Candy, Candy, Candy

I LOVE candy! I have always wanted to make some of my own but never seem to have the time. But, then I read this lovely blog post and thought "I could do that!" So on Saturday my kiddo and I went to Michael's and bought candy kits, molds, and candy melts. Then we went to the Dollar Store and found the old fashioned peppermint sticks and the marshmallow poles. All I did was melt the candy melts in the microwave in a glass shot glass (my DH thought that was hilarious) then dipped the stick in it and rolled in the sprinkles. For the marshmallows all I did was cut in half and put in a pretty package. I think they will make perfect teacher gifts! I had so much fun with the packaging! You know how I love making special packages.

A Give-Away

This is just a peek at what I'm giving away! I want it to be a surprise. But I promise you will like it! All you have to do is comment on this post or any I make in the next week. I will anounce a winner Friday December 18th. If you want I would love to know your favorite Holiday movie. Mine is White Christmas. Its been my favorite since I was little.
Also I have a really good deal going on in my shop. I have a lot of green faux feather trees and they are just taking up too much room in my studio. I'm selling them 2 for $12.00.

First of all I want to say a huge thank you to everyone who bought a kit or other goodies from me. I was overwhelmed at the response my kits got. I'm so glad you loved them. All of the purchased ones have been shipped. I only have a few left.
After all that shipping I took the time to add a little winter cheer to our home and took some photos to share with you. I just wish we would get some snow! It hardly ever snows here and I really love snow!
I will be having a blog give away soon so stay tuned. Also I will be closing shop for the holidays at the end of next week. I will re-open in January after I have thoroughly cleaned out my studio. I will be listing some REALLY good deals after that. My studio(and under my bed, closets, cabinets, store room) is just really too full of art and craft stuff. I'm only going to keep what I love and sell the rest in my shop. Don't forget about the give-away. I'm feeling super generous!

Winter Woodland Kit

Well I couldn't tease you too long! Here is my Joli Paquet kit for this year. It will be available Thursday. I also have a few kits from last year in my shop now. The price has been reduced. Also I have lowered a few prices on some Holiday items. The other Joli Paquet Girls kits are available to view today and tomorrow. They are super cute! Don't forget Joli Paquet has a Flickr group! We would LOVE to see your creations. I just want to say a big thank you to everyone who supports the Joli Paquet blog. We LOVE it when you pass on the info about us, leave comments, and share your pictures on Flickr.
