I ordered two pounds of lavender and am now making eye pillows with lavender and rice. I have no sewing machine and wouldn't know how to use one anyway. So I hand sew the little rectangles and try to use up the fabric I bought years ago for "projects" that never came to fruition. After working all day at my computer and being interrupted by my kids for breakfast, lunch, dinner, a ride, solving a problem, something something something else. I can't wait to go back to the office. I'm more productive and efficient there.
I make the lavender sachets in the little draw string pouches that you can buy as wedding favor supplies. I use a ton of them in the closets. My best hack for laundry is to take the absolutely single socks that have been hanging around forever, fill the foot part with the lavender and tie a knot in the neck. Then I throw it into the dryer and everything smells great.
That is a GREAT idea, DoV! I now have all this lavender. I can throw it in a single sock in the dryer and call it a day. I poured a bunch in a bowl and just put my face in the bowl for insta-aromatherapy.
Principessa--you lucky girl you! Having guys put IKEA stuff together for you and get their woodworking fix. We should all be so lucky.
