Today is the first day of Spring, and I wanted to have my porch ready…
I put away the heavy plaid quilts and pillows that kept us warm during the winter months, and
added the plants that had been in the house all winter…
So easy…lots of plants and an Easter egg wreath, then we’re all set for Spring!!
Molding chocolate into shapes makes great hostess gifts for Easter/Spring Celebrations or to put in Easter baskets for the kids!!
These are the materials you will need…pretty color chocolate melts from a craft store, but I did get dark chocolate from Trader Joe’s to add rich flavor, bowls to melt the chocolate in, plastic baggies, spoons to place chocolate in the baggies, decorative boxes, small cup cake liners for placing chocolates into the boxes and silicone chocolate molds…I chose flowers and butterflies, but they sell all types from flowers to lego shapes!!
First, melt the chocolates in small bowls, it took less then 60 seconds in the microwave, next either spoon chocolate into a baggie, cut a small hole in a corner. Pipe chocolate into molds…I started with the colors on top, then added dark chocolate on top, which will actually be the bottom when they come out of the molds. Make sure to let the chocolate set before adding another color, I put the molds into the freezer for about 10 minutes in between layers of colors. Now, it looks quite messy the way I did it, I think the chocolate was too warm, which made it watery. Next time I’ll wait for it to cool a little before I handle it!! Also, I might try to use a squeeze bottle instead of a baggie. However,
it came out pretty nice and is really quite easy to do and tasted scrumptious…you can’t go wrong with chocolate!
Remember in the 1960’s and 70’s…
you were either a hippie or
you were a mod…
I was somewhere in the middle!
In my opinion…Americans have always been split about different things through history, some big things, some small things…
Through it all we’ve always been able to voice our opinions, that’s part of our democracy,
and it’s still going
However, the past month we have all come together, to agree on one thing…
That is our support for Ukraine💙💛
There is a monster tearing apart Ukraine…the monster thought, because our country was torn about things, he could grab a country he wanted…not only our country, but the world has come together to support Ukraine…The people of Ukraine are strong and with most of the world is behind them, so I don’t think the monster will win🇺🇦
A prayer for Ukraine
We pray for the people of Ukraine,
for all those suffering or afraid,
that we will comfort them and protect them.
We pray for world leaders,
for compassion, strength and wisdom to guide their choices.
We pray for the world
that in this moment of crisis,
we may reach out in solidarity
to our brothers and sisters in need.
May we walk in the loving energy of all creation
so that peace and justice
become a reality for the people of Ukraine
and for all the world.
