Saturday Chitchat with Janine – Volume 50
Hello and Happy Weekend!
Can you believe this month is halfway over? It’s safe to say, 2022 has been a pretty good year so far.
How have you celebrated the new year? I’m not a big party person, but a night in with a bowl of popcorn and an episode or two of The Great British Baking Show sounds like a party to me!
But in all seriousness, I have been working twice as hard to make this year the best year for my blog. Whether it’s twirling yarn for a garland or cutting paper for a wreath, I have been crafting 24/7.
To honor my creations, here is a collection of January crafts for adults to inspire you and others to try something different for the new year!
And besides,, who doesn’t love an easy DIY for your home? I sure do, and I hope you do too!
A Personal Note from Janine
My yarn collection is growing, and I don’t even knit.
You see, I use my skeins of yarn for making pom-poms. And lately, everything is coming up pom-poms over here at my home. Well, a lot of my craft projects are taking over our home.
Thank goodness my husband loves all the crafting and baking that I create. You see, he is a creative person too, so he understands the artistic process.
He and I both have art degrees, so it makes sense we ended up together. We can choose out wall colors, backyard tiles, sofas, but ask us to solve a bunch of math equations, and we’re lost.
We leave anything analytical to our son, who is an engineer.
Well, off to create another wreath for next week!

This Week’s Tip – Add Gorgeous Ribbon to Anything
Here’s Where I Buy My Ribbon
When I create a wreath or decorate my Christmas tree, I always rely on a few Etsy shops. But did you know that there are boutique shops over there that specialize in ribbon?
The one that I always buy my velvet ribbon from is Shy Myrtle. I wish I had about 10 yards of every ribbon that they sell. But, I try to have a few in my ribbon supply since I love to add a pretty ribbon to most of my homemade wreaths.
You can also add a pretty ribbon to gifts, mantels, baskets, and much more. For example, this past Christmas, I used a rustic edge blue velvet ribbon for my garland. And I love how it created a vintage-style tree.
I hope you like this fun little ribbon shop!
