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?)
Now that the holidays are over, the magic of winter is gone for me. I never know what to do with myself come January as I just wait for the sun to come back and for flowers and birds. You could call me a winter grinch. So, I’m skipping right ahead to spring this week, maybe we can fake it until the winter is over.
These colorful butterflies are a great way to add some spring cheer to a dreary winter home. They can brighten up your winter outfits as a hair accessory or brooch, or can help you work away some of the time you’re stuck inside.

During Winter, there’s nothing like warming yourself up with a big, cozy mug of rich hot chocolate. But what I just discovered, is that hot chocolate isn’t just for rosy cheeks when you’re cold. With some added flour, it’s also for rosy cheeks in need of soothing and plumping!

This mask also makes for the cutest homemade gifts – just skip the milk, mold into cubes, and individually wrap! Then when ready to use, mix each cube with 3 tablespoons of milk.

Hygee (pronounced “hoo-gah”) is a Danish concept that has to do with making your home a cozy and pleasant place to be through the cold of winter. Since we spend most of our winters inside our homes, it only makes sense that we put some effort into bringing joy to our surroundings as we hibernate. This means surrounding yourself with things that make you feel cozy and warm like hot tea, pillows, candles, and family. Here are some DIY ways to bring hygee into your home.

This Christmas (much like every Christmas in years past) seemed to just creep up on me. As I’m writing this there’s only one more week until the big day and I’ve still got friends to see, cookies to make, and presents to wrap… So, naturally I’m crafting…
