Natural Hair Products

Hair Without Tangles

Ever since my daughter has had hair long enough to comb, she has had tangles. I am talking about big tangles that would take me 20-30 min. or more to comb out, and with her crying in pain the whole time!

In the past, I've tried ever kind of product out there on the market to get rid of tangles.....NOTHING worked! Then, I tried Shaklee Revitalizing Shampoo and Replenishing Conditioner. To my amazement it WORKED!

My daughter has long fine hair, and she acts like a tomboy most days, but since she washes and conditions her hair with Shaklee, I haven't had to spend time combing out tangles and she doesn't dread getting her hair combed anymore! 

It worked so well for her, that my husband and I use it too. I have thick hair, and it leaves my hair so soft and silky! I like the clean smell of it and best of all, It is all natural.

A Bible Bag

Our daughter is required to take notes for Sunday morning church..... (now, before you think this is too much for a little kid, let me tell you that her notes can be pictures, a saying or a Bible verse -just something to show that she's paying attention to the preacher.) In the past, she has carried a purse, but I decided to make her a Bible bag. The bag is big enough to hold her bible, a note book, kleenex, pencil and chapstick.
I bought a pre-made bag at Hobby Lobby, then used craft scraps to decorate it. And since my daughter has low self-esteam, I choose the saying "You are beautiful - just the way you are"! I think it is a hit, as she is thrilled and it didn't cost me more than $2.00! -maybe I'll make these to think anyone would buy them?

Something every little Boy should have!

I have a all-man type of boy! When QW was one, I wanted to buy him a mat that he could drive his matchbox cars on. However, the ones you buy are either too small, or too costly and I didn't think they looked very fun, so I made him a car mat! It was fun and easy to make, and to this day (He will be 4yrs. next mo.) It is his favorite toy! He plays on the car mat everyday. His sister, dad and even mom sometimes plays on it too!  I am a firm believer that little boys need to play with toys that help them use their imagination in a good way.

 I also made one for my little nephew this year for Christmas! I made his different, with more roads and a couple of fields. I also personalized his, so it has their bank, grocery store, his daddy's work, both of his Gmpa's places and favorite restaurants on it!

My kids playing on it, while I was still making it.

The finished product

I keep all his matchbox cars and truck in a small tub and the mat can be folded to put in the tub too. We have taken it with us to other peoples houses, so other little boys can play on it too. It is a pretty good size!

I would love to be able to sell these someday, but It cost's me close to $35.00 just for the supplies, and that doesn't include the time! It is very time consuming, but I also enjoy doing this kind of thing. I just don't know if people would spend that much money to buy one.
