Lip Balm

With the winds here in West Texas lip balm is a required accessory with out a doubt. Not only can it get expensive but they can contain countless numbers of ingredients I would rather not put onto my lips. So I searched around and found a way to make an all natural lip balm that is just AMAZING! Problem was all the directions I found were very difficult to understand and the amounts were even trickier.

1 Cup of Soy Wax Flakes(Can be purchased on Ebay or other wax distributors, you'll have to order by the pound which will yield 2-3 cups)
1 Cut Coconut Oil(Can be bought at any Walmart it is cheapest down the baking isle)
2 Teaspoons Sunflower Oil(Also down the baking isle at Walmart)

I used an old soup can to melt it down because I do not have a double boiler. Place can into a small pot of water filled with about an inch of water. Heat on medium heat till completely melted stirring occasionally. Remove from the pot and heat after melted. Depending on how smooth you want it stirring till it starts to cool and become milky will produce the creamiest lip balm. This will make quite a few containers so make sure to have enough to pour about 2 cups of liquid into. I found some great little heart container at the Dollar Tree :O)

Jello Hard Candy

Most hard candies call for corn syrup, but since I was out and I have 3 children home I decided to experiment and make something fun! Here is what you need:
2 Cups of Sugar
2 Cups of Water
1 Package Sugar Free Jello
A candy Thermometer

Making candy is a pretty tricky process and trust me I messed up a batch or two getting this to work right.lol Put the sugar and water into the pot and turn on medium whisking well till the sugar is dissolved. Stirring pretty regularly to help the sugar from burning. As the sugar begin to boil turn the heat up to high. Watch your thermometer when the candy reaches 230 pour in the jello continuing to mix. Pour this mixture immediately into a cake pan that is lined with parchment paper of you can rub a little veggie oil in it. The candy will continue to cook as it melts anything over 230 you will be left with a burnt candy that tastes like licorice.lol After you candy is cooled completely turn it out onto a cookie sheet and break apart :O) I like to dust mine …

Recently I was lucky enough to be given a chance to review The Children's Place. With summer time in full force here in West Texas getting some new summer time clothing was not only a needed thing but a fun thing to do. We decided to try out The Children's Place online ordering. I had never done this before and with a packed schedule it was very handy! My daughter loved sitting don and being able to pick out an entire outfit for under $25.

Rubbermaid Hidden Recycler Review and Giveaway

Recently I was given an amazing opportunity to review a new product by Rubbermaid called the Hidden Recycler. As a family who does a lot to help our planet in many ways this was an exciting opportunity. I loved the fact the Rubbermaid not only made a product that would help my family continue their recycling more easily but they reduced packaging to merely a cardboard sleeve that I could in turn recycle. I quickly opened the package like a kid at Christmas and discovered it would not fit my kitchen cabinets :O( we are in the middle of a kitchen remodel and the layout of my old cabinets would not hold the brackets.  So as I sat down to gloat about not being able to use this amazing product, and I notice two holes on the lid and made a massive dash for the directions. Sure enough I can attach it with screws! (Which ironically took me forever to find in our construction materials) I found the perfect place for it in my laundry room and began putting all of Rubbermaid's claims to the …
