Fairy houses are a favorite of Sisters Know Best! Whether you believe in fairies or not, fairy houses are a cute mini-project that add a touch of whimsy to every home or garden. There are many different ways to make a fairy house, but we like to use the bounty of nature to make ours. Living in the woods, it’s easy to collect twigs, moss, stones, bark, and other items to construct a completely natural fairy house. It’s a fun DIY project that younger kids can help with and older children will enjoy doing on their own. Adults love it too!

It’s lots of fun, but so often winds up with burnt food or hot dogs lost to the flames. Ugh! Instead of that huge bummer, give these easy campfire food ideas a try! [Read more…]

Ever wondered what Hygge is all about? We did too. We investigated, and following are our thoughts on hygge and why it should be a part of your life.
All year long, life is hectic and stressful. It’s easy to get caught up in the day to day and focus on “just getting through.” This attitude saps the joy out of living and when the dark, cold months arrive, many people battle seasonal depression or other mood concerns. It’s well known that meditation can help with stress management and elevate your mood. Meditation helps with being mindful and literally rewires your brain. Knowing that makes the concept of hygge (pronounced hue-guh or hoo-gha) that much more incredible. Hygge is basically mindfulness and being present – yet much more, too. [Read more…]
