This month is like a dream for anyone who loves seasonal DIYing as much as I do! We’ve got the Super Bowl, Groundhog Day, the Winter Olympics, AND Valentine’s Day coming up. This means that the homemakey internet has roughly a billion ideas for unique and fun takes on party snacks, sweetheart gifts, jewelry and home décor! Check out my faves of the week below.
But first, I want to let you know about a couple changes to Hands Occupied. First, in case you mostly read me offsite (I follow my favorite blogs via RSS, I totally get it), we’ve got an updated site design! The new look prioritizes pictures and is a bit sleeker. I hope you like it!
The other tweak to Hands Occupied includes how you’re able to follow the site via email. Until now, you’ve been able to sign up only for an email that gets sent the day a new post goes live, featuring the new content. Starting today, I’ve added a weekly option to email subscriptions. You can read about all the new email subscription options, and sign up for or change your email subscription preferences here.
Thanks for reading! Now back to your regularly scheduled Weekly Reader…

I finished Hawkeye Vol. 2, Little Hits. There was a story about Hurricane Sandy, and even a story told from a dog’s perspective. Amazing! / Why I didn’t watch Frances Ha sooner, I’ll never know. / I just discovered how much I love my Rdio “Heidi” station, so I’ve zoned out listening to my college walking-to-class essentials all week.
in case you missed it…
- Chicago is in yet another polar vortex, which means my dogs are stir crazy.
- I’m wishing it were summer, so my heart-shaped sunglasses got a summery embellishment.
