DIY Fabric Softener

Do you love homemade products as much as I do? I feel like it has that luxury boutique vibe. Bonus: you know exactly what’s been added and personalize the ingredients to fit your own likes and preferences. With my goal to create a chemical free home, I switched to a laundry detergent without chemical and synthetic fragrances. I also use wool dryer balls in place of toxic dryer sheets. Then I saw a recipe for a fabric scent and softener booster and adjusted it just a bit.

What I used: (affiliate links for my exact products)

What I did:

 

Add all ingredients to stainless steel bowl and mix thoroughly with a stainless steel whisk. That’s it! How easy was that?! Transfer to glass or stainless steel container. *Note: Use stainless steel/ceramic/glass when using citrus essential oils. 

Usage: Add 2-3 scoops to laundry in the washing machine basin either before or after adding clothes then begin wash cycle.

Thoughts: The scent is super faint but fresh and subtle and laundry feels softer!

DIYShowOff weekly recap:

I had hoped for some DIY to share but this week I am enjoying the company of my daughter and grandson who moved away to Colorado. They’re home for a visit and guess what you guys! 

WOO HOOOOOO! Want to hear what has me smiling super big? Guess who gets to go back to feeling like a grandma in person again instead of only when FaceTime feels like connecting?! Yep! This girl! They are coming back, you guys! (My daughter and grandson moved from PA to CO.) Let’s celebrate! Hugs all around! Fist bumps! High fives! Happy dance! Tears of joy! Excited girl screams! Jumping up and down! And a grateful heart! God is good and I’m so thrilled! I just might be inspired to start a grandma support group & community to connect with others who agree that being a grandma is the best.thing.ever! lol

And this isn’t DIY related. Well, technically, I’m not having a professional application and I’m learning the ropes, but I’m having the best time playing with Young Living’s new Savvy Minerals makeup line. I used to struggle find cosmetics without harmful ingredients. I love that Young Living came up with a solution.

I really thought it’d be overwhelming…so many powders.But it’s not hard, just different and I love the ability to blend and the versatility of each product.

Summer is my favorite season! Beautiful warm and breezy days, outdoor fun, swimming, walks, sunshine, summer rain storms and longer days. That dose of vitamin D makes me happy!!!

I personally have the type of skin that tans easily but I’ve accidentally gotten too much at once too and LavaDerm Cooling Mist promotes healthy skin. It’s a refreshing blend of skin-loving ingredients such as aloe, Lavender, Northern Lights Black Spruce, and Helichrysum to gently support healthy-looking skin. Its mild and gentle formula lightly moisturizes while also soothing and rejuvenating skin. Incorporate its refreshing feel and calming aroma into your nighttime routine or use it as needed throughout the day. The compact and convenient design of this skin moisturizer spray makes it easy to store wherever you need it, whether in your purse, travel bag, bedside table, or office desk. If you’re sensitive to the sun, it’s a must have. Takes the sting away!

And speaking of too much sun. Young Living just released an After Sun Spray! It’s thixotropic! That means you can hear the liquid when you shake the bottle but it sprays on in a more solid gel-like form and rubs in easily. It’s good for all things healthy skin including bug bites, cuts and scrapes. Another summer must-have! 

Promote healthy skin with LavaDerm™, Young Living’s refreshing Lavender spray. It’s made with skin-loving ingredients such as aloe, Lavender, Northern Lights Black Spruce, and Helichrysum to gently support healthy-looking skin. Its mild and gentle formula lightly moisturizes while also soothing and rejuvenating skin. Incorporate its refreshing feel and calming aroma into your nighttime routine or use it as needed throughout the day. The compact and convenient design of this skin moisturizer spray makes it easy to store wherever you need it, whether in your purse, travel bag, bedside table, or office desk.

But as Benjamin Franklin once said, “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure”. So I have this newly released product on hand as well…Mineral Sunscreen Lotion! Made with ingredients you can feel good about, Young Living’s Mineral Sunscreen Lotion provides protection against UVA and UVB rays without harsh chemical ingredients. Instead, the non-greasy sunscreen offers broad-spectrum SPF 10 protection using naturally derived plant- and mineral-based ingredients, including non-nano zinc oxide—a physical UV blocker. The lightweight formula goes on smooth and stays water- and sweat-resistant for 80 minutes, so you can feel comfortable while you stay moving. With hypoallergenic ingredients and skin-loving essential oils—such Helichrysum, Carrot Seed, and Frankincense—this gentle sunscreen rubs on smoothly without a white residue, so you can effortlessly add it to your time outdoors.

