Candy Dish

While I was in the dollar store the other day I picked up this clear glass container. It is relatively large so I wouldn't say it is for candles so I'm guessing for candy or that type of thing. I thought it would be neat to use some rub-ons to decorate this dish. My intent was to make it for Kyler's teacher for Easter. She likes plain M&M's so I'll get some spring colored M&M's but them in a cello bag and then present it in this dish. It was hard to get a good picture without anything in it but the front of the dish says The Sweetest Thing and the sides are decorated with a scrolly, flowery type of rub-on. I started out using the black rub-on instead of white but I ruined it and had to take it off and start over again...with the white. All in all I like the look. Whatcha all think?

A couple of my SU! customers placed an order yesterday and I had some stuff to add to it that got me a free SAB set. While looking at the mini catalog I realized that I had totally missed one set that is so stinkin' cute! It is called Merci and has a heart, butterfly, small flower, big flower, and of course the word Merci. I can see many cute thank you cards with that set! Just remember the SAB catalog is only good for another 2 weeks so if you want any of the sets just contact your demo to place an order for you. Also, I feel the need to let you guys know that SU! has raised their minimum shipping cost from $3.95 to $6.95. What this means is that any order from $1 to $69.49 will have a shipping cost of $6.95. $69.50 and above will have the regular 10% applied to the order. I have to be honest and tell you that I don't like the raise in the minimum at all. While I completely understand the cost of shipping has risen a lot I also know that lots of online crafting stores don't even charge shipping with an order of $35 or $40 (and one I have bought from it's $10). I don't honestly think that this change will help SU! but they have to do what they need to make their business work too.

Okay, now that the unpleasant news is over how about some good news? Do you guys remember that I gave you a little challenge last Friday and that I said I'd pick a winner from those that told me about their RAK? Well, it looks like only 3 people took me up on my challenge so I'm sending all three of you a little something. Kristine, Cheryl, and Diane...thank you for stepping outside of yourself and doing something nice for another person. If you three ladies would please e-mail me your addresses (even if I already have it) I'll get something off to you!

I hope that you all make today a great Monday!

I missed your post on Friday, and I don't want anything for my "good deed" but wanted to share, even without reading we share the same thoughts. At the store the young man ahead of me in line (buying fruit, milk and baby food) didn't have enough for tax. I pinched in the $.16 cents and made his day. You would have thought I gave him a million dollars instead of $.16 cents. Even the smallest things mean alot to some! :) ~Janel
