Love Bug Oreo Truffles – coated in white chocolate and decorated with googly eyes, jumbo hearts, candy sunglasses, bows, and sprinkles. SO cute and perfect for Valentine’s Day!
Let’s talk about Michael’s for a moment, shall we?? Can you tell from my tone this is not going to be good? Okay, hear me out. I LOVE Michael’s. Every time I walk in there I’m like a kid in a candy store, and they always ALWAYS have something new! I love their ginormous selection of all things artsy craftsy, I love their dollar bins, I love their home decor, and I especially love their fabulous holiday stash.
But tell me – WHY in the world does it seem like every time I go in there, there is approximately one person working the entire store? God forbid you have a question about something or (gasp!) a return…..it will take you 15-20 minutes just to get up to the register! Which is annoying anytime, but especially when you have kids with you and/or you’re in a giant hurry.
Hmmmmm…..maybe that’s the problem. I always have kids with me, and we’re always in a giant hurry! (I know I’m not the only one!?) Well, either way, I decided recently that I needed a trip to Michael’s that was all on my own, no kids allowed. And let me tell you – it was amazing!!! I was still in a hurry – that’s the way I roll – but without the kids, the hurry didn’t even bother me! I still had plenty of time to find everything I was looking for and then some, which is always the sign of a successful trip…..right?
Some of my favorite finds from that trip went into making these funny little guys. The pink, red & white sprinkles, the jumbo candy hearts, the sunglasses and bows……!? OMG they are ridiculous, but SO cute! So – lessons learned – hit up Michael’s without kids, late at night, when I’d rather be snuggled up on my couch. It will be worth it!
