Miracle Cream Foot Lotion

I got this off of the HGTV craft sites 3 or 4 years ago. Everybody seems to love it. There are different recipes but all using the same ingredients. This is the one I always go back to, if I try another. I have tried the Lavender lotion but people prefer the regular baby lotion that I make it for. Some people put it on their feet and then use socks. They say it can be used on the face but we use it on the feet and hands at night.

Miracle Cream Foot Lotion

2~ 4 oz. jars Vitamin E Cream (I find it at Wal-Mart and Dollar General)
1~16 oz. bottle baby lotion
1~8 oz. jar vaseline (7.2 oz or whatever)

Mix all ingredients together~I use an electric mixer. Put into a container. I use the small glad containers normally but found these at Dollar General.

Flameless Candle


I put one on each side of my window. We all like the way it looks. If you enlarge it to look at it~~~~yes, my mirror needs cleaned where I smudged it. Okay, you don't have to enlarge to see the smudge that appeared when putting it up it is very apparent.

Mini Cupcake Ornaments



This past week-end I had a 4 and 5 yr. old help me roll the balls in snow to make these. I received one this summer in a swap from a friend at MHH and loved it.

My finds today


I got off early today and I shopped for a short time. The big ones were $5 and the Campbells $1 (and it has quite a few pages) that would be 16 and I offered $10 and he said 10.50 with tax.

Material for a 15 minute table runner


Not sure if it will be this year or next.

Remember all pictures can be enlarged by clicking.

These all are out of .......




My DD's kitten loves to be on the table in my craft room. She now has decided that my pins need to be out of the pin cushion. She will use her mouth and take them out and drop them the table or on the floor!!!! She is just like a small child.

Should see her with my container of pom poms I left open! :( Maybe half are in there yet!

Wax Spill


I got off work early today and thought I would go shopping. Got gas, paid the power bill and then started. First place I went was to the open house at Hallmark and I was smelling a candle and the wax went all over me! Needless to say I did not go everywhere I wanted to then.

Items for care packages




These are items I am sending to a MHH friends husband in the service. Plus the Cloth Tic Tac Toe game done in the white grid. I hope he likes and can use some of the items.

I have never sent to service men before so thought this would be a change for the season giving.

Weight Cover



This goes in the drawer at work to keep the work from blowing out. Earlier this summer I did a summer one, fall and Halloween. Thought I had some more Thanksgiving material but didn't. Had to make this piece work. Still have to do Christmas, Valentines, St. Patty's, Easter and whatever else comes to mind. Winter one, spring, 4th of July.

Should of been cleaning last night but I would rather be doing this type of stuff. :)
