Oh hello, C.R.A.F.T. lovers! Thank you so much for letting me crash your favorite blog! I brought wine, so even if you don’t like the Valentine my sweet friend, Jamie, invited me to share we can still talk about our feelings and possibly dance around in our pajamas to Wilson Phillips songs. My friends and I also have a “green box challenge” that becomes pretty popular after a drink or three, so that’s an option, as well. I’m up for whatever – you choose!!
My name is Dusty, and my little patch of internet is found at All Things G&D – a lifestyle blog for anyone with a sense of style, a sense of humor, and a sense that a bottle of wine has just been opened.
You can find out more about me HERE, although before you pop over for a visit I have to warn you – I’m in the middle of a blog remodel, so hold your judgement. You know when you stop by someone’s house and they greet you at the door all flustered and saying, “So sorry about the mess!! We’re in the middle of redecorating/cleaning puked up Cheerios off the wall/not sleeping/watching Project Runway marathon reruns…”?!
That’s me right now, only change out “house” for “blog.”!
(Have we hit that awkward part where I’m talking too much about myself?)!
(Got it. Moving on!)!
I’m so happy to be over here at C.R.A.F.T. today, hanging out with with the super fabulous and über crafty Jamie, and sharing my love for…well…love! I’ve got an adorable little 5 year old with a sweet tooth and a class full of great friends, so here’s what we’ll be sharing with them this Valentine’s Day:!
I love Valentine greetings that are age-appropriate, and this idea – plucked from Jamie’s list of 100 Clever Valentine’s Day Sayings – certainly delivers! To make, I sandwiched two pieces of graham crackers between a homemade marshmallow, cut to the same size as the graham crackers. Next, I dipped it all in a quick-setting chocolate candy coating and topped it with sprinkles.!
Not interested in making your own custom-shaped, homemade marshmallows? (Clearly you’re not addicted to Project Runway marathons and trying to justify your TV time by watching it
from the kitchen. #nojudgment) You could also use a jumbo marshmallow cut in half and sandwiched between your grahams. OR – even easier! Go ahead and toss a couple slabs of graham crackers, a marshmallow or two, and a few squares of Hershey’s chocolate in a bag and gift it as a “build your own” s’mores!!
Lastly, tie on one of my free “Every Day I Like You S’more” printables so it all makes sense.
