Sugar cube jewelry set

Hello guys,

unfortunately, I haven't made many new things lately as I originally wanted. But I haven't done anything. I've started making new jewelry sets and on the picture you can see the first finished set - sugar cube earrings and a bear shaped sugar cube necklace.
The edges are a bit too round and not angular enough, but I think, they're petty cute though.

I'll definitely make more of those sets for the shop. Maybe I could also make some bracelets with sugar cubes. I'll see. ^^

Japanese Sweets



Hey guys, some time ago I traveled to Roermond in the Netherlands and in the city I visited a nice candy shop named "Jamin". To my surprise they sell Japanese sweets there, so I took the opportunity and bought a few things. 
 
In this post I'll show you the products I've bought and will try to describe, how they taste. :)


Meiji - Hello Panda Cookies:
In the package are round and bear head shaped cookies with a nice chocolate filling. The cookies contains drawings of pandas which make sport activities.

The biscuits are crunchy and the chocolate filling is not too sweet.
Maybe some of you know "Nutella and Go" from Ferrero. This is a package of breadsticks which can be dipped in Nutella hazelnut spread. I think, that it taste pretty similar. At least the cookie layer tastes like those breadsticks for me.

I like those Panda cookies. They're delicious. :)






Glico - Pocky Strawberry: 
The company Glico sells Pockys in Germany too, but under the name "Mikado" instead. But in Japan they have a lot more flavors. Here you can just find the cookies with milk chocolate, dark chocolate and white chocolate (and I believe, also some with nuts), so I was pretty curious, how the strawberry ones will taste like.

As I opened the package, the strawberry smell was pretty intensive. Smelled a bit like my strawberry oil for scenting my fake sweets. But luckily it tastes not as intense as it smells.
Those Pockys have a fine strawberry flavor and are not overly sweet.

I like them! I think, they're somehow fresh and are a nice snack for summertime. ^^

Café Latte Art Jewelry Sets #2

Hey guys, I wish you a happy new year! :)

I already wanted to show you the pictures of the next café latte sets earlier, but unfortunately I got a cold before and during the Christmas days. Also my husband and I  build a new and bigger table for my craft supplies and PC. Now I have more work space and shelves for my materials. But the table is not completely finished yet. I've planned to add some more shelves at the wall above one of the tables later.

Because my laptop is pretty old now and is about to meltdown, I got a new PC too which I had to set up.
Unfortunately, I've not continued working at my shop since Christmas . And because my husband is playing Fallout 4 at the new PC for hours, I can't work at the shop until his vacation is over. ^^
But I'll use the time to make some more gifts for the shop opening.

Well, whatever. On the pics you can see two more café latte jewelry sets. Unfortunately, the pictures are really, really bad, because the camera was not adjusted and now everything looks yellowish. ( ̄□ ̄)
