caramel apples and a craft.....

Today dawned early for day started before 5:30 this morning! I honestly enjoy getting up when my body and mind are in agreement!! But that happens on rare today!!
Thankfully today seemed to be productive and fulfilling! I lovingly made 25 caramel apples to take to our sons classroom this afternoon....I even squeezed in some crafting time tonight! YAY! I haven't got to sit down and make a card all week! But Tonight was the night!

The apples I used was a brand I'd never had before. The name of them is Grimes. They are VERY tasty and their slight twang mixes perfectly with the caramel! I couldn't resist adding sprinkles and a little bow to the stick. I ended up spending about 3 hrs on them from start to finish. That time included making the bows.

This little dear is a package that some
buttons I bought had come in. CARDS had
posted a challenge to decorate a package .
In my dallying....I missed the deadline
but wanted to post it for you all. :)

Now I better get myself off to bed! It's LATE! And tomorrow looks like another busy day!


Delightful cherry jelly........

I decided to go visit a friend from church who was diagnosed with breast cancer last year.
Thankfully, after her double mastectomy they declared her cancer free. As a precaution she has been taking chemo and radiation treatments for the past several months.
I didn't want to go visit her empty handed so I grabbed a jar of my homemade cherry jelly and added a few trimmings to it. I put in down in a brown paper sack and wrapped the top of it with a paper doily. I secured the doily to the top of the bag by punching to small holes and tying it with twine.
