TGIDIYFriday: Laundry Soap + Free Tag

Hi friends! Earlier this year, the gals at hi, friend and I vowed to bring you practical and useful DIY’s in 2013. You know, stuff you can actually put to work in your home.  And guess what was on the top of our list? Laundry detergent! Although this DIY is floating around the blogosphere, we’ve put our unique stamp on it and created downloadable tags that perfectly complement this craft.

For the step-by-step instructions for our May DIY, click here.








The beauty of DIY detergent is that it lasts forever. So grab your ingredients, print off a few labels, make up a batch…and you’ll have gifts for an entire year!


TGIDIYFriday: Eucalyptus Bath Satchets

Happy first Friday of the month, friends! It’s once again time for a little TGIDIYFriday action. I’m over at hi, friend today giving a step-by-step tutorial on how to make bath satchets. You see, I’m a sucker for a hot bath after a long day and adding a little eucalyptus into my nightly routine seemed like a grand idea. The plant is  known for its sinus clearing powers and it smells fresh and lovely too.

Per usual, this month’s DIY is practical and easy. You know how we roll. Again, for instructions on creating bath satchets, click here.






Hope everyone has a happy weekend:).


TGIDIYFriday: Hardcore Hair Combs

And we made it to February! I must admit, there were days I didn’t know if we’d make it past January, but it’s here. See ya later, longest month ever. It’s not only a new month, but it’s the first Friday of the month, and you all know what that means! It’s TGIDIYFriday today, and I’m handing over the reins to Meg from hi, friend design for a little DIY hair comb action.

Enjoy your weekend and happy DIYing:).

Free To Do List Download

As I’ve expressed before, 2012 was a messy year. I forgot how to use the word “no” and way over-committed myself in practically every aspect of my life. Now, I’m trying to pick up the pieces. Upon hearing about my busy schedule and crazed lifestyle, my dear friend Meg shared a “ To Do” list she’d created. I immediately printed it out and have been using it daily. It not only gives me a snapshot of what my focus items are for that day, but it also maps out an area for me write “things I’d like to do today” and “things I’d like to do someday”.  It’s brilliant. It not only captures what I MUST do that day, but it also highlights the things I’m dreaming about. It’s the perfect list for someone like me….someone who’s brain is just not thinking about today.

I’m super pumped to report that Meg is letting us all in on her little organizational secret, and her lovely To Do list is now available for downloading here.

Meg – thanks for saving me and my unorganized thoughts and life. Here’s to hoping you all put Meg’s list to good use too!
