Cozy. Adjective: giving a feeling of comfort, warmth, and relaxation. It is the ultimate stressless state one can achieve. For me, ‘cozy’ is my softest, baggiest sweater and a hot cup of coffee. I relish in the moments that I can sit down in a quiet, sun-filled nook of my house and sip on my coffee in peace. As a working mom with a toddler, these junctures are few and far between. But every once in a while, the stars align, I happen to be wearing my coziest sweater and I get a quiet moment of caffeinated bliss. Lately, I’ve been on a quest to enhance these occasions of guilty pleasure since it is my belief that it is the little things that often make the biggest impact. Something as simple as a makeover for my comfy sweater and a new latte recipe. So to make this happen, I’ve teamed up with a lovely crafting brand to create a special design for my favorite attire and whip up an exclusive Raspberry Café Latte recipe to go with it. Here’s how I get Coffee Cozy with Craftables…

Craftables is a great company that lets you customize everything from t-shirts to market bags to baby onesies. With their heat transfer vinyl sheets that are compatible with Circut and Silhouette Cameo machines, the design possibilities are endless. I wanted to create a custom design that enhanced my coffee-sipping experience and it was ridiculously easy to accomplish. Using the Craftables heat transfer vinyl, the design was made with ease. A quick ironing on to finish the heat transfer and voila! My tired sweater had new life and a very important message to convey. To commemorate the cozy event, I also created a special (and very easy!) Raspberry Café Latte recipe, which I have included below.

Raspberry Café Latte

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 scoop of ground espresso
  • 1/3 cup of whole milk
  • 1 teaspoon of raspberry jam
  • 2-3 fresh raspberries

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Brew the espresso in a regular-sized coffee cup.
  2. Add the raspberry jam to the espresso and mix well.
  3. Heat the whole milk in another coffee cup in the microwave for 30 seconds. Then, using a frother, froth the milk for approximately 15 seconds or until light and foamy.
  4. Pour the raspberry espresso gently into the frothy milk cup. Top with fresh raspberries and enjoy!

  1. YES. I am loving this because I always want the cute shirts with sayings on them but I can never find a shirt I like… or that fits. But if I can just find my own shirt and do the transfer? Win all day.
