I will say these bugs have a bigger purpose I'll be posting about in a few weeks, and hopefully their home will be a cute one. These bugs are so easy to make. Pretzels, red, and milk chocolate...(and white chocolate if you want to add eyes, which is not necessary).
*One thing I've learned (and maybe I'm the last one on earth), but I put any left over chocolate in a ziplock bag, or a blob on wax paper. Once it dries, I dump it back into the bag to reheat for another project.
OK....and before I get to my news....when I got home today.....my chihuahua, Peanut, had found a pack of matches I had next to a candle and chewed them up. They were all over the carpet, and near his favorite spot to bury things....couch cushions. He's still alive to tell the story, but I am disturbed that my dog is playing with matches now, he's only two after all....lesson learned.
....and last. I got a call from a producer of Good Morning, Texas who found a post about pinatas I popped up on the blog last May for my Week of Cinco de Mayo projects. I'm heading in Tuesday morning to do a segment on 'how to make a pinata' live, sometime between 9-10 am (pending interruptions by national news stations, I'm sure). I'm trying not to think about everything that goes with that, but I'm really excited to have this opportunity. I've been paper maching for two day's straight now to get all my pieces together. The ladybugs (I know...this is a stretch) are my back up if I need to fill any time, it'll make sense when I post the rest of this project....if all goes well, I'll post about the experience, and maybe even link up to a clip. If things fall apart, I'll be deleting this portion of the post and pretending like I never said this....ever. ;o)
