Reusable Beeswax Wraps

Let me tell you about these reusable beeswax wraps.

Beeswax wraps are pieces of fabric that have been coated in beeswax, making them reusable and semi water proof. These wraps replace the need for plastic bags and reduce the amount of plastic needed overall.

Ive seen ads for them before on the internets and then about a week ago I saw this one on Instagram. That video got the wheels turning. I knew that my local health store had beeswax and that this would be a quick and very satisfying craft.

I made mine slightly different that the ones in the linked video above but the concept is the same.

Ive listed nine sets of sandwich and snack sized wraps in my Etsy shop.

Bee the buzz of the office with these wraps!

Patches 

Save the date! October 15th I will be opening my Etsy store and listing these hand made patches! Now I gotta work on my Etsy page! Eeep! 

Just in time for Halloween! 


I’ll be listing more than what’s pictured here. Lots more! I’ve been working my butt off to bring you unique fun patches! If you follow along on Instagram I’ll be releasing a coupon code to use for opening weekend! You know what that means- more patches! 

Zing! 


I’m excited to share it all with you!

Crazy lady patches 

My motivation to blog lately has been nonexistent. I still want to blog and use this space as a sort of diary of things created but I don’t like the pressure of needing to blog a certain amount of days a week or at certain times just to get readers or followers. Don’t get me wrong I like having people feel inspired by what I’ve made but I don’t want that to be why I blog. It would also help if I made more than .50cents a day. I’ll keep blogging but it will be more on my time. Having an active toddler makes it harder to blog as well. Currently I am writing this post while walking, yes walking with Rohan. This currently is my only free time. At the end of the day I am just tired and want to hang out with my husband. Blah. 

On an exciting note I took an embroidery class through Dabble. Yes I know how to embroider but the class was so much fun. It was so nice having a few hours of baby free time and to hang out with some lovely ladies.  I totally had a great time and I’m even thinking about teaching some classes through dabble! 

Onto my embroidery… More patches! This is one of the things I am thinking about teaching. Embroidered felt patches. I made up two mock ups to see how long it would take me to make them and to see if it would be doable in a two hour class. Totally doable. 

I learned to make banners from Instagram user Surleysimpleblog. She also has other fun tutorials like wreath making and calligraphy. 

The cat I like to call hurricane disapproved on the crazy dog lady patch. She’s all about the crazy cat lady. 🐱🐱So here we are. New patches. I’m thinking I should start listing some of these patches on Etsy. I want them to sell but I don’t want to waste my time or money listing them if they don’t sell. 


Lots of decisions to make.
