KCL Friday Finds

Happy weekend, guys!! I've got one beautiful small biz to share with you today, and then I'm doing things a bit differently for today's Friday Finds. I'm getting a bit overwhelmed with complimentary goodies this week, and I wanted to take this time to share my favorites with you. I'll be doing an unboxing video featuring the sample items, to post next week! But first, I did want to share one gorgeous shop with you guys. Check it all out below!

Pictured above are some handwoven home goods by Melody Fulone. Her shop is full of unique and beautifully woven wall hangings, pillows, many other home accessories; and even a bit of fiber art jewelry. I really love the neutral colors and the modern designs.

Shop the 2018 Winter Collection. And keep an eye out for a DIY kit for a crochet wall hanging in a few weeks. Melody will also be releasing her spring collection in late March!


This next brand will go into both an unboxing as well as a B…

How to Make Sugared Cranberries


I've been dying to make these ever since I saw them on Pinterest. They're so beautiful and can be used for so many things from garnishing desserts and cocktails or as a festive snack on your holiday buffet. Try them on this gorgeous and yummy Cranberry-Spice Layer Cake! They keep for about a week, so you can make them ahead of time and use them in several recipes. You can increase or decrease the quantity. Just be sure to keep the proportions the same. I have to say, I was skeptical that these would be sweet enough to snack on without them being cooked, but they were so yummy, it was very hard to not eat them all before I took pics. It really helps to soak them overnight. Some sugared cranberry recipes call for soaking them just an hour or two, but as the evening went on and I sneaked a few out of the bowl, I could tell they would need to soak overnight to get sweet enough. It's also equally important to let them air dry for an hour or two before you coat them with sugar. It really helps the sugar stick.


INGREDIENTS
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 cups water
  • 2 cups fresh cranberries
  • 3/4 cup sugar for coating 

INSTRUCTIONS
  • Combine the water and sugar in a small pot to make a simple syrup. Stir and heat to simmering (do not boil).
  • Rinse the cranberries and place in a heat-proof bowl. When the simple syrup comes to a simmer, pour it over the cranberries and refrigerate overnight. (If you're in a pinch, a few hours is okay too!)
  • Take them out of the fridge and lay in an even layer to let dry at room temp for about an hour.
  • Fill a wide-rimmed bowl with sugar. You could use sanding sugar, but all I had on hand was regular granulated sugar, and it turned out perfect for my taste. Place a large spoonful of cranberries into the bowl and use the spoon to roll them around until they're thoroughly coated. Enjoy!

    I don't have them often, but I like cranberries in a muffin.
