I decided to make some Halloween goodies afterall. Now that my sonny-boy is going to pre-school, I'm going to be creating some small tokens of appreciation for his teacher, aides, and the secretary up front.
As I have been cleaning out and organizing my craft room, I'm realizing that there are pros and cons to this:
1. I'm discovering older stamps and supplies.
2. I'm getting to know where everything is.
3. I won't be shopping any time soon.
4. It feels good to get rid of old stuff and even make a donation pile. (Maybe even a blog candy pile?).
1. I feel so guilty because I have tons of supplies.
2. I won't be shopping any time soon. :)
For my project, I got these Godiva chocolate bars which are on sale this week at the local Target. I planned to use my Twisted Sisters stamps from Amy's Sweet November line over at All That Scraps.
About a year ago, I was a Sweet November Gal and I was so ecstatic (still am)! I had to re-read my post back in September '10.
So I had to pay homage to these sets of stamps again because it was truly an honor being able to help showcase them. For my first 'candy wrapper,' I chose my fave of the group, Twisted Sister Oleander.
How funny that she looks similar yet different as the first time I colored her. She looks super sweet here, even shy (and she looked kinda sassy at the other post). Oh, but she looks so adorable with her tattered bow and her striped tights and her batty wings.
I used Bazzill and Neenah for the Cardstock; Reminisce for all the other paper embellies; House of 3 (Pink Paislee) for the twine; the buttons were from my stash.
Ah, I'll be showing you some more of the other ones I did. I think these TS are perfect for their gifts. They are mostly young women and these stamps capture their youth yet are also sophisticated.
Thanks for visiting!
