In that little bottle is lemon essential oil and water. It's my "spider-be-gone" spray. Apparently spiders don't like lemon, if they step in it they'll go away. So it won't kill them, just keeps them away :) Funny story (kinda): Last summer I was getting mosquito bites ALL OF THE TIME. Like for months, I would always have a little bump somewhere on my body from a spider! Sometime's I would have 3 or 4 bites at a time. Horrible. But then I started using this spray and no more bites! Magic.
That jar is my happy memory jar. Very simple concept: if something makes you happy, write it on a paper and put it in a jar. Doesn't even have to be a jar, could be a box, an envelope, an old mug, anything! I started this at the beginning of the year and will look at all the happy memories in December! I think it's a great way to start teaching yourself to count your blessings, to stay positive, to look on the bright side of things, and all that good stuff. For mine I painted dots on it and then with a hot glue gun wrote "Lovely moments in 2013" in cursive and while it was still wet, I sprinkled glitter on it :)
I looovveee how these magnets turned out! I took cardboard (from the packaging of tea), painted a couple coats of paint on it, wrote random silly words on it with a permanent marker, then added a coat of mod podge then glued on a magnet on the back! So simple! But so cute and practical!
For these organizing jars I just took pretty pages out of Seventeen magazine, taped the ends together to form a loop/tunnel, then stuck them in a jar! Really great for storing makeup brushes and other toiletry type items :)
I thought this was a perfect eyeliner holder. Or at least really really great considering how simple it is. I took an old can with a pretty label and added tissue paper at the bottom. It's perfect because it's pretty, and can hold all my eyeliner vertically. I always store my eyeliner that way so the liquid liner doesn't pool in the lid. It also keeps them falling over so easily! Before I had them all standing up, but then they'd all fall every time I reached for one.
And that's it for now! As you can tell (and as I said before) these are all super simple, and I bet you've seen these before. But they're all cute and super versatile!
Hope you have a good weekend!
