I like to say we live in the “Scent Age” because people are willing to spend a lot of money just to smell great or be in a location that smells great. There are a wide variety of smells for each person, and there are places where you can create your own scent for whatever you need in your life. Yesterday we had potpourri in small dishes spread through out our homes, now we have oils, waxes, and aerated sprays for a more concentrated power boost of smells. What about putting those smells in places that candles can’t reach?
Between the pumpkin flavored things, lists being made in anticipation for the holidays and those growing out your facial hair for charity, remember to take a moment to smile and spread some love. It’s can be as grand as taking a relationship to the next level or as simple as sharing a friendly smile with someone in pain.
Actions matter – do them wisely.
The weather is finally cooling down and the days will start getting shorter. This cuts down on a lot of activities that can be done outside but how do you inject fun in your routine through the cooler months?
This Fall and upcoming holiday season I have challenged myself to tackle a new kind of craft. I usually lose my shit for the Christmas holiday because I’m that person. I am a few years away from the ugly sweater that has dough and icing stains on it while I force my family to take awkward pictures to capture the moment(s). As a child, I would dedicate hours to Martha Stewart’s shows learning new tips and tricks (back when her show was better and it was just her for the hour and her crafts). I intend on making wreaths. One day I will showcase how I decorated my son’s nursery. I made flowers and vines for the jungle theme I choose. It looked awesome but the amount of insects that I attracted, I will never do something like that again for a kid’s room. I didn’t realize they would want to invade a room with fake flowers but I lived and learned.
The few wreaths I’ve come across on Pinterest look awesome but they’re so overpriced. Stay tuned for my adventures in crafting! I plan on making something for Fall, Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas. What are you getting into? Taking any risks? Learning anything new? Let me know!
