I got a package in the mail from Breaking Bad

DSC00817

I must admit I got a bit spooked when all these small plastic packages flew out of the big one but it all smelled lovely and the I saw it was from the very great “queen of Swedish Chocolate balls” Heidi Hed! She has been  flauting her baking on instagram and I’ve been dying to make these babies. But I never have unrefined sugar at home and always end up making these instead.

But now I got this lovely gift – with a note:
“- I didn’t put eggs and butter in the box… didn’t think it was a good idea and then Isabelle now you have NO excuses. ”

Well Hedi you are so right!

Thank you – thank you funniest gift ever!
And such a great idea of giving ingredients!

This is how they will end up – photo taken from Heidis instagram

Heidi is such a great supporter of anything that Jenny and I make. Fells so good to have you in our corner!

I’ll get back with a review of them laters!
Big kisses
Isabelle

And yes but of course – the recipe:
Hidi Heds chocolate balls
150 gr Butter
1 egg
3dl oatmeal
1/2 dl coconut flakes
1/2 dl cocoa
1/2 dl O´boy (Swedish instant chocolate milk powder )
1 1/2 unrefined sugar
1 tbspoon vanilliasugar

Mix all the ingredients in a bowl. Make small balls and roll them in sprinkles or coconut flakes. Let them get cold and more stiff in a fridge.

Make a name letter lamp DIY – Marquee inspired

marqueelightdosfamily

This DIY is also from the TV4 morningshow. John was one of the kids with me that day and we made his name as akind of marquee light.
I bought letters in cardboard. John paintend them gold and glued fun stuff on top. The I simply cut off the bakside of the letters and made a big enough hole to push trough the LED strand – lamps.

Since the strand was so massive I glued, with a glue gun, all the letters on a bigger sheet of white cardboard that I already had cut in the shape of a cloud. That made it possible to hide all the cords at the back of the cloud. I naturally had to cut the cloud in the shape of the letters to get the cords through. I then just rapidly attached all the cords with some tape. It would also have been nice to do a cardboard side as in this marquee star I showed to you yesterday.

I just got done editing some photos from my photo shoot in Stockholm last week. I photographed such a cool home and like I always do I took some pictures of myself while I was there. Apparently this is what I looked like that day.
Yikes!

Marquee Light DIY

star3

This is a DIy project I’ve been wanting to try for a long time. How to make your own marguee lights. Once you get a hang of ot – it wasn’t that hard to make. Well I guess nothing is when you learn it- right?
A couple of weeks ago I explained it all on Tv4 Nyhetsmorgon. It’s in Swedish but you can watch it here.

You’ll need:
Cardboard  about 3mm thick – try in the store. If you want to make letters then take cardboard strong to hold but not too thick that you still are able to shape it without getting fold marks.
Ruler
Pen
Glue gun
LED lights – I bought light’s with small balls on top that I was able to remove, then stick trough the cardboard and then reattach them on the front. It’s important to use lights that’s not going to be hot. Like LEd.
Tape
Paint

The star is easy to make. I just drew a star – then measured each points and made sides that where equally long. The sides are about 7-10 cm high and I drew a line at the middle to know wehere to attach them on the star. The sides is for making the star strong but also to hide all the electricity at the back and to give it a great finish. I just glued all the sides to the star with a glue gun. Then I made random holes for the lightning. And at the end painted the whole thing.

At the back I simply attached the LED strand with some tape.

The kids wanted it in gold and red -  made it look even more like at the Circus.
