Don’t forget: last minute Thanksgiving details


If you’re living in the U.S., this week is a big week for many of us! Thanksgiving is only a couple days away, and because it is a time when many families and friends gather together to celebrate the things we’re grateful for,  we want things to be just right!  Hopefully  you’ve already got your turkey and the rest of your meal planned, but in case you’re still putting some of your Thanksgiving details together…

If you still need a great recipe for rolls, here is my family’s time- tested recipe for Crescent Rolls.

This veggie platter turkey is a pretty awesome way to keep grabby hands and growling tummies away from the rolls while finishing up dinner preparations!

Handmade, Organic Goodie Bag {Giveaway Month}

Organic Themed Goodie Bag Giveaway {HomeSweetHomebodies}

This is week 3 of our handmade giveaway month! Our first week we partnered with Drill Bits and Oven Mitts and gave away a beautiful, vintage reclaimed wood holiday sign. Last week, we gave away a gorgeous cable crocheted headband, as well as 2 pdf patterns for headbands from our boutique. This week, I am excited to present a luxurious, all natural, organic-themed goodie bag for one lucky reader!

This week’s prize is all about wellness, and treating our bodies right! There are seven fabulous, self-pampering items in this giveaway- worth $60! Keep it for yourself, or give as a very special handmade gift.

Goodie Bag Giveaway items {Home Sweet Homebodies}

  1. Handmade goodie bag- This works fantastically for storing your cosmetics, nail polishes, etc., or as a wetbag- because the inside is lined with fused plastic bags, making it water resistant. This goodie bag is an interesting mix of old and new- the fabric is current, the zipper is vintage, and the fused plastic- well, you could call that “hipster recycling”. If you wanted to. 😉 ($14 value)
  2. Detox Bath Salts- We all pick up toxins from the environment we’re in, the things we eat, and chemicals that touch our skin. This packet of super luxurious bath salts will help pull those toxins out, while affording you a much- deserved soak in the tub. This blend of high quality bath salts includes epsom salts, sea salt, Redmond real salt, and magnesium flakes, and is scented with relaxing lavender essential oil and revitalizing peppermint. ($8 value)
  3. Trust Fund Beauty nail polish- this is the only non- handmade item of this giveaway, but I included it because it is a nail polish that is truly non- toxic and cruelty free. Win! ($15 value)
  4. Super smooth, organic lip balm. I shared a post yesterday on how to make these lovely lip balms. I will probably be listing them in our shop, though, for those who want a ready-made option. ($4 value)
  5. Hard Lotion Bar- another extremely nourishing, organic beauty item! If you haven’t used hard lotion bars before, they are fantastic. The warmth of your skin melts a tiny bit of the lotion, and you rub it in. It is long lasting, and it’s nice to let kids use too, because they can’t squirt it everywhere- they just get a bit. I use mine on my hands and on my lips sometimes too. These bars have organic coconut oil, beeswax, avocado oil, shea butter, and cocoa butter in them, and are lightly scented with essential oils. ($6 value)
  6. Measuring tape bracelet. Ok, this is just a fun, handmade statement piece. This bracelet is adjustable, and it has an attractive silver buckle to fasten it. Perfect for those who sew and/or design. ($9 value)
  7. Measuring tape key fob- another “just-for-fun” piece for the fashion- minded. Includes a key ring. ($4 value)

Fun stuff, right? :)

All Natural Organic Lip Balm Recipe

All Natural Organic Lip Balm Recipe {Home Sweet Homebodies}

I looooove making my own personal care products because I know exactly what is in them, and I could pretty much eat anything I put in them (not that I’d want to… beeswax, Mmmm!). I have been making my own products for several years now, including homemade deodorant (yah, I know, sounds crazy, but it works and I have peace of mind), facial moisturizer, various creams and lotions, shower gel, bath products like foot scrub and detox bath salts, and lip balm. Just to name a few. :) Some of the recipes are still in the developing stages, others I adapted from recipes I found on other blogs, and some are perfected and ready to be enjoyed!  I love my lip balm recipe! It has gone through so many variations, but I am really happy with the final result! It’s super smooth, but not too soft. (Note- you can reduce the amount of beeswax if you like a softer lip balm.) I usually add some nourishing oils like Rosehip Seed Oil and Carrot Seed Oil, and then whatever essential oils sound good at the time.

