Crafty DIY Features

Furniture Ideas

Lots of entries of good projects, but some are significantly better than others. Of those, I am featuring my favorites of the last two weeks of linky parties:

1. DIY Cloche

By Tonya, from Chirping with Excitement.


Tonya also did a fabulous job and created a wonderful cloche, from scratch. Wow.

She used Sculpey (oven-baked clay) and punched in craft jewels & jewelry supplies. After baking, she sprayed the whole thing silver and added the rhinestones with superglue.

Ta-da!!! That’s it in a nutshell. More details on her blog, of course.

2. Healthy Homemade Beauty Products

Facial Moisturizer
makes 2.5 oz
4 TBS Pure Aloe Vera (drinkable kind)
1 tsp Vegetable Glycerin
6 Drops Jojoba Oil
1/4 tsp Sweet Almond Oil

Place all ingredients in a container. Shake before each use. After washing your face and following with the toner, squeeze a small amount in your hand and apply with your fingers. It will feel wet at first, but as it dries and absorbs, you will be left with silky soft skin.

Aloe Vera is amazing. Here are some things that it can do topically for your skin (this doesn’t include all of the amazing things it does for the inside of your body):
Halts the growth of cancer tumors.
Eases inflammation and soothes arthritis pain.
Protects the body from oxidative stress.
Nourishes the body with minerals, vitamins, enzymes and glyconutrients.
Accelerates healing from physical burns and radiation burns.
Replaces dozens of first aid products, makes bandages and antibacterial sprays obsolete.
Hydrates the skin, accelerates skin repair.

Vegetable Glycerin
Improves the health of skin
Softens the skin
Natural source of moisture
Helps retain moisture
May have a positive affect on skin conditions like skin cancers (non-melanoma) and psoriasis

Jojoba Oil is just as amazing. Here are some of the reasons to use it topically:
Wound treatment
Skin healing
Beneficial as a moisturizer, hydrates the skin, hair and nails while it provides nutrients
Provides a protective coating on the skin to keep bacteria and grime out and moisture in
Reduces and prevents wrinkles and stretch marks
Useful treatment for acne, skin wounds and to soothe mild infections
Hypo-allergenic, so it will not cause reactions on the skin and will not clog pores

Sweet Almond Oil
Help retain moisture
Reduces wrinkles
Adds a natural glow
Used on nearly any skin type, dry to oily
PS-Rub a dime sized amount into your scalp for healthier, thicker hair
