Galentine's Day: 3D Chocolate Hearts

Galentine's Day 3D Chocolate Hearts
Valentine's Day 3D Chocolate Hearts
Ah, Valentine's Day. That glorious time of year where you're either showered with love and gifts or badly warbling along to Single Ladies in your pants. 
Naaah. As strong, independent women (yes, that is another Beyonce song - but, damn, that lady knows what I'm talking 'bout) we don't need to fall into the media's stereotypical portrayal of single girls* on V-Day. I say we cast aside our crazy cat lady personas and Leslie Knope this place up, Galentine's Day style. 

To celebrate the best day in February - Pancake Day a close second, of course - I've put together an easy chocolate DIY; hand these sweet hearts out to your closest gal pals or make them together at your G-Day celebrations. Warning: sprinkles are applied liberally. 

*Married, engaged & partnerfied women are also welcome, obvs. We're an inclusive group around these parts.

What with Etsy being the best thing to ever happen to my home (and the worst thing to ever happen to my bank account) I thought I'd better write up another Best Of Etsy post quick sharp, and after trawling through the bottomless pit that is my favourites I noticed a celestial theme emerging. What can I say, I'm a big fan of that big ol' orb in the sky.

FriDIY: Hand Stamped Kraft Notebooks

How to make rubber stamps
Personalised Kraft Notebooks
Anyone who knows me, knows I am an avid crafter. I'll try my hand at most things (that's code for 'I can't see anything through') which can either be really satisfying or a MASSIVE disaster. Either way, I thought I'd start sharing these experiments - just in case anyone's interested - kicking off with those nifty personalised kraft notebooks up there.

I'm quite pleased with how these turned out as I'm fairly new to linocutting - I don't think that failed attempt in Year 7 Art really counts. They're pretty rustic looking (aka messy) but that's totally the look I was going for. Ahem. Anyway, once you get the hang of it you can go crazy and start stamping all day err day.
