I'm running. Like a John Updike rabbit - from one deadline to the next.. All fun deadlines, but deadlines nonetheless!!
I just dropped off a piece of Project Reanimate art that will be exhibited at the Austin Bergstrom International Airport for a while, so I'm breathing a sigh of relief and hoping some of you are flying in the next little while. :) I think it goes up on Monday.
So this morning was a nice little break in the action.
I had my open house at Mandola's Market and it was amazing!! Thank you to all my new guests - I hope you come back next month.I busted out the Mini Catalog goodies, and tortured everyone who came with the fact that none of this stuff can be ordered by customers for an agonizing 16 days yet. :)
Everyone's favorite of course were the sweet treat cups.
I recreated a convention project by Carrie Cudney, who is at the top of my favorites list for people who demo for us. Everything she does is adorable.This one made people shriek and it's sooo simple. The new sweet treat cups, which exactly fit into a hole you punch with the 1.75" circle punch out of the stamped images that were designed to go with them in the Sweet Centers set. We stamped the Halloween image in Lovely Lilac, cut it out and punched the center.
We filled our cups with Juicy Pear Jelly Bellies (which EXACTLY match Old Olive Cardstock, heh heh).
The cups have adhesive on the ring that holds them into the card, so we stuck that to a black piece.
On the back, I used Sticky Strip to hold a lollipop stick onto the black cardstock. I got these in the cake decorating section.
Then we added a piece of Cast-A-Spell DSP to cover that up and finished it with Old Olive Ribbon.The find of the week was these Lollipop bags we put them in.
They come with white satin ribbon already attached - just put your treat in, tie it, shazam - fun gift!
To hold my Blackberry & Orange Sherbet Jelly Bellies for the tables, I made a fortune teller (which one of my guests called a Cootie Catcher - hilarious!) out of 12x12 DSP. Fun and easy candy dish! Plus it folds flat for transport!
How cool is it that there's a black jellybean that is NOT licorice? Pretty darn cool.
Monday, I will announce this week's MMLM winner, AND I will show you the Christmas project we made.
Why not tomorrow?
