Oh, dear January...a time to make sure you are taking care of yourself.  A time for keeping warm in the extreme cold.  And since most of us are spending more time indoors, it's a time to look around your home and gather the things that will make the coming weeks just that much more comfortable.
It's time to wrap up on the sofa with a nice warm quilt, and add one to each bed for that extra layer of warmth.  If you are short a few, Miriam of Minimade ( on Facebook and on Etsy) has several in the shop.

It's time to light a fire (or some candles) and enjoy a hot cup of your favourite beverage by the fire...alone, or with some great company.  There is a huge selection of teas by Terra Teas and tea accessories by Waylin Enterprise.  (Hand made mug by Remembrances, cutting board by Greg Hughes of Full Circle Woodworks).

It's time to take care of your skin and protect it from all the harsh conditions of winter.  Tara of On A Branch Soaps ( on Facebook and on Etsy) offers a selection of great soaps with new varieties like Winter Chai Tea and Cup of Sunshine --- as well as balms and lip butters to soothe your lips and skin.

We may not be able to escape the season, but we CAN embrace it.  Slow down, keep warm, hibernate, and take good care of yourselves my friends.
