I love Candy Corn!

In my last minute rush to get ready for our Fall Festival, I have been a MAD WOMAN! I have started on a few stitcheries but decided that I could do them from the shop tomorrow. So, I pulled off of that to finish my apples and pears but then I realized that I could put the stems in while at the shop tomorrow. (Are you seeing a pattern here?) I got it! I can finish more candles! I had just finished a pile of grubby candles but I was looking for something with a little more Fall life to it!

Viola! Candy Corn Grubbies! I tried to "pose" them in this basket for you all to see!
Does anyone else start out with something in your mind and you end up with a totally different project or is it just me? I had a bread basket at the shop that I wanted to fill with something Fall-like for the Festival. I think these Candy Corn Candles will be perfect! I am going to add a piece of homespun and maybe even a tag to each one. (Of course, I can do that from the shop . . . tomorrow!)

Procrastination . . . one of my many assets!

I also wanted to share a picture of the Window box my hubby made for me. This old window came out of a house that was being renovated in the area. The wood for the box is from an old house too . . . OURS! We are adding on a room and they had taken some old pieces down to cut the entryway. I couldn't bear it going to waste so we are using it little by little on different projects. I meant to clean the window before I took the picture but forgot! (Again, procrastination!)

I am going to hang this one on the side of our garden shed. He built me another one to put at the shop and I have that one sitting on a table filled with goodies! I will post a picture of the one here at home as soon as the the hubby has a chance to hang it for me!

Talk to you all soon!

I love the candy corn! They turned out great. I agree with the other gals, my mind goes 100 miles an hour but my hands can only do so much. Have a great day.

Love the window! Very nice.

The candy corn candles are very neat.

And yes, I often think of one thing and end up elsewhere. That's why I have so many projects in the works! :) I guess that what happens when you are creative!

Have a great day.

LOL! I'm not a procrastinator very often. I set goals for myself and try to accomplish them. Sometimes that's the only way I can motivate myself to get anything done! So I don't know which is worse! LOL!
Love the window box and the candy corn grubbies!
