You know the one's..... 100 Grand, Snicker, Air Head, Nerds, Sugar Daddy and Almond JOY!
This is what I came up with!
Now mind you, I work in a GROCERY STORE....so strolling down aisle 8 made creating this poster was easy for me!
I created these posters for my work, but have been known to but one together for my sweetie.
Last year I did not create a new one AND holy COW..... I had a few angry & ungrateful AND unsympathetic (they did not care I could only do SO much!) customer's!
Candy bars or items you will need:
Dr Pepper (small can)
Bit O' Honey
MY cutie pie assistant, Nichole......(props to you, Nicky... You rock!) was the one who put this together for me, while I was smooching w/Kevy at the Anniversary Inn in Logan Utah for our anniversary. She started with some pink paper hearts she taped on the poster board. We covered up the words we didn't need with duct tape and then she hot glued them on to a poster board. After hot gluing them I found that I had to reinforce them over the top with some tape!
I meant to tape over the "D" on the "Dove" bar with a "L" but got too excited to leave for my "HONEYMOON" I forgot. I think "DOVE" you I kinda cute, so what ever you think looks good,
I wanted to use some different treats for this poster, Such a EVERY guys Fav!... DR PEPPER & instead of soooo many sweets, I used Gold fish cracker, you could use Swedish fish or gummy fish if you want, MAKE this poster you own!
ALSO have you tried that Bliss bar??? SERIOUSLY friends.... it is BLISS! So smooth AND good. I love it.
How many of you think we could make like a "trillion" dollars for that "candy bar poster biz" if we could create some really cool candy bar names?
I think we need a "LOVE" bar for sure!.... OR a "just Nuts" bar... ok, a......
"SEXY" bar!!! You know you want one!
How about a "Gorgeous" bar?....a "passion" bar...a "cuddle" bar...OH SNAP... how about a....
"Struck it RICH" bar....Or a "lucky" bar...(isn't that a cigarette brand?)...
hey speaking of which...how about a "SMOKIN HOT" bar.
ANY way....what about you guys...Thought of a good name for the perfect "LOVE" candy?"
SPILL IT!......Let me know, pretty please.
AND because, I'm weird that way!
Some "cupid poop" ideas would be:
Tiny cinnamon hearts
pink & white & red M&MS
Pink, white & red Jelly beans
Mini gummy hearts
Just fill up a small cello bag with your choice of "poop", tie with a ribbon & tag...and VOILA...
a for sure "conversation" starter!!
REMEMBER: LEFT click on image to get the right size to read!
No magnifying glasses needed here!
P.S. when you give this gift....LEAVE my name out of it!!
BUT.... I be warned.....I tweaked & changed a couple of things!
1st of all, SOME complained about the 5 Golden rings.......Just cause they were FUNONION rings & not REAL golden rings!
Not really, they wanted another Idea for #5, that wouldn't leave their breath ahhhh....
ahh not so fresh!
So I change the Funonions to 5 peachy rings!!! Hope that makes a few of you a bit happier.
ALSO I put #2 tag on twice, not on purpose...but I just wanted to change one word.
If you don't want to "SMOOCH" on the back row...just use the first #2 tag.
I also changed #7. STRAWBERRIES are somewhere between ....ridiculous & OUTRAGEOUS right now & to buy some would be too pricey.
SOOOO I changed it to 7 cups of cocoa plus a sturdy mug ( hey...I needed it to rhyme with HUG!).
IF I were to gift this, I would send a cute cello bag with 7 single serving packages of Cocoa & included a insulated mug. OR if for your a "Mocha, Lotta, drinka, caffeine" person, a gift card to Starbucks, with one of their cool mugs, would work. JUST pop in a cello bag, tie with a ribbon & tag & deliver.
AS ALWAY....REMEMBER......JUST LEFT click(on the tag page) to get the RIGHT size of picture to view!
SOOOOOO... you don't have to get your magnifying glasses out!
HOPE this helps & gets you lots of hugs & KISSES on Valentines day!

That is my oh so cute grandson Gavin & his Papa working on the cars for the pinewood derby set to race this Friday. The boys & papa have a plan......Papa gets to relive his dreams of winning a pinewood derby AND the boys get to take the credit for the awesome cars PAPA made!!SIDE
NOTE: I just noticed "KOOJOO" laying on the rug in this first picture!! That really ia my "grandpuppy" Zoe...She really is a lovey dovey dog & has no "koojo" in her...you know..."koojo"?...the killer CRAZY dog from the Stephen King novel....NO? Nothing? FUNNY Story Zoe Zoe is 1/2 in love with Papa(Kevy) & my son in law Cory!....
I signed up for 3 Valentines charms spots in the swaps @ 2peas. One was the
"Hard" valentines, meaning any textile EXCEPT fabric or paper, the other 1 was 2 spots on the Fiber charms. These first pictures are of my "mini...tiny.....teeny picture frame. It was made out of red "pleather" & a tiny heart button. I stitched around the inside with white thread. And put a back piece on & stitched it closed with clear thread. I left an opening at the top, so you can slide in a TEENY TINY
This next picture is of my Cupcakes for the "Hard" valentines swap. I just molded a cupcake out of some polymer clay & baked as directed & added a tag (made out of good old fashioned shrinky dink stuff!)...that is super hard to read.....BUT it says:
These next pictures are what the "Sisterhood of the traveling paints" made for our Feb. craft.
This last craft is just a little something I threw together! I was forced to "scrape book" my own plain...ugly ......clipboard!! I had been after shilo @ Toadly crafty to do it for me...but she was just toooooooooo busy! So I did it myself.......not bad if I do say so myself!
One side has chalk board paint & the other side has a magnetic board.
SO Toady......I don't need your mad scrape book skills.....I got a few of my own!!!

I love, LOVE, LOVE Charms bracelets! Something about those tiny little thing's just thrill's me to death!!
My daughter Shilo has got me HOOKED on the swap site twopeas here @ I have since participated in several CHARM swaps. The first one was a Halloween one, the next one was a State charm swap, then a Victorian Christmas charm swap. ALL which I loved! This next one is 2 Valentine swaps. One a fiber charm, the other just a bead or other media Valentine. The next one is a is Fruit swap. That's the first pictures you see. It is my Cherry charm. I used 2 SMALL wood beads. Star painted them red for me. I then wired red seed beads through the top & bottom 8-9 times. Added the green seed beads for the stems & 1 leaf. I think they are soooo cute, I am going to make a set of CHERRY earrings for the Hostess & myself !
This one is for the same fruit swap. It is my take on a watermelon. I just used a SMALL washer & wrapped first red wire a touch more then half way around to represent the sweet "meat" of the watermelon, adding 4-5 black beads for seeds on BOTH sides, every so often.. Then the lime green wire to represent the rind, around just a bit less then half way around. Ended with the silver wire to represent the lighter rind. added a jump ring to hang the claw on. SOOO cute huh?
I think I MIGHT have to make a pendent to match this for the Hostess & for me! This next one is for the fiber Valentine charm swap. I just made a small envelope out of paper for the pattern. Cut around the pattern on red felt & whip stitched around the edges with some quilting thread. Added a cute Valentine button & a SMALL piece of hook & eye Velcro. Had my Kevy write me a love note & a lobster hook. So fun!
I will have those out with in the next 2 weeks! I promise.
