Honey and Lemon Lip Balm

Yes I finally managed to make my own lip balm!
I love it, and it is so easy to do, well if you have the equipment and ingredients it is lol.

One of them didn't turn out as well as I hoped, but it is still usable

So here are some photos of the product :)

I love

Seeing the sun shine all day long, it is so lovely to finally have some light through all the dark and gloomy days we have had this year and the last.
I am defiantly looking forward to doing some gardening this year, and maybe they will grow right this time (note to self: don't plant the early herbs at the late time of the year).
Even though it is still cold and windy outside, it certainly looks amazing to look at. :)

A little bit of this and a little bit of that

A month after I got over that little cold I had, I am starting to feel worse again.
Once again sore throat which has made my tongue swell up, wisdom teeth have started to hurt which has made my gum swell up, I also have other problems which I wont share on here. I thought that was it, but nope woke up this morning to a very dry mouth and didn't realise it until I open my mouth up and ripped the side of now that part of me is hurting.
The start of this year isn't being very nice to me at all, lol!

Apart from all that I have been trying to keep busy by trying to make other products. I tried to make some shampoo but that failed, for some reason it made my hair more greasy so its back to the drawing board on that one.
I did happen to make something else which I believe turned out to be a success, and that was - roll on deodorant!
I am very pleased at how it turned out, though I think I put in too much tea tree oil but never mind, I'll learn for the next time.

There are other things that I want to make but again, no space, no ingredients, no equipment. I am hoping to get some hot plates as I don't feel it is right to mix the food and craft equipment, and maybe I will manage to make some lip balm, but I don't know what will end up happening by the time I have managed to get some hot plates.

Me and mum are going to try and make some pizzas soon, as there is some food in the fridge that needs to be eaten so this is gonna be a great way of getting rid of it.
I love making things with my mum, even though at times she does tend to take over but I guess that's kind of natural lol, we just have some really nice times together when making things. I don't really get to spend much time with her as she is either helping my little sister with her course work, or help my oldest sister (who has just found out she is having twins! :D), or she is sorting my dad or brother out. So when we do spend time together it is really nice.

I finally managed to do a small video about HMS (Hypermobility syndrome), which I will put the video up at the end of this blog. This is something that me and my family suffer with and I remember doing a video like this on my old channel, but I felt I should make a new one as I feel I may not have added info that I should have.

This is pretty much what I have been up to, along with playing on world of warcraft :P
Hopefully I will update you more on the projects that I have been making :)
