DIY Dried Citrus Garlands

Who knew some wooden beads, tassels and bay leaves could make such beautiful, festive garlands? This is a great project to do with your kids and an even better gift to give! I also imagine that I’ll keep these up in the house for the rest of the winter season, even after the holidays. They’re cheerful, fragrant and wonderfully colorful!

DIY Advent Calendar

The countdown to Christmas has officially begun and I’m sharing a last minute advent calendar DIY inspired by this tutorial I spotted on Pinterest a few days ago. I know it’s a little late but I honestly didn’t get around to making this myself until yesterday afternoon . . . getting things done at the 11th hour seems to be my new norm these days. The good news is that the tutorial from start to finish should only take you about an hour or so. It’s the decorating and filling of the bags that takes the most time, but at least it’s also the most fun.

Holiday Wrapping Inspiration

If there’s one thing that brings me peace and calm during this hectic time, it’s wrapping. Wrapping presents, after everyone has gong to bed, is my precious time. It’s meditative, and is even better with a glass of wine. This year, I’m all about the brown paper wrapped presents, tied up with colorful velvet ribbon and tassels. Lots and lots of tassels. Too many tassels. I hope some of these wrapping examples of years past bring you inspiration and joy. Happy holidays, everyone.

Niki Dionne

There’s something so charming and relatable about Niki Dionne’s extraordinary oil pastel drawings of women doing ordinary things. The multi-disciplinary artist created by 75 pieces of women, each with a name, reading a book, doing…

The Animals Observatory
