Mom wanted a bag to put her soap in to wash but made out of wool. I dug through my stash and found a nice wool sock yarn. It is one of those that makes a pattern if you crochet in the round but I couldn't get the images to line up so I just made it spotted instead. This little baggie would work with any sock weight yarn but cotton or wool would probably be best. 

Time for the second item in "the box" I received from Influenster: The Dr. Scholl's for Her

Hey, you may have noticed I have been a bit slack lately working on my 101 ways to upcycle blue jeans....I think i stalled out mid summer on number 13. Photo recap to get us in the mood.....

I am so excited!!! Today my very first Influenster box came in and had a bunch of goodies in it. Naturally the first thing I grabbed was the thing with chocolate in it! The BelVita Soft Baked energy bar. It looked so yummy how could I resist? Well it was yummy, and from the label it seems pretty healthy too. 

Meet Natalie, our new friend from Marigold's Loft! Mom, Crafter, entrepreneur, all around lovely lady. 

What she says about herself: 

"I used to be a yoga teacher, and also used to run meditation groups. I am a vibrational therapist and work with alternative healing methods.

I am a South African mom of two teens, living with my girls and hubby in Switzerland.

I used to homeschool our children, but since moving back to Switzerland have enrolled them in a local Steiner School. Not schooling the girls has given me a lot of extra time and so I have slowly become more and more involved in crafts of all kinds.

I adore knitting and crochet, and have spent many a blog hour posting about my WIPs and FOs :)

I am an avid reader and love curling up under the duvet with a nice cup of tea and a good book (which is very possible to do most days in Europe)."
