April=Blossom

Hello and welcome, I’ve been busy behind the scenes here at Moozle with 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 πŸ˜‰ 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.

Da Wanda Blog Feature

Hello and thanks for stopping by.

Do you know about Da Wanda? It is a German founded selling site for all things handmade and is HUGE, mainly in Germany but it’s gaining a big following right accross Europe and as you probably know the German e-commerce market place alone is massive so it’s a great place for Moozle to be.

I recently teamed up with Nina @ Pinspiration, the Pinterest guru to design a teepee for a baby to big-boy room makeover that was featured on the Da Wanda blog.

I’ve had the pleasure of working with Nina before on her son’s room make-over, you can see the finished result of our first collaboration previously on the blog here.

Our recent project can be viewed on Youtube here. This video is in German but you do get a good sense of what the teepee is like in ‘person’ so to speak. This is the MIDI size in case you are trying to work out which size is best for the space you have, we also supply a smaller, toddler teepee, our Reg size which is great for small spaces. There is a handy size guide chart on our website here.

The Pinspiration blog feature with lots more photos of the room can be found here.

Thanks again Anna! Happy to hear you all enjoy the Moozle teepee xxx

Autumn Flowers

This is a new colourway of an old favourite, the original ‘vintage flowers‘ design teepee complete with tree (and I don’t make too many with one of those these days – they take too long to cut out and stitch on!!), but, I do love a new colourway and couldn’t resist seeing how this one would look when the customer requested ‘greens and browns’ for the design. This one is on it’s way to a Montessori home school room in Israel! It never ceases to amaze me where my tents end up, please PLEASE send me a photo of it in it’s new home?!

If you’d like to order one similar, send me a message via Moozle and I’ll see what I can do for you? You can also see some more pics of it, including details of the gorgeous vintage fabrics I’ve used on my Flickr page.

Of course I couldn’t keep Dexie out of it and he just ‘happened’ to be dressed in colours to match with his green top and new Doors t-shirt (a happy find at the car-boot sale a couple of weeks ago).
