The second months theme in the Craftster Hoopla Along was Summer! I found this awesome pattern of a turtle on Urban Threads. The fabric I found to stitch it on reminds me of being underwater.
I haven't posted any new food for such a long time cause I haven't really tried any new recipes. We had a family BBQ a few weeks ago when my aunt was in town to visit with my mom and I said I would bring a dessert. I had been wanting to try these bars out for a while and this gave me the perfect chance.
They are basically SUPER Rice Krispy treats! I love that they are no-bake since it's still so hot here in Arizona and they came together super fast. They were a hit with everyone who tried them too!
You will need:
1 Bag of White Chocolate Chips
1/4 Cup Creamy Peanut Butter
3 Cups of Rice Krispies
1 1/2 Cups Mini Marshmallows + More for Garnish
1/4 Cup Mini Chocolate Chips + More for Garnis
Foil lined and greased pan
In a bowl (be sure it's microwave safe) pour the whole bag of white chocolate chips in and microwave for one minute. Stir. Microwave in 30 second intervals until melted.
Stir in Peanut Butter
Pour over Rice Krispies and mix
Pour in the marshmallows and mix
By this time the mix should be cool enough to mix in the chocolate chips
Press into prepared pan then sprinkle with mini chips and marshmallows pressing lightly.
Cover pan and place in fridge until set 15-20 minutes.

We both also have a love for Harry Potter so I made these two pendants from some Harry Potter book page tags I had received in a previous swap. The first uses a flat backed glass marble and features the word "Patronus" and the second is in a bezel and features "Dumbledore"
I also made some hand stamped bird tags with a set of stamps I bought at Michaels.
These were my favorite things that I sent in that package and I hope they were loved by their new owner.
My partner in the Magic Yarn Ball Swap had wished for a prayer flag. She wanted one that would be able to be hung outside and not be damaged. One of the things she likes is Yoga so I chose to make that my theme. I chose to embroider a lotus bloom on the white fabric then whip stitch it to some matching pink and yellow stuff I had in my stash. Since she wanted to hang it outside I bought some plastic beads to sew on for the word Namaste.
I had never made a prayer flag before and I hope it was liked. Looking at it now I wish I had used different colors but too late for that!
This is the LEGO Mini Fig hoop I made in the Ongoing Wish Swap. I found the image from a free coloring page online, stitched him up, then glued on some real LEGO's that my son donated. Of course I really need to make another for my son to hang in his room!
