A Hodge Podge

 One of the first things I do on Tuesday is to check the Silhouette Library to see what new designs have been added and what the free shape of the week is.  I loved this little recipe box, in the library it has a spoon with the words recipe, so I took those out and just cut the box.  Then had some fun with my "Dylusion" dies and a tea bag, first I spritzed the colors "London Blue", "Pure Sunshine" and "Squeezed Orange", then sprayed it with a little rubbing alcohol, gets those little molecules dancin lay the box down and just squash it around, then I spritz a black tea bag with a little "Fresh Lime" and just dab it around.
 I love this bottle and label so put it on the back and on the right side will be a tag with the recipient's name.
 the little box will hold 40 index cards.  I love blending essential oils and I love using them on their own and often share with friends and family.  A week does not pass that someone will email me and say "what oil do you use for so and so?", so I am going to write down my most favorite oils with descriptions of what they are best used for.  Here's a good one, lavendar essential oil is credited for saving the lives of thousands during the outbreak of the plague in Paris, they washed the streets with it.  Up until 1907 the floors of the slaughter houses in Chicago were washed down at night with Lavendar.  It is one of my top 10 favorites.
This is the freebie of the week, it is a print n cut and just makes up the cutest card all on its' own with nary an embellishment, I did add a little flourish ribbon on the right side.  So, that's it, hope your day is a creative one, hugs
