These are some of my favourites this week...
These free printable ice cream truck gift tags are super cute.
And so are these origami-unicorn printable gift tags.
I want to make some rainbow swirl ice cream!
I love this pineapple embroidery pattern.
I love these DIY letter cork-boards, and the pin collection looks awesome, too.
How cool is this tie-dye cheesecake?!
These art prints from Kirbee Lawler are so beautiful.
This chocolate Nutella roll cake looks delicious! I love the look of the rhubarb strawberry cake, too.
These hand-crafted sugar cookies look amazing. They're all vegan friendly, too!
This week the critically-endangered Sumatran rhino population rose by one, after the birth of this precious rhino calf. It's heart breaking that there are just a hundred of these rhinos left on the planet, and that it's likely too late to save them from extinction.
NOT a favourite, but something that filled me with shock, rage, and disgust... There are vendors in China that sell 'living keychains'. Small animals like turtles, salamanders, fish, and frogs are sealed in small plastic bubbles, often filled with colourful dye and beads, and sold as souvenirs to tourists. The animals are unable to move and will suffocate as soon as their limited oxygen supply runs out- which is a few days at most. They're basically living coffins. Anybody stupid enough to buy one of these key chains in the first place isn't going to free the animal before it suffocates, and the majority die. Can you imagine how distressed these poor animals must be? How would these people feel if they were thrown in a transparent coffin alive and well, trapped inside, and carried around like a toy until they died from suffocation, only to get dumped in the trash without a second thought or an ounce of remorse? I doubt they'd be on board with it. Seriously, people, if you want a pet on a key chain, get a fucking Tamagotchi! Animals aren't toys, and shouldn't have to suffer for five minutes of entertainment.
I love this pretty cactus terrarium water colour.