*Only the Good Stuff*
All Natural, Organic Lip Balm Recipe
{Home Sweet Homebodies}

2 1/2 tsp. organic beeswax
1 tsp. organic coconut oil- I get mine from Costco
1 1/2 tsp. organic cocoa butter (I have used lanolin, but I like this better)- I get this from Mountain Rose Herbs
1 1/2 tsp. organic shea butter- also from Mountain Rose Herbs
1 tsp. organic vitamin E oil
Optionally, add ~20 drops of your choice of essential oils (some oils require less or more, depending on how strong they are)

In a double boiler, add the first 5 ingredients (I use a “homemade double boiler”- a glass pyrex liquid measuring cup in a saucepan with an inch or so of boiling water in it.) and stir until they are melted. Turn off the heat and add in your essential oils, stirring to combine. Carefully pour the hot oils (careful, it will burn if you get it on your skin at this point) into your lip balm tubes or tins.  It really helps to have a disposable plastic dropper or pipette to do this. The oils will harden very quickly, and the middles will sink as it cools, so you can add a few more drops to even the top out. Then, you can put them in the refrigerator to set them more quickly, or just let them continue to harden for a couple hours. This recipe fills about 8 lip balm tubes. This lip balm is so nourishing, and the oils are naturally antimicrobial, so it will last a long time. You’re gonna love it!

P.S. Our next giveaway is going to be live on Tuesday morning, and one of these beautiful balms may be included, among other fabulous things! >hint, hint< Be sure to stop by!

My Car Preparedness Essentials

Last month, I shared the contents of my personal EDC (every day carry) bag which I take everywhere with me. Today I am going to show you what I keep in my car to fill in some of my preparedness gaps- my car EDC, if you will. (This post contains affliliate links for products I actually own and use, and feel good recommending. Clicking & buying using an affiliate link gives me a small commission but doesn’t change the price for you. Not all links are affiliate links. Thanks!) 

Let’s start with the trunk, shall we?


This is pretty much what the trunk of my car always looks like. As you can see, I have a few things there, but there is still plenty of room for other cargo. Here’s what you see: 1. Emergency Car Kit (I’ll share the contents below), 2. Water bottles- kept together in a graham cracker box. Yes, I know, it’s classy. 😉 That box is the perfect size, and it keeps the bottles from rolling all over the car. It works. 3. Snow scraper/ brush– an essential for me since I live in the mountain west. 4. Rope– so many applications, from survival, to camping, to lugging home your Christmas tree or that piece of furniture from IKEA that you were so sure would fit, but didn’t. Yeah- been there. 5. My car emergency kit family add-on items (I will show this in more detail as well), and 6. a small towel and a couple blankets- also important with our very cold winters, but super helpful even for picnics, kid’s potty training accidents etc. I will definitely add a couple more in there as the weather is getting cooler.

Bet you couldn’t wait to see the water bottles in the graham cracker box, right? Right? 😉


Moving swiftly along… let’s take a closer look at that emergency car kit.

Car emergency kit

I purchased this emergency kit at Costco a few years ago, but you can find the same one on Amazon, here. It comes with a small air compressor, jumper cables, bungee cord, duct tape, cable ties, tire gauge, screw driver, utility knife, LED headlamp, extra batteries, window mount triangle, and a first aid kit. Not bad- it’s got the basics covered. However, I wanted to add some things in that I consider essential!

Emergency kit add ons 1

1. LifeStraw– I would suggest keeping at least one, but possibly more LifeStraws in your car. If you were stranded in a desolate area and you needed water, you could use this filtering straw to drink out of a puddle on the ground, and you’d be fine. Pretty cool, huh? 2. Miscellaneous items including tissue, pen, hair tie, cough drops, hand sanitizer, etc. 3. Shout wipes– I have kids, plus I’ve been known to drop my lunch in my lap, so, ’nuff said. 4. Tide packet- I don’t know that this is truly essential, but I have wanted to wash clothes out in a hotel sink when we were on the road, and this would make that possible. 5. Lighter, 6. tea light, 7. compressed towel (for hygiene), 8. tinder– these items are for light and warmth in a survival or camping situation. It’s pretty easy to store a lighter and start a fire with that, as opposed to matches, for many people. 9. Mylar blanket aka space blanket– again, for warmth in an emergency situation or health crisis. These blankets reflect your body heat back to you, and while not soft or comfortable, they can be used in combination with other blankets and they’re pretty effective. I often stock up on these at the dollar store. 10. poncho–  I also get these occasionally from the dollar store. 11. extra screwdriver– yes, we have used ours, and we were glad to have it. 12. Tire gauge- this was already included in the kit, I accidentally pictured it here. 13. A few commonly needed OTC meds like pain relievers and digestive aids, and 14. a kitchen- sized trash bag- so many uses, not the least of which is to be used during carsickness.

