Coasters make the table grow fonder.

These quirky coasters are a perfect cast of characters for the month of February. 

There's Lincoln (who looks more Amish than presidential), Washington, sleepy or stoned Punxsutawney Phil, and a Valentine's Day heart!

These guys were cut out craft-day afternoon filled with wine and no regrets.

We added a pop of color to the back with some more cardstock. 

Mod Podge-will you be our Valentine?

Happy February!

Ain't no thang but a chicken wing!

We don't really follow sports...shocking...but we'll use any excuse to cook up some good dude food!
For this year's game were serving up these deliciously easy baked wings!

This recipe is the perfect crispy base for your favorite wings! 

You'll need...
-Baking Powder 
-Ranch seasoning or salt! 
-Oil Spray 

  • Preheat oven to 250F. 
  • In a zip-top bag throw in your wings, a couple of tbs of baking powder and seasoning (enough to coat your wings) and shake shake shake!! 
  • Place wings on a sprayed baking sheet and pop into the low temp oven on the bottom rack...this melts the fat before baking at a higher temp. Bake for 30 min.
  • Move wings to middle rack then crank up the heat to 425F!  
  • Bake for about 40 min, check them occasionally and rotate the pan half way through. 
  • Add your favorite wing sauce or enjoy them as is!  

Finger lickin' good! 

Goooooooo team!! ...or something like that.

Minty fresh!

January is stressful...there's resolution pressure, everyones sick, actual winter weather begins...no holidays to look forward to.  

Take a moment to relax with some fresh mint tea. 

It could not be easier.  Place a couple of sprigs of mint inside your cup, then pour in boiled water and steep!  Sugar/honey optional.

Mint helps with stress relief, nausea, stomach pain, cough suppression, cold/flu prevention...

Relax, take it eeeeeasy!
