DIY Jolly Rancher Lollipops Tutorial from The Color Issue here. I’ve posted something similar before and it was actually my #3rd most popular post on Pinterest but the photos weren’t very good. *Someone just emailed me that this didn’t work for her, but I’ve done it successfully melting jolly ranchers in tin pie pans for stained glass windows for gingerbread houses.
My most popular posts that tie for #1 on Pinterest are the Oreo Puddin’ Poke Cake (which I’ve made because it is SO EASY) and then the DIY Knockoff Bina Brianca 12 Way Wrap.

DIY Two Ideas for Valentines Day from inspiration & realisation here. I’m a huge proponent of not buying expensive gifts for Valentines Day - but rather giving silly or inexpensive thoughtful ones.

She also has a “Ransom Note” style card she made. *Tip: if you want to do an online version of a “ransom note” there is a letter generator for that: strix.org.uk/ransom
