Mug rug and napkins

This year for Christmas I made a couple of gifts. 
A mug rug for my Secret Santa. I used Christmas fabrics and a tumbler template. 
And a set of six napkins for a friend. I was lucky enough to find a fabric with colors that go in her home.

Homemade lotion and lip balm

A friend pointed me to a lotion recipe on She had given me some in the past as a gift, and I loved it. But I had run out so it was time to make some myself.
I used equal parts beeswax, shea butter and coconut oil (maybe a little less oil).
I mixed it together and heated until it was melted and then added a few drops of the oils I wanted.

I got two lavender lotions, one peppermint lotion and two peppermint lip balms. This works great for me on dry hands especially during the winter.
