I’ve made a homemade sugar scrub before, but it’s been a while. And so when I ran out of my store-bought one yesterday morning, I thought to myself, “I bet I already have all of the ingredients that I need to make my own, and I’ll just wash out this container and put it in here!”… Continue reading 3 Ingredient Organic Vegan DIY Sugar Scrub
You might recall that we went on an awesome staycation and glamped at The Texas Bell last spring. Leslie and her husband Jess who own The Bell were incredible hosts and we remained Facebook friends ever since! A few weeks ago I saw some beautiful indigo Shibori (tie dye) that Leslie did and she invited me over… Continue reading Shibori Surprise!
What a night! Somehow I had forgotten how intense the energy of a playoff game is…I guess because it’s been a year (?)…but I was definitely reminded last night when I walked into Lehnhoff stadium for round one of the 6A Div II playoff game of Steele v the San Antonio Brandeis Broncos. Holy smokes,… Continue reading Playoffs: #knitrobaby Debut & a W
Way back when we were on our Babymoon in Mendocino, CA while preggers with baby #2, (who turned out to be Rex, see belly pic), we wandered into a beautiful wood shop. Yes, this was the trip that Scott un-affectionately referred to as the “the vegan yoga retreat,” because we stayed at an all vegan resort (and… Continue reading Knob Jewelry Holder
Remember back when I mentioned wanting to do some actual crafts, instead of using my crafting cravings for evil solely to “craft in the kitchen” (i.e. making cookies, donuts, ice cream, you know, all the pregnant lady cravings)? Well, I scoured pinterest and that’s where I came up with my last craft – the lavender eye pillows. And… Continue reading More (yoga-ish) Crafts!
I’ve been feeling crafty – not sure if that’s a pregnancy symptom or not, but lately I’ve been using my craftiness for evil – that is, in the kitchen (homemade vegan gummy bears, ice cream, cookies, etc). And. I. Need. To. Stop! I need to use my craftiness instead for something besides calorie consumption! Sooooo…I… Continue reading Long Time No Craft
It’s been a while since I posted something under my “Crafty Crafts” category! Recently I’ve been working on some homemade yoga mat straps and even a “bag!” They have turned out pretty well, although I’m still tweaking the patterns slightly to get them exactly where I want them to be. For example, the strap pattern… Continue reading Yoga Crafts!
I’m still playing catch-up on my craft posts… For Christmas I painted some pretty Om paintings for my Lifetime 281 Yoga instructors and they turned out great! I always forget what neat gifts small little canvas paintings can make. And while we are on the topic of painting… I’m here to report that Landri recently did some… Continue reading Megan Paints and Landri Paints
Recently I made a reversible little toddler shirt for Scott’s cousin and his wife who are expecting their first baby in the next couple of weeks. It came out really well and is Landri-sized (she was my model), so they will have to wait a while to get to use it. It was pretty simple… Continue reading Another “Sew Crafty” Post: Toddler Shirt
Hello there – I’ve been meaning to post this for a while, as this was a project I did late this past fall. I saw an article about making homemade lip balm and had to give it a try. I was extremely pleasantly surprised at the quality of the finished product – I really like how… Continue reading Craft Time: Homemade Lip Balm
