I would like to start off by saying I had no idea Smorgasbord was an actual word... Who knew spell check would correct my spelling!! Moving on!
I had high hopes of writing these posts before the new year however my little lady had a horrible cold and we spent the holidays sitting on the couch watching Monsters Inc more times then I want to admit!!!! So this is a post about all of the projects I have been dying to post for some time now!!
At the beginning of December a friend threw a Cookie Exchange Party. Norah and I were in a sugar coma for weeks afterwards!! But my one friend made these amazing 'cookies' that I HAD to make again! Mostly because they are SOOOOO simple!!! Literally they are Ritz Crackers dipped in chocolate... um yep its that simple!!! I had a bunch of candy cane Hershey Kisses on hand so I melted them up. I don't have a double boiler so I just used 2 small pots I had and put the water in the bottom one... worked just fine for me!
This is the cover of the book. Norah had these 3 little finger puppets that were in a birthday card from her first birthday that she still loves playing with. So in the interest of time I sewed another rectangle on and shoved the puppets in the front!
Next up I had some sparkly paper left over from a previous craft. I had planned to write 'sparkly red circle' however this was a key lesson in what not to do while watching tv... somehow I wrote Bright... OOPS!!! I think on at least ONE of the books I got it right... Oh well!! Lesson learned!
Next up I knew I wanted to do a 'Soft' page. And since I still had a bunch of felt leftover I pulled out some green and cut an oval!
Finally I had some shiny blue material left from the wings I made for Ryan and I for Halloween and cut a triangle out. I had some issues gluing it on but eventually it stuck on!
