How to Make a Mini Winter Wonderland for Christmas

How to Make a Mini Wonderland Zen Garden

If you like miniature fairy gardens then you'll enjoy watching this video which shows how to make a mini Winter Wonderland for Christmas as much as I have. And if you have a creative bone in your body you'll be busy planning it out in no time.

We are approaching Christmas now, and this project is just wonderful not only as a decoration but also if you enjoy meditating since you can sit and draw with the rake on the "snow" for hours.

Long String of White Christmas Lights with 50 Card Pegs

This 17" Long String of White Christmas Lights with 50 Card Pegs looks like a great idea for my sitting room because when Christmas comes I have little space to keep the cards on. And since I appreciate people making an effort to send a physical card in our digital age, I think it's good to display them while we still can.

Four Fast and Cheap Ways to Decorate a Room for Halloween

Four Fast and Cheap Ways to Decorate a Room for Halloween

I've written this post to describe four fast and cheap ways to decorate a room for Halloween. It's not just little kids who celebrate Halloween. Teenagers and even adults get involved in the fun too. To be honest, I am not a big fan, but my 21-year old son loves it, and for the first time we've decided to get into the holiday spirit together by decorating our garden and his bedroom. He's inviting his friends over, so we are now gathering ideas on how to do it cheaply and without too much money being spent.

Doing things by hand, making own furniture is seen as pretty cool these days. Some of my friends enjoy the hobby, and to some, it's a full-time business.

I have a lot of respect for my female friends who aren't afraid to make their hands dirty. One of them has recently made a standing desk!

How to Make a Mini Fairy Garden for Home and Outdoors

How to Make a Mini Fairy Garden for Indoors & Outdoors

This post is about how to make a mini fairy garden for home and outdoors.

As children, my sister and I used to create our own pretty little things called "secrets". We would collect all sorts of flowers, glass, foil, pretty pebbles and buttons. We would put them into a little hole in the ground, arrange and cover it all with a large piece of glass and soil. These were our own creations we used to show off to each other and when angry - even destroy when we would find out where the "enemy" had hidden their little "secret".

A child in us never dies, and I guess watching the video about making a fairy garden brought back sweet childhood memories!

In this post, I am going to show how to build a big custom-size office desk fast and on a budget.

Have I mentioned it yet that I love a lot of space on my desk? The reason is that I have many things I need to use - like my two laptops (I use two instead of just one when the connection is slow and I need to complete my tasks urgently), papers with notes (I still take notes on paper and print important stuff out just to make sure that I have a backup), books, my essential oils diffuser to help me stay relaxed and focused and all sorts of other big and small stuff I need.
