DIY Easy Easter Treats | No-Bake Chocolate Nests

Hey Internet!

Easter is certainly here and that not only means chocolate, but baking. However, you would prefer quick and easy treats that can be prepared in an instant because time is hard to manage at this busy time of year. This recipe is completely vegetarian unless you are adding gummy sweets not chocolate to decorate (but who honestly would, eh?). 

Let’s be nostalgic and go back a few years to when you used to make ‘Mini Egg’ chocolate nests with your mum. These treats can get so much morethan just chocolate in an instant.

Time Is Hard | Handle What ‘It’ Is | TARDIS Talk

Time is a vicious thing.

Does it ever feel like one minute goes quicker than another? Does it ever happen to you, that when you wait, everything takes longer – even if your a patient guy! What about when time flies when you’re having fun? Happens with me, all the time. But why is this happening to all of us? Not everything falls into two categories. *ask yourself why.*

DIY Gifts! | Show Someone They Care

Hello Internet!

I’ve a box of tissues right next to me – not because this is going to be really emotional but because I’ve been sick for a few days. I wake up in the morning like a slug, then for the rest of the day I act like a cat (sleeping at every opportunity). It’s been awful! Please wish me to get well soon. 🤢

Today I was planning to write more on my novel but then I came across to my laptop and the document had gone. So, I think I’ll have to start once again. But the original words of the story keep escaping me and my inner author is not switched on. I cannot think; write; speak or wonder, whatsoever and it hurts.

Quote of the week

I love poetry – however I’m not a poet. I love art – but I’m not an artist. I try my hardest to do what I love but it never comes to me. What are my talents?

Today I’m going to share with you some ways to get crafty and make something personalized for someone you care about! Let’s get started:

  1. Colour in their initial. My Granny bought this lovely book for me (thank you!) in ‘The Works’ with fancy letters to colour in. But you could also draw this if you like! I think that spending your time to do something like this is lovely for your receiver and colouring is very relaxing! *BONUS!*
  1. Photo-frame collage! This is quite complex (but easy). All you need is: a photo frame, twine/string/ribbon, photos, mini-pegs or paper clips and extra-accessory (pressed flowers is a good option). I’ll need to show you a full tutorial so I will do very soon – probably this week.
  2. Bake! You could create a baking kit for your chosen person and make it together (this is great for the younger people) or bake them a cake FOR them. It’s up to you! But these all work amazingly!!
  3. It’s the wrapping that counts: if you have personalized gift-wrapping or have taken your skills to the next level it makes for a brilliant gift, no matter whether it’s bought or not! So get that wrapping sorted.

I hope you loved making these DIYs and took these tips in to account. Sorry for the weird mash-up of subjects, but that’s me: weird! If you are to make any of these lovely things then please send me a photo via email! All the feedback from you is appreciated.

Best of wishes,

Art Is Behind Everything? Pt. 1/3

Hello Internet!

Before we begin, I would like to address some statements. 1) I know I’ve promised an Amsterdam post, so that’s on it’s way; I’m fully aware there’s been a delay but I have so much media to upload! It’s a very long job. 2) Where’s that part two of the nicknames post? I’m sorry but I don’t think that’s ever going to come around again so I’m truly sorry if that’s something you wanted to read.

Today we’re going to debate about art. I believe art is behind everything, however many disagree. Meet Sam and Tim, a pair of very close friends that have a different view on this statement. Sam agrees that art is behind everything, and has a strong belief in God – this is very differentiated to Tim’s opinion. Tim thinks that art is not an essential subject within school and has a very strong argument against the fact that ‘Art is behind everything.’

I’ll ask you now, what’s your opinion? I’m backing up Sam.

Sam: Tim, you know how we didn’t learn enough art in school-

Tim quickly cuts in.

Tim: WE LEARNT ENOUGH ART, okay? I’m sorry but you can’t go on about this any longer. It’s making me sick. Art is great, yes. But school taught us the amount of art we needed to learn. Art isn’t essential anyway, it’s not like it is behind EVERYTHING.

Sam: God had a plan. He decided to created an Earth. He use art to figure His ideas. My mind is art! So is that wall over there, and the grass. God created the grass exactly how He wanted it to be. Architects designed the wall to be useful! It creates a barrier. That’s a good thing.

Tim: I suppose… but no-one created grass! With all due respects I do not believe in Him. I think it’s unscientific tosh.

Sam: I am probably viewing this in the most scientific respect. I believe in God. God believes in me. BUT I AM STILL A PHILOSOPHER.

Tim: Philosophy is so out of order.

Sam starts raging in fury. He thought Tim was a great fella’…

Hope you enjoyed this style of post! It’s very much inspired by Stephen Law’s take on ‘The Complete Philosophy Files’.

Who do you agree with?

Have a great day, wherever you are, whatever your doing.

P.S THERE IS A PART TWO TO THIS POST!
