How to make chocolate covered coffee beans

So Mastertons gave us our own #ECMeetup blend for the meet-up and I love them even more now. Everyone got two samples, the roasted beans and the machine blend (I know for someone who loves coffee I should be a little more clued up on terms) anyway I don’t have a machine for the beans and decided to turn them into chocolate covered treats for when I need a treat (I always need a treat, I’m puppy-like in my treat neediness).

Aidan and I love to craft, I know  I’ve done such an amazing job of keeping that little fact a secret, but it’s true.

Hehehe just teasing, but really, I didn’t think anything would surpass the PNP stickeez craze, but I was wrong as Checkers sort of hit the nail on the head with their Little Shop Collectables. Grown folk are losing their minds over these tiny stinking cute toys.

I got a bunch yesterday and simple HAD TO turn them into fridge magnets…

einstein quote

Want to make a cute finger puppet? Well a friend of mine, Mechelle,  is a wiz with felt, she made Aidan a set of finger puppets for Christmas and he LOVES THEM – It is really so great for imagination play. I posted the picture above on instagram and received requests for a tutorial.

Lucky for me Mechelle found time in between raising three beautiful girls, working and studying to do a quick how to for us… (next I’ll ask her how she makes gummy berry juice because I can’t imagine where else she gets the energy from)
