today is one of those days where i’m pinching myself to see if my life is real. i feel so, so lucky and honored to work with lauren and derek of the curiosity shoppe. why you ask? besides being incredible friendly and totally cool, they made what is, in my opinion, the cutest and most perfect diy marshmallow video in the entire world. need proof? just click play below and watch lauren and derek show you how to make your own marshmallows and create a gift-ready hot chocolate kit. with the music and lauren’s cute hair it feels like a san francisco version of amelie. complete with lovely food shots and an adorable couple at the end. i just love these guys. thanks to lauren and derek for the wonderful video (and all of their incredible posts so far)- i hope you all enjoy it- be sure to check out their text below the video, too!
holiday hot chocolate kit
well, here it is—our last diy wednesday post of 2007! to celebrate, we thought we’d do something a little different, so we made a movie, “how to make: home-made marshmallows”. we always get a kick out of making gifts for our friends and family, and we thought this peppermint marshmallow recipe from the latest issue of ReadyMade would be the perfect addition to our holiday hot chocolate kits.
we wish you all a wonderful holiday and a happy, happy new year!
derek & lauren
