Hard to explain and even harder to pronounce, the Danish word "hygge" (pronounced "hoo-gah") has exploded in popularity around the world. It translates roughly to "cosiness," but it means so much more than that.
In essence, hygge means creating a warm atmosphere and enjoying the good things in life with good people. The warm glow of candlelight is hygge. Cosying up with a loved one for a movie – that’s hygge, too. And there's nothing more hygge than sitting around with friends and family, discussing the big and small things in life.
What words or foods or concepts or traditions in your family are traced to the culture of some of your ancestors? What impact have they had on you personally?
Winter red and forest green mixed with neutral browns and white, give my Hygge digital scrapbook collection a feeling of comfort and warmth. Dried leaves are sprinkled in with paper flowers, checked ribbons, and lace. Designed to scrap fall and winter photos but versatile enough for pictures of your summer garden or vintage family photos too.
Here is a page starter to help you get to scrapping your family heritage:
