Crafting & Cooking Supplies

Yesterday I bought myself a couple of lovely things *smiles* I am mainly posting them to prove that I buy things other than yarn ;)

I found a cute little 6x6 paper pack at 50% off, and as I haven't done any paper crafting for a while I thought it might be just the motivation ;)

I love how they all work together, so I shall have fun combining them into different combinations. They also work really well with some of my existing supplies (yes, I have plenty of supplies already, but I couldn't resist... Did I mention they were on sale?!)

The other thing I got, again on sale, was this book:

I think I've mentioned before that I like cooking and I especially like making kitcheny gifts for people, so when I saw this I fell in love. There are some fantastic recipes, plenty that I would like to make. The photography in the book is gorgeous:

I'm not really doing it justice, taking pictures of pictures is never easy ;) Plus I happen to have taken pictures of 3 things I'm not entirely likely to make (marinated goats cheese jars, marshmallows and lollipops) but there are so many beautiful pictures and I quite liked those ones *laughs*

First plan is to make the salted caramels, just need to get a sugar thermometer now!


  1. how can you not want to make those lollipops! they're so cute!

  2. I WANT those lollipops! Oh if only I could cook...

  3. That book looks awesome! I can see what you mean about the photos, they look mouth watering.

  4. If I give you my sugar thermometer will you make me some nice things? Please?

  5. Wow those things look so yummy! I love buying books with stunning photography, it can be so inspiring.

    Can't wait to see the caramels. Um!

  6. Salted caramels are my absolute favorite!!! Yum!!!!


  7. Oooh, that does look like a lovely book. I don't really cook in the practical sense, but I love making random pretty yummies like those, and salted caramels sounds like the perfect start.


Hi, thanks for letting me know you stopped by :D
