We had an activity last month for those that wanted to make these candy dishes. I made one for my husband to use on his desk at work. We spray painted the terra cotta flower pot (base of snowman) and the saucer (hat) with spray paint. While they dried we painted the wooden knob for the hat and the face on frosted glass bowl. I think they bought clear glass bowls and they sprayed them with a frosted finish. Once everything was dry we glued the knob on the saucer. We glued the face to the flower pot base and attached a ribbon. I brought mine home and added some dazzling diamonds glitter to the rim of the hat and I used some Stampin' Up! buttons and rhinestones to jazz him up a little.
I put some of the peppermint butter mints in it for him to take to work but I also sent a bag of M&Ms. He told me the candy went a lot faster when it was the M&Ms.
I found this gem of an idea on Pinterest and thought it would be a perfect little thank you for all of the teachers and leaders that work with the kids in Primary at church. I included Scout leaders and Activity Day Leaders, which meant that I needed 36. I set out on a hunt for these cute, little 4 oz. jars. A couple of months ago I saw a lot of them but now it was hard to find it. After several unsuccessful trips, I ended up going 30 minutes away to another store that showed they had enough cases in stock. Super easy to make and well received.
For 8 jars, you will need:
1 pkg. (8 oz.) cream cheese, softened
10 pkgs. (2 oz. ea.) caramel dipping sauce
2 Skor bars or a bag of Heath toffee bits
8 (1/2C or 4 oz.) Mason or Ball jars
Mix the cream cheese with 2 of the dips. Divide it between the 8 jars. Clean the rim after it you smoosh it down and smooth it. Spread 1 pkg. of the caramel dip on the cream cheese layer in each jar. Top with crushed S…
I hear this is popular to do again. I was trying to think when it was that it was "in" and I'm guessing it was 6 years ago. Like fashion, techniques come full circle with slight changes. The change this round is using the white pen to add dots. Super easy to do with a different look that pops.

You aren't going to believe, it, but my Christmas card I made for this swap won a prize. Thanks to Hunter who liked it, I ended up getting a package of Snow Festival Designer Printed Tags. I realize I should use them for cards or packages, but I'm thinking I want to use them as little notes throughout the month thanking people for what they've done/do. Over the past year, I notice I have gotten better about recognizing things but I don't always take that time to acknowledge. I'll carry these with me and I'll always have something to write on and I can pass it to them as I go about my day but still be able to say "Well done!", "Congratulations", "Thanks", etc.
