DIY Valentine's Day Kissing Practice PillowRemember when you were much much younger and you’d never kissed a boy so you’d practice on a pillow? (Did guys do this too or was it only the girls?) Luckily I’m well past that awkward awful stage. However, that does not mean that I am not amused by these hilarious DIY pillows that are designed to help you practice kissing better – or for that very first time. These handmade pillows make a brilliant novelty homemade Valentine’s Day gift for that single friend you just want to keep in the game and in practice just in case Cupid decides to throw some love her – or his – way. Although if you’re gag gifting these to a guy, you may want to throw a little red on the lips to give the illusion of girly goodness. *wink* Learn how to make these via the tutorial by Emily Grace King over at Instructables.com.

I’m still not quite back into my regular routine of things since my vacation. And as I generally spend my weekends crafting and the weekdays blogging after my regular 9 to 5, I haven’t yet had a chance to whip up any new DIY projects or beauty recipes. While that means I’m just one short day away from giving those creative juices some time to run wild, it also means I won’t have any new bath and beauty recipes to share with you until the beginning of next week. But don’t fret. Life happens and as I’ve learned, it is what it is. In the meantime I hope you enjoy this little collection of diy crafts and handmade products that I’m a little ga ga over lately.

I am all about my miniature dachshund. His name is Jasper and he is definitely one of the big loves of my life. He’ll be a year old in August and he is just the sweetest and friendliest of dogs I know. For those of you who own a mini doxie yourselves, I’m sure you understand exactly what I mean. And that could be why there are so many handmade products out there in tribute to these adorable little fellas.
I found some wonderful products all dedicated to doxies in one shop in particular on etsy whimsically named Persnickety Pelican. I couldn’t help but fall in love with these adorable finds. What about you?
