Turn your Etsy envy into wood burning with pyrography

My love for pyrography, aka wood burning, came from Etsy envy.

In an effort to share this most exciting of journeys with you, my dearest DIY Homies, here are the things you will need to start your pyrographical adventure from Etsy envy to unfettered creativity…

Stop everything and look at this Cookie Monster bikini

Just look at it looking at you. It’s totally staring right into your cookie-slaying soul, and saying, “you know you need this in your life. You didn’t even know I existed until today, but now that you do… the whole world just seems to make sense again.”

RAWR: Etsy delivers handmade lion-themed cuteness for that little kid you know

How absolutely ADORBZ is this lion hat and diaper cover set made by Offbeat Families Flickr pool member HiLL.jO?! SO cute I had to cruise Etsy to see what other lion-themed preciousness is available, and naturally that’s a veritable treasure trove of diaper covers, birthday cakes, nursery designs, and so. many. outfits that are waiting for you to “AWWW” all over them.
