Another busy day . . .

Happy Friday Afternoon Blogging Friends!
Yesterday I shared with you a few photos of what's going on in
my Crafting Cave in preparation for this years Fall Craft Fairs.  Some
of you requested seeing these items when they were completed
so today I spent the day decorating and packaging
the Ghiradelli boxes and the Tea Cups.

Here ya go . . .

As I stated yesterday, each little box holds THREE Ghiradelli chocolate squares.
(When creating an 'edible package like these, 
be sure to verify the shelf life date on the candy before packaging!!)

Here's a peek at the tea cups once filled and then again packaged...

 Each tea cup contains TWO different Teas and TWO different DOVE'S Chocolates

I will be making more Christmas tea cups for my November show 
but for the September show I decided to use 'everyday'  patterns that 
can be used for a variety of occasions ... here's a peek . . .

Thankfully, I still have a few weeks before show time
and already have a good head start on my goodies inventory!  

As soon as I get a few of the tissue box covers completed, I'll be back to share!

Challenges to share in:

But that's it for today and probably the weekend since I'm headed to Pennsylvania tomorrow afternoon for my  high school multi-year class reunion. 
I'm not even going to admit how many years ... LOL!!
HOLY MOLY ... where has the time gone?  
Dang!  Old age can sure sneak up on a person!  LOL!!

Till next time and as always . . .

And now you're flitting off to Pennsylvania? Sheesh! Where do you get the energy? We all have the same # of hours in a day, but it takes a lot of energy to fill them up the way you do. These all look so CUTE packaged up like this! Who could resist?
