Keyrings and Oreo Cupcakes!

This little bee is the cutest thing I've added into something I've made since the glass seahorse on my aquatic bookmark! I found them months back and couldn't think how to use them, until I thought of making keyrings. This is something my mum only briefly dabbled in and in her case ir was tiny little cross stitched images or letters. So this is a bit of a change for me. I have done a couple with gemstones as well but I liked the change into something a little more bright and cheery.

I sent one of these guys with more yellow and less red beads to Bendigo but I thought I should make one for the madeit store as well.

Today has been a fairly relaxed day, I've not been well the past few months and I'm starting to get really sick of the pain. Pain is a bully, isnt it? It beats you into a sort of submission... Hopefully it'll all be sorted out in time, until then I am crafting and baking to get my mind off it!

Oreo Cupcakes!

I return to work tomorrow after our week off, hubby went back this morning. I thought maybe we'd have nice warm welcomes back to work if I baked some cupcakes, so I've made Bakerella's oreo cupcakes. They are stunning! So light yet moist at the same time, and such an easy recipe. Doesn't get better than that.
I've gone with a boiled vanilla bean frosting and filled them with chocolate ganache. Yuuum.

There's a whole oreo in the bottom. Let's hope Mr's workmates like it - they have become my taste testers!
