~ Cosmo Cricket Candy Tin & sweet treats


{before & after}

I promised something crafty this weekend.  Here is the first of two projects I planned to do today–a decorated repurposed former waffle/pancake mix tin.  I had a lot of Cosmo Cricket Haunted line, so I thought I would use it in this easy craft.  I plan to fill the tin with candy and send it with my hubby to his office.

I’m also taking this lazy Sunday to make some sweet treats — here is a batch of chocolate-covered strawberries waiting to harden.  I also have an acorn squash cobbler baking in the oven.  I couldn’t find any canned pumpkin (which is what the cobbler called for) so I roasted several acorn squash and substitued in the recipe.  On second thought, why didn’t I just roast some pumpkin?  It isn’t like I didn’t have several of them in my kitchen.  (doh!)  Hmmmm…it is smelling pretty good in the kitchen but the proof will be in the tasting.  More to follow on the cobbler…

I’m so inspired from our colonial farm market visit yesterday that I plan to make pork chops, roasted potatoes with garlic and asparagus.  This should make a great meal topped off with the acorn squash cobber.  What do you think?

Stuff:  patterned paper, blackboard shapes, stickers – Cosmo Cricket; ink and ribbon – Stampin’ Up!
