What’s cooking today?
Well, actually… these are wool dryer balls. The boiling is to make the yarn ball stick together in one solid piece – it’s called “felting.” Later I’ll stuff these into a sock & dry on high heat to finish the process.
If you’re sitting there wondering, “What the heck are wool dryer balls?”, keep reading! These puppies’ll change your life. (Okay maybe not, but they’re still pretty darn awesome.)
Wool dryer balls are an AWESOME replacement for dryer sheets because..
a) They last for years and you don’t have to buy dryer sheets (💵❕) – and they still get your clothes soft
b) You can easily ditch of all the harmful chemicals used for fragrance and softening in dryer sheets (on your clothes ➡️ on your skin ➡️ in your body. This stuff is just bad news 😵)
c) They can actually cut down on drying time!! (💵 & 🕚❕)
Four of these cost around $6-8 to make.
I whipped up a few batches to bring to a local women’s shelter!
sometimes this thing we call the human body is quite the mystery. the more I learn, the more amazed I am. but there are so many surprises along the way. like who knew that dark chocolate actually helps keep healthy bacteria in your gut?? amazing.

meet my baby celery, Groot. they say you can re-grow some vegetables by putting the base of the plant in a shallow dish of water.. so I thought I’d give it a shot! so far, so good!
Does this photo make you thirsty? Staying hydrated is one of the easiest ways to improve your mood & energy level! When our cells become dehydrated, they are sluggish and don’t function quite as well. An easy way to figure out how much water you should be drinking is to take your weight in pounds and divide by 2 – that’s how many ounces of water you should get in a day! It’s easy to remember on a hot summer day, but make sure to drink enough water in the cold, dry winter months as well!
