Wow….can’t believe January is nearly over. Happy 2012 to everyone and thanks for supporting my little blog. Just really getting started but wanted to share some cute Valentine treats and crafts that I’ve made. We even had to make a special trip today to ‘Michael’s’ so my children could each get a glue gun! and I’m happy that I finally figured out the sewing machine.
Valentine’s Sweetie Pie Pops – I am a little obsessed with cute little individual desserts so made these ‘strawberry/chocolate’ pie pops. I used store bought pie crust and cut out the heart shapes with a cookie cutter. Slice a strawberry and sprinkle in some chocolate chips and cover with another heart shaped pie cut out. I used alphabet cookie cutters to spell out ‘sweetie’ and baked at 375 degrees until golden brown.
Valentine’s Day….You make my heart ‘pop’ marshmallow pops…..dip marshmallow pop in your choice of chocolate or candy melts, dip into pop rocks candy. I added a candy heart sprinkle.
Chocolate ganache covered shortbread heart cookies
Craft – Pocket Sized hand sanitizer Valentine themed holders. These are extremely popular at my Daughter’s School, they can be clipped onto a lunch box or backpack. I can create in your choice of colours.
Thanks so much for reading….

We are on the school count down here….my oldest daughter will be a 7th grader next Thursday….where does the time go?. In keeping with the ‘back to school’ theme, just wanted to share a couple of gift ideas with you, for a special/new Teacher.
I made some cute ‘pencil’ shortbread cookies. Didn’t have a cookie cutter so made my favourite Shortbread recipe and cut a large rectangle, cut them into pencil shapes and then made the pointy tip for the pencil. I used ‘pencil’ coloured sugar sprinkles to mimic a real pencil.
Here’s my apple fabric craft:
Sample gift for Teacher:
Here’s another idea using a little house box that I found at Michael’s: Included are 3 boxes of crayons, 2 packs of glue sticks and an apple shortbread cookie.
Thanks for reading:)
