Custom Pendant for a Wedding

I've made many a piece of candy jewelry but this one is the sweetest (sorry, candy pun!)

Requested for a bride by her bridesmaid Monica to be her something borrowed and something blue.  Monica mailed me this special fortune she found and I put it into a custom fortune pendant.


"You can only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough" What a wonderful sentiment to carry with you on your wedding day.

World's Largest Bar of Chocolate

Wowza!  Weighing in at 9,702 pounds there's a new winner for the Guinness Book of World Records for world's largest bar of chocolate.  It measures 224-inch by 110-inch by 10-inch and looks amazing.

What a sweet way to start the weekend.

Tiny Matchbook Notebooks

Look what I made!

Little tiny Candy Calamity matchbook notebooks!  They fit anywhere you might need a little extra scratch paper.  Plus the white paper is recycled (previously printed on one side) so who knows what surprises you might find.

Now you might be asking yourself: "How do I get my hands on one of those fancy little things?"
It's easy.  These are a free gift to anyone who donates to the upcycle exchange. (bring candy wrappers and coffee bags please!).  Once you get your donation coupon, come find me at any of the shows I'm doing this fall/winter.  You'll get 15% off any purchase, plus you can snag a matchbook notebook just for stopping by, or use your coupon code for a purchase at my etsy store and I'll be sure to include one in your package.
