My Butterfly in a Jar

Wanna see what I got for Valentine's Day!? I am ridiculously happy about this!
It is the Butterfly Collection, from Gemmy Industries
Watch the video, then when you, too have to have one, here are the two links I could find on Amazon!
Is my husband brilliant, or what!?
You are most welcome!
~Much Love!

Valentine Goodies

I know! It's been forever since I posted!

Let me tell you . . . it's been something around here. My New Year's Resolution, for 2012 . . .? I'm hibernating from Christmas till Valentine's Day

Today, I'm in the mood for something special and Valentine-y that will tickle the funny bones of my Dear Ones.

Pondering something special and sweet for your favorite Valentines? Let me share thse really cute food ideas that I ran across at Our Best Bites. Yep, cute food! I submit the evidence below.
I'm making the Lovebug Cookies for my own Dearests. Gotta get myself to the grocer! Valentine's Day is tomorrow!

I found their site a few months ago, and let me tell you . . . those girls know their way around a kitchen! Once I realized that I had shared these cookie links with my Mother and my daughters, it occurred to me that you might like to know, too!

And, AND, that's not all! They have a cookbook!

It's scheduled for release on March 9, 2011

I told you they were good!

note, February 15th: The photo above? Mine! Neither my cookies, nor my photo are as polished as their's. In spite of thickening, I found the glaze to be too thin and runny. I think I would use Royal Icing next time. But the kids liked them! A lot! The big kids, too! {read: Daddy and Papa.}
