Time for some hot chocolate? I think so! I recently ran across another cupcake company, Baked, in Brooklyn - if anyone has tried their cupcakes back there in New York City, I want a review! Anyway, they sell homemade marshmallows by the bag - vanilla, chocolate, and some other flavors including peppermint and even pumpkin! Wouldn't a homemade peppermint marshmallow floating in a mug of dark chocolate cocoa just complete your day?
All that's left is a beautiful card to send along with a hot chocolate care package. I stamped the Cocoa Bear (C1105) in Graphite Black ink onto watercolor paper. Wetting the area around the bear, but only down to his knees, you'll create a "sky". Paint some blue into the top of the sky, and some purple into the bottom of the sky - I used Twinkling H2O's Blue Ice for the top of the sky and Razzleberry along the horizon. Once dry, paint the scarf and mug in (I used some watercolor pencils). This gets mounted onto a Water notecard - with a shimmery Midnight Blue cardstock as a layer.
I thought today that I'd also share with you what it's like to live with a gymnast. Coop does a lot of gymnastics - and likes to get a little practice in here at home - so we have a "dome" in our kitchen. The dome is practice equipment for the pommel horse - you know, the event where the gymnast uses their hands to spin their body around in circles, with only their hands touching. Anyways, this is what typically happens as he's doing his assignments - a little reading, a little work on the dome, and then back to reading - check it out:
