You will need:
Sugar of your choice
Few drops of food colourant (I used the liquid one)
Oven proof dish and foil Spoon for mixing
Freezer bag and
Preheat the oven to 350ºF/180ºC
In a bowl mix the sugar and the colourants well. You can also flavour the mixture with some baking extract or essences.
Make a foil boat and place it in the oven proof dish Pour the coloured sugar into the oven dish and bake for 10 minutes.
if your oven is set to high the top of the sugar may start to caramelise, don’t worry this can be scrapped off.
Next break up the sugar with your spoon or use a fork.
When sugar are completely cooled, transfer the sugar to a freezer or durable transparent bag.
If you find that the sugar has a few clumps or crystals, use a rolling-pin to smooth it out (I didn’t find this necessary) Make a second or third colour if you wish.
Pour into desired containers, and enjoy.
These edible fairy dust make for a cute and yummy party favour.
I’m in need of a pin cushion, I came across a few tutorials on how 2 and it seemed pretty easy… gonna give it a try.

I wanted to do something special for hubby’s birthday, a medieval photo shoot came to mind as we both fans of these kind of movies. Dressing up in costumes, playing with swords and yes they are real was an absolute blast.
More of our photo shoot coming soon… Credit to Melissa for all the lovely photos
I needed a place to hang my hats, so I decided to make something. I build a solid wood frame and attached a backing to it. Next I painted the frame to my colour preference and painted the inner with black board paint. I wanted an oval mirrors 100x150mm, but instead I opted for a 150mm radius mirror which cost me a R100 less than the oval one.
I was not happy with the workmanship on the mirror, next time I will think twice before using the same guys to cut and polish my glass and mirrors, but I am pleased with the outcome of this project.
Your memory will forever live on in the hearts of Africans and all people across the world. Your sacrifice and courage will never be forgotten, you leave behind a legacy larger than life. I am proud to be a fellow South African and it has been an honour and privilege to have you as a Tata, thank you for everything that you have done for us. We should continue to strive toward equality for all, fight against oppression and remember the lessons of forgiveness; compassion; reconciliation and peace you have taught our nation and the world. In solidarity Tata Madiba we salute You, May your soul Rest in Peace.

Children are a blessing from God.There is nothing like children running around and laughing to make one feel fortunate. I continue to count my riches by the family and good friends that I have in my life.
Unfortunately I haven’t been able to update my blog and facebook page as all of my attention is focused on expanding Marra Interiors and other ventures associated with the Gails Diy Creations. The foundation stages are always the hardest, so much planning… For now I’m putting in the work, as I know it will all be worth it soon enough. I am very excited and can not wait to share it all with you.
