The Holidays will soon be over & a new year begun. For most of the country, that means cold, wet, snowy weather is ahead of us. It’s easy to hibernate under a throw when the weather is nasty, binge watching Netflix & eating comfort food all day. For Winter 2016, make a positive change! You can huddle under your throw watching your favorite show, season by season but instead of eating, create some of these wonderful crafts projects from Good Housekeeping. Each is a repurposed item project & you KNOW how much I LOVE repurposing! Get ready now before the weather gets worse by stocking up carefully on the items you’ll need to stay busy when the wind howls & the moisture falls! Enjoy!
