Lollies - a little ART CANT HURT

Lollies - a little ART CANT HURT
a perfect rainy day thing to do! the colors make any day better! how to make LOLLIESyou will need: jolly ranchers, candy sticks, parchment paper, foil & a cookie sheet 1) lay a piece of foil on cookie sheet. cover foil with a piece of parchment paper.2) unwrap candies and place side by side on parchment paper in your choice of color & flavor combinations. use three candies together for extra large lollies, and only two candies together for regular lollies.3) heat candies in oven for about 5 minutes at 200 degrees. keep a close eye on the candies and take them out as soon as they've barely melted together. if you leave them in too long they will melt too much and you won't be able to put a stick into the lollie. alter the cook time accordingly.4) carefully take cookie sheet out of oven. immediately lay candy sticks into place on melted candies. slowly twirl in melted candy to coat the stick and so it will hold in the lollie. they're hot!

Lemonade Makin Mama: Express yourself in porcelain I have a super busy week planned, so I thought I'd get a jump on posting. I love it when I find an idea that I can easily copy replicate. Not so long ago, I found a photo on Pinterest that showed a Pride and Prejudice quote, written onto a white mug. I was so excited, I immediately created a bunch of them for each of my book club girls as Christmas gifts. Sadly, they didn't turn out very well and I'm not sure anyone was jumping up and down for joy about them. I knew there had to be a better way to make them.
