Thieves Laundry Soap

Did you know that you can get a free bottle this month?* 

You may think oh big deal right? Think of everything you wash... Where does it go all day?  Your clothes touch your skin, your sheets that you lay on at night, and your pillow case.  Do you really want to be sucking in those chemicals from other laundry detergents all day and all night?  Or your kids? 24 hours a day, 7 days a week??  No?  Not me either.  Just google all the nasty chemicals in those store bought laundry soaps. Or even walk down that aisle in the grocery store! It is not a walk down a beautiful garden. It's totally synthetic. 

Growing up, I had sensitivities to different products ESP laundry detergent. My little girl also has skin issues which led me to essential oils nearly three years ago to effectively clear her skin up. So, I've always watched what we used. 

Thieves Laundry Soap smells amazing and cleans without all those chemicals! From sports clothes, whites, jeans to her fancy dresses, everything gets clean and smells fantastic! It also doesn't give me a headache like when I walk down the laundry detergent aisle at the grocery store. #chemicalfree 

The first load smelled so fresh, ahhh...  After a couple of loads, even my washer smelled super fresh. Anyone else fight with that all the time!? I love the fresh scent on the clothes and it has amazing essential oils in it among them Thieves! That's an amazing oil we use for maintaining our wellness too!  

With a plant-based formula, Thieves Laundry Soap gently and naturally washes your clothes, leaving them truly clean without any synthetic residue. Natural enzymes and powerful essential oils add to the formula’s strength to leave your clothes fresh and clean with a light citrus scent.

This tiny bottle packs a lot of punch!  It was so tiny when it came to my house and I'm like what???  Then, I noticed that this tiny 32 ounce bottle washed 64 loads!  That is crazy!  It's so concentrated which makes it cheaper to ship being it is so small for that much laundry! Why pay for water!? You know you do in other detergents! 😝

Thieves Laundry Soap can be used in all washers, including high-efficiency, and its highly concentrated formula (6X) will provide around 64 loads with just 32 fl. Oz (946 ml).

Top load washer 1/2 cap full; Safe for HE washer 1/4 cap full; Also good for handwashing. 

This is huge! You can get a bottle free with a Premium Starter Kit this month, jump on it quickly! It works with HE and traditional washers. You need to get some of this!

Latin America Project

The origin of the flan dates back to Rome, when they first started to keep chickens. It then passed to Europe after being conquered by the Romans. From Europe, Christopher Columbus brought the flan to Mexico and South America. I was surprised when I saw coffee flan and some other types including fruits like berries. 

Flan Mexicano (Mexican Flan)

"Delicious flan, you will love it!"
·         1 cup white sugar 
·         3 eggs 
·         1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk 
·         1 (12 fluid ounce) can evaporated milk 
·         1 tablespoon Mexican vanilla extract 
1.       Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
2.       In a medium saucepan over medium-low heat, melt sugar until liquefied and golden in color. You are carmelizing the sugar. 

It will take 20-30 minutes to get it to a smooth melted state. 

Don't be tempted to taste it or you will burn your finger or tongue. Helpful tip: keep some Young Living Lavender essential oil or Lavaderm nearby in case you burn your finger.  Http://

Carefully pour hot syrup into a 9 inch round glass baking dish, turning the dish to evenly coat the bottom and sides. Set aside.

3.       In a large bowl, beat eggs. Beat in condensed milk, evaporated milk and vanilla until smooth. Pour egg mixture into baking dish. Cover with aluminum foil.

4.       Bake in preheated oven 60 minutes. Let cool completely.
Here is what it looked like when we took it out. 

5.       To serve, take a knife and go around the glass dish to release the flam. Then, carefully invert on serving plate with edges, when completely cool. Best to cool in fridge for four plus hours and serve chilled.

This dish was creamy and delicious. It was a bit too cooked at the edge of the custard, which is better to eat first than last. Other than that, I loved the flan.

