Deconstructed Mash Up - It's that time of the year

Ignore the button below use the one to the left:)


Ahhh, the flu season is upon us. Jake has been home from school with overall malaise and a fever. So many people I have talked to have a sick person in their family, so I decided to be prepared with a "perk up" card. I combined two challenges this week  - The Deconstructed Sketch and The Friday Mash Up. The Friday Mashup pic reminded me of this paper stack that I have been anxious to use AND I am really hooked on the Deconstructed Sketch.  I thought the card would have a bit of country flair with the sweet flowers and barn wood papers. The Friday Mash Up calls for 3 or more patterned papers and I think I got 5 in here with the flowers. This is such a cute set of papers to work with.

Well, Jake is on the mend this morning perhaps due to the "Jake Paste" that I make for him. I combine 1 T of coconut oil with 5 drops of Eucalyptus oil and 5 drops of Lavender oil. I rub this on his throat, chest, back and feet.  It also has a nice spa like fragrance so I use it preventatively on myself when someone else in the house is sick. How do you combat the flu season in your household?

  2. So far have been good in my house. I am going to make this paste when I need it to see if it helps alleviate how bad one feels.
