Doctor Who Question Mark Lapel Pin Flair DIY!

 Doctor Who Question Mark Flair DIY!
Let's chat about Doctor Who.  I have felt a steady decline with the show and wasn't thrilled about the last season for several reasons...I was happy to see the good looking Master again though.  Now they've announced that the new regeneration of the doctor will be a woman, and I am unimpressed.  I don't think the show will have the same appeal to the audience (at least to me) anymore.  I don't even know if I will watch the new season.  What do you think about the new regeneration?
With that said, I do love my Doctor Who crafts and I love the old Doctors.  I'll keep doing Doctor Who and Tardis themed crafts--so I declare this week to be Doctor Who week!  Come back each day for more Whovian magic!
 Both the 5th Doctor, Peter Davison and the 6th Doctor, Collin Baker wore shirts with the red question marks on both lapels of their white shirts.  This is an obvious nod to the whole "who" thing and I loved it when I was a little girl.

Then it was fun to see Petronella Osgood wearing the shirt too a couple seasons ago.
So, I felt a simple DIY was in order--No embroidery machine needed!

You will need:
White paint/paintbrush
E6000 glue
Red Sharpie Marker
Pin Backs

Shrink plastic

That's right!  Shrink plastic!  Shrinky Dinks were huge when I was little, but it's still so fun.  It's just plastic that shrinks down when it is baked.
You just take that red marker and draw 2 question marks about 2.5 inches tall.
Place them on a baking sheet and place them in a preheated 350* oven.
Watch them while they bake.  They will curl up like a bowl and then flatten out.  They are now much smaller and very thick.
You can see how much my 2.5 inch question marks shrunk down to about 1 inch.
I turned over the question mark and painted a coat of white paint on the backside.  This way the pinback doesn't show through.
Then use some E6000 Glue and glue a lapel pin to it.  Let that dry at least 4 hours or overnight to be safe.
Now they are ready to rock!  Great for a costume or just for fun!
Just pin to the lapels of your favorite white button up shirt.  Totally Who-riffic!
Or just add one to a jean jacket for a subtle geek chick look!

Craft Books Review

I love craft and art books!  I think these are the best gifts for the holidays.  I love gifting things that will improve talents.  Here's some fun ones I've had the privilege of reviewing.

Hand-lettered Life

Enchanted Forest

These books are so much fun.  They are easy to scratch off the surface to reveal bright and vivid colors.  Easy craft for different ages.  Scratch off things are so much fun.

Kawaii Doodle Class

This book is absolutely adorable!  It is perfect for early tweens learning to draw or even teenagers!  My daughter loves this book and draws the cutest little things now.  Super simple directions and awesome step by steps.


Catdoodles is such a darling book.  Anyone that likes cats will love each page of silly cats and inspiration for drawing them.

Playful Painting Pets

This painting book is fun and playful for sure.  Honestly, it is not my style of painting, but I love it!  My son is 9 and has issues with his art, he doesn't feel like he can translate the images in his head to paper.  This book shows that a simple paint blob can be the perfect beginning to a little puppy!  It is helping him use more imagination and letting drawings and painting be imperfect.  It is a wonderful resource.
