Welcome To My Colorful World!

Welcome to my colorful world. I am a happy (most of the time!) wife, mom, MeMaw, artist, and art teacher. I am a follower of Jesus Christ. I also love to create, cook, nest, decorate, entertain family and friends, laugh, collect vintage stuff, snuggle my cats and dog, play outdoors, and so much more! In addition to all this, I also publish an online magazine with my dear friend, called Mermaids of the Lake. Oh, and I love a big cup of coffee with cream, a dry martini, red wine, blingy jewelry, pink lipstick, blue fingernail polish. I love color! Beautiful colors inspire, motivate, and move me!!! What's my favorite color? I can't choose. I love them all! Yellow, pink, red, turquoise, blue, purple, orange, green and every variation in between!

DIY Maple Sugar Scrub

Maple Sugar Scrub

Oh yum! Another deliciously-scented, amazing body scrub using ingredients from your kitchen pantry! I am so in love with these body scrubs. I have incredibly dry, sensitive skin during the winter months and my homemade body scrubs are saving me money and helping to keep my itchy skin healthy. You are sure to love them too!

  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup olive oil
  • 2-3  tablespoons pure maple syrup
  • Mixing bowl, measuring cups, spoon, measuring spoon
  • Jars or containers with tight fitting lids

Add all ingredients together in a bowl

Mix well

This recipe will fill three 1/2 pint wide mouth canning jars. Do not fill all the way to the top as it may overflow and leak.

In the shower, smooth on to wet skin. Rinse.
Enjoy your soft, healthy skin!

MUY MUY IMPORTANTE!!! VERY VERY IMPORTANT! Oil in your shower or tub can make it super slippery! So, use caution. Also, glass jars may not be a great idea for the shower - if you think you might be clumsy - use a plastic container! If you are giving these as gifts, you could even put it in a pretty, canning jar, but also add a little disposable plastic container for the shower.

I am planning on making a bunch of sugar scrubs for Christmas gifts this year. They are beautiful, practical, and decadent-feeling - a perfect combination for a thoughtful gift! Do you plan to make gifts this year?
