Candy Corn Fudge

This past weekend, I volunteered to bake at a Bake Sale at my church to support Pediatric Cancer Awareness and this was my creation. Being the lazy baker that I am, I searched for an easy recipe for fudge. On You Tube, of all places, I found this easy-peasy recipe! After trying out the easy fudge recipe and tasting it, I thought this really needs something....but what?!?! Ah ha, marshmallow!! So for the second batch I also melted some marshmallow and added that to the original mixture. This was better!! It actually had the texture of candy corn too. Pretty cute too if I do say so myself! The second change I tried was to use the small cupcake tins rather than the square pan and cut squares. Either way is great, I just didn't want to have to cut them up - I know my cutting skills and didn't want to risk making uneven pieces.

Don't forget to use PAM in the cupcake tin to make it easy to remove the treats.
Yea!! Super Duper cute! They were a big hit at the bake sale!! I just hoped they tasted good!

We asked for donations only for our baked goods and raised over $1400.00!!! Thanks so much to everyone!

Thanks for looking and have a great day,

First Try at Fabric Spray Paint

I saw this cute spray fabric paint in Tuesday Morning, and I knew there was something I could do with it. So of course I bought it without having an exact idea of what to do with it. Thought I would contemplate it! So, being the "bag lady" that I am, thought I could spruce up one of my bags. Make it a little cuter, and try out the spray paint. Used my Sizzix to cut letters from shelf liner (has sticky back and is cheaper than vinyl!).
Next adhered the letters to my bag. This bag is from 5 Below, a store that sells all items for $5 or less! Kinda like the Dollar store. So I figured that if it didn't turn out exactly right, it wouldn't be a great loss! Randomly sprayed the paint over the letters and waited a couple minutes. Finally took the letters off! TAaaa DAaaaa! Not too bad. Next time I'll have to think of something cuter to put on the bag! Not too bad for my first try.

Thanks for looking and have a great day. Cathy

Twas the Night before School Started

A friend shared this poem on Facebook! Too cute not to share. Enjoy parents!

Twas the night before school started,
When all through the town,
The parents were cheering...
It was a riotous sound!
By 8, kids were washed and tucked into bed...
Where memories of homework filled them with dread!
New pencils, new folders, new notebooks too!
New teachers, new friends...
Their anxiety grew!
The parents just giggled when they learned of this fright-and shouted upstairs:
Go To Bed! It's A School Night!!
Have fun kids!!!!!! Enjoy PARENTS!!!!!!
