Pancake Mix

Pancake mix always is a much-loved breakfast staple. Make these cute bags by ironing on the label to a premade bag, or if you sew the label can be printed directly on muslin ironed to freezer paper then printed with your printer. Yes! That is how I made this bag.

Sugar Scrub 

This is something I use every time I take a shower. It makes my body so soft and silky!

Homemade Bath Bombs

Another one of my faves.  I think Epsom salts soak the stress right out of your body. These bath bombs are even more relaxing with the addition of essential oils.
