Monday Goals for the Week!

Last week was a no blog week for me due to a few minor health issues, but we're back to feeling better around our house. I did have a great birthday last week. :)

This week is going to be crazy w/ the holidays, travel, and my Etsy shop sales. Here are my goals for the week:

--get oil change and tires rotated on car
--grocery shopping
--get most of the holiday shopping done (Friday)
--finish and order holiday cards from Shutterfly
--general cleaning, laundry, recycling, etc.

--get ready for the upcoming Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, and Cyber Monday sales in my Etsy and Artfire shops!! More details coming soon.

--dentist to get tooth fixed (again)
--organize holiday gift-giving lists for Friday and map out shopping plan

Thursday Tutorials--DIY Dishwasher Soap

I found this tutorial at DIY Natural earlier this week, and I made it on Monday. So far, every load of dishes that I've cleaned in the dishwasher this week has been clean and spotless. I'm so impressed! Check it out for yourself here:

Inspiration Tuesday--DIY Living

I've read so many blog posts lately on ways to make your own cleaning products, do it yourself (DIY) crafts/ gifts, etc., and I truly am inspired to do more at home this year. I even made my own dishwasher soap today, and it worked fabulously! I'll share that tutorial on Thursday of this week, but it came from this blog:

They include easy to follow DIY tutorials on everything from making your own deodorant, laundry soap, dishwasher soap, and even your own hairspray! I personally am inspired to try the homemade natural mouthwash soon.