Car emergency kit add ons

In addition to what’s in the car emergency kit, I carry a small plastic bin that’s more of a family clothing emergency kit. 😉 I use this stuff somewhat frequently.  I suggest carrying some kind of small container like this that meets the needs of individual family members. Since I have small kids, this reflects the needs of my family- i.e. potty training, carsickness, etc. If you have older kids, babies, elderly family members, or if there are specific health problems, you should tailor this kit to meet those specific needs. In my kit, you will see 1. Lots of easy, nutrient dense snacks like granola and protein bars, fruit leather, and jerky, 2. Extra straws, forks, napkins, hand wipes, etc., 3. extra shirt (child sized), 4. Extra underpants (again, child sized), 5. zip top bag (so many uses), 6. Extra training pants, 7. Spare baby clothing including a hat, 8. blanket, and onesie, 9. Socks.


Moving toward the front of the car- here’s the back seat. The reason I show this is not because it’s pretty or fancy- these are just basic booster seats for my elementary school aged kids- but I really like the seat protector pads. These pads have saved me tons of work cleaning (have I mentioned that I must have the most carsick prone kids ever? I have seriously cleaned up so much vomit out of my cars- yuck.) and these pads just wipe right off. They also have storage pockets that hang down, and are useful for road trips and such, but really, I just have them because it makes cleaning up their seats so much easier.


In the middle seat, I keep a 1. seat organizer stocked with 2. Flannel burp rags (my baby doesn’t need them any more, but they are awesome for cleaning spills, and are also big enough that clean ones can be used as a mini- blanket for the baby, or rolled for a neck pillow), 3. Diapers and wipes (I would carry wipes even if I didn’t have kids. So useful.) 4. Emergency snacks (I am realizing how much importance my family puts on snacks. Haha.), 5. an umbrella, and 6. a road atlas book, which is important to have in case you ever couldn’t use your GPS or smartphone to navigate.

Car EDC Baby Car Seat

My baby is in a rear- facing car seat, so we love having a mirror that we can see each other in. And since the foot space is available, we stow a diaper bag that is full of baby essentials, and always stays in the car, and a diaper clutch, which for me is much more portable and practical when I’m on- the- go.


We keep the diaper bag stocked  at all times with diapers and wipes, 1. snacks, 2. hand sanitizer, 3. extra blankets and clothing, 4. an ergobaby or moby- type wrap for carrying the baby (I have multiple wraps, this one always stays in the car), and 5. when I was breastfeeding, I kept extra nursing pads and lanolin cream.


This lined diaper clutch was really simple to make and it fits 4-5 diapers and a small case of wipes. I do not carry a diaper bag everywhere with me. It just does not fit my lifestyle, and my baby is old enough that it just isn’t necessary. I can fit everything we need in this clutch and my personal EDC bag.


Underneath the diaper bag, we have access to 1. a full size box of kleenex, 2. a box of trash bags (bought on a road trip, long story, but it was useful enough that we just left them in the car.), 3. an auto fire extinguisher, and a winshield sunshade (not labeled).


Last, but not least, in the front seat. I keep 1. extra medications, 2. chapstick and eyedrops, 3. a power converter for our phone chargers, 4. extra phone charging cables, 5. a pocket sized set of scriptures, 6. flashlights (link is for different flashlights than pictured, but we have a set and we like them), 7. yah, more snacks, 8. another power converter that can be used with a standard plug (we’ve used this with our mattress pump when we go car camping), 9. this knife (use your best judgement on this and don’t leave in a place super- accessible to small children.), 10. a CPR mask with valve, 11. Extra AA batteries, and 12. more hand sanitizer.

