A busy day around the home-front. After the chiropractor appointment I stopped by our co-op store to pick up a few items. I was so excited when the gal checking me out mentioned they are going to be starting a work/membership. If you can volunteer there for about 3 hours a week you will be qualified for their membership which will also include 25% off! After that I stopped by the Dollar Tree to pick up a few containers and was very pleasantly surprised at the art isle, nice deals! So finally got home and put a second coat on my crafts!

These are little Mason jars and I am hoping to use them as garden makers. I will have to put some kind of weather protecting coat on them before that. The other idea that I had was to paint them more like my doTerra oil bottles and use them as magnets to give away at one of my classes. Yes I said classes, I have decided my teaching days can not be over. However, the age of my students might vary, and I will be teaching about something that I really love, use, and want to share with others!

My little shutter received a second coat of paint and today at the dollar tree I was able to pick up some adorable mini clothes pins. this will go lovely together. I am hoping to use this as part of my oil presentation for on line and in class, Hopefully I will be able to display some pictures and recipes!

A little view of the one planting table from the indoor garden. As you can see I am really running out of room. However, I will squeeze as much as I can in every inch because I LOVE planting!

I do not normally do very well in the kitchen department, but today I decided it was time to give it a whirl. The above picture shows a pumpkin/cranberry/nut cake with a hint of lemon! That's one of the many reasons I love doTerra oils because you can digest them!

It took a very long time but here is the almost finished product. The last step is to add the pumpkin glaze which needs to be done once it cools. Of course I did not have the patience to wait that long because I have a duty to my loyal blog followers to get a blog out!


  1. Awesome finds at the dollar store. Loving that little shutter. Your indoor garden is coming along magnificently, and now with the baking, look at you go. Great job.

  2. Thank you for all the kind words!I hope the little shutter turns out!
