what to do? well, here I’ve kindly compiled a list of fun winter activities to do with your family and friends :) enjoy!
- Drive around the neighborhood or the city and look at the Christmas lights while blasting the Christmas playlist (one of my favorites) For extra brownie points, do it while dressed in your Christmas onesies or pajamas ;)
2. Go ice skating! It doesn’t matter if you spend 95% of the time skating around on your behind…the fun time you’ll have will be worth it ;)
3. Gather some of your friends and spend the day baking treats ^^ you’ll most likely end up having a flour fight but it’s all about the memories right? Plus, you can sit around a toasty warm fire and enjoy your treats afterwards!
4. This one is super cozy & fun: build a fort out of pillows, blankets, chairs – whatever you can find! It’s lots of fun deciding among yourselves how you want the fort to look – you might even have a pillow fight along the way :3 For a tumblr touch – hang fairy lights around the inside of the fort and admire your work ^.^
5. Build and decorate gingerbread houses together! *cough* I have had a terrible experience with gingerbread houses where the icing got everywhere and nothing stuck together. The end result barely even looked like a gingerbread house, but DON’T LET THAT DISCOURAGE YOU! Just…don’t eat too much candy ;)
6. Finally, make delicious s’mores together around a flickering fire. You’ll have a fabulous time eating the gooey confections and talking and laughing.
well, that’s it for now! maybe next time I’ll be back with gift ideas? stick around and you’ll find out ;)
I told you I’d be back! Today I’m here with a lovely DIY fall decor.
DIY – Cinnamon Stick Candles (sheknows.com)
For this DIY, you’ll need the following supplies:
- 1 or 2 Vanilla candles
- Cinnamon sticks (or regular twigs if you like)
- Thick elastic bands
- Ribbon (optional)
- First, slide the elastic band onto the candle so that it is right in the middle.
- Put the cinnamon sticks under the elastic band all the way around the candle.
- Take the twine and wrap it around the cinnamon sticks to cover the elastic band :D Tie the twine when you’re finished and tuck the ends underneath the other twine strands.
- If you like, add a pretty ribbon and tie it around the candle ^-^
Now light your candles and don’t burn your fingers like I did u_u
It’s me :)) *gives you a wink because you are supposed to know this song reference*
HIII! I’ve missed you so so so much…I haven’t posted for an entire week! *gasp* Also, I’ve been rewriting this post and this is like my 3rd try…stay tuned becaaaause….
I wanted to give you a quick DIY for Valentine’s Day! Yas, it’s coming up. And yes, I will be alone this year for V-Day…duh. Unless you’ll be my valentine :3
Here we go!
For this DIY, you’ll need:
- cute origami paper…preferably Valentine Day color-themed
- a stamp (optional)
- First of all, ya gotta know how to fold origami hearts. Use this link to choose a type of heart to fold! The instructions are super detailed and even have videos! You should start with the easy origami heart if this is your first time. Make two hearts, set them aside.
- Second, fold your card stock paper in half to make a card. You can trim the edges to make them rounder, as shown in the picture above.
- Glue your paper hearts onto the front of the card.
- Then, if you have a valentine’s day stamp, stamp it across the bottom of the card. If you don’t have a stamp, writing is fine too!
- Write your lovely message inside the card~
- Give it to your valentine!
I think these valentines are so super cute and would definitely make anyone go “aww!” Whoever receives these valentines from you sure is lucky!
Love you so so so much,
That Girl Over There
