It has been slightly over a month since making my first batch of sugar scrubs, and I’ve made and sold nearly 300 jars! Not only do they make a GREAT gift…they actually are amazing at making your hands and feet really soft! I’ve received some great comments about them, and I’m still taking orders! If you haven’t tried them and want to see what all this hype is about, send me an email at


Okay, so I’m putting this out for all to see…that is, for all who visit my website who know m (which is likely not a lot). So, it’s safe to say that posting this picture of what will likely be my centerpieces for my April 28 wedding, should not ruin the surprise of too many folks. Plus, I need my mom to visit my site to see what I’ve been trying to describe to her over the phone. The glass cylinder main vase has a printed photocopy of one of our engagement photos. I filled the vase with navy beans and inserted several willow branches ($1.99 at Jeffrey Alans) and hot glued some mini cupcake liner flowers on the branches. Simple as that! The Ball jars wrapped in fabric will have a small candle. The puffy balls are made from coffee filters, so everything is done inexpensively, but very creatively! Beats the cost of having real flowers, plus I think some people will appreciate the effort put into hand crafted items (at least I would!).

Fabric Flowers

December 4, 2011

I love making my fabric flowers. I’ve turned several into pins, hair clips or necklaces! I will have to find a fun purpose for them in my upcoming wedding!