Found this recipe in a group I belong to and it looks awesome! Happy St. Patty's Day!!!


Free of grain, gluten, eggs, dairy & refined sugar.

1 Hass avocado
1/4 c. honey
6 T. coconut oil, melted
1 1/2 c. shredded unsweetened coconut
1-2 drops Young Living Peppermint essential oil (order at )*
dash of salt

1/4 c. coconut oil
2 T. honey
1/4 c. cocoa powder
1/4 t. vanilla extract (I like to make my own)
dash of salt

Line a 9×9 inch baking dish with foil. Place all ingredients in high powered blender (such as a Blendtec or Vitamix) or a food processor. Blend until smooth. (You can puree it if you want, but I like mine to have little flecks of coconut still.) Smooth mixture into prepared dish and stick in the freezer.

In small saucepan, melt coconut oil and honey over low heat. Remove from heat and stir in remaining ingredients. Pour over chilled bottom layer and return to the freezer for about 15 minutes, or until the chocolate layer is hardened. Remove from foil and cut into bars. Store covered in the freezer.

Cha2016 sneak peeks

The 75th anniversary of the craft and hobby association begins! 

The hot trend seems to be water colors. Tim Holtz and prima are two among many offering up options. It just reminds me of the stamping up water color crayons and the water brush. Perhaps, it's what's old is new or maybe there's a new twist or angle as Tim Holtz likes to put his spin on things?

All week Tim Holtz has been giving sneak peeks! Tim holtz has crayons which everyone seems to be chattering about. Check his blog for a whole week of posts. 

The prima offering just looks like a palette with pretty packaging. I'm leaning to say it's a grown up version of crayola.

I guess as industries are giving grown ups their own coloring books, they figure adults need their own crayons? Although I've seen many using copics with the adult coloring books. 

OLY*FUN™ fabrics remind me of a throw back to my friend's 80's Halloween wedding. He had a metallic sports jacket that he made. Oh if I only had that picture digitally at hand to show you what I mean. You can see their selection here:

Oh my! 12 more stickles colors! I remember the time these hit the market years ago! So many of us were clambering to get them all! I must confess that I haven't purchased them in years. Are these still a thing or are they like the skittles that were the rage? Do you remember dying the skittles with the alcohol inks?

Here's ranger inks press release:

My favorite part of each show is the display that graphic 45 has for their new launches in their booth. 
They have been doing sneak peeks on their blog each day this week. Here's the first one:

Enchanted forest would be great to create to showcase a London trip or around that area. 

City scales is great for European travel.

Ad tech has scented glue sticks. Apple, French vanilla, pumpkin pie and Christmas trees. I think that I will stick with diffusing Young Living essential oils instead that have therapeutic benefits. 

Either on trend or being pushed by a lot of marketing, it seems many are coming out with a plethora of planners. It appears that A5 is what most are offering. 

I'm old school and used a Franklin planner. I tend to use my digital devices lately but, am leaning to a smaller pocket size Franklin covey as of late. I love the real leather offer. Even a plastic and cardboard planner from a new hybrid company set me back around $80.  I thought I would check it out ESP as it had a rad color! Yep got me there! 

It seems many companies are offering different papers, washi tapes and other accessories. The design teams are showing you how to craft into your calendar. I wonder if we can get away with this during a board meeting or at our work desk? Um excuse me mr bossman while I go grab my copics to color coordinate my schedule and timeline. I'm not sure if they're trying to bridge the gap with hybrid calendars. I know I still have stacks of pictures trapped digitally on my computer. Even Becky Higgins hasn't cracked the code for my back log. 

Some of the companies offering calendar options are papers by graphic 45 in 12x12 and 8x8. Then, I've seen full on binders from the happy planner, Marion Smith, and Simple Stories. I am sure there are more. It seems there's a lot of companies jumping on board. 

What are you seeing as trends? Or do you just not get it?
