Since I've been stamping, my absolute favorite stamper to follow was Faith Horfrechter, you can see the card that I CASED in her SCS gallery
So this is the front of it. Someday, I'll decorate the front to make it pretty. For now, I was just glad that he could open it mere hours after it was finished and wrapped! I got tips and tricks on quiet book covers from First time mom... and losing it
Got the idea and info for the page at little miss stitchers
A Quiet Book Blog, which is just a wealth of ideas, tips, and tricks! I got my templates from another site though, keep looking!
I got it from Sunshine, Lollopops, and Rainbows. Her template for the barn is also there :)
Thread Riding Hood. As you can see, I did mine a bit different, mainly due to only being able to use what supplies I had on hand. Not too shabby for making due with what I had, though :)
I got the idea for the beaded counting page from Sugar Bee Crafts
I have lots of great ideas on my "quiet book" pinterest page, feel free to take a peek and pin away!
Hope you all had a Merry Christmas!!

Yay for homemade products!
I got the idea/recipe from: http://teacupsandpearls.wordpress.com/2013/11/15/frankincense-and-cinnamon-winter-balm/
In her recipe she didn't specify amounts... I used 1/4 cup of cocoa butter, 1/4 cup beeswax, 1/2 cup of coconut oil, and 7 drops of EO.
Excited to hear the reviews on them!

So I had the top of this quilt done the day before I went into labor (last Labor Day, ha ha ha), then I had a baby, life got crazy, and it sat in a drawer. FOR A YEAR!!
Grandparents took the littles for the day so i looked for a way to be productive. BAM! Quilt time :)
This little triangles were time consuming puppies, I tell ya! I really wanted them on there though, my grandma put them on mine & I remember sucking and chewing on them till I was like 10 or something. Yeah, probably younger than that, but you get the picture.
Love, love, love that fluffy backing I found for it, so cozy! My daughter felt it and reminded me that I still owe a quilt.... and she'd like the back to be just. like. that.
Guess you know what I'll be working on for Christmas, eh?
Any who, love the way this quilt top was put together. TRIANGLES! Lots of triangles put together to make a chevron pattern. Genius.
So my 13 month old must be getting another tooth (about time, he only has 6 1/2!), he started with a low fever yesterday afternoon. He quickly decided his tummy hurt, followed by diarrhea. I put peppermint oil (1 drop, mixed with coconut oil) onto his tummy. Within 10 minutes he stopped crying and acting like it hurt. No more diarrhea either!
After bath time (which includes a few drops of lavender in the water) I rubbed lavender & thieves on the bottom of his feet, then reapplied the peppermint to his tummy and rubbed down his spine.
That boy slept for N I N E straight hours!! And woke up with NO fever!!
I'm lovin' these oils!
