Happy Friday!!!

I just had to share a photo of one of our favorite snacks - we usually refer to them as "teeth" or "dentures" lol, but last time I went to make them, Pickle Pants pipes up and says, "Mom, I have an idea, let's make vampire teeth and use strawberry jam!" Great idea! Usually we make them with apples (macs), peanut butter and mini marshmallows. We did both on this particular day. I have to say that the peanut butter version is still my faavorite and they stick together better, but making them with jam will allow us to serve them at our next Halloween party with my witch's fingers (here) - I usually stay away from anything with nuts just in case. Pea butter (made with chick peas) or Sunflower butter may also work, though I haven't yet tried it. My boys love pea butter and jam sandwiches for school - a great alternative for those days when you are in a hurry!
A few weeks back when I made my Edward book mark to send to a friend for her ahem, 29th Birthday, I decided to also make an Emmett bookmark. I basically kept the design exactly the same and just changed up the character.
Just a quick post for today folks, hope you are having a great Friday. I should be back on Sunday with a card or something....
Shanna :)


  1. Your card is lovely, and those treats are a hoot!! With a fun mom like you, those kids probably look forward to nutritious snacks!

  2. Love the sentiment Shanna, and my kids would love this snack for sure. I will have to send you on the recipe I read about for Butterbeer cupcakes (for the Harry Potter fans in your house!)

  3. Goodness what a fun snack! great card too!

  4. Even though I love apples & peanut butter, I don't know if I could get over the gruesome look of these to actually eat them, but they definitely suit the party theme.

    Why re-invent the wheel every time. You have a great bookmark design, so good for you for just switching out the image. Great job!


Thanks for visiting! I love to hear what you think of my work! :)
