Hello ;) Happy Valentines Day!
Monsters LOVE love, and cookies, so we thought we would
incorporate the two and make some homemade valentines ;)
So I took my basic cookie recipe, and then drove ALL over Red Deer, looking for 'valentines smarties', - red and pink ones. But I could only find teeny tiny boxes, so I bought a huge bulk bag and picked out the blue, green, and brown ;)
Mix up the dough, add the smarties, I think I used about 3 cups.
6 to a pan. Bake about 15 minutes, or until golden brown, and cool.
While you cookies are baking / cooling, get crafty! I used cardstock, stamps, string, hole punch, and some paper cd cases. Put a piece of colored cardstock in the cd case to make it more sturdy, and then make any type of little tag to decorate the case.
Yummy, awesome, homemade valentines ;)

Hi :) Surprisingly enough, it hasn't been 27 days since my last post, although it's been long enough! I've had a crazy couple of weeks, & balance is lacking. We had a break in at work, my computer went missing, along with 7 months of data, that was not backed up to disc :(
So I have been digging my way out of paper piles for a week now.
My button shop has been crazy busy, & consumes 1 to 2 hours of my time each night. Then, there are those 4 teenagers in my house, whom are busy with Physics - hate it, Basketball - lots of travelling, usually in 2 different directions, and we are currently teaching #3 to drive. His test is today, ACK! I'm nervous! Although, I think he is going to do awesome.
I had to cancel out of the Winterfest Market in Sylvan this month, I couldn't possibly be ready for it. But, I have begun the HUGE task of sewing alot of monsters for the Lilac Festival, which is in May, in Calgary, I will be posting more on that as it gets closer.
I will also be posting a handfull of monsters in my etsy shop today :)
Watch for Sherman, and Valentines goodies SOON! xo
