One of my very first followers, Maria, posted a request last month regarding her son's upcoming graduation. She wants to do something special before he joins the Marines. I have been thinking about that a lot lately, particularly since graduation season seems to be upon us. My husband is involved with Collegiate Ministry, and it amazes me how quickly the end of the semester is here. I'm going to miss the graduating Seniors. I have enjoyed their warmth, energy, and quirkiness. When they have come over, they have filled the house with laughter.
Tomorrow night is their end of the year picnic. So tonight my husband and I are in the kitchen prepping. He's over at the stove working on baked beans and homemade buttermilk pound cake (yes, I married a man who can cook and bake). And I decided to add a fun little treat to the festivities as well.
DISCLAIMER: This is Bakerella's idea. I deserve no credit. Check out her post for more info.
Aren't they yummy looking?
It amazes me that a few candies (in this case Ghirardelli Milk Chocolate and Peanut Butter squares, Reeses Peanut Butter Cups, Twizzler Pull & Peels, and Candy Buttons)...
Can have sticks added to them...
And turn into this...
Maria, I finally came up with an idea for a felt give-away. Now I just need to make, photograph it, and post it. But I promise it is coming.
And for everyone else, please let me know if there are specific projects you'd like to see. I can't make guarantees, but I'd love to know what interests and inspires you. I'd also love to hear your thoughts on the new look. It is still a work in progress.
