Essential Oil Pouches

Last week we received our much anticipated Young Living Essential Oils.  
Can I just say I'm in love so far!

So of course I had to make a holder to protect our investment!

I looked all over the internet to see how 
people stored their bottles and saw lots of ideas!
The idea that stuck with me the most was a pouch 
that has inserts to make my oils easily transportable and keep them safe!

I wanted something that would hold up to taking the oils in and out without wearing out, 
so I decided little padded pockets were my best bet.  
Making them into an insert for my zipper pouches fit my needs exactly!

Apparently I did it right because they have become a hit on my website and Pinterest!
I truly love seeing people excited about something I made! 
It's so humbling and rewarding seeing your work appreciated by others!
 It really is pretty awesome!

Oils are becoming a big part of my life and sewing has always been a major part,
 so I'd say there is a happy union coming together!

The essential oils zipper pouches are just the right blend of cuteness and function!

If you know me you know I'm a homebody, 
but when your bestie invites you to her home 
near Los Angeles  you set up a mini family vacation!

Since her home is so close to LA my hubby wanted to go to the 
California Science Center to see the space shuttle Endeavor.  
A bit of research later and we discovered there would also be a 
Dead Sea Scrolls exhibit at the time of our visit.

Little did we know everything else the center had to offer!  
It was an amazing place and I know we didn't get to everything they had on display.  
Talk about delivering more than we had hoped!

As we made our way to the Endeavor we got to see so many amazing things, 
but nothing compared to walking into the Endeavor hanger and seeing it in person.  
Tears filled my eyes more than once as we wondered under and around the Endeavor.  
The sheer awe of something that amazing took my breath away!
I think we could have spent the entire day just soaking it all in!

The California Science Center was so much more than we thought.  
It had something for all age groups.  
I was really impressed!  I highly recommend it to any family!
