Be Mine

Today I remembered a photo of little packets of wax paper sewn together with candy inside.  I had wax paper and some peanut butter M & M's so it was ON!  I took a handful of candy into my craft room and started sewing.  I probably do not even need to tell you that I am NOT a seamstress and I do NOT know my way around a sewing machine. However, I can thread it and make some simple stitches.  These little Valentine pillows would be so sweet to drop into the kids lunch on Monday as a sweet surprise!  The big heart is a bit low on candy because I kept dropping them on the floor.  Not to worry, my handy vacuum cleaner, Cosmo, was right there to help me out.

As soon as Cosmo realized that I had candy in my pocket, I became the object of his extreme affection.  These photos are on the poor side because a. a furry little muscle man with big sad eyes, wants to eat the candy b. no natural light today and c. a furry little muscle man with big sad eyes, wants to eat the candy.  I had to crop his wet schnoz out of these photos.  Cosmo is the king of LOVE and he has so much to share!

 Disclosure:  This is NOT an original idea.  I saw little wax paper pillows somewhere recently but I can't remember where.  I *think* it was in a magazine.  If anyone knows, please let me know so I can credit.  I'm joining a couple parties, I'd love for you to check out everyone's goodies over there on the right under parties.
