Candy gift project

Hi again!  Just thought I'd share a little project my daughter and I did to celebrate her one year anniversary as a full-time journalist.  We used stamp set B1309 "Fun Times."  I thank Lisa Stenz for posting her pretty version and then crediting Karen Werner with the tutorial.  I had to edit their measurements to fit the Hershey candy bar that we used.  I didn't take a picture of another slider I made - the GIANT Hershey bar - yup!

Turned out nice, didn't they?  I'll be posting a couple of other projects I planned for my 2nd crop as a vendor but I'll post those later.  Until then, have a sweet day and God bless you!

One of my "pride and joy" ...

Here I am again - now it's been almost 3 months since I posted! I've got to get with the program - ha,ha,ha!! Real quickly, the majority of my time is occupied by my family. As most of you know I have 8 children, 3 of which are college or older age. My oldest, Jessica, is a journalist (graduated Suma Cum Laude from UCF) with the Hometown News group. She works for the Indian River County edition so here in Melbourne you don't get to see all her stories (about 4-6 per week). However every so often there's a story that overlaps the local interest of counties and her story will show up in our Brevard Edition. Well, today there's one about the Space Coast Ballet company which is her's. It may be out this week or next so pick up your free copy, unless it's already delivered to you, or read it online now by clicking on the title here below (here's the opening paragraph) - enjoy!
