Blame It On Blumebox

I am a huge Blumebox fan - I love everything about their products. But just about this time last year, I truly believe I was blinded by that love. Need proof?

Exhibit A: Here is a picture of a Blumebox. Look carefully at the first part of the product name - it's spelled "BLUME".

Exhibit B: Here is a picture of a Valentine's Day card that I made last year. I was trying to cleverly change the well-known expression by using the word "bloom" in place of "boom". However, as you can clearly see in the picture, the word was completely misspelled - twice! Sheer coincidence that it was spelled like Blumebox? Not a chance...I was blinded by love!

In an effort to redeem myself, I decided to recreate the original play on words concept - this time using the correct spelling of the word! I found this great graphic that I tweaked slightly and combined it with an 8 inch red Blumebox. Here's the result...

Please note the spelling...

Thanks for indulging me - I feel so much better now that I had the opportunity to write a wrong!

I Heart Rice Krispy Treats

Even though it feels like we just rang in the New Year, a trip to my favorite craft store quickly reminded me that Valentine's Day is almost here! Everyone who follows the blog knows that I don't bake, but I've been perfecting my culinary skills in the art of rice krispy treat making for years. So here is my latest creation in honor of Valentine's Day.

I started by pulling out a couple of heart-shaped cookie cutters - a big one and a little one.

I made the rice krispy treats using this basic recipe (sorry no pics, I got lazy). I then divided the mix in half and added red food coloring to one half. Once the treats had cooled, I cut out a heart using the big cutter. I then used the little cutter to cut out another heart in the middle of the big heart. Finally I switched the little hearts out - here's the result...

I know I've said it before, but this might be the easiest thing I've ever made!

More Valentine's Day crafts on the way soon...
