Here is a super simple DIY perfect for this time of year to make your own heating pad and scent it with essential oils. You can totally make these with fat quarters or fabric scraps and even you do not need a sewing machine. These heating pads would make an excellent homemade gift for warming up the hands, tea or coffee with a magical smell!

This year, 2016, is the Year of the Monkey on the Chinese Zodiac. The Monkey is commonly regarded as the emblem of trickery. If you want to make sure the new year offers more hope than last year, then you need to outsmart the Monkey.

Travelling from Paris to London can be as short as 2.5 hours with Eurostar high-speed train. That means you can enjoy the best croissant in Paris in the morning and indulge in a spot of afternoon tea in London with style.


Of course don’t miss the famous British icons like Big Ben, Tower Bridge, big wheel London eye, London Queen’s Guards, double-decker buses and even the red phone booth.

Buy Knit Fabric Online

Jay-Cyn Designs Organic Knit Fabric by birch

Jay-Cyn Designs Organic Knit Fabric by birch

I love knits! And I am trying to buy organic & more sustainable where possible, which is one of the reasons I love the organic cotton knit especially for babies and kids.


Frankly it is really difficult to find good quality knits online if you aren’t buying it in person, I can’t tell you how many times I purchased knits online and the fabric screwed up badly. I am nervous about what I might be getting that I’d rather choose some good-quality brands like Monaluna and Birch Fabrics (I got them from Modes4u Fabric Shop).
