  10. Store the leftover in the fridge in a sealed container.


Coconut butter becomes thick once cooled. After mixing the maple syrup and the peppermint extract, if it becomes too thick to pour, add a tablespoon of coconut oil and heat in the microwave for 15 seconds or till it melts and is of a pouring consistency.

My aha moment!

I found my style and was able to bring our small space together for our family of 8! My aha moment was when you talked about undertones! That was the moment when I could bring everything together.

Falling in love with our home again

My ah-ha moment was when I realized I was going about things all the wrong way. I loved the house but it didn't feel like home. BUT now because of your course...I am falling in love with our home all over again.

Love this idea!

Orbs are such a great decor item to add to a space. Staining the hoops really gives them a vintage feel. Thanks for the inspiration.
