    Easy DIY Soft Candies + Printable Valentine Tags by Saynotsweetanne.com

    I’ve mentioned before that Valentine’s Day at my house get lumped in with our wedding anniversary. For that reason, we don’t typically do anything fancy on the actual February 14th. Instead we avoid crowds and high costs by doing something special closer to the 19th. That doesn’t mean, however, that the official V-Day is allowed […]

    DIY Dollar Store Candles | Easy, fun, and under $5 each! | Saynotsweetanne.com

    Candle making for me is right next to soap making. There is artisan level soap and candle making that involves a lot of equipment, investing in scents, colors, space etc. And then there is quick-and-dirty soap and candle making which is far more accessible to people like me. This is a quick and dirty candle. […]

    Okay, so, I love hot drinks. From Hot Cocoa to Creme Caramel Tea. And, I happen to have a few friends who share in my indulgence. But Chai Tea mixes are often hit or miss. Chai tea recipes differ a lot. Some are too spicy for my liking, others don’t have enough chai “punch”. So, after […]

    DIY Flavored Salt | Great gift, with three styles of customizable printable labels! | saynotsweetanne.com

    Finishing salts are one of those things that I could have gone my whole life without ever knowing about. I mean, salt is salt right? Wrong. Sea salt is different than Kosher salt which is different than Iodized Table salt. Sea salt tends to taste saltier, which allows for more sparing use. Additionally, Sea salt […]

    Beautiful and Easy DIY bodywash. Create your own color and scent! | saynotsweetanne.com | #beauty #craft #gift

    Bath time has become an amazing restorative exercise for me lately. I lounge away in the hot water and feel truly warm for the first time all day. I pamper myself with bubble bath, my 1940’s vintage lady Gillette razor, and usually some music or candles. So, when I ran out of body wash I figured […]

    Thankful [Please Do not Pin Photos of my Family]

    I lieu of posting today or this weekend, I am taking the holiday off. This year I have so many things to be thankful for, and I want to take special time to reflect on them, rather than frantically clicking at a screen (which is my day job and hobby).
