“And above all,
watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you,
because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places.
Those who don't believe in magic will never find it.”

Some Sweet News

Hello again!
Hope everyone is doing well.We all had a bout with a cold but every one is much better now.
a couple weeks of not being able to make anything had me aching to paint, glue, draw, sculpt...anything!!!for now I made some candy lights, courtesy of Aunt Peaches.

Mine are a bit different from the ones on her blog, but it's pretty much the same style.
I used an old string of valentine's day lights with some colored cellophane & clear plastic plates from the dollar store.
Of course I got carried away and made some for my garden! This is a solar light that used to have a glass mushroom cover over it...well the cats broke (2) playing soccer or something, lol and all that was left of the covers were shards of glass.
This worked out nicely:)

I also have a bunch of empty ice cream cone bubble holders that I'm trying to figure out what to do with...any ideas?

AND....I also have stupendous-amazing-awesome-fantastic news to share with you!!!
Ive been chosen to be on Lisa Kettell's design team!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!I'm beyond excited-over-the-moon-hysterically-happy about this!
