Free-for-all Friday: a little at a time

It all started with this sweater...

I bought it at my favorite consignment shop with the intention of felting it and using it to make very special Valentine's cards. The sweater, it turns out, is indestructible. So I made paper envelopes filled with surprises instead...

Got a whole lot of this all over myself and my dining room table...

Made this to snack on:

2 cups peanuts
2 T. Butter
2 T. Agave Nectar
Sea Salt
Pour melted butted and agave over peanuts and mix.
Spread on a baking sheet and roast at 350 for 5-10 minutes.
Sprinkle with sea salt & store in covered container so you
don't eat them all at once.

And it all started with this sweater:

Happy Friday!


  1. That is a powerful sweater, indeed! Indestructible and able to inspire goodies of the craft and food varieties? Don't let it get away!

  2. I don't think it will let me give it away. If you could feel it, you'd know why I want to!

  3. What a great Friday sweater! Full of creativity and love. A Valentine indeed.


  4. Is it made of Kryptonite??? Maybe you should never take it off! Love, the creativity; it inspires me to get my valentines out.

  5. maybe the sweater should be part of the monthly give the traveling pants...
