I feel like this care package is a game of "Can you Spot the Difference". We've had a Petit Treat box, a Harry Potter Card, a Cellobag of M&M's, and today...teeny tiny milk cartons that are just big enough to hold a single Hershey's Kiss. Super Cute, super adorable, and quick as can be to make, without any special tools.
I originally saw these cute little boxes on the Julie DiMatteo's Paper Pixie site. She made them for her son's 3rd birthday and I thought they were just adorable. Add some Toil & Trouble Designer Series Paper, a Gold Library Clip, and some Solid Black Baker's Twine and they make the perfect addition to my Halloween care package.
Want to learn how to make them? I'll be showing you how on my Crafty Saturday Facebook Live. Pop on over at 9 am EST Saturday morning and craft along with me.

Ok...so I know it's supposed to be 'Wow' Wednesday, but I'm sticking with my spooky Halloween theme this week. In addition to Monday's Petite Treat pouches, and my Toil & Trouble Quidditch card yesterday, today we add a Trick or Treat bag of M&M's using a 2" x 8" Cellophane Bag.
These bags are a great deal, too. For only $3.50, you get 50 bags. They're perfect for little sweets, or even pencils. Yes, I'm the lady on the block that gave pencils for Halloween. I've found, if you give pencils and erasers for a few years in a row, it keeps those little monsters away. Just kidding! Most of the littles love getting their own spooky pencil and eraser. The bigger kids (high school and above) aren't so keen on them, but there are plenty of other houses to go haunt. As a former high school teacher, I can tell you, those high school kids could really use an extra pencil or two in the backpack!
I can't wait to see what treat's in store tomorrow!

Happy October! What better way to celebrate than by featuring the super-cute-not-very-spooky Toil & Trouble Suite. What attracted me to this suite first was the...PAPER! You probably already guessed that, right? And to be perfectly honest, it was really about the witches! Too adorable!
I don't send many Halloween cards, maybe to my son and my niece and nephew. But what I do like to do is package up Halloween treats for the ghouls and goblins that I tutor. Ok, they really are sweet kids and they work really hard, so I like to give them a little something extra at the end of the week for a job well done. Who knows, maybe they're crafty, too!
Today's treat boxes used the Petite Treat Framelits Dies. I hadn't played with these yet and I was pretty amazed at how quickly these came together. Add Tear & Tape (on sale this week!) for adhesive strength, you've got a pretty handy dandy treat box for M&M's or other small candies or gifts.
How about a FREE Tutorial?

September Customer Appreciation Special:
FREE! Exclusive Tutorial for all September VIP's.
The car is packed and I'm off to the Stamping in the Mountains retreat. We've been talking about this for months and I know everyone is so excited. The recent hurricane had us worried. I heard from the two of the three that hit hardest by the storm and they are still coming to retreat! Through all the loss and devastation, the need to get away ans surround yourself with friends and fellowship, as well as being creative is really a basic need. I can't tell you how thankful I am to be able to serve their needs this coming weekend.
Today, I I used the Falling for Leaves Stamp Set to count my blessings. I am so thankful that even though there is a lot of clean up to do, that my friends are all safe. We need creative downtime even more when faced with adversity to keep our minds off our troubles, and to let out some of that stress and negative energy.
