Day in the Life of Candy
I’m always excited about making things with my hands. From cookies to friendship bracelets to nail art, I’ve always been drawn to crafty things.
Last year, I joined a watercolor crafternoon with Life After Breakfast‘s Alessa Lanot. It was tons of fun so I was looking forward to joining another one. Luckily, last weekend, Alessa together with Hey Kessy‘s Mansy Abesamis had a rubbercut crafternoon at Fully Booked. Was so thrilled when Alessa signed me up (I kept forgetting to do it myself, haha!).
We each got a kit that included carving tools, rubber blocks, and paper.
We drew our designs on tracing paper so we could transfer it easily onto our rubber blocks.
Of course I had to make a cupcake. I didn’t realize how difficult it would be to carve out those swirls for the frosting! Here was my first cut—I could barely breathe while carving!
I managed to finish it just in time.
And lookie! I also made one of my “brand” to put on my baked goodies. What do you think? I love that it looks a little rough and imperfect.
Here are two of my seatmates getting tips from Alessa.
And here’s my other seatmate who won with her awesome 3-layer friendship bracelet stamp. She’s the bracelet master behind Berry Books’ The Friendship Bracelet Book (do you have a copy?).
I had so much fun that I tried making another stamp while waiting for the coding window the other day. One of my favorite furry fashionistas (okay, my only favorite furry fashionista) in V-Day mode. So excited to make more!
What about you? What have you tried making lately? (: If you’re interested in joining crafternoons too, sign up here!

I won't deny it: I spend way too much time online. Mostly I'm just stalking people on Facebook and Instagram, other times I'm doing something more useful like reading articles...
