To make the innards, I mixed 2 1/2 C. of sugar with 1 C. of Extra Virgin Olive Oil, and a little container of pink lemonade mix (the Walmart version of Crystal Light). I also added a few drops of lemon juice to pump up the lemon scent. You can use any natural scent including brown sugar, vanilla....whatever.
You stir it all up, and get a nice scrub to wash away the old.
I'm always out of ink in my printer, so I used some stamps for the tag....I always forget this until I'm desperate, but you can actually color stamps with markers, and they stamp just as well as a pad, and you don't have to find a home for 27 different stamp pads. This part of the post is for my benefit, I keep forgetting these things I figured out at some point, so I'm reminding myself below....
I tied the spoon (left over from a thrift store find, and a failed metal stamping attempt) on with some pink ribbon along with my tag. Please add tags to the list of things I'm mildly obsessed with...and I use the word 'mildly' only because in some 7th grade world it's opposite day.
And now....a fresh way to scrub off the old year....assuming it left some dust on you too.
