I love collecting jars. I never know what to do with them, but none the less I have jars. I store my craft supplies in them. Buttons, tiles, beads, bottle caps. It's organized craft hoarding. Pickle jars are a popular size in my collection so that's what I started with. The chatted up a lady at Joanne's craft store about this paint. I didn't want chalkboard paint, or glossy enamel, but it needed to stick to glass and be matte. She suggested this. (Thank you nice lady it was exactly what I wanted). I decided to make fake labels, so I just masked the off an area with tape and painted. These are not perfect labels. Who cares. I needed a second paint to actually write the label, which I didn't buy. Update later
Jars with labels.
Now for the herb garden. I used some pebbles from my garden walk (shhh don't tell hubby). And some tiny broken tiles for drainage. It's a must have. Something for drainage. Your herbs will not grow. Potting soil was next and then I purchased some stater herbs. Today I used cilantro and cinnamon basil. Seeds will work to, but I'm impatient. I wanted the full effect today. Next time seeds. So now I just added the plants, water and a sunny spot. You can do this. It's easy.
Who has a project for all these lids I will have left over?
I'm always finding bottles on my walks. A perk for living in the city, I guess. Unfortunately lots of people just drop their trash wherever. I love up cycling so I'm always bringing home something to add to my ever growing stash of recycled art ideas. . This one I added turquoise and orange colored glass tiles, a ceramic heart, glass stars and a blue glob. White grout and it's sealed for water protection.

What's in your diffuser today? It's Tuesday and I need to be productive. Wednesday is trash day and honestly I forgot last week, so I still have last weeks trash and now this weeks trash. Joy. Lots of paperwork to go through so a mental helper is welcome. I have such a problem throwing out paper. Today I found bank statements from 2002. Ugh. Well business expenses need to held for 10 years, right. So I kinda have a reason. I'm just off by 5 years. Purge purge purge. How hubby and I owned several like 15-16 rental homes and let's just say a paperwork nightmare. Business sold and yet I have all this. I need to take some responsibility for my thousands of little scraps of notes. Haha. Ok maybe not thousands, but defiantly ideas, thoughts, and strategies. I've got quite a workout for the recycling center team today. I need a better system that's for sure. What are your problem areas? .
Let's help each other. I recommend as you get Lemongrass and rosemary essential oils . They are one of my favorite blends the mental boost they give me is amazing.
Go ahead oils, do your magic !

Glad my staples have arrived before the weekend. I'm addicted to this Einkorn granola. I have 3 bags! (It's cheaper in purchases 3's) Thieves, my multigreens supplements (it's like a green drink in a capsule) and the tranquil roll on, so I stay calm lol. These are just a few of my favorite things from Young Living. If your interested in starting your journey with young living essential oils & More! Www.getoiling.com/greenangela

I have quite the project ahead of me. Inventory. I have some items here, I have some items there. Oh I have some in the works, I have some I should just toss, as I'm never going to finish them. I do get bored and just don't feel the energy of the piece any more. I started to put a few items I came across in my photos into the store. I do have a few at a local gallery also. I need to pay a crazy fee just to place an "add to cart button". Not ready for that just yet. Because this is going to be a long process, what I am going to do is keep it turned off until I'm all set and loaded. If you see something you need I can invoice you via paypal or square and it's yours! If you would like I can also put it on ebay or etsy and give you a private sale that way. I'm just being frugal for a short time :)
I will be adding this piece to the store this week. Along with many others. This is going to be a class this spring. The art of mosaics is so stress relieving. We chat, break tiles, create fun art and sometimes solve some problems. Life coaching doesn't have to be all clinical.
"Tree" its as
simple as that it's just a tree This was an experiment with mixed media pieces. Beads, buttons, fancy ceramic heart pieces and lots of broken tile and glass. Ready to hang. $25. Shipping would be additional. I would have to measure it but it's around 12x12. #mosaic #recycledart #upcycled #mosaictree.
The question I receive the most is "Which diffuser do I like better?" Well honestly, I have only ever owned the Bamboo diffuser. It was the one offered in the Young Living kits at the time. After 3 years, it's still going strong (well it does huff and puff and grind, yes it grinds , a little) I love how the essential oils are dispersed into the room. I am hoping it lasts until I can earn the rainstone one, I like the look of it and the remote would be nice. Who am I kidding I will lose that remote. Haha just like every other remote I own. Although there are several, the tulip, the orb, one for the car, USB, bamboo, aria, rainstone ... For now I will just enjoy this one. You can see them all at www.getoiling.com/greenangela
Just felt like I needed a fresh blend today in the diffuser. I used young living essential oils. 2 drops of Lavender, 2 drops of Rosemary and 2 drops of lemon. Of course I can never get 2 drops sometimes, it's more. Then I've got to balance out another oil. I've never mastered the secret to dropping

I have the opportunity to work at a school with children who have special needs. Yesterday the class I worked with were age range 16-18. I4 students and myself discussed calming techniques. We made circles (basically pie shaped, like a balance wheel). Each pie slice we added what calms them down. The entries ranged from. Music, meditation, walking, quiet time, books, cake. Yes cake was an answer. My dog. Drawing. And so on. Several had these circles on taped to the desk. When they felt they couldn't communicate properly they are now able to just point to what they want. It helped them understand proper communication which also leads to
behavior modification. It also empowered them to know that they needed calming down and also that their needs are important and are being acknowledged. Mine included music, a warm bath, smells calm me down flowers, baked bread, essential oils,. Think about your list. What do you need to bring you back to your calm self? Do the people around you respect and acknowledge your needs. Why or why not?
Oregano is a powerful oil. It's also a hot oil. Oh yeah. It's hot. Please heed my advice and use a carrier oil. I generally use coconut oil because it's so universal. Other oils like almond or jojoba are also acceptable. I have been researching this oil as I've heard many good things about how it kills germs (Awesome study here --->>>www.hindawi.com/journals/ecam/2011/690346/
Upper respiratory and coughs can be greatly reduced with oregano.
This is my go to recipe if your ready to clear out the germs. I place it all in a roller ball and roll it on my feet, spine, & chest. It's stinky. You will sleep alone. Do not wear this to work, you may be sent home. If you want to diffuse it, obviously do not add the carrier oil. It will clog up your diffuser.
Orally. This is often a touchy subject. You need to do your own research on the benefits and/or risks of using oils this way. I put the above mixture in a gel capsule. But only if you have a top-grade, pure, ingestible form of oregano essential oil or oil of oregano. This method can provide immediate relief of your cold symptoms.
I'm learning something new everyday, come along with me on this wellness ride.
