Wow, it has been a rough winter here in Portland, but I think the worst is behind us! However, I’m way too impatient to wait for May Flowers, so here are some flowers you can make yourself this February.
Crochet yourself some colorful flower coasters to protect your surfaces while you’re stuck in the house from all of those winter hot drinks. Choose the brightest colors you can find to help brighten your winter mood, too!
I’ve been re-watching Gilmore Girls on Netflix lately, which has given me a constant craving for a great cup of coffee. Since I’m super picky about my coffee, I decided to get myself a pour over coffee maker so I could satisfy my coffee needs without making a whole pot. Plus, it just tastes better.
Here in Portland, the last few weeks have had much more winter than we’re used to. It’s settled down to our typical rainy days, but we were struggling for a very long time! Because of the super chilly weather, I’ve been making great use of my knitted projects. Make some of your own to stay cozy all winter long!
Simple Cable Scarf
Cables make a thicker knitted fabric, which helps create an even cozier scarf. I love the striped pattern and fringe on this scarf, and that it’s so easy to customize!
Lighting a candle is the ultimate way to make your home feel more warm and cozy. You can have wonderful scents wafting through the air and a nice, warm, flickering light next to you as you sit with a mug of a warm drink under a blanket. Does it really get any better?
Grab a few super cheap pillar candles and make them look so much more chic with this easy tissue transfer technique. These make great homemade gifts and look so nice in a hurricane jar or just set out on your mantle.
We’re right in the middle of winter with only spring to look forward to. Lots of kids start to get a little cabin fever when it’s too cold for them to go out and play. Lots of kids also love penguins, so it only makes sense to entertain them by making some penguin friends to get them through the winter!
Not only is this penguin adorable, but it also reuses plastic bottles which can help keep the real penguins’ ocean homes safe. Make a whole Waddle of penguins! (Can you believe that’s actually what you call a group of them?)
