    MY hands are always cold! Like right this minute, lol. No matter what I do, my nails are always blue and it freaks the husband out often, heh. I cannot wait to try this. Would entirely keep the warmer nearby while working away on my computer. Thanks for the awesome DIY! <3

    My hands don’t usually get cold (unless I forget my mitts ) but my feet often do.
