~I Miss You Mom~

My mom passed away 2 years ago today. I knew I loved her. After all...she was my mom. But I never knew how much I loved her until she was gone. Pretty sad.


                  If roses grow in heaven, Lord, pick a bunch for me;
     Place them in my mothers arms & tell her they're from me;

             Tell her that I love her, and when she turns to smile, 
            Place a kiss upon her cheek and hold her for awhile.
                 Remembering her is easy.... I do it everyday.              
        There's an ache within my heart that will never go away.
                      To Heaven and Back, Mom. I love you~

~February Already???~



December was a blur here at RoseCreekCottage. I swear I didn't sleep at all. I'm beginning to really understand how Santa feels. But then he DOES have elves. I'm still waiting for mine!

I was certain that January would not only bring new creative ideas, organization in the studio and in my life, and revigoration for all the things I love. It didn't. What it did bring was the necessity to catch up on much-needed rest and a bevy of doctor appointments I put off way too long! I did get some new migraine meds that although costing $28 a piece....actually work once I take two.  That being said....Rosie and I are back in the studio, coffee in hand.....filling Valentine's Day orders as quickly as possible without the help of elves. (REALLY now Santa....I know you don't need them quite yet......please please consider sending me even an over-the-hill one. I know he'd love it here. I have cookies. Lots of them!!)

On today's agenda is packing up these delicious Valentine's Day treats and sending them off to the grandbabies. Don't they look scrumptious?? Here's the recipe:



Valentine Delights

Ingredients:

5 ounces white almond bark or white chocolate chocolate chips
5 ounces red candy melts (I found them at Michael’s craft store)
1 teaspoon shortening
5 cups chex cereal
1 cup strawberry cake mix
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1/2 package valentines chocolate M&M’s

1. Start by dividing the chex mix into two bowls.  (2 1/2 cup in each)

2. In microwave safe dish, melt the 5 ounces white almond bark or white chocolate chips. Add 1/2 teaspoon shortening so that the almond bark will spread evenly.  Microwave 30 seconds at a time and be careful not to burn the almond bark.  Dump this in the first bowl of chex and mix evenly to coat all of the chex cereal.

3.  Melt the red candy melts next also checking and stirring the candy melts 30 seconds at a time.  Once this is melted, pour this over the second bowl of divided chex and mix until coated.

4.  In two gallon size ziplock bags, put 1/2 cup strawberry cake mix and 1/4 cup powdered sugar in each bag.  Dump each bowl of chex mix in each bag and shake until coated with the powdered sugar and strawberry powdered cake mix.

5. Add in Valentine M & M's. 

Rosie and I KNOW you'll love them, too.....but be careful: they're addictive~ xoxo

Almost December......




I can't believe it's almost December! I know I haven't posted in a while....our orders are piled to the ceiling...which is a good thing.   Rosie and I are working in the studio 12-14 hr days.   She loves it. I do, too. 

Today is Small Business Saturday.  We have 20% off on our website:  LIKE us on FB and Use code SBS20 at checkout today through midnite EST.  Don't miss out!  Santa's been shopping at RoseCreekCottage into the wee hours of the mornings. His elves are very impressed with all the goodies I create WITHOUT any 'Elf Help':  Just Me, Rosie and Katie...and and Jim who prints the labels and does the book keeping!  I told those elves I've been waiting for them to show up for years.  I can't wait any longer...so am working solo!  They apologized and said Santa keeps them very busy.....even in the 'off' season.  sigh.  I need to think about recruiting my own core of Elves for next year!

We added Personalized Christmas Ornaments this year. Take a peak. 

And you KNOW we always have beautifully, custom items for Mom, Grandma, Grandpa and Daddy.  Godmothers and Godfathers, too!   And don't forget your kids, daughters, sons, grand daughters, daughter-in-laws, mother-in-wals, your hubby, fiance, significant other, bff, sole sisters you run with, your true sisters, cousins, aunts, teachers, caretakers.....we have something for everyone! Look to see all the new goodies we've added~

And remember to check back on Cyber Monday for another (and our last of the year) Sale.

~Reasons You Gotta Love Fall~

Too many reasons to list of why you just GOTTA love fall...but one of my favorite: going to Patterson's Fruit Farm to purchase apples and cider. Just the smells of apple pies, fritters and hot apple cider make it worth the stop. Rosie and I stopped there yesterday and bought Gala apples....one of our favorite for baking,  making sauce or eating.  We hosted good friends Babs and Bob here last nite for dinner and served homemade Apple Crisp made from some of the apples for dessert....and I must say it was a hit....but we ate it all!



We have a little reprieve from work in the studio today.  It will most likely be the last Saturday we can get away from it like this....so it's a welcome pleasure for sure.   So.... a second Apple Crisp is in the oven. Amy and Tom along with Amy's sister and boyfriend are arriving for a lunch of Brats on the Grill.....and along with vanilla ice cream, this will be the perfect dessert.  Can you just smell it???!

Have a glorious Saturday....wherever you are in the world~ Carol and Rosie~
