There’s nothing better than something thats so easy to make, that it makes us go, uh! That’s easy enough, I can do that, love it lol. I am so lucky, I get to work with craft ideas all day long, even on my days off I am doing craft.

Relax in a nice hot bath when you make your own beautiful lavender bath salts, this one has to be my favourite’s of all our craft ideas, I’ve designed a label to pop on top of a recycled jar. This is so you can make extra up to give to someone as a present, I have and it’s well received and everyone just loves it, the smell is devine.
