I went to Walgreens yesterday to pick up some Christmas candy. Yes, they have Christmas candy out already - at least some places. I know that because when I went to pick up some candy for the trick-or-treaters - I saw the display. It was actually on sale... so my treaters got Christmas candy. I don't think they minded.
Anyway - I needed candy for this project. Our church ladies group is focusing on inexpensive home-made gifts this month as we gear up for the holidays. I needed a project for the "sample" table. I wanted to demonstrate that you can recycle your containers such as altoid tins, Starbucks bottles, and, in this case, a Prima Flower container. I just love these containers. You can also find these containers at Emmas Paperie.
I used papers and stickers from Flair's Merry Little Christmas collection. The reindeer was made with the Cricut Essentials Christmas cartridge. It goes perfectly with the reindeer in the papers. And guess what candy is inside the tin.... yeppers - Candy Cane Kisses. And let me tell you - these are divine!
And I have some other news. I'm back to painting. Yes, painting. From the encouragement of others, I have set aside paper and glue time to get back to my first love, paint and brushes. I will have a French Quarter painting listed on ebay soon. Do you want a peek?
I'm also working on getting some prints set up and I'll post the link to the store once that is all set up. That's all for today. Thanks for stopping by and happy crafting!
