This week I tried another recipe from the current Book Club selection, A Green Guide to Natural Beauty, Hemp & Honey Lip Balm. For ages now I’ve been making manuka honey lip balm because of the extraordinary healing properties of the magical golden goop. Hailing from New Zealand, manuka honey comes from bees that pollinate the Leptospermum scoparium, a shrub or small tree that can grow up to 4m tall with profuse star-shaped flowers. Manuka honey is claimed to have anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, and anti-microbial properties. Applied topically, it is said to promote healing and reduce inflammation, with some sources saying it even prevents or heals the cold sore virus. garden therapy » Hemp & Honey Lip Balm

This morning I reorganized my makeup (which was previously scattered all over my bedroom dresser) in one of my dresser drawers. I used berry baskets, tea cups and small bowls to break up the space inside the drawer and then added all my makeup! I'm really happy with how it turned out. Makeup Organization
Jag fortsätter mitt organiserande av pysselmaterial med att vira broderitråd runt klädnypor. Snyggt och enkelt. Dessutom praktiskt eftersom man kan klämma fast trådändarna med själva nypan. Stitching Wire at klänypor - Embroidery floss on clothespins

Teacher Appreciation Week starts this Monday. (May 2–6, 2011) So, my oldest daughter and I decided to make something fun for her teacher. We made a Colored Pencil Vase. It’s so cheery and colorful. I especially love the simplicity of it. All you need is a container such as a can, colored pencils, a rubber band, a ribbon, a ruler and a black marker or sharpie.