We keep a DIY version of ‘outdoor’ spray on our patio table or right inside our back door. I spritz the dog before she goes out. Hubby sprays himself before walking down to the garden or working in the yard. And we haven’t needed special pet collars or pricey chemical-laden doses.  summer fun with essential oils @diyshowoff  

And then Young Living JUST released an Insect Repellent – DEET free and EPA approved. No more blood sucking mosquitoes! Don’t let bug bites ruin your family’s outdoor fun this summer! Young Living’s Insect Repellent is clinically proven to repel mosquitoes and other tiny invaders using only 100 percent naturally derived, plant-based ingredients.

Summer’s a fun time for road trips. I LOVE this combo! Add it to a wooden clothespin or felt with a clothespin to clip to the vehicle’s air vents!

I’m so excited! It’s time for the dining room reveal! If you like what you see, I’ve included some affiliate links below. Okay, here we go! My dining room was neutral to start…

The Before:  Color Lovers series! @diyshowoff dining room before   Color Lovers series! @diyshowoff dining room before Color Lovers series! @diyshowoff dining room before

My dining room has very little natural light. So adding fun colorful elements took it from gloomy to cheerful! Hey, I’m a neutral loving girl too, but I was ready for some fun pops of color in that bland uninspired dining room.

The Plan: (see THIS post for more details)…my design board included a beautiful color combination of navy and chartreuse, blush and gray. 

Color Lovers series! @diyshowoff dining room design board: navy, blush, chartreuse and gray

…finally, a room with some fun personality and color! Decorative accessories + paint = a color lovers’ dream! I love the power of paint, don’t you? Take a look!

5 Friday Favorites

TGIF! Happy Friday friends!!! Ever look at someone’s photos and wonder where the heck they snagged something so fun and fab? Me too! And I’m often asked about certain items from photos in blog posts and social media so I figured a round up of favorite things was due. Because if you’re nebby like me, inquiring minds want to know.  Some of the links below are affiliate links, some just linked for your convenience. So here goes: 5 Friday Favorites…

5 friday faves

1. With a healthier lifestyle including whole foods and cutting way back on sugar consumption, this whipped cream maker is a must! Seriously! 30 seconds and 2 ingredients (we do heavy whipping cream and 1 stevia packet) is all it takes and I have a great dip for fruit or topping for (this) pie which my husband made and I.LOVE.it! I could eat it every single day…as as far as desserts go, it’s pretty guilt-free. You NEED this kitchen gadget! Also check out: the new ice-cream maker, brownie pan and the wine essential tools! My sweet friend Sharon, a Pampered Chef consultant, set up a party to shop from:

Oh my. Looks like I could use some food photography tips.

Any recommendations?

I might get drafted if Russ ever starts his food blog! 

2. & 3. Hey floral patterns are NOT reserved for grandmas! But yes, I’m a proud grandma and I love this floral raglan and these new ‘roses’ shades are my favorite this summer.

4. And this next one I bought for working out but recently paired it with a cardigan. Perfect for a girls’ night out, right which is almost like going to the gym. It’s up and off the couch. So very similar, right? Besides. it’s so cute and well, you COULD wear it to the gym, so versatile too!

5. And last but not least, I made up some foaming hand soap recently with the help of my trusty sidekick and little grand buddy. He is so sweet! He’s back to being two time zones away so I sometimes watch this video daily to get that kiss. ::hold me:: 

 

No video bells and whistles…adding video editing course to my list of things to do but really, we were just hanging out and decided to do a video. isn’t he a natural? lol!

Okay, that was fun! I don’t know that I’ll do this every week but I hope you’ll enjoy the occasional series of my 5 Friday Faves! Enjoy the weekend!

DIY Personalized Pool Party Gift Tote

Cannonbaaaaallllllll!!!

Summer pool parties are so much fun, aren’t they? Woo hooooo! Summer in my family is filled with days at my mom’s pool, watching my nieces and nephew giggle and splash around. I love that they’ve learned to swim so well and enjoy watching them overcome their fear of water over the years.

“Pool-rific” is the Michaels’ June Challenge. Perfect timing!

Kicking off pool party season this past holiday weekend, I gifted each of them with a cute personalized beach bag filled with fun outdoor goodies, swim accessories and beach towels.

Supplies I used are all available at Michaels with the exception of the beach towels.

  • Sharpie markers
  • letter stencil
  • plastic container
  • fill ‘er up: sunglasses, bubbles, plastic water bottles with carabiner, assorted dive toys
  • beach towel
  • optional: toss in some sunblock and flip-flops!

Whether you’re looking for fun décor, activities for your kids or cute party supplies, Michaels has everything you need to MAKE summer fun!

What I did:

Using a pencil and a yardstick, I drew a faint line onto the upper part of the tote bag so that my personalization would be level.

Then I used a pencil to stencil the letters.

I filled in the letters with Sharpie markers. There was a little bleeding (due to the tote bag material) but I actually like that affect, don’t you? It adds to the design!

The plastic bucket/container fits perfectly inside and helps the tote back hold an open shape. Perfect for toting home a wet bathing suit too!

Toss in fun accessories.
