Valentine's Advent

So we all know this one, right?  I saw this here and just had to do it for my hubby!  What you do is make 14 cards (I made 16 because I'm starting tomorrow).  On the back, you write an activity you and your spouse can do together that day.  The point is to bring you closer together in an inexpensive way.  There are lots of ideas listed in the link above.  I seriously did all mine in 45 minutes with my baby getting into everything (e.g. spilling modge podge in my carpet).  It's very easy and really fun!

(I was in a hurry, that's why 15 & 14 are in the wrong places.  Oops!)

Have fun crafting!

Potato Chip Cookies

Yes I know the name throws you off...just promise that you will give them a try...They are delicious! They are my brothers favorite cookie...{one of my favorites too}Potato Chip Cookies
1 lb butter
1 cup sugar
3 1/2 cup flour
4 oz. crushed potato chips
1/2 cup nuts (optional)

Cream butter and sugar till smooth.
Add the rest and Mix thoroughly
Drop from teaspoon on ungreased cookie sheet.
Bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes
When cool...give them a dunking in powdered sugar.

--I don't ever recall doing these with nuts. But I think they would be good that way too. Make sure the cookies are completely cool before tossing them in a bag of powdered sugar. --

Now GO make them!
