Valentine cards

The kids are all making their Valentine cards for their friends. They are having a blast coming up with ideas of what to make. TJ, my oldest, is making playing cards valentines. Noah, my second oldest, is making puppy faces valentines. Isabella, my third oldest, is making flower valentines. Tommy, Jacob, and Lucas, the younger ones that stay home, are making hearts with puff stickers. It is always fun to see what their little minds come up with.

"Primitive Pantry Cakes Recipe"

1 cup flour

1/2 cup salt

1 cup coffee grounds

1/2 cup cold coffee

Spray the pan with cooking spray. What she would have to do is press the dough all around the inside (about 1/4 or more thick), then wad up foil to fill in the middle, and then put a layer at the top to cover the foil. Otherwise, if the whole pan is filled with the dough, it won't dry completely and will get moldy and icky. Then, you bake it in a slow oven for a couple of hours or leave it out in the sun for a really long time to dry. When it's dry, rub spices all over it or make that fake icing with white glue and white paint to drizzle over the top.

I found this recipe on A PRIMITIVE JOURNEY's blog I can't wait to try it!

I am going to try to post every Sunday. I have been slacking. I have pictures to post. I didn't sell much at the craft sale that was a few months ago, but I have been selling quite a few dolls at Snappy Turtle. It is a little shop in Prairie du Chien. Shelly the owner of the shop is a wonderful lady and has made this happen for me. Thank you Shelly.
