This Homemade Body Scrub recipe is quick, easy, fun, and best of all, it can be personalized using your favorite fragrance(s). You can add your own favorite fragrance or fragrance combination with the use of essential oils. A few of my favorites are lavender, grapefruit or lemon, and coconut. Or what about a grapefruit coconut combination? Lovely!

I’ll pop on there to find an idea for plantings for a new flower bed, then end up wanting to make paper flowers because, ya know, there may be sometime I need to know how to make paper flowers.

I’m pretty handy with things, but I’m also blessed with my own handy man, Randy, who also serenades me with song, and can do a mean shadow puppet on the fly. Handy Randy took charge of this one for me. I told him what I was thinking as far as size goes, and that I wanted a simple chalkboard without a frame, nothing fancy.
