Make a Difference By Shopping Small

Handmade artisan Christmas soaps make the perfect stocking stuffers for the holidays. When I used to sell handcrafted artisan soaps on my farmers market in the way way back, everyone would scoop up bars and bars of soaps for their stocking stuffers. It almost made standing for hours in the bitter cold worth it. And while I did enjoy my time as a seller – and the people most especially! – I don’t think I will ever go back to the chaos and challenges that come with selling handmade products throughout the holiday season. (Or summer even. I will never forgot those 100°F temps and having to keep cool by soaking my feet in a giant bucket of ice water.)

Having been a soap seller I now find it more important than ever to support other fellow artisans, whether they make handmade soaps or something else. Shopping small really does make a meaningful difference in the lives of those who craft their own products by hand. By supporting independent artists, you are not only directing supporting them and their families, but your community as well. When you shop from a small business 67% of the money you spend stays local. And that can have a big impact for everyone you care about.

A Celebration of Winter Snow

I love snow. And really, snow is probably the only thing I actually like about winter. Fashion choices aside, of course. Granted, I do live on the line between what’s considered the North and the South. So it’s not often we get snow, much less get buried underneath of it. Which means, the threat of snow, brings with it the joy and excitement of a possible snow day. One that hasn’t diminished at all even after completing school and sending a child out the nest and into the world. 

I remember one year we somehow magically got three feet of snow. It was my first year of college (so well over twenty years ago if you’re counting.) The city was not equipped to handle it. And unlike many of your snowfalls, there was no warming period afterwards. The city literally shut down for ten days. Everything was closed. On day five you could walk to the post office and pick up your mail. I took the two mile walk to help curb the boredom. The only person I saw was a man riding down the street on a snowmobile. It was the most bizarre thing I’ve probably seen in this town. And almost apocalyptic. (Except there were no zombies obviously. I’m sure you would have heard about that one.)

How to make a cute DIY snowman mason jar gift filled with white chocolate covered pretzels or other winter holiday food treats to gift to friends, family, teachers and neighbors this holiday season. These easy DIY Christmas gifts also include free printable Merry Christmas gift tags for your handmade Christmas gifts for the finishing touch.

The entire family got creative with snow as a medium that year. I dug an igloo (that was mighty warm inside) out the snow my dad had shoveled off of the driveway. While my dad and brother built a snow woman holding a baby and a lowrider truck that you could actually sit in.

It’s been a few years since we’ve had a decent snow – meaning one to two feet. However, they’re predicting that Southwestern Virginia is in for a very wet and snowy winter this year. And while being cold is not my thing, I figure if it’s going to be cold, then it might as well snow.

DIY Holiday Gifts: Vanilla Chai Tea Mix

I first discovered loose leaf tea during my first marriage. Once I’d tried tea this way, it was over. There was no looking back. I soon had an entire shelf in my pantry that was nothing but flavored loose leaf teas. Once I tried my first chai tea, well. That was the ultimate luxury. And truth be told, I wasn’t even a coffee drinker at this point. That came years later.

While my vanilla chai tea mix is a powdered mix, not a loose leaf tea, it’s still as yummy as the real deal. The advantage of the powdered mix however is that it travels well, it’s super quick, there’s less waste and it’s easy to gift. Simply package your chai tea mix in a mason jar to give as holiday food gifts or for easy storage in your pantry.

While I prefer to brew fresh assam tea for my chai latte recipe, an easy alternative is to mix an instant tea into vanilla chai latte spice mix. (I give directions for both ways.)
