In a good way I guess. I just can't get enough of making marshmallows.
So far since I made my first successful batch I've made Four batches.
Vanilla, Turkish Delight Liqueur, Coffee & Kahlua, and Earl Grey. And I still want to make more.
They are wonderful.
Next on the cards is a sugar free recipe (its uses Honey instead), Lemon, Chocolate, and Jaffa just to name a few.
My only regret is not trying to make them sooner.

This week a friend of ours (Clarisa) gave birth to a little girl (Johanna).
Being the crafter that I am I decided to make the new mum and baby some gifts.
For Johanna made a cute stuffed toy elephant. I used some flanalet for the body so it woul be nice and soft.
For Clarissa I made a nappy clutch. It has a pocket for wipes and nappies and rolls out to use as a changing matt. I picked up some laminated cotton for the inside (foe easy cleaning) and cute elephant fabric for the outside.
I must admit I got both these present ideas fron pintrest. And I feel they both turned out rather well.

Two week ends ago I went to a rover ball with my crew.
We all got dressed up in our fancy clothes (I made myself a dress) and headed out for a nice dinner and socialising.
So for the special occasion I decided to make my boyfriend a special bow tie. In fact I made him a dinosaur bow tie.
It was actually the fabric that inspired me to make a bow tie as it was just so cute. I also made myself a matching hair bow. we were super cute.
