Lavender Sachets ~

I found out quick that I am definitely somewhat allergic to
lavender ~
Not good when I am making lavender sachets !
{they are headed over to my Etsy shop}
I have wanted to make these for so long
so I finally started them last week ~ Loving how they turned out, but they are not loving me~
I work on them for a little while and then I put them
out in the laundry room, close the door
and take a break till my sinuses settle down. As I make them the
lavender
scent hits me right in the forehead...
yep those wonderful sinuses...
not good, but I persevere!

My camera is also giving me fits again...
where is that camera fairy when a girl needs one?? lol

These are the loveliest sachets I've ever seen! Too bad about the allergies. I find that I get a headache when the scent of lavender is too strong. Smells wonderful in small doses!

Your lavendar sachets are lovely Sandi. Love how you used the graphic design on them. Sorry to hear that you are having an allergic reaction to the lavendar though. Must be disappointing as I'm guessing you may have wanted to keep one or two just for yourself.

You're so talented, Sandi! I had to laugh though- sorry! It must be from living with boys so long. ☺ It reminds me of when I had the great idea to harvest nettles to sell and found out I was allergic to them! ♥

Hi Sandi, thank you so much for stopping by and leaving a sweet comment. Your blog is really cute, you make some really pretty things. I'd be so mad if I were allergic to lavender, I love the scent sooooo much. Your sachets are beautiful. That Dairy Queeen cake is a Peanut Butter Syclone cake. I can't tell you how good it was, I'd love to have another piece right now, but it's all gone. LOL
Have a great week!
Bless you, Shirl

These are absolutely gorgeous Sandi!! So sorry you are allergic though. I dried tons of lavender from my garden throughout the summer, and have been making little sachets as well (but they aren't nearly as nice as yours).
Happy day!!
