All set to enjoy a picnic by the partial frozen stream under the pine trees and bare aspens. Who would’ve thought we’d be having 70 degree days in winter. Can this really be February? Might as well enjoy the gorgeous weather by packing up a nice lunch and water bottle in my handcrafted deer tote bag and head for the outdoors.
These bags are also really handy for corralling layers of clothes in case winter decides to show up – beanie, gloves, a light sweater. I like to be prepared for whatever conditions we find when we get there!
I created this tote bag with my Doe and Fawn in Golden Aspens photo custom printed on a sturdy fabric. It is now available in my shop. I’ll be releasing more tote bags soon. I handcraft them in very small batches, and my mailing list hears about them first. Sign up today!
Infinity scarves are great fashion accessories for their no-fuss way of wearing – no need to figure out ways to tie it! Just throw the scarf, like this handcrafted Death Valley Sand Dunes infinity scarf, over your head and go. Wear one to accent outfits from dressy to casual and that style easily from work to going out for an evening with your friends.
Try out these quick and easy ways to wear an infinity scarf (click images below for how to get that look):
Put the scarf over your head and around your neck, twist it once and wrap the remaining loop around your neck again, adjust the two loops to be the same length.
Similar to the first one, but it has an extra twist in it. I find this keeps it in place all day, no need to check on the length of the loops. Put the infinity scarf over your head, twist twice and then put the other loop over your head again.
Put the scarf over your head, twist it and wrap it around your neck a second time. Keep one loop close around your neck and the other longer.
Just put it over your head and wear it as one long loop. Wearing a scarf this way adds more interest to more of the outfit and it can even make you look a little bit taller.
Whichever style you choose, you’ll be done in an instant and heading for the door to enjoy your day!
For some other variations, you can twist the whole scarf first, tie a knot in it, or wear one scarf doubled around your neck and a coordinating one long.
