[loveit] New Handmade Shop Announcement - iheartttomakeit in Etsy

Are you wondering what happened with me since my last post?

I almost disappeared from social media on those days.

And this is what I have been up to

ihearttomakeit Handmade Shop NOW OPEN

Yes, this is my longest project I have ever had. As you know, I am a full-time mommy as well as part-time crafter. I love crafting so much that I want to become a full-time crafter as well. And this is how I started my dream. 

Right now, my shop is offering Seasonal themed Lip Balm only (who doesn't want a lip balm in this weather). Yet in the near future, I would add some other stuffs such as sewing and felt items. You may think my shop contains too many objects. I want my shop is one-stop shopping place to shop the handmade gift for yourself and someone special. 

So if you are thinking of a gift for your beloved one in this coming Valentine, for unnamed occasion, or just for an ordinary day, you might want to take a look at my shop and those lovely lip balms. I bet you will like its unique design and love how it soothes your lips.

I promise you will receive the very romantic gift on this Valentine if you're shopping in my shop.

Take a look at my new shop and Happy Shopping!

Love to see you there!

P.s: Countdown- 13 days until VALENTINE

[makeit] DIY - Facial Scrub for dry skin

Well well are you cold?
I guess yes (who doesn't hah) and of course your skin is cold too!
And it needs a special treatment when it gets cold, dry, and light-peel. When it comes to the face, the facial treatment even more special. That is the reason for facial scrub. We should not make it becoming our lifestyle, but we still need to use when needed.

Nowadays, there are tons of products in the market about beauty treatment. Yet most them contains too much chemical which we are not sure how it affect to our beauty and health on the future. That is the reason organic and homemade become trendy. I know homemade things can not be tested but at least we know what we put in there. Of course, I recommend you try a small amount of scrub to your hand first to make sure you are not getting any bad reaction.

About this DIY tutorial, I use very simple ingredients which are coconut oil, brown sugar, and honey. Those ingredients you can easily find in your kitchen yet very useful. I have use this scrub since summer, still use it, and will continue to use it twice a week to get a bright and smooth skin. Which can beat the smooth skin in this winter? I guess nothing.

Let's try it and be beautiful in this super cold weather.

Happy beautiful!
