April=Blossom

Hello and welcome, I’ve been busy behind the scenes here at Moozle making lots of custom order teepees, Spring workshop ideas and a charity project that is close to my heart (see this post) to name but a few things that have filled up my time, so I thought I’d make a little blog post to show-n’-tell just some of the busy-ness…and boy has it been pink! It’s been a good year for blossom so far.

The kids and I made the beautiful pressed flower eggs, pictured above, it was very simple to do as we had previously pressed some Spring blooms (about 10 days before), we just thinly brushed some PVA glue onto the eggs and then you carefully lay the flower on and lightly brush more of the clear drying glue over the top (tip: brush lightly in one direction only), if you don’t fancy blowing the eggs first, just hard boil them, they won’t keep for as long but they are pretty for a ‘quick’ fix, lovely for decorating an easter table or mantle. I’d like to make more as Easter decs for next year, best to buy white eggs of course, then I will blow them so they are hollow + light (and will keep longer, until one of us manages to smash it accidentally of course) and fix a hanging ribbon inside to hang from an indoor branch display. I should have pressed more snowdrops and cherry blossom!

Pretty food featured quite regularly these past 4 weeks, also with a floral theme as I got carried away making deserts (mainly vegan) with edible flowers basically just because I wanted to eat photograph them! #instagrammademedoit. In a way Instagram makes me more motivated to get my craft on ๐Ÿ˜‰ my family are starting to learn patience…they know to wait whilst their pudding is photographed before eating it. That’s normal right? Right?!

Those freezer, no-bake raspberry and pistachio slices (bottom photo) are seriously delish. I got the idea here.

We are so happy to see the blossom and have lots of exciting projects on the go…including a BIG plan for the little dolls house in these photos. It’s part way through it’s make-over then it’s getting some very special items made to go inside it, more of this to come soon.

The teepee in the photographs is a new design with limited edition Laura Ashley Home fabric, only 4 of these have been made in the MIDI size so if it ticks your boxes you’d better grab one quickly here before they are gone forever!

The April in blossom photo is part of an on-going challenge I’ve given myself (lets see if I can last the year), you can see the other photos so far over on my instagram account.
