It seems I’ve been working on these cute little jars for weeks. First I couldn’t figure out the conversion amount from the recipe…it called for a sleeve of graham crackers and I had bought graham cracker crumbs…thinking that would be faster, silly me.

So then I had to run out and buy some graham crackers in a box to measure how many cups of graham cracker crumbs equal a sleeve of graham crackers and shoot since I was out anyway why not get more snowman…you can never have too many snowman peeps! Then I ran out of the little baking hershey bars and M&Ms so another trip to the grocery for chocolate chips and shoot since I was out anyway, why not buy more snowman peeps as you can never….you’ve got the picture!

I did take a partially finished jar to my downline meeting to show them and tell them that I was still working on their Christmas present! So now if I hurry up I’ll have it done in time for a New Year’s present. At least there is not need for more trips to the store, and since snowman peeps are out of stock (I think I bought the whole stock of snowman peeps in the west valley) I think I should be able to get them done tomorrow.

So watch my blog for the photos. And if you are one of my downline, these little guys may just show up on your doorstep soon.

My original plan was to do enough of these for my downline and then have the extra Mason jars left over to make it again at Easter with bunny peeps and chicken peeps, but will the glut of snowman I purchased I just made them all into Snowman S’mores. BTW I still have a package of snowman peeps left…I think I’ll make up a batch of S’mores for myself as they look yummy.

I’ll have to see if any of my stamping students want to make these for Easter…that would be fun. At least I have the recipe committed to memory after all these snowmen!

——-UPDATE—–31 Dec 07——–

And here they are–I made 12 total and still have one lonely little package of snowman peeps left, along with about 10 pkgs of milk chocolate chips (hey they were on sale!) and cute little Hershey chocolate bars (not on sale but too cute to pass up), plus a box of graham crackers, and about 4 pounds of brown sugar. Can you say Easter Bunny S’Mores? I’m ready, well almost I’ll have to get more graham crackers. I think I’ll wait on those as my pantry shelfs can’t stand any more peep s’more supplies!  Oh golly, I just realized I don’t have any more mason jars.  Shoot I’ll have to make up a shopping list after all.  Hopefully, I’ll restrain myself and get only a reasonable amount of peeps for Easter.

After I gave away the first star I made using this pattern I just had to make another one. I’m taking it to my Pebble Creek Posse meeting tonight to show them how to do it. It is so much fun

Each month at the Pebble Creek Posse meeting we hold a Stamp Set Card swap.  The stamp set chosen for October was:  Season of Joy.

If you click on the photo you will see the creator of each.

Note:  some are missing the creators…I need to get sorted out with who did what since not all were marked.

We are planning our second scheduled Stamper’s Gathering. It is open to all members of the “Crazed Stampers” Yahoo group and also to members of the “Pebble Creek Posse.”

We would like to get a tentative count of those that would like to attend so those who like some advance notice to prepare for a card swap can get an idea of how many swaps to make.

We’ll provide more information as things get firmed up. We just wanted to send this out now so you can start thinking about what card you’d like to make for the swap which will part of this gathering.

We are going to do a Valentine card swap, have some munchies and share ideas through a show and tell. There will be a swap of a full card not a card front. You will not need to provide an envelop with your swap.

There may be other than SU demonstrators participating in the swap. They may use whatever stamp sets and materials they wish. However, for SU demonstrators, please use only SU materials, and current stamps ..that way we’ll have some samples we can share at their workshops/classes.

We’ll let you know how many swaps you need to do about 10 days prior to the gathering. There are 23 people on this mailing list, so if everyone came you’d need 23 cards. At our first meeting we had 13 participating in the swap, so that gives you a range for the number of swaps if you really want to get a head start.
