DIY Etched Spoons

A few warnings:

As a warning, it does get crazy hot and can 1) burn skin, 2) burn a whole through clothing and 3) make burn marks on anything it comes into contact with. Only two of these items are inspired by personal experience and I’m embarrassed enough not to tell you which two. : ) So please be careful!

That said, don’t be intimidated. It was actually really easy to work with. Just be careful, and when you aren’t actively using it, rest it on a surface that won’t burn. And of course, make sure to unplug it when you are finished.

DIY Saturday - Making Your own Rustic Beach Hanging

Who doesn't love collecting shells? Your feet sinking into the soft sand, wind blowing in your hair, the blue water so calming with the sound of lapping waves. To this day I love collecting shells and living on the west coast on Vancouver Island in Victoria BC makes it even easier.  Whenever I head to the beach it's always a stress release and a place where cares melt away.
