Imagine; sitting by the woodstove, wrapped in a warm afghan blanket, sipping cocoa or tea made on the woodstove, snow falling outside...is that cozy or what?
But it's not all relaxing and enjoying - sometimes, you just get the urge to do something. Here are some projects that might fit the bill, even with cold and snow outside and raging storms.
Fill up the kerosene lantern in case the power goes out, and settle in for a few winter craft sessions.
Stocked up on supplies?
Great, you'll need a few things to get going on these.
First, I recommend that you always have a few candles on hand - I like the bigger pillar candles, but if all you have is some emergency candles from the hardware store, that's fine too. Make them into Grubby Candles to complete the rustic look.
A draft coming under the door can rob the house of a lot of heat; make a doormouse to stop that, and keep out the drafts.
Heavy curtains for the door can make all the difference on a cold night too.
Most of these projects can be made in all seasons, but there's something fun about using natural and found objects and materials in the winter.
Tramping around in the woods is a great way to keep warm,and if you can bring back some wildcrafted supplies, so much the better.
