Inhale & How To Make Your Own Elderflower Syrup

Summer Solstice comes closer and closer and with it the most beautiful time of the year in our garden. Fresh green, a lot of blooming flowers and fruits and vegetables to be harvested soon.
Elderflowers are at their best now so I made some Elderflower Syrup yesterday. 
Here is the Recipe:
All You need is:
20 Elderflower Blossoms
Some Pepper Mint Leaves
1 Kilogramm Suger
1 Liter Water
25 Gramm Citric Acid

 Use a large pot add the water and the Citric Acid and carefully put all the blossoms and the pepper mint leaves into the water. Cover the bowl with a tea towel and store in a cool and dark place for about 24 hours. Then strain the blossoms from the syrup and add the sugar. Bring the syrup to a boil over medium high heat and cook until the sugar has dissolved. Once dissolved, boil the syrup for about five more minutes. Pour the hot syrup into the sterilized jars or drink it right away. Enjoy!

Cuddle Doll EBook - the best doll for a baby is a mama made doll!

I my opinion the best doll for a baby is a mama made doll. I just created a new Cuddle Doll Design in my Studio and since the making of this little doll is very suitable for beginners I decided to prepare a  Ebook for the making of this little baby cuddle doll.
I did like the work on this Ebook a lot and so it became the first one of more doll making Ebooks to come. I is a professional laid out, step by step tutorial containing over 50 pictures and detailed descriptions as well as explanations of the most important sewing techniques for doll making.
It also contains a lot of information about the meaning of doll play and about materials for doll making.

Through my own experience of many years of doll making I know how difficult it can be to find and get proven materials of good, fair trade and organic quality for doll making. So I decided to offer a suitable doll making kit for the Cuddle Doll EBook which will be available soon in three beautiful colors: rose, seeblau and moosgrün. All fabrics in this kit have a beautiful texture and are GOTS - Global Organic Textile Standard and fair trade.

The Cuddle Doll EBook is beeing completed in german version in the next days and will be translated in english version professionaly and launched in the upcoming weeks.
