look what arrived in the mail today

This lovely smelling package arrived on my doorstep this morning
and I can not explain what a good feeling it is to have it.

In the last month or so I have really been focusing on making a few purchases happen
so that I can start really "being green"
in terms of making my own beauty and cleaning products.

I have wanted to do this for years
and yet getting the recipes and supplies has never made it to the top of the
"to buy this month" list.
Thanks somewhat to my awesome friend at whilethechildrensleep
and Megan from Mousehouse who have provided inspiration.

Actually I have now over spent for this month.
But I feel like I'm always dreaming of doing things which don't happen.
This makes me feel useless which I am not
its simply that living on the student allowance
with some part time work does not make us wealthy.

I am also happy about getting today's mail as it means the following can happen:
1. I can use the cute little glass bottles I have been collecting for years.
2. I can make them look pretty with cute printable free labels I have spent time searching for
or I could paint them with the black board paint recipe I found on pinterest.
3. I can clear out all the harsh chemicals from our cleaning cupboard.
4. I can make my home more organised.


Basically I can reuse and reorganise. Things I LOVE to do.
AND my family and I will so enjoy using the gorgeously smelling products
in our home and on our skin.
