Mollie Makes and More!

This week I have a little project on the go, I’ve found yet another cute mini project on Mollie Makes magazine, found a little baking project to try and I’ve painted my nails! 🙂

Below is the latest issue of Mollie Makes magazine and even though sewing and I are never seen in the same room together, I REALLY want to make this fish key ring!

I am making something so awesome but so secret for now! So I trotted down to the local art supplies shop to get some paint when I saw some cool cardboard 3D letters about 3-4 inches high!
So I purchased said letters and have been busy decoupaging them with bright tissue paper!
Most messy but rather absorbing!

In other news the Mr has told me word of a working picnic so I have been thinking and have found a super cool recipe for Mini Oreo Cheescakes! Oh Baby!!!!!
Update to follow on those beauties!

Tomorrow I’m off to Oxford to visit their University for dinner etc so I have painted mine nails with Pink Lemonade by Boots 17! Absolutely lush colour!
Topped off with a secret cheap hero of mine and that’s the 17 double gloss top coat a steal at £2.99 and it performs waaaaaay better than the OPI top coat I have!

Close but no cigar!

As of my last post I had got through the Victoria sponge round of the Cambridge Bake Off!
The last six ( including Moi!) had the task of creating a nom- some edible including creme patissiere and fresh seasonal fruits!
I decided to go for a Frasier Cake!
Alas the amazing and beautiful competition beat my cake into the distant depths of baking competitions!
Below is one of my practice cakes!

Today I decided to try out a most minuscule bit of nail art and used my fimo canes!
You can them pre sliced or as I have done, in little sticks!
Then all you do is cut some wafer thin slices and position them on a freshly applied layer of top coat!
When all is dry, finish with another slick of top coat!
Check out the apples on my thumbs! 🙂
