Homemade Lip Balm

Good afternoon.  Hope the weather where you are is great.  It's supposed to be 87 degrees here today.  Sheesh. I don't like this hot weather in February. It's supposed to break the record for the hottest day in February today. What happened to our winter?  It hasn't even really been cold yet. If it's this hot this early, can you just imagine what our summer is going to be like?  I'm dreading it already.

Anyway, I found this recipe in the Farmer's Almanac, and thought it would be nice to share, especially with our ladies in the north where it's cold who get chapped lips.

Here is the recipe for Homemade Lip Balm.  You will need:

  • 1/3 cup melted beeswax
  • 1-1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon glycerin, USP, vegetable (you should be able to get this at the pharmacy).
And here is how you make it:
  1. Melt the beeswax over low heat in a double boiler
  2. In separate pan heat olive oil and glycerin, just to heat.
  3. Add beeswax to the olive oil and stir over low heat until combined.
  4. Pour into clean small glass jars or small tins. Allow to cool at room temperature, then seal with lids.

Happy Valentine's Day

This is the last of my valentine shares.  This is an ATC I made for my friend who collects them.

I really liked the way this one turned out.

Hope you have enjoyed my valentine's.  Have a fantastic Valentine's day.

Valentine's - Day 8

Day 8 is here...just to change it up a bit, I used stamps from The Angel Company for this card.

I love the little bees. This is a good card for my youngest granddaughter. She'll really like it.  Hope you do too.

Have a great day.

Valentine's - Day 7

Here is the 7th card I've made. Hope you like it.

The center of this card is also ATC sized.  I liked layering the different complementary cardstocks together.

Valentine's - Day 6

Here we are again...

This actually started out as an ATC. Then I layered it onto the geometric background, but needed it to be on something else.  It's kind of busy, but I still like it.

What do you think?

Have a happy day.

Valentine's - Day 5

I hope you are enjoying these cards...Here is another...

I'm really enjoying this stamp. It was $1 at Wal-Mart.  I'm trying to keep my cards simple this year.

Good morning!  Another day, another valentine...

Another very simple card.  A few dies and a punch.  Add a few pink rhinestones and you are done.

Hope you enjoy...
