In my house, we always get a nice hot cup of coffee or cocoa before we sit down on the computer... and promptly get absorbed in the computer so the drink is cold before we realize the time has past. Rather than keep doing the re-heat thing, I decided it's time to keep it warm to begin with. This mug cozy helps keep it warm ... even when I get drawn in to all the great stuff about sewing on the Internet.
Is your tax refund ear marked for a new sewing machine or serger? I wish mine were! Christmas and tax refund time are two of the times of year when my email will contain questions about buying a new sewing machine. First let me say I'm jealous! Next let me tell you to do your homework. In the case of waiting for a tax refund to come in, use that time to go "window" shopping. Sewing machines are SO easy to fall in love with, that impulse buying is too easy! By not having the money yet, you are forcing yourself to take time to think about the options that are offered and what you really want or what you will really use. But most important... be an educated consumer and learn what you can from every store you shop at.
No matter how old the kids are , our annual Easter egg hunt is something we will never out grow. What is really fun is that not only do our kids come home for the occasion, neighbor's children now join in and look forward to Easter at the Colgrove house. No one can put a price tag on how much fun it is to watch old and young alike, search for those eggs. The only thing I've seen that distracts from the fun is a grocery bag that keeps getting tangled up so they can't get an egg in the bag... this fabric bag solves that problem!
Little things can decorate the house for the up coming Easter holidays. As Easter approaches, warmer weather is supposed to come with it. Hopefully it does and a door stopper is a great way to make sure the door stays open and fresh air comes in! This door stopper is a great way to keep doors open and add a decorative touch at the same time!
