I'm a Lucky Girl!
I won two giveaways earlier this month! The first was this book, Homemade Fun, in a giveaway from Francesca at FuoriBorgo. She's a kindred spirit on the other side of the world. I first discovered her when she started blogging at the Simple, Green, Frugal Co-op. The SGF Co-op is a great source of useful ideas for Simple Living. I enjoy most of the writers there, but Francesca is my favorite. This book is full of WONDERFUL ideas of all sorts of activities to do with the kids. The directions are clear and the illustrations a delight. Do check it out!
The second giveaway was from Steady Mom. One of her sponsors, Graham Gardens filled a basket with the most delightful treats for our skin. How wonderful to be blessed with such delightful products especially during this crazy time where I am unable to make all I would like to make. I have tried most of the things in the basket and whole-heartedly say they are FANTASTIC!!! I've gotten pretty picky over these last few years with what I will put on our skin and I am enjoying all of these with no reservations at all. It all smells so heavenly and works so well. They have so many wonderful items available.
By the way, speaking of homemade body products, I wrote last year about making Homemade Vapor Rub. It has surprisingly become one of the most popular posts on here. I wrote an update to it at the end of the post today. We're all breathing a bit easier tonight.
