Thinking Spring...

Lots of colors are flying around here...soft pinks, magentas, moss green, chartreuse...Spring must be right around the corner...I'll put a bumblebee on anything, I tell 'ya! Isn't this bee tag suh-weeeeeeet? These tags and many more are headed for some shops...Am working on Easter stuff already. Sheesh! Wasn't it just Valentine's Day yesterday???
Anyway...here's something fun to do to jazz up your Easter Basket.
Take your favorite jumbo candy bar (I like Dove, Cadbury & Lindt), take off the outer wrapper, leaving the foil intact. Cut out two complementary decorative papers and wrap & tape them over the foil. Add ribbon, a velvet leaf...and perhaps an itty-bitty chickie, and voila! You've got a great looking candy bar which would make a swell hostess gift at Easter dinner or a special present for your children's basket. Of course, I have traced some glue pen over the patterned papers in a few areas and sprinkled a bit of non-glass glitter on top. Gives it a bit of sparkle! My biggest challenge is to NOT eat the chocolate before delivering it to a store!!! (Note: I haven't quite recovered from Halloween candy yet!)
It's a bit dreary outside here so I thought I'd brighten up the day with some colors...
