Sweet decadent treats…love them! Like these itty-bitty chocolatey cupcakes from a local bakery. Sometimes I have to have the most indulgent treats.
However, sometimes when I want something sweet, but also somewhat healthy, I’ll bake up a batch of oatmeal cranberry cookies with some ground flax seed mixed in. And I’ll swap some of the butter with applesauce too…no one ever knows the difference. Making these small, healthy adjustments is good for the heart.
I couldn’t help sneaking in a little “love”.
You can find the how-to instructions for making the 2″ x 2″ mini-canvases (shown above) at the Crescendoh Gallery.
Below is a heart-inspired package that I made for my sweet daughter, Brook. I repurposed a toilet paper roll into a pocket (simply machine sew one end together) and added a soft heart made of organic cotton batting.
Wrap some goodies in tulle and tuck inside…so easy and pretty.
Here’s another easy project for you. Altering Scrabble tiles is so quick that you can whip up a batch of heart love in no time (to make it even quicker, originally I created 5 different designs to fit on top of a tile, and then made color photocopies to make many multiples.)
For these next couple of weeks I’ll be taking a blog break. I’ve been craving some fresh air so I’ll be stepping outside more to take it all in. I should be back by the start of March. Until then, Happy sweet-heart-love to you and yours!
