So I recently purchased this beautiful handmade sign to go on my fireplace mantle via Amazon, but made by Schafer Art Studio.
I didn't know much about this company at all prior to ordering, I just really liked this sign. I love handmade items, especially if they are inspirational! I began to inquire a little about them and found that they really do some fabulous work! I reached out to Paige, one of the owners who responded to me immediately. She was so sweet and offered to send me one of their beautiful hand made leather journals.
This journal is beautifully made and has that wonderful leather smell! I love what this company does and what they stand for. Please Like them on Facebook (Schafer Art Studio) and check out their work. One of the other reasons I love their products, is beacuse each piece they make...they send a personal note with it. They make some great gifts for those hard to buy for people in your life. They are also on Etsy for those who want to shop! www.etsy.com/shop/SchaferArtStudio
Thank you Paige for the time and love you put into this beautiful journal!
I have had the opportunity to work with Anjou http://www.anjou.com and I absolutely love their essential oils! They were so kind to send me their Sweet Orange essential oil. It smells heavenly! There are so many uses for essential oils. I wanted to share just a few that I have had recently. Please visit their website I listed above to read more about them and their oils.
I first tried this by adding it to my coconut oil that I use as my hand and body moisturizer. I added 1 drop to an amount of oil enough for my hands and arms. I love the aroma of the sweet orange and oh how refreshing it was to smell this throughout the day.
I added several drops to my afternoon bath. As my daughter was taking her nap I enjoyed the most relaxing bath ever! It was a bit cloudy outside and it really felt like a fall/winterish day. Nothing better than a warm bath infused with Sweet Orange essential oils from Anjou! Seriously, you all must try this and give as a gift for the holidays. It really made me feel happy, relaxed and refreshed all at the same time. I do have some back tightness issues and this particular oil did seem to help with the stiffness more so than when I only have a warm water bath.
Freshening the Kitchen
I added several drops of this oil to a warm bowl of water to wipe my counters and cabinets off in my kitchen. After all the cooking I did this weekend, it really needed some freshness! The sweet orange oil was the best! It not only made it smell wonderful and clean, but it also gives you that fall/festive frangrance as well. You can use more drops for a stronger smell considering this is going on a hard surface and not your body.
I am a stay at home mom, wife and full time blogger. I love people and I love helping them pull out that creative side and to love who they are. I aspire to inspire and leave large footprints.
