Glog Your Way to Winter Wonderland

Warm_0

The weather may be getting colder, inspiring us to bundle up in hats or scarves and shut ourselves inside by the fire, but that doesn’t mean there’s any less to share this season. For me, this magical border between Autumn and Winter is the most creative time of year, when the rush of a new school year is just settling and the frantic preparations for Christmas have yet to begin. This is a time for stepping back and noticing the changing seasons, for digging out recipes for favorite winter comfort foods, for spending evenings cozied up with my “to be read” pile, or spending the weekend indulging in hobbies. I consider myself fortunate to have this brief window of “me-time”, and I’m always excited to share the fruits of my wintery labour. To make the process even more delightful, Glogster’s range of Personal templates gives me an ideal way to show off my pre-festive baking, my craft ideas, or just the changing view from my window, and quickly share it with the people who mean the most to me.

This recipe template is one of a few that are specifically set out to help you share your favorite winter treats. This one is my particular favorite, as it combines a quirky background with an easy structure, allowing me to fill page after page with recipes I’ve tried and enjoyed, including photos of my own attempts and even a video of my work in progress. Why not take some time to make a full winter recipe book out of matching glogs that you’ve linked together, and send it to friends and family so they can treat themselves on chilly winter evenings.

This cheerful patchwork template evokes the cozy cottage-in-the-woods feeling that I associate winter with, while encouraging you to try some new crafts and share the results! Why not try some new ideas in readiness for the Christmas season? A handy tutorial on card-making, decorating, or DIY gifts would be a great present in itself, and one you could share directly to peoples’ phones and inboxes!

This rustic Best Moments template is a blank slate for whatever you want to express – maybe add some videos of the beautiful autumn leaves, or the first snow in the mountains. Perhaps you could share some photos of young ones in your family, all wrapped up warm for a winter walk. Or maybe you just want to share some thoughts, feelings and original artwork as winter grows deeper and festivities ever closer. Glogs are as useful as a personal record as they are for sharing, so pick a template, record something you care about, and keep it safe for reminiscing over by a log fire later!

To use any of these templates, as well as many more great new designs, simply select ‘Create New Glog’ from your dashboard and open the ‘Personal’ section of the template library. Make sure to keep Glogster close on your iOS or Android device, because you never know what surprises winter might throw at you!
