Craft It - Felt Key and Purse Tassels

You know how sometimes you get really into one type of crafting or material and can't help but continue to use it in EVERY SINGLE CRAFT you do? No? That's just me? Well, felt has become my current craft obsession. You may recall my felt heart sweater or felt confetti pillow or even my felt arrow napkin ring? Today I am sharing yet another felt craft with you. Don't hate me. But after buying a plethora of felt, these simple tassels are a quick and simple project to help you use up the little bits that are left over after your other craft projects and they look great hanging from your keys or favorite purse.

Bake It - Berry and Nutella Love Tartlets

I love making sweet treats for my loved ones on Valentine's day. And while I have been known to go over the top in my desert making, sometimes a simple little tart is all you need to show your love. The great thing about these berry and Nutella love tartlets is that they are very simple and even the most novice of bakers can make them. I promise!


Just look how amazing they are. There is something about fresh berries that makes everything seem so much prettier. Don't you think?

These little tarts are layered with Nutella, mixed berry cream cheese, and fresh berries. What is easier and more tasty than that? See below for the full recipe.
