My Return!!!!

Hello my darlings, its been awhile and heres my story.  Back in October of 2014 I was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma.  I started an intense Chemo treatment that last about 6 months.  In April of 2015 I finished my chemo treatment.  This April (2016) marked a year of no chemo and I am Cancer free.

I am so thankful for all my family and friends that were there for me during this time.  It was a tough road to travel and the road to recovery is also just as tough.

I just want to say that Im back to blogging so stay tuned to posts about life, school, sewing and everything in general.

STAY TUNED!!!!

DIY COUGH DROPS

Here is a recipe for some pretty cool tasting coughs drops.  I was inspired to make them when my daughter and husband both caught a cold and passed it on to me.

You will need
- 2 cups organic sugar
- 1/2 cup water
- 1/2 cup raw honey
- 1/4 cup butter
- Drops of Essential Oils ( I used 4 of Thieves and 4 of Lemon)
I only use Young Living Essential Oils and only suggest using them if you decide to make this recipe. 
Their oils are 100% pure and natural with no other ingredients added to them.

1. Put all the ingredients except the oils in a heavy pan and cook over medium heat until it reaches that hard rock stag.
2.Do not rush this process, turning the heat up will cause this to burn.
3.Once it boils down and reaches the hard rock stage, remove from heat.  Wait about 30 seconds then add your oils and mix.
4. Pour your mixture onto a greased cookie sheet.  Fold the edges into the middle untill it is cool enough to handle. Once cool enough form into a ball and stretch it out.  I used a knife to cut my pieces but you can use scissors.  Cut into nice size pieces. It seemed like they would soften up a bit so I put them on a cookie sheet and flash froze them.  This step is optional.  I then placed them in a zip-lock bag and stored them in the freezer to keep them hard.



DIY Carpet Refresher

I really do hate having carpet, I so much prefer wood floors. The house we bought had carpet and my family likes it.   The kids love to be able to lay on the floor, play , jump etc... They say woods floors are cold.

The problem is, that just vacuuming does not make the room feel clean or fresh.  I have used carpet refreshers before, but prefer not to since they have chemicals in them and my kids literally roll around on the carpet.
Here is a recipe I found on how to make you own.

DIY  Carpet Refresher
1 1/2 -2 cups of baking soda
20-30 drops of your favorite essential oils ( I used both Peppermint and Orange)
A container with holes poked out.  ( I used an empty Parmesan cheese container)

Put the baking soda into your container, add your oils, shake it till its mixed up pretty good.
Then all you need to do is sprinkle some on your carpets and vacuum.
