Hello all of my fellow freezing cold winter-weather friends! As most people know, the east coast seems to keep getting slammed with snow and ice! I get it’s winter, and I can totally handle that, but all of these cancelled classes and work days have me feeling a bit stir crazy. I know you guys feels me on this. So, while I’m stuck inside today on this icy day with a blanket and tea, I decided to surf the web for some fun indoor projects that can be done for a few bucks and with materials you may already have laying around your house. Check out my 10 favorites!
