Kniting Heaven and Earth - a book review

This morning I'm over at Little Monkey's Shop with a book review of Knitting Heaven and Earth and a giveaway. Even if you don't knit - I don't knit - you might be interested in reading how this author uses her knitting to help her navigate through life experiences.
At the end of the post, I tell you how to enter the book giveaway.

My new Essential Oils Bag


Over the past few years our family has started using Young Living Essential Oils to better our lives on a daily basis. As I have learned more and more about natural healing, I've collected quite a few different essential oils. What to do with them all?

My friend Dori over at The Red Feedsack makes the most beautiful bags for carrying your essential oils in when you travel - or for just storing them. She gifted me one recently (because that's what friends do!) and I'm in LOVE with it! She even included a great gift tag.

 The essential oil bag is made out of high quality fabric, so it will wash well and look new for a long time.  She has lots of fabric colors and styles from which to choose. The outside has a zipper opening on top with a colorful ribbon to add some cuteness.


Inside, the bag is padded and lined. There are 10 little pockets for the oil bottles along the sides of the bag and four removable inserts with 3 pockets each.  This gives you space for 22 bottles of oil in the bag! Each bottle of oil is snug in its own space and isn't going anywhere or breaking!


As a seamstress myself, I can say Dori has done a fantastic job in sewing these essential oil bags. I use mine to hold my everyday oils and then add a few extras when we travel. It also looks great sitting on the corner of our bathroom counter.

If you are interested in getting an essential oil bag for yourself or a friend, Dori can be found on her blog at The Red Feedsack.

Loop Scarf in time for Valentine's Day


Today I'm over at Little Monkey Shop sharing a free crochet pattern for this skinny or loop scarf.

Don't know how to crochet? No problem - this pattern utilizes the very basic crochet stitch - the chain stitch. You could even make it with your fingers if you don't have a crochet hook.

Let me know how your skinny/loop scarf turns out!