Here is my recommendation for preparing, whether it is for your car, your home, or your purse- think about what is most important to you, and your family on a typical day and go from there. In an emergency situation, you will have physical needs of warmth, safety, shelter, food, and health. You may have emotional and spiritual needs arising from stress and grief. Think about the things that give your family comfort in all of those ways, and make sure you address those needs in your preparations.

Be happy, prepared, and safe!

Cable Crochet Headband {Home Sweet Homebodies}

New Crochet Pattern!


I LOVE to crochet.  It is so therapeutic, and so rewarding. I think I just love the fact that I can put my creative energy into some yarn, and turn it into something useful, like a blanket, or scarves, or more recently, headbands. I like that I have something physical to show for my time.  

  I have crocheted since I was about 7… Which is kind of crazy, now that I think about how young I was when my grandma taught me (and how long ago that was.. I’ve been crocheting for over 20 years…whoa).  Every time I sit down to crochet something, I think back to my childhood when I would have “crocheting lessons” from my grandma.  She would work on her AMAZING doilies, and I worked on crocheting scarves and blankets. I didn’t realize then how much I would treasure that crocheting time with her, but I have always remembered that she made the time to teach me something she loved.  It has meant so much to me throughout my life.

Cable crochet headband

I’ve always loved cabled knits, and wanted to learn how to make them. For awhile I have been thinking it would be cool to make a crochet headband pattern with a cabled texture, but I’ve always been intimidated by how fancy the cabled texture looks. But after trying a few cabled crochet patterns and getting comfortable with how they work, I finally sat down and made my own pattern for a cable crochet headband. It is much easier than I expected it to be, and I love how it looks!  This (along with the other headband patterns in my shop), is very quick to make (I can make them in one evening), and makes a great gift! So, with the upcoming holidays in mind, I am now selling the pattern for this headband in the etsy shop here!


This pattern uses the following stitches (you can easily find tutorials online for each stitch):

– Ch – chain
– Slip stitch
– sc – Single crochet
– dc – Double crochet
– bpdc- back-post double crochet
– fpdc- front-post double crochet
– fptr – front-post treble crochetIMG_1139

Also, check out my other crochet patterns in the shop here, including my best-selling “Anna Crochet Headband“:


 Happy crocheting!!!

Sugar & Spice Body Scrub

Sugar & Spice Body Scrub {Home Sweet Homebodies}

We’ve been enjoying perfect fall weather.  And I’ve always loved fall, but this fall is extra magical for me. I have had so much fun decorating and creating this season! I would love to share a few of the things I have been working on. If you follow us on Instagram, you have seen a couple of these things! Today I’m just going to share this Sugar and Spice Body Scrub. It’s a simple sugar scrub, and it makes a great gift, especially if you package it up in a pretty glass jar.

Sugar & Spice Body Scrub- Gift {Home Sweet Homebodies}

With the chillier temperatures, why not treat yourself to a warm, relaxing bath- made even more luxurious with some homemade bath products, like this Sugar & Spice Body Scrub.

DIY Sugar & Spice Body Scrub {Home Sweet Homebodies}

Would you like to make some? Here’s my recipe:

Sugar & Spice Body Scrub
{Home Sweet Homebodies}

3/4 cup Raw Cane Sugar (package might say “sugar in the raw” or “natural cane turbinado sugar”)
1/2 cup White Sugar
~3 Tbsp. coconut oil
1 tsp. Vanilla Extract
1/8 tsp. cinnamon
Dash each of nutmeg, ginger, and ground cloves
Optionally: 4-5 drops of Cinnamon Essential Oil, 1-2 drops Clove Essential Oil (You definitely don’t have to include essential oils, but I like using them. If you want to buy essential oils, but don’t want to join a MLM company, check out these high quality oils that I trust- and no, I don’t get paid at all for recommending them. Just my own personal experience: Mountain Rose Herbs and Nature’s Fusions.)

Mix ingredients together well. This will fill one 8 oz size glass jar. Feel free to play with quantities or use other baking spices. Make it your own. :) Make sure to label your creation, and decorate it any way you like. This makes a great gift. (FYI you want to avoid plastics and aluminum when storing and mixing things that contain essential oils.  Mixing in a glass bowl with stainless steel or silicone utensils is ideal.)

Sugar & Spice Body Scrub Recipe {Home Sweet Homebodies}

I hope you get a chance to pamper yourself this week- this scrub would be a great way to do that! >wink< :)
