My New Favorite Dessert...

My sister calls this dessert 'Heaven in a Bowl'.  I have to agree with her on that one!! 

What is this dessert, you may ask?  Well....take a look.

No Bake Cookies over Vanilla Ice Cream = Perfection!  All you do is make your favorite No Bake Cookie recipe, and while it's still warm, spoon it over some vanilla ice cream.  Trust me, you'll LOVE it!!

If you don't have a No Bake Cookies recipe, here's the one I use:

{No Bake Cookies}

1 C. butter
1 C. sugar
2 Tbsp. cocoa
1/2 C. milk
3 C. oats (I use quick oats)
1/2 C. peanut butter
1 tsp. vanilla
dash of salt

Melt butter in a pan and add sugar, cocoa, and milk.  Boil for 1 minute, stirring constantly.  Take off heat and add oats, peanut butter, vanilla, and salt.  Mix well.  Drop by spoonful on wax paper and chill.

**When making this for an ice cream topping, don't drop by spoonful on wax paper and chill.  Just pour over your ice cream and chow down!!

I apologize for being MIA lately!  We've got a little over a week left before school gets out for the summer, and it seems like every day is filled with one activity or another.  I haven't had much time to craft, but I'm hoping things will slow down, 'cause I need my craft time!!

Here's a few projects that caught my eye from last week:

Deanna from Shady Tree Diary shared her Portable Growth Chart!  Isn't that such a clever idea?!
 
Janelle from Of Pinks and Fairy Tales shared this adorable Pleated Tie Necklace!  Love it!!

I hope you all had a wonderful Mother's Day!!  When my husband and kids asked what I wanted for Mother's Day, my reply was this:  "A day off from cooking dinner and doing dishes!!"  Well...they came through and made a yummy dinner and cleaned up afterwards!!  THE BEST MOTHER'S DAY EVER!!

The projects that I chose to feature today are all pillows.  Fabulous pillows!!

Eleni from Sew Happiness shared her adorable Sprocket Pillow!

Mother's Day Corsages

Mother's Day is just a few short days away...how did that happen?! 

I've been planning/working on gifts for my Mom and MIL for weeks, and am thrilled to be sending them these adorable Mother's Day Corsages!   


Oh, how I LOVE THEM!!  They were a little time consuming, but TOTALLY worth it!!  I wanted the packaging to be as cute as the corsages, so I used some empty plastic strawberry containers and left over paper Easter grass. 


Here's a closer view...

They went off in the mail yesterday just to be sure that my Mom and MIL will get them in time for Mother's Day.  And since I loved them so much, I may have made myself one (or two) as a Mother's Day gift to myself....shhhhhh!

Sew Cute Tuesday {5.03.11}

Yesterday was one of "those" days.  While I was teaching my clogging class, one of my daughters came running into the building with a frantic look.  Apparently my 3-year-old son was throwing rocks and ended up shattering the driver's side window of my van.  Nice.  And I had forgotten my purse, so I didn't have my cell phone with me.  I ended up having to carefully take out all the jagged pieces of the window and tape up some plastic around the window frame.  But on the bright side, I had to vacuum up all the pieces of glass from the inside of my van.  So I lost a window and gained a clean van.  I'm not sure if that's a fair trade, but what can ya do?!

Now, let's see some projects that caught my eye from last week's linky party:

I seriously need one of these Geisha Fan Aprons.  Check it out at The Attached Mama!

How cute are these Little Boy Shorts from Taylor Made?!

And I loved Cheri Quite Contrary's Summer Head Scarf!
