giveaway!

after getting lost and caught in the rain, i finally found the etsy lab! patrice and i learned how to make lip balm...and it's so much easier than i thought. there were quite a few people gettin' there lip balm on as well...

all you do is heat the base, we used a vegan base made of castor oil, palm kernel oil, avovado oil, coconut oil, aloe extract, carnauba wax, and candelilla wax. we decided to spice it up with coconut and vanilla flavors.

after it was mixed we just put it all in the tubes, let it cool...

put on the caps...

put on the cute little etsy labels...

and use liberally! :)

i was able to grab a couple on the way out, and i'm going to have my first giveaway! wahoooooooooooo! you too can enjoy your very own lip balm made with love by little ol' me! :) just leave a comment and i'll pick one on thursday...as i was typing that i thought, 'what if nobody comments?!' sarah and lisa, you better comment so i don't look like a dork! ;)

ok, so comment before thursday at 5pm and we'll see who will have silky smooth lips in no time!

I'm commenting!!!!! I want me some chapstick! Do you hear me!?!

Looks like fun. If it helps in the giveaway, I am on vacation and we just had a day reaching over 100. Honestly, if that doesn't scream coconut chapstick, I don't know what does...

Yum, I am the lip balm queen. I acquired a mango lip balm at the Gap and can't stop sniffing it. Any tropical scent is A-OK with me.

Don't you love those simple and quick crafts? I love making lip balms. Instant gratification (almost)

And getting lost can be half the fun, right? Especially when you are with a friend.
