Halloween Treats for School

Here is what my daughter is taking to school on Friday.  The Halloween party & parade has been postponed due to Hurricane Sandy!

Inside is an eyeball on a fork lollipop, vampire teeth, spider & bug rings and a magnet.  100% made by my daughter.  We designed the bag together and during the days off from school she made each and every one of these with no help!!!  How liberating!  for both me and my sweetie!!!  so proud of her.

A gift of thanks!

Recently had a club come to an end, this was their little “Thank You” gift.  So much fun to decorate chocolate.


My really good Nikon camera had to go into the shop.  The auto focus went wonky!  as you can see in the picture its not as crystal clear as I normally take pics.  The big bummer is that it could be as much as 4 week s to get it back… GASP!!!!  I am fussing with an point and shoot.  It’s been so long since I used one I am having a really hard time.  iPhone pictures may come to the rescue while i’m waiting for my favorite camera to return!  I can’t even take good pics of the dogs or kids.  I know this is going to be a few long weeks!!

Stamps: It’s A Wrap Occasions
Paper: Wild Wasabi, Peach Parfait, Just add Cake
Ink: Espresso, peach parfait
Accessories: Triple Flower punch, scallop border punch,

YUM! Chocolate!

The best part of Valentine’s Day is wrapping the chocolate.  OH MY!  I just love everyones reaction when you hand them a little treat all “cute-ied” up for Valentines Day.

I made 10 of these for the swim coaches.  These are from my Valentine’s Treat class.  The coaches got the exact same thing but there was an early espresso cut out Cupid (from the P.S. I Love you set) on the front instead of “Love you”.   Of course they were very well received.  Forgot to take the picture of the cute tin with all of them  ready to give out!

Stamps: P.S. I Love You, Its a wrap
Paper: whisper white, twitter pated, blushing bride
Ink: blushing bride
Accessories: top note die, blushing bride ribbon, avery labels, scallop and circle punches, and of course chocolate!!!
