Crafty Men on Etsy

Without the help from the forums on Etsy it is very hard to find shops run by men who make handcrafted items. I requested male Etsy sellers to show me their makes, and although I had a slow response (I don't use Etsy forums often and find that posts can be buried in seconds)  I did have a few guys who did see my post and I was not disappointed with the results..

Clicking the link below  each picture will take you straight to the seller so you can see what other goodies they make. Although photography is not deemed handmade it is still a skillful talent in my opinion and so I decided to include one just because I can :)

A very clever idea and beautifully made

Love the idea off up cycling license plates

Love the rustic look

Who doesn't love a Dream Catcher

Beautifully captured for ever

I had a hard time choosing which picture to show you but this caught my eye, so dramatic.

Jessie's Homemade Truffles

My mama Jessie used to make these truffles  every Christmas and they are totally delicious but if you are calorie counting then I would leave right now. No cooking involved  either and this will give you about 30 truffles. They are also good with chopped nuts and or sultanas. I had to wash my hands in cold water several times whilst making these as they are a bit sticky, great excuse for licking you fingers though.


20 digestive biscuits crushed (I put mine in a blender)
3 desert spoons of cocoa
10 tbl spoons desiccated coconut ( and a little extra for rolling onto the finished truffles)
Pkt marshmallows (I cut one marshmallow into 4 pieces)
small tin of condensed milk
115g butter

Melt the butter in a large bowl and then add the condensed milk and stir to mix well, then add the cocoa powder, coconut and the crushed biscuits and mix well, this will form a sticky dough. Take a desert spoonful and flatten on your hand, place a marshmallow in the center and then form into a ball, once all done  roll each one in the coconut to coat entire truffle. Pop them onto a plate and put into the fridge for roughly an hour till they are chilled. They wont last long that much I can tell you.

Topping out in Style

This lovely shop caught my eye the other day and I just had to share it.  For me one of the most memorable keepsakes from a wedding is the cake topper and Alegra from MAVECROCHET  designs creates beautiful little hand crocheted items to make your wedding cake truly special, and a lovely keepsake. You will find love birds, cats, rabbits, hedgehogs and more in a variety of colours.  Aren't they just adorable? 

Pink Love birds

Absolutely amazing service and product!! Our lovebirds just came out so cute and exactly what we wanted. Couldn't have asked for anything better. Not to mention compared to many other places I looked the price is very reasonable as well!! Thank you!!

Amazing service and great products! I can't begin to describe how great my experence was with Mavecrochet. Alegra  worked very hard to meet my wishes and custom made my two wedding cake topper birds. The result was beyond any expectations and I highly recommend them. The delivery time was no more than 1-2 weeks. Thank you so much!
