I think i've got the right word there. Its wood burning. I know a super talented artist who's whippin up stuff with her muggle skills and tools to bring joy to the witch and wizard set. Christmas is coming and i know she takes custom orders. You can find her shop here: By The Cats Paw
I bet you never wanted a set of wooden spoons more in your life. I know I never have. Set these babies to work with a quick enchantment and I know supporting your favorite house while you cook will make your food taste like it came straight from the kitchens at hogwarts!
If you have a more jewelry minded giftee on your list then how about a jewelry box!? This is wicked cool and even if I opened it and it was full of crayons Id still be overly stoked to get this. How about you!? its super detailed and beautiful. I don't know if she can stain these boxes or not but if you're not into pine it couldn't hurt to ask.
Anyhow I'm super absurdly impressed with her work and I just had to share. I'm not huge into gifts gifts gifts stuff stuff stuff during the season but i do think that if you are going to give a gift a hand crafted gift (by you or another artist) really is the way to go. *raises the banner on my big stupid soap box* BUY HANDMADE! :0) or ya know.... just go check out her page and be super impressed with her awesome craftiness. Either way have a beautiful night!
