McGoo U: February 2017
The key to the heart is cookies.  CooKEYS?  Valentine's Day is all about celebrating love and relationships (or the lack of) and there are so many ways to do that through cookies.  Valentine cookies can be punny and funny, snarky and sarcastic, admiring or studious, and lets not forget romantic and flirty!  This month at McGoo U we are creating a romantic and antiqued esthetic in a simply gorgeous teal and gold palette.  You hold the cooKEY to my heart!
