Ohhhhhh! Ekkkk! arrrrrrrrrrrrrr its ok!

Its the 13th!

but its only Thursday so its ok!


We have a new Challenge at As You Like It

and this Fortnight we are sponsored by the lovely My Mum's Craft Shop

The theme this challenge is showcase a project using 
an Inspirational Object but you have to say why!

So as we want to see what has inspired you and ask in order to qualify for the prize,  include a photo of your inspirational object so that we can see what's inspired you.

So then

Inspirational Objects wow there are so many something that has alway inspired me to create in the kitchen is my Grandfathers Sugar thermometer, My mum gave it to me a lot of years ago, I don't use it very often but have used it to make Jam and marmalade.  

My grandfather made sweets, chocolates and candies
this is his box of wax wrappers and just a handful of metal moulds

 So what did I make then using the inspiration?
What's Bubbling? 
ok I am not a witch! although it did feel magical..

old fashioned soft toffee

Set and cut up! Ohhh Lush! not good for a diet but...

only 47 calories each so not realllllly bad!

Heres a better look at the wax wrappers

I worked out that they were over 50 years old,

Nicely wrapped using the wax papers

Errrrrrrrr who's that sneaking a toffee

Challenges I am playing are:

Shopping Our Stash - Oh Shiny - use something shiny - Sweet wrappers
All Crafts Challenge - NO CARDS - (February/March) Anything but a Card

Happy Crafting, hope you can come and play!
Stop by the challenge and see what other fabulous things have inspired the rest of the team!

  3. They look so good and 47 calories isn't too bad. But can you stop at just one?
    You have to try making something using the moulds.
