Coffee…Coffee…COFFEE!!!

Ever felt that craving, the need – the MUST HAVE?

For coffee that is 😉 Oh dearies – I feel it everyday! And I especially felt it when seeing that awesome Percolator that Sandy of Simply Crafty SVGs put in her store last fall.

I have seen many editions of the Percolator made and each and everyone made me thirst for my favorite drink. So I decided that while sipping a Café Latte, I would make my own.

I chose to make it realistic but tiny (due to lack of storage space). So it’s downsized to 50% of the original.

It’s made from AC Cardstock in Charcoal and Black and decorated with Silhouette Printable Foil in Silver.

And it’s very tiny – only a bit taller than a Stickles glue 😉

I found the tag in a 6×6 paper pad from Echo Park – “Coffee” Collection – it just fit so well. Another could be: I’ll take my coffee black as my soul 😀

So easy and fun to make – still thinking of other ways to make it and might be doing so in the future. I’m a coffee addict – there I said it!

Thanks for joining me today – please let me know what you think of this tiny Percolator in a comment below and until next time: Happy Crafting ❤

Breakfast at…..

…..Müllers 😀

Hiya – soo good of you to drop by today as I invite you to breakfast here at my house.

I’ll be serving the traditional feast of Bacon and Eggs along with some nice hot toasts and a cup of coffee. Sounds good? Well here we go:

Always coffee first:

This is a cute coffee cup from Creatieve Papier Uitspattingen – a new (for me) place with SVG’s that I recently found.

I made the cup with AC Cardstock in Vanilla and decorated it with patterned paper from Graphic 45’s “Home Sweet Home”.

I filled a bag with coffee beans and put it in and if these were made of chocolate, it would be ready to give away as a small hostess gift.

Next is the food:

This is also from Creatieve Papier Uitspattigen – except the bacon which I found in the Silhouette Design Store design #4747.

The egg is part of a freebie with a cute frying pan. I couldn’t get the pan assembled so instead I scaled up the saucer from above and turned it into a dinner plate.

It’s also made from AC Cardstock in Vanilla and decorated with Graphic 45 paper.

The Egg and bacon are also made from AC Cardstock in White, Melon, Brown Sugar, Chocolate and Caramel.

I inked the edges of the egg whites to make them look a bit fried 😉 Yummy

Finally we need the toats:

Yeah….WOW…..it looks totally real! Find it here.

This toaster is made from AC Cardstock in Black and decorated with silver metal cardstock and a tiny enamel dot on the regulator.

The toasts are made from AC Cardstock in Brown Sugar and Caramel and inked heavily with a brown ink pad from Ingvild Bolme.

And here is the complete breakfast setting:

So I will see you later….I promise to serve you some hot coffee and not just the beans 😀

Thanks for stopping by today – I hope you enjoyed your meal and that you’ll come back to visit real soon ❤
