I have a lot of people tell me they aren’t creative or crafty in or out of the kitchen.

I don’t believe that’s true.

I believe that all of us, no matter who we are, have a little bit of art inside us of us.

The definition of an artist is: a person skilled at a particular task or occupation,  a person whose work shows creative ability or skill, a person who displays in his work qualities required in art, such as sensibility and imagination.

That’s all an “artist” is and we all have those skills and abilities in one way or another.

I can’t free hand draw, or paint beautiful water colors, or sew well, or sing well, play a sport, or even play an instrument.

But I can create. And I think creation is art.

I love to create a beautiful garden, a comfortable home, I love to create recipes, little craft projects, and I also enjoy making healthy face and body products.

Trust me, if any of it was difficult drudgery, I wouldn’t do it.

Art is something you LOVE to do that comes naturally to YOU.

Yesterday I focused on  making an organic anti-aging night cream.

It’s simple to make, it’s luxurious, and it’s a special treat for yourself and your loved ones.

  3. It looks amazing! Do you melt the shea butter, because it tends to be gritty? Also the coconut oil when you measure it, do you pack it in? Here in NY it’s still hard.

    • Hi Dee! No, I don’t melt the shea because the brand I use isn’t gritty. If you click on it in the recipe it will take you to the brand link. And I would say yes, I packed the coconut oil in as much as possible. If you set your tub on top of a heat register or in the bathroom while you shower it should warm up enough to soften the coconut oil and make it easier to measure. Thanks for stopping by and commenting! 🙂
