “Touch of Sunshine” liquid hand soap.  This recipe was inspired by DIY Liquid Handsoap Pinterest pin by Happy Mothering.  My recipe has been tweeked a bit as I wanted to make mine more bright, cheery and full of sunshine!

Ok, so I maybe it’s a bit corny, but the root of this recipe is the infusion of sunshine.  Infusion of what?!? Yes, sunshine.  By placing my water into a jar and setting in the sunshine, I get the spirit of sunshine into my recipe.  Hey, it works for me!   And…I hope it works for you too.

Check out the recipe card as well as the Quick Tips “A different kind of Mixed Media” video below for the step by steps.

Imagine Crafts, Mixed Media

Stamp a muslin bag and fill with hand made bath salts.

Hello all,

Spring is so refreshing and new, it puts me in the mood to try new things and/or start something new.  It’s those feelings of renewal that got me finding recipes to mix up some wonderful bath salts and soaks.  There is something very satisfying about mixing and creating something for yourself.  Even more so, when you get to share your new discoveries with others.

Below you will find links to two Pinterest recipes that I tried, followed by a photo of my finished product.  Plus, as an added bonus, below you will find a stamped muslin bag project (to store your lovely scented bath salts in).  Check out the Quick Tips Mixed Media Video below for the step by steps!
