Green M&M's


My mom is pretty clever. After Christmas she buys the holiday M&M's on clearance. She'll go through the bags and divide them. The red and white ones she puts out for Valentines and the green ones come out for St. Patty's Day. Smart, huh?

I have 3 hats (nearly) finished for the children's home. I just need to find that dang yarn needle (actually the whole bag, as that's what I've misplaced - I keep them all in a small pouch I made a few years ago. Arg) so I can finish the 3rd. I hope to get another done on time to send them off to my friend Momma B. I'll try to get a picture tomorrow. I'm quite pleased with them myself.

Ok, I admit I have done that in the past when I left over Christmas M&M's!

I never thought of doing that before.

Hope you find the yarn needle.

Your mother is brilliant.

Cassie said...

Your mom is a genius! Have you seen how much they are charging for the special bag of just green m&m's?

Momma B said...

Good idea Marcia's mommy!

And, THANKS SO MUCH for the hat making!!!

Snot Head said...

Hm, that is genius! Thanks for the hat help, from me, too!

Good luck finding your stuff!

I saved out the green m&ms for a February Frog-Themed Birthday party. After sewing froggie bean bags for all the guests, a homemade froggie cake, and lots of other clever and time-consuming froggie-themed party stuff, my frog lover's favorite part about the party was the bowl of green m&ms. Go figure!
