Anyway, instead of birthday cake he wanted Peanut Butter Squares. He also wanted this last year and the year before that. In the kid's defense, they are wonderful! I remember my mother making them when I was his age.
Here is the easy, no-bake recipe.
1-1pound box of confectioners sugar, sifted
1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
2 sticks butter or margarine, melted
1-17 or 18 ounce jar of peanut butter
Press onto the bottom of a 9 X 13 inch baking dish.
1 stick of butter or margarine
1-12oz bag of semi-sweet chocolate chips
Pour and spread the chocolate mixture over the peanut butter mixture in the baking pan. Refrigerate for a few hours and cut into squares.

Do you have days that you want a small earring? These look large in the photo, but they are less then an inch long.

So, I decided to Pounce undiscovered shops to see what other black and white I could find.
I fell in love with these black and white fused glass earrings by Gilded Lily Glass.
And we all know someone who loves spooky things like this Mr Marrow keepsake box made by Shadow Hill Lane.

This month the Etsy Bloggers are posting about what they like and don’t like about Spring.
My likes are easy:
Leaves on the trees
Warmth of the sun
More hours of daylight
Kids outside playing
As for my dislikes, there is only really one:
Yes, I suffer quite badly from seasonal allergies. Last year I thought I would give it a go with over the counter medications only. After all, the commercials say how great they work. Well, maybe for some, but definitely not for me. I was miserable. I won’t be making the same mistake again this year.
What are your likes and dislikes about the arrival of Spring? I would love to hear.

I love chainmaille treasuries, not only because I make and sell chainmaille, but also because it lets people know that chainmaille is not just about knights and armor.
Thanks to Avionmaille for including me in this beautiful collection.

She has these cute polymer clay stud earrings in her shop and is offering free shipping. That can't be beat.
You will also find a great selection of handbags by her Uncle Naz. Cindy's purse, shown below, is just one of the many that Nora has to offer.
Right now Nora is offering $1.00 purchases as a way to celebrate her 100th blog post. What a great time to visit her shop and make a purchase.

For those of you living in areas that observe Daylight Savings Time, don't forget to set your clocks ahead 1 hour at 2:00 AM tomorrow morning (or before bed tonight).
It should be sheer torture getting the teenagers out of bed for church tomorrow morning.

I came across a new online site for selling handmade called Artistry Arts. They allow only the selling of handmade items and supplies used to sell handmade items.
I was fortunate enough to be among the first to sign up and therefore qualified for a 6 month free membership. This allowed me to start listing and set up my my store without having to pay a penny.
For those who still wish to sell it is only $5 per month to start selling and that price is guaranteed to never go up. You can list as many things as you want and choose how many days you want to list for - 30, 45, 90 or 120. You can also have your listing automatically renew 1 or 2 times.
I think that my favorite feature is the payment options that you can choose from. You can require your buyer to pay instantly before the item is removed from your shop or you can choose to invoice them for their purchase.
The front page also features different items on a rotating basis so that every time you refresh you will see new items that are chosen randomly. What a thrill it is to see some of my items on the front page at any given moment.
Some other features are:
· Paypal Cart Checkout
· Ability to Leave and Receive Feedback
· Sell Similar Option
· Create and Send Invoices
· And more.
This site was only started about 1 month ago by Sharon and John, also known as Mom and Pop. They are constantly upgrading the site and are very good about responding to user recommendations.
