Bragging Rights

So today I have reserved the right to brag on two of my seriously TALENTED friends!

First, Kristin of iDoOriginals! We have been friends for almost 8 years and she certainly has a passion for all things wedding...and pretty! She is so creative and has been featured in many publications including the knot Best of Weddings 2009 and now one of her gorgeous parasols is going to be adorning the cover of Belle Magazine for December!! Congratulations Kristin!! I'm sure this is just the first of many magazine covers for you :)

Amanda of Dawn Correspondence is a great graphics artist and one of my new found etsy friends. We actually met at the recent craft fair we both attended and became fast friends. We even are planning some joint creative fabulousness in the future so be sure to tune in later for that! This Sunday some of Amanda's wonderful work is going to be featured in swag bags at the American Music Awards! Seriously, how many artists get to say that celebrities got to take home some of their work at a major event???!!! Congratulations Amanda!! Soon we will be seeing Carrie Underwood with some of your beautiful correspondence and no longer will Hallmark be the only famous card seller! ;)

DIY Day - Body Scrub!!! You need only four ingredients to make these moisturizing exfoliants. The base can be made from either Epsom salts or sugar, depending on whether you want a large or fine grain. Color the scrubs with shades that are in keeping with some of the scents you use -- pink with grapefruit, for example, or green with eucalyptus. Makes about 2 1/3 cups.

Tools and Materials
2 cups Epsom salts, organic cane sugar, or regular cane sugar
1 cup oil (Jojoba, Almond, Grapeseed, Olive, Sunflower)
8 drops essential oil(s)
1 drop food coloring
Special equipment: glass jars

1. Stir together Epsom salts or sugar and oil in a bowl, mixing well.
2. Using a dropper, add essential oil, 1 drop at a time. Add food coloring, and stir until color is even throughout. Spoon into glass jars (preferably with a seal).
3. Make and cut out pretty labels, and affix to clean jars. Enjoy!

Glass jars from The Container Store
