SU Stars Fall & Halloween Blog Hop

Hi and welcome to my post for this weekends Stampin'Up! Stars Fall & Halloween Blog Hop 2012! If you are arriving here from Krafting with Karen www.kraftingwithkaren.blogspot.com then you are at the second stop on the hop! If you missed her beautiful creations, then click the above link and head back.  Please take a few minutes to leave comments on everyone's blogs.  We really do appreciate your kind words!
 
I have been hard at work during this year's busy craft fair season.  Below are a few of the projects I have completed and sold at local craft fairs.
First up I have a really festive gift you can take your hostess when you come over for a delightful holiday visit.  I really love this thick striped ribbon that Stampin'Up! no longer carries, boo, but I have a ton of it for my own person use! I simply cut a long strip of the ribbon and threaded my wine glass charms that I made with the Gently Falling stamp set and our Watercolor Pencils on Shrinky Dink paper. I used Stampin'Up! circle punch, paper piercer and heat gun.  The wine glass charms are quick and make a very thoughful gift that is also easy to personalize with initials or anything else that you want to stamp on them!
 
Here is a closer picture of the wine glass charms.
 

I made a few more goodies for the local craft fairs including the Double Pouch Tea Bag Holder, Halloween candy sticks, and Mummy Gum Wrapper.

Last but certainly not least are the adorable witches broom sticks I made! I found chocolate licorice  and put it in our skinny bags and tied it up pretty for a quick little Halloween treat for the kids.  I hope you have enjoyed seeing what I have been up to. 
 
BLOG CANDY ALERT!
 
Please take a few minutes to leave a comment and I will give away one set of my Wine Glass Charms along with some beautiful ribbon to tie on your own wine bottle! I will give you until Monday morning to leave a comment, then I will randomly have the computer select a winner. Good Luck!
 
Thanks so much for stopping by and keep on the Blog Hop going to Stamping with Janice www.stampingwithjanice.com
 
Have a great weekend!
