DIY Bath Bombs - perfect for mom!

We found the cutest easy idea for mom for mothers day! Who doesn't want to take a relaxing bath?! Head over to A Pumpkin and a Princess blog for the full tutorial.


from the blog: 

This recipe is similar to the peppermint bath bombs I recently shared. For the lavender bath bombs I used the plastic ornament molds like last time. You can also use silicone molds like I did with the snowflake mold. Have fun and play around with different molds and sizes.  I’ve been a bath bomb making machine lately and I can’t wait to give these to friends and family this holiday season. I plan to individually wrap them in cellophane bags and personalized gift tags. Want to make your own bath bomb gifts this year? Here’s an easy recipe with Amazon affiliate links to the products I used.
Supplies:
1 cup baking soda
1/2 cup Citric Acid
1/2 cup cornstarch
3 tablespoons epsom salt
2 teaspoons Sweet Almond Oil
3/4 teaspoon water
15 drops Lavender Oil
a few tablespoons of dried Organic Lavender Flowers
plastic ornament or silicone mold
Step one: In a large bowl combine baking soda, citric acid, cornstarch, epsom salt and dried lavender.
Step two: In a small bowl combine almond oil, water, and essential oil.
Step three: pour wet mixture into dry mixture. Mix with a whisk until fully combined. Test mixture by pressing a handful together. If the mixture doesn’t hold LIGHTLY, with a spray bottle, spray with water once or twice. Avoid adding too much water or the mixture will fizz and not form in the mold correctly. Once it’s the right consistency press mixture into mold and allow to dry at least 2 hours before removing. Set bath bombs on a soft towel to dry overnight. 

When you are done - bring it in to the store and we will custom wrap your gift just for mom!

May Home and Visiting Teaching

Our May Visiting Teaching Gift is so bright and cheery - you're going to want one for yourself! 



We've gathered 5 of our favorite inspirational quotes from the April 2015 LDS General Conference, and printed each one on a separate card. The 5 cards, plus a delicious package of old-fashioned sanded lemon drops are wrapped up in a box with a tag that reads, "A Box Full of Thoughts to Brighten your Day" (Inspirational Quotes from the April 2015 LDS General Conference) 


Each quote card measures approximately 3.5" x 3.5" and the box measures 4"x 4" x 2"


Our home teaching gift this month is a handout with multiple quotes from the LDS April 2015 General Conference... wrapped around a box of microwave popcorn (includes 3 packets of popcorn). 




Perfect for a couple or family to munch while they review some of the great teachings from conference.

Buy online here or in store.

April Home & Visiting Teaching




We've used a burlap, a satin coral, and yellow dot ribbon to tie it all up. The tag reads, "Have Courage and Be Kind." The title of the message from the Ensign is "The Attributes of Jesus Christ: Without Guile or Hypocrisy" 

We think the advice Cinderella's mother gives to her daughter to "Have Courage and Be Kind" fit so well with the theme of the message. It truly takes courage and kindness to be more like Christ, don't you think?



This month's Home Teaching message President Monson "Calls for Courage." 


We've included the full message from the April 2015 Ensign, 10 miniature Pixy Stix, and the tag reads, "Dust yourself off and answer President Monson's Call for Courage." The gift itself is about 4"x6"
