I almost forgot to tell you that the Jorgensen's of Sycamore Street Press have had me over at their place for the last two days as a guest. Yesterday I shared 5 random things I have been into as of late and today I am sharing a marshmallow making how-to.
Remember last year when I was showing off my own homemade squishy treats? Well this year you can show off too by following these 5 simple steps!
By the way, I have taken the liberty of including a few images of lovely letterpressed goods you can add to your holiday wish lists. Actually maybe you want to work on being a little less greedy as we are entering the new year and start shopping for others instead of yourself...you should knock out everyone on your list in a one stop shopping spree at SSP. Hmmm, I can't choose a favorite...just surprise me.
Let the weekend of homemade donut making, pumpkin carving, decorating one's self in the perfect disguise, and running amok begin! How can Halloween not be everyone's favorite holiday?
P.S. The costumes above were designed, made and worn by my bother Chase (aka: The most brilliant crafter I know) and his friend Emily, Halloween of '09. I'm so lucky to have a Wild Thing as a brother.
Some big, some little small, all lovely.
We celebrated the warmth of the day with a yummy brunch, a ladybug release (2,000 little ladies to be exact) and each other’s company.
Hello Spring, I love you.
