Good day everyone!!!
Sorry I'm a bit late today with my post!
It's been a bit 'kookie' around here lately with sickness and sleepiness, lol!
There's no word to describe the oddness of it all,
so I just borrowed one of my sis' made up words, hee hee

I'm short on time,
so please bear with me while I combine 2 posts
and a bunch of challenges into one ;)
Keeps you from having to scroll down further, right?! hee hee

First, I have a Pixie Dust Challenge for you!

alter any item
that you can put something inside of it
 - .i.e. a jar, can, box, basket, etc...

I've had (and still have!) a hidden stash of chocolates on my crafty desk for the last 3 months now, hee hee!
I decided to dress up my tin a bit and really show my love of chocolate...
AND! also, make it girly enough to keep 'boys' away ;)

I adore her hair!!! and she really does love her chocolates!
I tried to get all chocolate-y with deep reds and brown colors...

Stash & chocolate are not two words I could ever use in the same sentence! lol choc never lasts long enough for me to stash some away!
My hubby will actually buy a few Hershey candy bars, so when I whine to him that I need choc, he'll have it for me! lol We live wayyy out in the country and it saves him a trip to the store! haha too fun!
take care sweetie!
