Valentine M&M’s Cookies

I must really have Valentines on the brain this week, because this is the 4th Valentines post this week!  

There must be love in the air here!

Today I have these yummy M&M’s Valentine cookies.  This recipe has been in our family for a long time.  The name of these cookies on my recipe card is:  “Leora’s Chocolate Chip Cookies”  This is a nickname that I have had for my sister for a long time, I don’t really even remember where it came from, but I remember saying “Leora” in a mocking tone every time I called her that!  Some things just never go away, do they? 

Anyway, here is my version of these yummy cookies:

Thursday’s Thought-Every Love Story…

How is everyone doing today?  I am still in the cleaning out and organizing mode!  I love it when I get in this mode, I seem to get this way every January and I have to take advantage of it because it does not seem to stay very long!  I got my closet all cleaned out and organized and most of my office (I still need to work on my desk top a little bit)  Today, I put a BUNCH of stuff away in my scrapbook room and organized somewhat.  I still have so many scrapbook supplies from when I owned my store.  I need to purge some of it out, but I don’t really even know where to start!  How about you, are you in the cleaning/organizing mode or has that mode already passed you by? :)

Well, here is my Thursday’s Thought for this week.  I thought that this would be a fun one to print and put in a frame to put in my kitchen to go along with my few Valentines decorations.

I love this saying :



This would be a fun little framed gift or it would also make a cute card or tag!

To print, right click  over image and go to “save image as” then save in a folder.  Or you can right click over image and go to “copy image”  then open your favorite program like Word or Presentations, right click again and go to “paste”  You can then size it and print it.  This is formatted to 8 x 10 for those that would like to send it to their favorite photo processing center.

I hope that you are having a great day…be sure to  Hug the ones you love today.

Thanks for visiting!  Love Ya!

You Light Up My Life

This is for my hubby for Valentines Day!

I love you!

But you might enjoy it too!:)  It’s a classic.

 This was also the theme for my grandkids Valentines.

 I filled a small box with some treats, a little surprise, and a light up balloon!  Plus some Love Potion #9.


 This is the Valentine that I made to go with each of the boxes.  I printed mine out on photo paper and loved the glossy look!  I know that these are late for you to use this year, but I needed to surprise the kids, so you can save them for next year!  This would be cute with little flashlights, glow sticks or anything that lights up!


Check out my new facebook page and the free Family Subway Art printable!

I hope that this day is filled with love.

Happy Valentines Day Everyone!  Love Ya!


Valentine Sugar Cookies

Hey everyone, I would love for you to visit my new facebook page and like and share it!

There is a FREE fun family subway art for you to print over there.

Last night I finally bit the bullet and made some of my sugar cookies.

 I resist doing this every year because they are 1) a little bit time consuming, 2) messy to make and 3)  I cannot resist eating them…at all!  (Which is not a good thing!)

Quilt As You Go Table Runner

I have been wanting a table runner for my table, but I wanted a square one, not a rectangle one.  I had several different pieces of fabric that were red and white, so naturally I decided that I needed to make my table runner.   I made it with all my scraps and this whole thing did not cost me any extra money, because I had everything that I needed!  Score!

I love how it looks on my kitchen table!

Valentines Pillow Wrap

I have another pillow wrap for you today.

I love these wraps because they are such an easy way to decorate and a pillow can add so much to a room.  This is my Valentines version.  I love the colors with the touch of green added in the ruffle.  It goes perfect with my black pillow, so I did not need to make a new pillow,  just the wrap!
