Happy Crafty Fridays ya’ll!
Today is a special day, I’m finally doing my first flea market on Saturday and Sunday. If you are in or around the Bay Area this weekend stop by my booth at the Treasure Island Flea Market. I’m so excited I just can’t hide it. I have no idea how this is going to go but I’m ready to rock! I created a few Mother’s Day themed items as well as my signature lamps. I can’t wait to let you all know how it turns out.
We are keeping it short and sweet today. Rose water has been around for ages, Cleopatra used it daily. Rosewater can be used as a toner, a skin fresher, or as a rejuvenating mist. I keep mine in the refrigerator for a nice invigorating burst of goodness during the day.
You can buy rose water as cheap as $15 and as expensive as $1000, my versions cost $10 and works just as good as the expensive stuff.
DIY Rose Water
