sweeties


 How can it possibly be Friday, already?

As Christmas is rapidly approaching, I thought I'd share a few fun craft ideas. We host a little Christmas party every year, and the crafts are a big part of it. Today, let's focus on 'sweet'...
 How cute are these little gumdrop 'pops'?
Little 'sweetie' snails... 
A perfect little gingerbread wreath. Have I mentioned how much I adore gingerbread? One of my favorite Christmas memories is the annual gingerbread baking extravaganza with my mom and sister.

So many ideas, so little time...
Have the loveliest of weekends, my friends.
We're going to be busy little elves...
If you have a moment, visit I Love Pretty Little Things for lots of pretties.

Love the gumdrop snails and people. What fun! I bought a packet of imitation snow - I've been trying to figure out what to do with it. So clever.

Don't know what I'm doing this weekend. But I have much of the decking of the halls done. Love your sweets! Don't know if I could eat a snail though, no matter what it's made out of!
