Friday Five

A weekly round-up of tidbits, tips, ideas, news articles, random cool things...

1. I stumbled on a one eyed version of these on a crafty blog the other day and you know I had to adapt them to make eggfaces. Line a cookie sheet with wax paper. Melt sugar free white chocolate in the microwave. Place a blob of white chocolate (the egg white) about the size of a quarter onto the wax paper. Place two yellow, sugar free chocolate covered peanuts into the blob (the egg yolks), add a half of a pecan (bacon.)

Place your eggfaces in the fridge to set about 20 minutes. Pop off wax paper. Nom. Store in airtight container. Look it's a family reunion...

2. Looking for a quick holiday gift idea? An Amazon Gift Cardpurchased through this "gift card" link scores a cool gift for your loved one and helps this blog continue doin' it's thang (a small % of commission) FYI Gift Cards are redeemable store-wide, they never expire and you can chose to send gift cards by e-mail, Facebook, print-at-home, or regular old mail with free one-day shipping. I love gift cards 'cause after all the dust of the holidays settle you can go shopping for that thing you hinted for but no one got you ;)

3. Some articles I read this week that were worth checking out:

4. It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas... I cleaned and have pulled a few things out of the garage and closet so now it looks like a bit like a bomb went off but I managed to decorate the mantle.

My Mum made me a beautiful knitted tree garland. I loved the leaves and turkey so much. I told her she should open an Etsy store. She wasn't feeling it... but I mean come on are these bunnies not the cutest thing ever?!

5. Stop by Sunday when another AWESOME Eggface Giveaway begins!!! What will it be?! Hint: You use them everyday (or should.) Oh and be sure to add your name to the hat for the current giveaway! (ends Sunday)
