Have a little project up today at the Silhouette blog. Took a triangle box and cut it out of Cosmo Cricket woodgrain paper (second only to polka dot when it comes to my fav pattern) to make it look like a tree. Branches and a hole for an owl complete the look.
Did you know you can buy Peep Owls this time of year? Found them at my local grocery store. I might need to snap up a few boxes and hide them from myself so I can make these little logs as quick gifts. I'm getting ideas for more variations. Goes well with the Wise Owl PTI set. Dark Chocolate Ink and Spring Moss ribbon used on this project as well.
I'm a Peeps fan. If it has sugar in it, I usually am. For those of you who aren't, you probably don't know that people have Peep preferences. Like I prefer mine to be stale. As in sitting open on top of the fridge for a week stale. A lot of people do. Makes them chewy. Notice in my project I left the hole open so the Peeps could achieve maximum staleness before they are given to the recipient. That my friends, is thoughtful gift giving.
Chocolate covered Peeps are something I have yet to try, but again, covered in chocolate, I'd try just about anything. Rita's Italian Peep Ice (can't get a direct link, but the Just Born website said they have it) might be where I draw the line, however. Not sure how good that will taste. But, I'm kinda tempted to give it a try. It's free on the first day of spring, so what is there to lose?
And holy crap. Newsflash...there's a Peep Store outside of DC? I think that calls for a trip down I-270 pronto. Hank, get your jacket. You and Mama are going on a road trip!
