I Am A Crafting Junkie!!!!

Just in case you have not noticed...
yes I know you've noticed...I am a crafting junkie.
I am inspired immensely by Pinterest, and my love for all things handmade.
I may have way too much time on my hands,
but that's another whole post,
for a whole nother day.
In addition to all my latest projects, I decided I wanted
to make homemade foot/body scrub.
So fun, so easy, this is something you may want to try.

 Here's what you will need...this recipe can easily be doubled
1 cup of brown sugar
1/2 cup coconut oil
1/2 teaspoon vitamin e oil
1 tablespoon of cinnamon
a splash of vanilla

These cute 4 oz ball jars...

 these awesome labels I found here, free to print!!

 It can only be mixed by hand,
therefore your hands will be slippery for days...
 This was really easy and kinda' fun!

One batch, fills two of these,

you can attach these cute little spoons with some bakery twine
and it' makes the "perfect" small gift for someone special!

I am going to make another batch substituting peppermint oil
for the cinnamon and vanilla!!

It will be kinda' Christmassy!!


  1. As soon as I saw the title I thought 'That must be Debbie!'

  2. Adorable and a very nice a nice way to get someone to relax, put their feet up and pamper themselves, Great idea.

  3. That's a neat idea. You could almost eat that... I bet the peppermint oil scrub will smell fantastic.

  4. Love this! Thank you for sharing. I remember receiving a homemade gift once and loved it. Now, I can make my own.

    Hugs, Rose

  5. That's an original gift.


  6. Oh me too! Especially this time of year, I even like taking my usual decorations and change them up! Always something different! AND! You always have the best ideas, this is just a perfect gift!

  7. You are definitely out of control! ;-)

  8. Oh, your feeder visited by more and more beautiful birds.

  9. Yes, I've noticed. :) Last time you gave me a brilliant idea about soap felting. Here is another which I might possibly try too. Thanks for those.

  10. I am definitely going to try this, Debbie.
    They would make such wonderful stocking stuffers.
    Thank you so much for sharing here.

  11. Great ... I like your ideas, Debbie !!

  13. Sounds like fun might have to give it a try lol

  14. Oh, I love that! I have the ingredients except for coconut oil. Might have to give it a try. You are, indeed, very crafty and amazing. :)

  15. Debbie, this sounds like something to eat! They do look like cute gifts! You are amazing!

  16. too cute! craft away, craft away. :)

  17. These are so cute! You find the neatest things to make, and you do such a good job. I probably couldn't follow this recipe for the foot scrub though. I would eat all the brown sugar before it made it into the bowl. lol

  18. Oh sounds wonderful....I have only recently been introduced to the benefits of coconut oil....oh so soft skin. Have fun! Hugs! B
