Monday Made It - February edition

I'm back! I haven't posted a Monday Made It since November.
 I meant to post in December and had time in January.
Here is what I've been up to...

#1 Homemade Tootsie Rolls

Not as good as the real thing, but they were fun and easy to make.
They, also, made some of my teammates happy.
If you try them, I recommend refrigerating before you eat them.

Of course, I used Tootsie Roll pops. 

#3 Snow Sign

I  had this great idea! I wanted a sign for my front yard to go with my 4 inflatable snowmen. I bought a piece of plywood, 2 cans of spray paint, a can of sealer, and some tinsel garland. Being from Kansas, but currently living in Texas, I thought it would be funny to do a little play on words. I spent hours tracing and cutting out the letters. I spray painted the wood white, taped the letters down, then spray painted the sign red. You can tell where the tape was, so I bought some white acrylic paint to touch up the letters. I just haven't had time to finish painting. Once I do, I am going to seal it, so it will be water-resistant. Then I plan to staple tinsel garland around the edges. Hopefully, it will be complete by next Christmas. Stay tuned!
