What’s Going On

Posted on January 6, 2012 by Allie

Something about the cold, dark winter days puts me in the mood to make things.  I’ve been knitting a scarf for myself out of handspun yarn made from wool, linen, and recycled antique lace that I ordered from SnowberryLime last year.  It’s amazing how a little time to knit and a good cup of tea can make being chased in by the cold feel like a luxury instead of a punishment (at least for a little while).

I’ve noticed in my search for links this week, lots of people seem to be feeling creative too.

Dianne is making honey butter.

Crafting a Green World has clever ideas for old t-shirts.

Books Lists Life made the most adorable castle out of an old card table.

Design Sponge has plans for a wall-hanging organizer made from recycled cardboard.

Crunchy Chicken makes mozzarella.

Are you feeling crafty?  How do you drive the winter blues away?

Tip of the Day

If It Doesn’t Smell, Don’t Wash It

According to Real Simple, if every American made an effort to launder less — cutting out just one load of laundry a week per household — we’d save enough water to fill seven million swimming pools each year.

So if it looks clean, and it smells clean, call it clean and wear it again. Consider hanging worn clothes out on your clothesline to freshen them up between wearings.
