Hi all!!! I hope you had a fabulous weekend! Mine was okay, I was sick starting Saturday and I am still not feeling really great. I had the craft fair on Saturday which went well, but I did not enjoy it since I was not feeling well. But, my goodies were a hit, for which I am thankful! So, in keeping with the fall theme for this week, today I am sharing some "pumpkin poop" and some neat test tube candy holders that I made for Kayla's school fundraiser coming up next weekend! I thought they would be fun and would definitely catch a kid's eye - I mean hey, it's candy, lol!!! So, I made about 50 of these and can honestly say I don't ever want to see another candy corn again! I used small cello bags, then added my topper on with staples underneath so you can't see them. Here is a close-up of the topper: I found this poem online and thought it was really cute so I decided to use it! I have no idea who authored it, but would give them credit if I did! I also saw these really cute test tube holders on Lisa Somerville's blog, and decided to give them a try because I thought she did a fabulous job on these! She has mad talent, and is super creative! They are really cute and I got the test tube at Michael's using my coupon so not a bad deal at all! These are also going to be in one of the baskets for our silent auction and I have already been told the ladies have been checking them out and want them so hopefully we will raise a lot of money this weekend! So there you have it - my contribution to the neighborhood dentist who is sure to have plenty of business after the kids eat these - they are sooooo sweet, yuk!! But hey, they are popular so I guess someone must like them - LOL! I will leave you with the recipe for these below! Don't forget to check out my post about the Fall Frenzy over at Coconuts - it is going to be a blast, you don't want to miss it! Until tomorrow!!!
