I'm afraid to say there haven't been any crafty antics of late but I have found lots of things to make once the lovely, crazy, busy (TLC's difficult second album?) summer calms down.
Like this for instance:
"ooohh pretty" I hear you say. Damn straight. And it has one line of instruction:
Flick glow-in-the-dark paint inside a mason jar. Allow to dry.
Next up may I present to you the most beautiful butterfly cake I have ever seen!
TA-DA! You should check out the other creations on SugarRobot's etsy site. Truly amaze-balls.
And this is just a random picture from DesignSponge. It might just be the most perfect place on earth:

And when we got back to camp this was our cosy den.
|Fairy lights? Check. Lots of blankets in a Navaho Indian style ? |
Check. Radio? Check. Balloons? CHECK CHECK CHECK! I heart Big Trev.
And I found some fun settings on my camera. Tilt-shift features heavily in the photo album...
|Mini paddling Laura at Bedruthen Steps|
|Thai-style Sea Bream with samphire, courgette and baked spud. |
Eating. Like. Kings.
It has also been Slim's big 3 0 birthday and we had a fab weekend camping with friend in the Sussex countryside. Just look at that bunting. I found it in a shop in Brighton- I tell thee- it was like walking into my mind. Best steer clear come pay day..
|We don't really take a phone camping- it was being returned to some friends but I thought it looked rather fetching...|
Emily of Brighton Bakery made this awesome DIY themed cake. Made with carrots, courgette and ground almonds it was so moist and tasty. And wheat/ fat free!
We were also treated to these rainbow cupcakes from Sal! CAKETASTIC.
|I love a girl who coordinates their nail varnish with their baked goods- nice work Vix.|
The decorating committee (Ben & Sal) did a sterling job with these tealights in jars hung from trees around the campfire. It looked magical.
I don't know about the birthday boy but I had a great time!
I have some pictures of the garden I would like to share with you soon and also some sneak previews of the bed Slim has been making. So till then I shall love you and leave you with this cute tutorial from the Guardian website. Ta-ra xx
