First, I’m not a red velvet fan but these Red Velvet Sandwich cookies…so good!

And hearts don’t have to just be for Valentine’s Day.  You can make this easy straw craft with your kids any time.

Here is what else I am loving around the web:

Carmen has a beer cocktail that ladies will love.  I wish Carmen was my neighbor.

A little real talk from Amy.  Boom.

Melanie has a great post on abstract artists she loves.  And I love her.
