On Friday....a faux hard candy tutorial

This Friday, I'll give you an easy way to make fake hard candies.  You can use them to make a wreath or just to put in a container to look pretty.  My mother had saved the candy tin I put on my kitchen hutch and wanted to make something to go with it. That's how I came up with the hard candy idea...and  I just realized we need to be busy creatin' for the Holidays, yikes !
  So stop by on Friday if you think you might want to make some for show.   I'll be working on that and also working on some items for my Etsy shop which I have sorely neglected.  PUHLEEEZE some one give me some momentum ... I am now not only moving in Granny mode but seem to be going backwards too.LOL.
Until then my wish for you :  A sweeeet week !(())

I loved your rosette tutorial and you can bet, I will be back Friday to learn how to make fake hard candy. I am a candy jar collector and love to display them.
I have tons of fake food...gotta have fake candy too.

If I find some extra momentum hanging around here, I send it your way. It seems a scarce commodity for many of us. UGH.

I won't dare miss the tutorial on Friday. That sounds like a perfect project, and I want to learn how to do it. I have these two holder thingies that I like to keep candy in just for looks. The problem is, it goes bad.

I'll be here!

What show was this quote from? "I'll be back"

With these tutorials it seems that you are busy enough; you must have some get-up-and-go - probably more that many of us. However, not knowing your usual schedule, perhaps your body/mind is saying, "Girl, you need to slow down some!"
Looking forward to your "candy" recipe.
