DIY Cheese Party Labels

Photobucket Photobucket


Since I haven't posted on here for quite some time, I thought I would share with you my little DIY cheese labels!
I'm a huge cheese lover, and spent last night having a lovely cheese and wine evening with one of my best friends. I have plenty of leftovers ready for tonight's meal, along with some warm mulled wine!

First of all, I designed my labels on Photoshop as long strips, printed them out and cut them! Then - glue  the strip, place a cocktail stick in the middle, and fold in half. There you have it, an easy, simple and cute way to label cheese for your Christmas parties!

I hope you're all having a very lovely weekend so far. I can't believe it's Christmas on Tuesday...!
I hope Santa will be very kind to all of you!!

Melted Snowmen Biscuits

Photobucket Photobucket

I recently came across Becky's cute little melted snowmen biscuits and had to give them a go!
They were really easy to make, although a little time consuming due to the details, but if you make them in batches, you're good to go!!
If I decide to make some more before Christmas, I think I'll make my own gingerbread biscuits!

For this recipe, you will need...

Plain biscuits of your choice
Icing sugar
Marshmallows
Icing pens

Place a little bit of icing sugar on your biscuit to make sure your marshmallow stays in place. Cover the entire biscuit and marshmallow with icing. Once your icing has set, it's time to get creative and decorate your snowmen...

Let me know if you decide to make your own melted snowmen! I guarantee they'll be a huge hit!

A post swap

A while ago, both me and the lovely Sophie decided to do a post swap. 
Unfortunately, I've been extremely busy lately and haven't really had the time to blog... I do feel rather ashamed.
Sophie sent me a yummy pack of jelly babies and a very bubbly chocolate Santa! She also sent the gorgeous nail transfers (which appeared in one of my recent blog posts) along with a very cute postcard which is now hanging up on my wall, and some other hand made goodies!

As promised, your package is in the post Sophie (and apologies for the huge delay!) I'm sending over some gorgeous Peris and Corr goodies as well as my hand knitted Peter Pan collar!

On another note, apologies for the lack of blog posts lately. There really is no excuse, and I do intend to take my Canon on more days out with me so I can actually blog some more. I'm taking the week off work next week to spend some quality time with family, finishing off my Christmas shopping and seeing Mumford and Sons at Manchester (plus a quick visit to the Manchester Christmas Market. I'm so excited!)
I'm also intending on posting some Christmassy recipes, DIY makes and my easy knit mittens pattern... Keep your eyes peeled.


I hope you've all had a very lovely weekend. Do you have any plans for this week?
