Happy Valentines Day!

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.
Now, make LARGE cookies. I think these were about 1/3 of a cup in size,
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.
Insert cookie, wrap with string, tie on tag, and voila!
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
