An Apple A Day

An Apple A Day

I was asked a few weeks ago if I would like to donate an item for a breakfast our local chamber of commerce does for the teachers in our school and a new cozy was born.
I wanted to make something new and so I came up with the apple cozy.
How perfect is it for the teachers in your life?!

Apple Cozy by Oikos Handmade

These cozies and lids are perfect for both hot and cold drinks. You could fill the inside up with their favorite drink packets and a candy bar making the perfect gift for that special teacher in your life.

Since releasing this cozy you all have been loving it. I am excited that so many teachers will have this cozy sitting on their desk.

Cute Cozy (and a special)

Cute Cozy (and a special)

Well hello friends!!
Life happened and the blog took a back seat for a while. We enjoyed our vacation and end of summer activities before school started.
Some pretty fun things are happening here with Oikos Handmade and I am so excited to get into the groove of things and tell you all about them.
First up a new cozy that was designed for a friend. She is getting married next month and wanted cozies for her bridesmaid gifts.
So I came up with the flower cozy.
Flower CozyI love the simplicity of this cozy and am excited at all the color options. From the cozy color, to the flower color, to the beads...the color options are endless.
What colors would you pick?

From now until tomorrow at midnight all cozies are buy 3 get 1 free, no coupon needed. Leave a message in the notes to seller at checkout for which one you would like for free. If you want to put in a custom order just shoot me a message and I will get you taken care of.
Enjoy and stay tuned for all the fun that is to come.
