The next time someone asks me what my favorite past time is, I’m going to tell them I color on food just to see what kind of reaction I get. If that doesn’t work, I’m going to go all wallet -sized yearbook photo on them and whip out a mini portfolio from my bag and talk about my food craft projects longer than a crazy cat lady with a new kitten (also, me apparently). Sad part is it’s truer than I’d like to admit (sans the wallet prints for now), but what the hey, you only live once, so I’m going to freakin’ paint my desserts if I want to.

Alas, these DIY edible chocolate messages take a little too long for writing an entire love note (or about your entire love affair with painting food), but they get the short and sweet messages across loud and clear. Also, if you have a Dad like mine, you’ll get to use the most perfect infomercial purchase of all time for them too…

I know, I know, I’m kind of on a crazy edible gold kick lately. Sue me! I mean that in the most loving way possible, of course. I just want to paint all the things, including these DIY temporary edible gold lipstick glasses, because why not?

They’re a super easy and quirky way to add a little DIY touch to a Galentine’s, bachelorette, bridal shower, or even just a girl’s night. Plus, it gives me another good reason to take pictures of the new studio backsplash! Don’t worry, you’ll get to see the full reveal this week!…

I’m no Picasso or anything, but I’ve been dreaming up these DIY abstract art macarons for a while (ever since making this cake), and I’m just now getting around to it. Funny enough, we actually ordered a canvas giant print of that watercolor cake because I loved it so much and cake doesn’t last forever (which is a tragedy). I also have one more litttttle edible art project coming up for you too, what can I say? I’m on a watercolor kick!

Plus, how can you not love an edible craft project that you can’t mess up AND you get to eat afterwards? It’s perfect for the kids too, or you can even use them as a homemade Valentine that’s a step up from the yarn card for the fridge.  Add a painter’s palette for the full styling effect, and the next thing you know, you’ll be selling street art cookies in New York!…

I love that you all went crazy over last year’s DIY wooden polaroid gift set, but there was just one little thing missing for them: a stand.  We solved that problem by making these DIY wooden polaroid displays that make for the perfect desk additions or home decor trinkets. Even better, you can make the displays in almost no time flat and DIY along to our second ever video tutorial for them too!

The polaroid portion is the same easy steps as last year, which you can find right here. Once you have your wooden frames ready to go, you’re all set for making the displays…
