I have promised to help out at the Village Autumn Fair tomorrow and was offered either the gift stall or helping with the teas. No contest really as I hate catering of any sort and especially teas. I like my tea black and very ‘thin’ if you know what I mean. I’m a dip it in and take it out type of gal where tea is concerned so hence the aversion to making copious quantities of it. Anyway I digress. I spent yesterday covering chocolate bars and Elizabeth Shaw chocs in a bid to at least have something on the gift stall. I’m hoping that the lady who asked me to help will have a goodly supply of things to sell as gifts. If not then we won’t be making much on that stall!!
Father Christmas , Reindeer, Trees and Snowman lend themselves fairly easily to covering little bars of chocolate
and I was quite pleased with my little robins which I fashioned for the slightly more adult version. The packs of 6 bars have been on offer at different times in the supermarkets so I usually stock up on the when I see them. ( They are good for when I’m needing a chocolate fix too.) Elizabeth Shaw chocolates are the same and often appear as BOGOF and this year they also had an Amaretto variety which is scrummy – well you have to do a test don’t you! Sorry the light has bounced off the cellophane bags but there didn’t seem to be any way I could stop that . I have to say these ideas aren’t mine. I saw them on the lovely Lisa’s blog at least two years ago and adapted them . I can’t seem to find the actual items on her blog but there is a link to her blog which has lots of interesting things on there. She is a very talented lady and I don’t want to think that I am using her talents in a bad way.
Well that is me done. Off to have some home-made soup and then off to town to see the chiropodist. Oh what an exciting life I lead.
Enjoy your weekend and keep crafting.
