My Favourite Articles and Links This Week
15 ways to instantly improve your mood this holiday season.
No more guilty pleasures! “When you find things you genuinely enjoy, don’t let anyone else make you feel bad about it. Don’t feel guilty about the pleasure you take in the things you enjoy. Celebrate them.”
Did you lose someone this year? Perhaps this might be helpful- how to hold grief through the holiday season.
I love Susannah Conway’s Unraveling the Year workbooks, and she just launched the one for 2018. It’s a free download, and I highly recommend.
Speaking of free downloads, you all saw the free cowl pattern I designed for Eucalan, right?
My Favourite Pins This Week
This mozzarella chicken in tomato sauce hits all the right spots for me this season- hearty, delicious, and weeknight fast (because I’m never going to be the person who loves spending an hour cooking dinner). Pinterest link is here, and the original recipe post is here.
Fudge is one of those things that seems to really be a big deal around the holidays, and I can never resist it when I see some on a dessert tray! This chocolate peanut butter fudge is super easy and comes together with just 4 ingredients. How can you miss? Pinterest link is here, and the original recipe post can be found here.
Love DIY gifts and projects, but think you aren’t artistic enough to pull them off? Then feast your eyes on this super simple and super adorable bunny mug DIY! Trust me, even if you can barely draw a circle, you can make this cute-as-pie mug. Pinterest link is here, and the full DIY can be found here.
I am crazy in love with this pom pom wreath and pine garland (you could use fresh pine or fake, your choice). Now, the original DIY is using a hula hoop for the circle, but I think you could probably trot on over to your local craft store and get a smaller wooden hoop, if you need something that would fit on a door. Pinterest link is here, and the original DIY is here.
I love the idea of gift baskets, but the commercial ones you buy in stores are 80% filled with packaging/stuff you instantly throw away. It’s easier than you think to put together your own little baskets, and you can customize exactly what goes in them for the right person, or the right theme! Great details on 6 different basket ideas can be found here, and the Pinterest link is here.
Have a lovely weekend, everyone! We have two different holiday parties this weekend, so I’ll definitely be doing some of these hostess gift ideas to bring to the parties. I hope you are all staying healthy and cozy!
