Hi everyone! Have you had a lovely Christmas? We have just got back from staying at my parent's house and now enjoying some quiet time at home. I love these in between Christmas and New Year days, doing a little bit of work here and there but nothing too taxing. A nice few days to slow down, reflect on the year gone, and see a new one in.
I find the beginning of winter such a lovely cosy time of year and one that draws me in to spending evenings making things with my hands. There is something comforting, safe and satisfying about it. As the darker nights set in, it is a ritual I look forward to each year.
January and February are harder months and I quite often feel less motivated- but I am determined to continue creating my own colour and inspiration as the dark cold nights press on. To challenge myself I have introduced a hashtag on Instagram, #NestandMake, and I'd be delighted if you would like to join in. It can be anything that's created by hand and with love; from baking, to floral arrangements, sketches, or a rustic flat lay. I would love to see the different interpretations of how we nest and make, and discover more about your winter rituals. Instagram is such a wonderful community; so many things catch my eye and fill me with awe and inspiration, I'm looking forward to see how we all capture that magic of cosiness and creativity.
What are you making this winter? What winter rituals bring you comfort and joy?
