Our oldest daughter, Bean, loves to draw and this morning she took on the task of making “A Bible” I really enjoyed watching her recall Bible stories and portraying them mostly accurately! Enjoy the video!
I wanted to give my aunt a little something extra special this year, but was lacking the extra money to go on a shopping spree so I decided to go the ‘homespun’ route. I know she’s had a stressfull year so I started brainstorming on things I could make that would help ease some of her stress and relax. I put a few ideas together and came up with the lavender rice sock. I have a similar small pillow and absolutely love it! Lavender is her favorite scent so I hope I have a winner here for her.
Here’s what I used:
Rice (probably close to two cups)
1/3 cup fresh lavender
1 knee high stocking
1 pretty loooooong sock
Mix the lavender with rice and pour into the knee high stocking and tie at the top.
Then, place the rice/lavender filled knee high into the pretty sock and tie off at the top. I chose to put the rice and lavender into the knee high first to help prevent any rice and lavender from wedging through the stitching on the sock!
