My new hobby = burning wooden spoons.
I recently came across this tutorial about etching wooden spoons with a wood burning tool and have spent the last couple evenings binge watching Netflix and burning away!
Here is a picture of my inspiration from Design Mom.
.. and here are a couple of my spoons to date.
M has started to point out to me that we already have a plethora of spoons for our apartment and so it's likely that I'll try to pawn these off at a friends housewarming party. So this has been a nice distraction and added a proactive element to my gift giving.
