Homemade Beauty/02

This sounds so wonderful and it looks luscious. Not to eat of course but imagine how good it would feel on your skin.
I made a short cut version with baby lotion, vitamin E and vaseline which was good, but this is much better. Especially when you can add the essential oil. Love lavender!

Are you ready for softer skin? This body butter has you covered. All of you! I put it on from head to toe and it keeps my skin feeling soft and supple all day. And best of all, it’s not too greasy and doesn’t clog my pores. I like to add essential oils for fragrance, but this butter has a sweet nutty scent on its own. A little goes a long way, so this batch should last you several weeks. Enjoy!

p.s. Make it a gift! Put your body butter in a glass jar and add a cute tag to it. Voila!

Hubby Hats and Pouring Rain

So I am browsing through Book People Blog and enjoying it immensely. I am busy pinning items and printing patterns when I realized I could put comments on my new blog.
I recently got one and haven’t posted anything yet. I wanted to write a nice introduction and add some photos.
However it didn’t seem to immerge so I will jump in by saying this hat is a great design. My husband would not wear a hat but one of my sons adores hats and in honor of him I have set up a board on Pinterest called A Mans View From The Top. I have collected many crochet and knit beanies for the guys. So far a few people are following the board and I can easily choose which hat to make for my son before winter.
Hopefully I will be able to focus soon so I can give some background info on myself and explain what I would like to share on my blog gottagetagift. There is a story behind this name too.
