We started the new year with a bang by hosting a booth at the Atlanta Gift Show. We had so much fun decorating our booth to fit our fun and bright company personality. The gift show is such a lively environment filled with beautiful products and happy shoppers. It’s always delightful to spend time at this Gift Show! We love to meet and visit with new people and share our products!
We were pleased to share our booth with the fashion forward Clean Couture. Love their products! The mix of color and patterns in this booth made it the happiest place at the show!

As promised last week, when we shared some delicious and simple Hanukkah treat ideas, here are some fabulous and tasty Christmas treats for you to make this year with your family. Enjoy!
Hot Chocolate Dippers
This one could not be simpler! Dip candy canes in melted chocolate (dark, milk, or even white!), then drizzle with white (or milk) chocolate for added pizzazz. If you choose to get fancy, you could even add a mini marshmellow or two!
Brownie Christmas Trees
Cut brownies into triangles, add a thin candy cane as the trunk, decorate with icing and Red Hots – or any candy of your choosing. Simple, fun, and festive!
For these adorable bites of deliciousness, you’ll need a few more ingredients…large marshmellows, lollipop/popsicle/ or pretzel sticks, ribbon, melting chocolate, cinnamon candy, small pretzels, candied pearls (or other candies) for the eyes.
It’s a tad more labor intensive than the other treats I’ve shared with you, so here are directions…
Break the pretzels in half, you’ll need two halves for each reindeer’s antlers. Count out your cinnamon candies, score the tops of the marshmellows (for the pretzels) and put them on the sticks. Once your assembly line is set, it’s time to melt your chocolate.
Place chocolate melts or chocolate chips in a microwaveable glass bowl. Microwave on high at 20-30 second intervals, stirring each time until chocolate is just melted, but not too hot. Dip a marshmallow into the chocolate, covering it entirely. Use the backside of a spoon to smooth out the side and top, and to remove any excess. Repeat the process on the next marshmallow.
After about five or six marshmallows, add the pretzel antlers, by gently inserting them into the scored parts of the marshmallows, and hold them for a few seconds to make sure they are secure. This might take some practice, so be patient!
For the nose and eyes, you can either add them when the chocolate is still wet, or finish the whole batch, then dab some melted chocolate onto each piece and attach it to the marshmallow to make the face.
Once they are completely dry, tie a small piece of ribbon around the stick like a scarf. Ta da – so very cute!!
Merry Christmas! Enjoy your delicious – and adorable – holiday treats!
So Hanukkah 2012 started a few days ago but for all of our Jewish friends, we thought it would be fun to share some quick and easy ideas for Hanukkah treats. The kids (and adults) will love ‘em! And of course one not need to be Jewish to partake in the yummy Hanukkah goodness!
All you need is marshmellows, pretzel sticks, blue sugar, and some Hershey’s kisses. So easy and fun!
These delicious Hanukkah treats are created from Hershey’s kisses, marshmallows, pretzel sticks, and melted semisweet and white chocolate.
This yummy Hanukkah menorah is so simple! Cupcakes (homemade or store bought, whichever you choose), Twix candy bars, and Peanut M&M’s on top for the candle flame.
Stay tuned next week for delicious Christmas treats…

Being in the stationery business we, of course, love all things paper. There are so many neat and fun things that can be done with simple paper. But the end result looks anything but simple…
Look how much fun you can have with basic office and craft supplies, some fantastic paper, embellishments, and your imagination!
Here’s what you’ll need:
Giant Paper Clips
Step 1: Gather supplies of your choice, including a few giant paperclips.
Step 2: Punch out some shapes, get stickers ready.
Step 3: Using your Glue, Tape, or Pop Up glue dots adhere the front and back pieces of card stock to the top of the paperclip, creating a great little area to embellish as you desire.
So there you go…very quick and simple!!
