Halloween Spook-Tober Treats For Parties, Classroom Treats, Friend Gifts and Much More!

It's the BEST TIME OF THE YEAR and time to bring out all our new Halloween Designs! Our Halloween Spook-tober/Oct 31st candy bar wrappers were so much fun to make. To begin with we've made a rosette to hold the fun layers. The rosette comes fully assembled for you. All you do is adhere the other pieces with the message tag adhered with a foam dot. Soooooo easy to assemble and such a fun treat for family and friends, co-workers and more.

This is the first time we've put rosettes in our Etsy shop. After much practice we feel we have perfected the assembly. They are pretty fun to make. 

You can choose from the black candy bar wrap or the kraft candy bar wrap. We loved both so we just had to offer both wraps. (Sometimes we get carried away with our designing)  The 1.55 oz (regular size) Hershey candy bar is not included but you can get them for great prices from Sam's Club ( in store and online)  Costco and  They make a very affordable Halloween gift.

The side view shows you all the layers.  We ink the message tag. The purple flags come distressed. The kraft wrap is also inked on the edges for a fun aged look. I can just picture the look on your trick our treaters when you hand out a Full-Sized candy bar in this decorative holder!!!

If you're looking for a special Halloween treat for the grandkids......You just found it!!!

Are your kids going back to school soon? Ours are….the 15th of August to be exact…..which seems kind of early to me! But it occurred to me that I needed to get my teacher appreciation kits available to those of you with kids. This is our newest design and the teachers are going to love them!

We've designed three different tags for this candy bar wrap. All 3 are perfect for the teachers at your school.  One is perfect for the school office staff and even the schools district office, the PTA or teachers other than school teachers. (Think music teachers, sports coaches, speech, drama or any other kind of teachers)

This one is my favorite. Do you think teacher will like this one?

These candy bar wraps are so easy to assemble.  The apples are pre-assembled for you. All you do is tie the "To-From: tags around the stem. We can even personalize the tags for you. The perfect gift from the principal to their teachers for the beginning and end of the school year.

The kit contains everything you need except for 2 things.  You supply either double-sided tape or liquid craft glue which you would use to glue the wrap together on the right side and  the 1.55 oz, regular size Hershey Bars. You can get a box of 36 solid chocolate Hershey bar at Sam's Club  and Sam's online for $20.00. (55 cents a piece) Costco has 36 bars for $21.99. May also be available on  

The side view shows you how the apple pops off the candy bar wrap. It's applied with a sticky foam dot (in kit).  The white tag is glued onto the front of the green backer tag and then adhered to the wrap with sticky foam dots. Bottom line this is a super easy candy bar wrap to assemble!

Summer Drinks-Watermelon Lemonade & The Only Way To Cut a Watermelon!

It's time to eat watermelon……a lot of watermelon. You will never cut watermelon any other way after learning how we cut this one-PROMISE!!!  It makes it sooooo easy to eat, especially for the little ones. No messy wedges here. Now you just made eating watermelon fun to eat!!!

Cut a watermelon in half and then place the melon cut side down and slice 1" to 1.5" wide.  Then turn the water melon 90 degrees  and slice again. Super Simple but it makes the watermelon just all that more fun and easy to eat. Loved the look of it too. 

Now with the second half of your watermelon make a fabulously delicious Watermelon Drink or Slushy.  We made this for the Camping themed birthday party for my son-in-law. It was absolutely delicious and refreshing and simple to make!

Put a watermelon wedge in the drink along with a mint leaf for color. People will be impressed!

 HERE are some of the steps in the recipe.

Slice up your watermelon into chunks. You'll need 8 cups.

 Juice lemons to get 1 cup of lemon juice. 

 Blend up half the watermelon chunks with 1 cup of water. 
Then blend up the other half with another cup of water.

Strain the mixture through a fine mesh strainer and discard the pulp.

CLICK HERE for complete RECIPE-Super Easy and SUPER DELICIOUS!!!

The perfect drink for summer parties and celebrations! We used this drink for our camping themed birthday party-So many pieces, so much fun!

How to Make Summer Reading More Fun Plus Bookmarks for Boys and Girls

Summer is the perfect time for the kids to catch up on their reading. There's nothing like a summer afternoon and a good book.  When I was a kid I had health problems and I wasn't that active physically but what was active was my IMAGINATION!  I loved reading and I would let my imagination run wild in choosing what the characters in my books looked like and everything else in the book.  I would sit for literally hours reading my favorite books. It didn't matter if I was inside or outside. I also LOVED, LOVED, LOVED going to my public library. The children's section was in the basement and it was such a fabulous place.  To me the idea of the library letting me go in and come out with as many books as I wanted was so great!

When my children got old enough we would hang out at the library together and bring home armfuls of books. Now that my children have children of their own they are keeping up the tradition of visiting the library. The love of reading is such a great family tradition.

Now how do we make summer reading fun for the kids? How do we get them to read?

Take the kids to the library and help them to discover what type of books speak to them. It may be mysteries (which was what I loved) or  books about sports, dinosaurs, flowers, coding, flower arranging, jewelry making and other fun things.  Make the trip to the library a reward for completing their chores etc. There's a place in the library for everyone in your family, even you.

Ask the librarian what books are popular with the kids in their age group and what their peers are checking out. Librarians can be sooooo helpful and they are there to assist you in any way.

Select a wide variety of reading material every time you go to the library to expose them to more things. Even magazines and comic books. Books about building, art and crafts, astronomy or cooking would definitely be a great way to go. They may have a hidden talent that could be developed this summer.

Find fun places for the kids to read. A designated reading corner with a pillow and blanket would work nicely. Reading to your preschoolers is the perfect way to develop a love for reading and it's great quality time together.  Your kids will always have a great memory of reading with you.

Reading Teepees are cool too. It defines a special place for the kids to read, whether it is inside or outside the house. Great reading memories can be made inside a fun reading teepee.   CLICK HERE TO GET THE DETAILS on making this  No Sew Teepee

Now that you have the kids reading and enjoying it, how about giving them a fun reading reward? We have bookmarks for girls (above) and for boys (below) Kids LOVE bookmarks and how else are they going to mark their place in the books?    

 CLICK HERE  for bookmarks for girls.

We designed these bookmarks in colors that the boys would like.  Who knows…..they might just make reading even more fun!
