I made an easy to make hand sanitizer today. The receipe is from my neighbour, who is very great and had made a sample for me to try before I made the receipe.
Tea Tree Hand Sanitizer
1 cup Aloe Vera Gel
2 teaspoons Rubbing Alcohol
1 1/2 teaspoons glycerin
10 drops tea tree oil
Mix in measuring cup and transfer to pop open container.
You probably have all of the ingredients in your cupboards already. Enjoy!
Today, I also made Christmas Ornament Dough, another receipe from my neighbour. A certain little ladybug had so much fun using the dough to create ornaments for Christmas gifts. He is very excited to give them as gifts.
Christmas Ornament Dough
2 cups Baking Soda
1 cup Cornstarch
1 1/4 cups water
Mix together in saucepan over med heat until consistency of mashed potatoes. Colour using food colouring. Cool before use, keep moist and bake creations at 250 deg F for 15 mins. Decorate with paint and seal with varnish.
We divided up the dough and used food colouring to create a few different colours of dough. I have discovered that blue food colouring is very vivid. I have no pictures to prove it, but my hands are still a slight blue colour. 🙂
I’ll have to post pictures of the ornaments soon.
Until that time, here is a picture of a butterfly (wish I could remember what type) from the Butterfly Insectarium in Newfoundland. It is a picture from a camping trip/family visit, we took in 2008. I love butterflies, so I just had to stop there and see them hatching and fluttering around. Isn’t the colour of this one beautiful.
Another picture I have to share is one that I know Big D loves. A picture of his Dad’s old pickup truck. I think it is one of my favorites, because of the colour. I’m sure he has lots of fond memories of camping trips in this truck.
Have a great day!
