Happy New Year from Marina

Happy New Year!

With that said, I wonder if your social network is a buzz with New Year’s resolutions as mine is? Did you make a resolution this year?

When I see my friends making choices to “lead a more balanced life” or “exercise more”, I wonder how they plan on being successful in these goals. How could you break these common resolutions down into day-to-day activities that are attainable?

Peanut Butter Snowballs

These are one of my must haves at Christmas. They are easy to make. The trickiest part is dipping them in chocolate. Don't worry about making them look smooth. They actually look best if the chocolate is uneven. Enjoy

Kids Craft Ideas


These are a great craft idea for kids! They make the perfect little party favor, teacher gift, or decoration!

Simply roll a pipe cleaner around a pen or your finger and then form it into a tree shape. Poke the pipe cleaner through the top of the Ferrero Rocher's or any other treat you want to use.  Decorate with little stars or sequins (using craft glue).
