Candles for Yoga Instructor

I have put vinyl on LED candles at my home for different holidays. So when I seen my yoga instructor use a set of LED candles during the restorative practice; I thought it would be a nice idea to cut out some vinyl yoga symbols for her candles.

She is such a wonderful person and she loved this idea. This was so easy to do and they look very calming and beautiful in the studio.  Below are photos of the candles with the LED on and off.

Valentine's Sloth Card

I am not a card maker but, I do like them and try to make them.  So when I seen this cute little sloth Valentine's day card I thought it would be a cute one to try and make for my hubby.  He really liked it and it was not too hard or confusing for me to do.

Sublimation shirts for our grandgirls.

We have a newer heat press so we wanted to try and use the Revel S paper that allows you to sublimate on to cotton. With the Revel S paper your heat press must be at the right temp or it will not work.  This is why we purchased a new heat press.

 Most of the time I do the creations and my husband is the  one that deals with the sublimation printer and heat press.  All the shirts except for one is either 100% cotton or a cotton blend.  The one with the monkeys on them is 100% polyester and was done using regular sublimation paper.

Since I had the extra shirts and I was making them Valentine's day shirts I decided to go ahead and make some other cool shirts for them. 

Here is what we made for the grandgirls the ones on the left are for our older granddaughter and the ones on the right are for the younger one.

Adding to Valentine's day decoration.

I have had this heart shaped door hanger for a long time. But, this year I decided to add to it. So I took some of my craft paper and using my Silhouette Cameo I cut out my husband's and my initials then I  just tied them to the hearts.  As simple as it is I am really happy how it turned out.

Shower melts.

Here is what I did to make the shower melts for my daughter's  Valentine's day gift. 
I used a heart shaped mold with lavender essential oils, then I used an ice cube tray for lemon and peppermint.   One was for relaxing and the other to energize, here is the  link for the recipe.

The one thing I have learned is be patient and mix very slowly first dry then wet and do a little of the wet then stir.  Here are some photos of the process.  I forgot to get picks of the yellow ones done in the ice cube tray. I did the heart shaped ones over because they did not have enough color in them for my taste.  Even through the molds are silicone and most of the time the melts come out with no problem. I still coat the molds with fractionated coconut oil.
