Happy to share that isewcute on etsy had an item featured in the etsy finds email entitled 'Orange You a Tease' on August 23rd!

This is my harvest love glitter ring. I handcast each heart from resin & a mix of various orange glitters & then mount them to an adjustable silver plated ring, so it fits most. It's avalable all through the fall season from 'back to school' to Halloween & right on through Thanksgiving. It's a great way to add a little sparkle to your Fall wardrobe fashion style. It also makes a great gift for someone with a fall birthday or anniversary!

I'm so tickled to share that this piece has also been featured on 'Glitter and Nails'... a fun place to check out the latest nail art beauty trends in France!

I'm starting to craft for the long winter months ahead, so if you'd like to peek at what I'm up to, please become a fan on facebook!

Here are a couple more photos of the harvest orange ring to show how much this piece sparkles! I love it!

Stay Sparkly!

Easy Peasy Recipe - Ohio Buckeyes - Peanut Butter Balls Dipped in Chocolate... oh yeah baby!!!

The other day I made buckeyes with my boy. Buckeyes are essentially peanut butter balls dipped in a chocolate coating & they're so fun & easy to make, I thought I'd share this recipe with you. This confection gets its name from its resemblance to the nut from the buckeye tree. See here.

Peanut Butter Balls:

1 1/2 C. Peanut Butter - smooth
1/2 C. butter
1 lb. confectioners sugar (powdered sugar)
1 Tbsp. Vanilla

Soften the butter & add peanut butter. Mix in vanilla & then add the sugar. If dough does not easily roll into balls, then add a bit more peanut butter. Roll into balls 1 - 1.5" in size.

Chocolate Coating:

1/2 bar of parrafin wax
1 12 oz. package of chocolate chips...either milk chocolate or semi sweet chips...your preference.

Melt together in double boiler.

Use a toothpick to dip the peanut butter balls into the chocolate coating & leave the top uncovered to resemble a buckeye.


I'll be sharing this over at as well in their cooking/dessert section, so be sure & check craftster out for more fab food & craft ideas!
