Lavender and Crochet

Check out my favorite new body lotion and the reason I need it so much!

 Lotion: Avalon Organics

 I am absolutely obsessed with this lotion. It is an organic lotion with no harsh chemicals. My acupuncturist introduced me to this when I was having some trouble with my skin. She explained that many of the popular lotions with perfumes and strong chemicals can actually do our skin more harm than good. She told me to check out Avalon Organics.

They sell a wide variety of products including lotion, body wash, shampoo and conditioner. I have only tried the lotions and body wash so far. My two favorite scents are Lavender and Peppermint.

The other great thing about this lotion is that it absorbs into your skin really well. After using the lotion there is none of that slimy “I have oil all over my hands” feeling. It simply leaves my skin soft and smooth.

I highly recommend checking them out. There is even a place on the website where you can find stores that sell their products. That way you can check out the scents first hand.

I also thought I would share my big crochet project with all of you today. (One of the big reasons I keep this lotion on hand all day). This afghan is about the size of a twin comforter. It took about a month to make from start to finish, but I have to say, it was worth all of the dry skin, broken nails and aching fingers!

Now you’ll all get a glimpse of my geeky side! I saw a Tetris afghan on Pinterest made by artist Loretta Grayson; which she had posted on her blog. I thought it was one of the coolest things I had ever seen. I used to love playing Tetris as a kid and thought it would be great crochet project to try myself. My design is quite different from hers but I had to give her credit for the inspiration.

Do you have a craft or hobby that wreaks havoc on your hands? Do you have a go-to lotion to help prevent the damage?
