Good news and Party Favors

Good morning Bloglanders

First the good news!! You remember my rainbow bookmark?
Well, I won the challenge over at The Twinery!  And this is my prize:

I love Twine and two more rolls to my stash would be wonderful. I'm not sure about the Michaels gift card as we don't have one in Sunny SA but I'm sure I'll think up a plan to utilize it.  Hop over to The Twinery and see for yourself. Just click here.

And next up: a way to celebrate - Party favors.  As my husband and I are both winemakers we are always trying to determine a way to determine a specific smell. I'm sure you've heard about citrussy  earthy, berry and things like that associated with wine. So I bought a whole bag of Jelly Beans when I found a mix of 50 different flavors.  We've been guessing flavors ever since.

Then I thought up a game using the Jelly Bean mix for party favors. My bags include some beans, note paper, pencil and the rules of the game - easy - you have to guess the flavors and write it down.  My first guinea pigs were  8, 13 and 17 year olds and I can report back - they all enjoyed the game and not a single bean was spilled. (hie hie hie!!)

Want to see?

And I decided to do one in the color combo of  The Play Date Cafe.  How's that for hybrid crafting?

And these are their colors for the week:

                            Grass ... Rose Petal ... Hibiscus

That's it from me. Thank you for visiting my Blog.  Please check back as I'll have some more crafting fun to share with you right here. I'm off to paint my craft desk but that's a story for another day.

Have a great day!
