We also had some awesome suggestions and good questions from our readers!
Margo suggested these would work great for bridal showers!
I usually use a store bought cupcake mix and make buttercream icing. Buttercream tastes so good and goes on nice and smooth. It’s also super easy to make! TIP: You don’t have to have a piping bag to pipe icing. You can use a plastic “sandwich” bag and cut one of the corners off and pipe the icing through the hole!
Lynsey suggested the heart crayons would even work as a decoration! Put them in a pretty bowl on the coffee table or as a centerpiece on the kitchen table for Valentine’s Day!
Erin H suggested these crayons would be a great idea for stocking stuffers or kids parties!
Joli mentioned she bought Lego silicone molds for her boys! (those crayons would looks so cool! I’d love to see pictures!)
I didn’t notice any smell coming from the crayons when they melted in the oven. If you have anyone in the house that is super sensitive to smells you might want to turn on the fan just in case. I would not recommend reusing the molds for food once the crayons have been in them. Tiny bits of wax do get left behind when you pull the crayons out of the molds.
Q: Wow the baking tray is gorgeous! Where can I find that?
The bird tray in the giveaway is from Target! And, I just found out that Target also has heart silicone molds in there $1 section! The metal heart tray came from Michael’s Craft Store.
Judith suggested these hearts would work great as scrapbook embellishments!
Day 7 – Heart Tree
Q: Is your name pronounced “el?” I have a dd named Ellie, and she was wondering, but I told her it was probably different but I would ask!
It’s been pronounced both ways – the correct way to say it would be “El” but most people say it “Ellie”. It’s actually a nickname that came from the last four letters in my real name, Danielle. People started calling me Elle in grade school and it stuck ever since!
I’m also super excited about this:
A HUGE congrats to these ladies – they are amazing and I love everything they do! I can’t wait for their online shop to open 🙂 I bet they’ll have lots of fun stuff!!
