I’m making a little package for my sister.
Inside is a little burnt-edge poppy brooch.
Inspired by the tutorial at A Lemon Squeezy Home.
A little white organza flower hair clip.
Courtesy of the tutorial by Disney at Ruffles and Stuff.
One of my ruffle flower brooches.
(This one is super ruffley.)
And a nifty jersey knit produce bag thanks to the tutorial at Delia Creates.
I’m also including some super awesome homemade deodorant. It really is the best.
I hope she likes her package!
What oh what does this cute little tin hold?
Why, deodorant of course!
I got together with a friend of mine and made deodorant using a recipe from the Chicken.
3 Tablespoons shea butter
3 Tablespoons baking soda
2 Tablespoons corn starch
2 Tablespoons cocoa butter
2 vitamin E oil gel caps (puncture and squeeze out the oil)
Essential Oil (we did sweet orange and lemongrass because that’s what I had)
It’s not antiperspirant (no yucky chemicals by the lymph nodes)
So far it’s better than the Tom’s of Maine stuff I was buying at Target.
But it’s only been a day so we’ll see.
And besides that Tom’s stuff did NOT work for me.
I have high hopes.
If it doesn’t work out then I’ll give it another shot.
