DIY Jello Lip Gloss


 
I wanted to share a project I shared on the Seven Thirty Three blog last summer. 
I picked up just a few items to make lip gloss. Plus, who doesn't love JELLO
Materials
Jello (any flavor)
Lip Gloss Containers
Coconut Oil
Petroleum Jelly
Measuring Cups and Measuring Spoons
I scooped out the coconut oil and petroleum jelly and used a 1 to 1 ratio into a microwave safe bowl. 
(We used 1/2 cup each, and it makes lots)
Then put it in the microwave for 30 seconds and then just mixed the mixture until almost smooth with a spoon. 
(UPDATE...be sure jello has dissolved as much as possible - if not your lipgloss won't be completely smooth)
Then I used a separate bowl and measured out 4 teaspoons of the oil and jelly mixture and 1 teaspoon of the powdered jello.  This amount fit my containers perfect. 
Let them set up over night and you have lip gloss.  Please note, these will not add color to your lips, they do however have a slight flavor.  You can add more jello to make the flavor more intense.




Why I Love Southwest Airlines

This is not a sponsored post or a paid ad - I just feel I need to give Southwest Airlines a little love.



I was invited to an amazing blogging event (more details on that later) and I needed to book travel. Southwest happened to be one of the airlines I looked at.  One day they were having a sale and I got the best price I had seen in a few weeks...so I booked the trip.  Now I'm a happy blogger.  I'm excited about my trip.  I'm continue to work on my upcoming craft show for tisa's creations and continue to get ready for the trip.
My craft show is over and 5 days before the conference Southwest runs another sale.  So I check my flight to make sure the price isn't even lower....I see horror!  Horror!!!  My event is scheduled in San Diego, I booked my flight to San Jose!  YES - SAN JOSE - that's a 7 hour drive from San Diego. WHAT!?!?!?  I need to remind myself to breathe...again and again and again.  And again!

Long story short -I called Southwest Airlines just to talk about my options and find the cheapest way to get to San Diego in less than 5 days. I called - the wait was just 4 minutes...ok, I'll take it.  And the most wonderful person answered the phone...we reviewed my options and worked it all out.  I was re-routed and the situation was fix.  No, not for free, but for a lot less than I thought I was going to pay.

I honestly have a great experience each time I flight Southwest.  Now I can say, when I need to speak with a customer service rep with Southwest it's also just as great!

Thanks Southwest!  Great job - love your team.
