Timeless Cream

I love this cream!  Of all the products I have this one is my favorite!  (Unless it's 3am and one of my little people wakes up with achy legs then my favorite is the Pain Relief Drops and Pain Relief Magnesium Cream.  Check out this blog post for more info on these two products.)  This cream contains rice, cucumber, Witch Hazel, Vitamin E as well as all the nourishing essential oils that are in the Timeless Serum.  It also has Hyaluronic Acid and Vitamin B3 which are known for their wrinkle fighting properties.

Joining yarn ends...

I found this amazing technique on Pinterest  and you can check it out here.
I had a really hard time getting it right consistently so I simplified it and it works now every time!  Here's how I do it:
First, you take your two ends and hold them together.  The pink yarn is what I'm joining to the green yarn...

then, wrap the pink yarn around your thumb ONCE.  (In the video she has you wrap your thumb twice)

then wrap the pink yarn in front of the ends ...

fold the ends over the yarn you just wrapped in front

hold the ends snug against the tail of the green yarn.  Slip your thumb out of the loop.

hold the ends snugly with the green tail then start to pull the pink yarn, (so this is obviously a bad picture because I don't have a good grip on the green end...)

make sure the pink loop stays down around the folded over ends

pull tight!

snip the ends and it's all done!
