Well I saw some cute earrings on a flicker picture. They are really easy to make. I have seen ones similar before. Two red beads, round ones, on silver T pins. Then above is a green glass leaf bead with a pin through it. Hanging from a silver wire earring. The beads are all transparent.

I borrowed this so I could try making them. She has some cute ideas.
Lately, I’ve noticed marshmallows being used in the creation of all sorts of edible goodies, and I’m completely blown away by the versatility of such an inexpensive grocery store find.
I mean, whoever thought of placing a marshmallow on a stick and breathing life into it with a few simple decorating tricks?
Not only are they the epitome of cuteness, but so easy to make, even the kids can get in on the action.
I’m talkin’ super easy!
To create these cupcake-esque marshmallow pops, you will need the following items:
- Large strawberry-flavored marshmallows
- Dark chocolate candy melts
- Lollipop sticks
- Red candies (Red Hots, M&M’s, etc.)
- Styrofoam rectangle
- Ribbon (optional)
Insert lollipop sticks into marshmallow centers and set aside (I enlisted the help of my daughter for this particular step).
Melt chocolate pieces in double boiler, stirring frequently. Dip marshmallow tips in chocolate sauce. Repeat if necessary for even coverage.
Immediately sprinkle pops with nonpareils and top with a single red candy. Use foam base to keep them upright while drying.
Tying ribbon around each stick is entirely optional. However, those dainty little bows add an undeniable touch of pizazz to an already appealing treat.
See, super easy!
The best part of all?
For around ten dollars, you’ve got enough marshmallow cuties to satisfy several sweet-toothed snackers!

Use deColourant to remove the color from dyed natural fabrics, such as cotton, rayon, or linen. deColourant also works on many papers. It will remove the dyed color and leave the natural undyed color of the item, depending, of course, on what the item is dyed with originally.
deColourant Plus acts the same way as deColourant, but in one step it removes the color (like deColourant) and adds a new color to replace the removed color. Basically, deColourant Plus is deColourant creme with pigments already added. In a single pass, deColourant Plus both removes the dyed color from natural fibers and replaces that color with the deColourant Plus pigment

I just finished another set of learning records. It’s late and I am tired. I still have to scan and file all the Logs and Samples. Then get LA benchmark tests ready to go. And get the Tier one and two binder ready.
But I had to look at a couple of blogs and add treasures to my blog. I was so happy to find that April Cornell has a blog.
And the monkey sock shirts….I need to make those for some darling little grandkids I know. I better get to bed.
There is still plenty I have to do tomorrow to get ready for my Quilt/Craft Retreat/Birthday Celebration in Anaheim Hills.

I clicked on a link while I was on the Graphics Fairy page and I couldn’t stop laughing. I ended up on a blog called Craft Fail-Don’t get your cowl in a twist.Then knit and felt basket and felted balls. I was trying not to wake up MDH who is recovering from appendicitis surgery. I’ll add a picture below. The stories are what’s funny or maybe I’m just tired. I can definitely relate having had some bloopers myself!!!! And there is one called Cake Wrecks also. I had to stop reading lest I wake my poor sweetie up. I am posting this here in case I need a good laugh in the future!!!!
