I'm an idiot and don't know if I can make an active link work in a comment box? So, I'll just cut/paste a link below for you on the freezer paper stencils. I had bookmarked it ages ago with the intent to give it a try. In the article there is also a link to Angry Chicken's site, who discusses the stenciling process as well. If this doesn't work - I also added the link on the post at my blog, which you commented on.

These are really very easy. I love instant gratification projects!! :) Enjoy....

Tattered Cover was a dud huh? Dang it. I have always had luck with Barnes and Noble... mabye there are more than one of those in your area. I wish they had more independant bookstores. Small but lovingly know? I love the American Girls books. Love the 'My Story' books too. I hope that is the correcr name for them. They tell historical stories from a child/teen view. Hope you and family have a very happy Valentines day!!

The mint cookies are the best. Try freezing them. Yummy. Danielle's Brownie troup will be selling the chocolate and vanilla cookies next month. They are my favourite. Brings back lots of memories as to when I would sell them as a Brownie.
Speaking of Newberry books, have you read Mr. Popper's Penguins? We just picked it up from the library. Looks good. Happy Valentine's Day :o)


How funny! I just bought a copy of A Wrinkle in Time for Matt for Valentine's Day.
