Impressive..!! The all natural bug spray seems to be very effective and help one repel from all kinds of bugs with complete ease. However, one of my friends suggested me that mosquitorepellentservices.com is a website which has all the information about homemade mosquito repellents which help you to get rid of mosquito menace.

Cool! Really usefull and sweet, I definitely agree with that "door stops are usually not so stylish". I made my own too! And got one extra chair 'cause the one is not anymore playing a door stop ;) Thanks!

Melissa, did you print out your pics? You must make copies with a laserjet printer, like at the library, or you can take your photos to any copying place like kinkos. Or your job. Anywhere that has one of those huge printers. And you can use regular ol' copy paper. No special paper needed. I hope that helps someone. I noticed noone was getting answers. Any photo transfer you do will have to be copied on a laser printer. Wheter its transfering photos to wood with mod podge, or transfering to canvas, or fabric. Love this!!!
Melissa -Mar 25, 2015, 12:48PM
Okay so I bought 3 blender pens by chartpak there the same as you used in your blog I tried regular plain white paper and photo paper and nothing is working on wood or paper for my scrapbooks please tell me what I'm doing wrong

Hello! I would just like to note that cocoa butter can clog pores while she's butter is non-comedogenic. If you are like me with acne prone skin, I would suggest makeing it with no cocoa butter. Great recipe!
Jo Marie -Sep 22, 2014, 8:09AM
Thank you for the post! I would try this at home, I think it's better to make your own than buy in the market because you can assure that it is safe to use.

Post image for Herb-Infused Grapefruit Face Toner

As soon as spring hits, I become taken over by this incredible urge to incorporate fruits into everything I do. I want to eat them, I want to drink them, and I want to incorporate them into my beauty routine. Read more »

I having been using the recipe for oily/combination skin for almost a year and I love it. Also, I left the herbs in and kept the jar in the fridge, only taking out a little at a time, and it kept a LOT longer than 1-2 weeks. This is my only toner now.
Brittany -Aug 26, 2014, 1:06AM
Why is it that dried flowers and herbs must be removed? I was wanting to make a toner with witch hazel, essential oils and some dried lavender flowers but wanted to leave them in for looks. Wouldn't the other ingredients act as preservatives to keep the flowers from molding?

sea salt spray lover -Dec 07, 2014, 2:27PM
Okay, first I love the shells! Even though they are just for show, I feel like they add something that just makes the whole spray more natural. haha. Lavender is really great, but I am wondering what other options I can use? What about season spray scents like peppermint? Would that be too much? I guess there is only one way to find out! Thanks for this. Your pictures are incredible - love love love! Great DIY Sea Salt Spray.

Lydia - It doesn't take much for coconut oil to melt. Just the heat of your hands will do it. If you keep the spray in your bathroom where it's usually humid it should pretty much stay liquid :). I keep a tub in my pantry in my kitchen and it never returns to solid form.

I've been wanting to do this for a while...and finally did. I even made tealight candles. I had everything ready to give for presents, and then I tested one! Big old fire! I'm so glad I tested before giving. I used sticky bumps, and now trying to find a wax that won't burn the house down. Test before you give!!

Is it a specific porcelain paint you use for the water color effect, or can it be any porcelain paint?
