Mommy & Me Sweetheart Class

It's been awhile since I planned and organized a Mommy & Me class. Valentine's Day is the perfect time to do so! The projects below are the three that will be made for this particular class. Each child will make five of each to give to their special friends.

Pretzel bags with chocolate

Last minute additions to Business Night...

These chocolates are decorated with various punches and put in pretzel bags. I tried to make some gender neutral bags. It's so easy to stick with pink & reds for Valentine's Day, so I went with more masculine colors. I think even those could be given to girls too!
Since there will be military women present at the Business Night, I decided to make a few cards with them in mind. These are promotion cards packaged in 3's with envelopes.

I just love the stamp set "Godspeed." I will never part with it! These cards are also packaged in 3's but each one has a different verse inside from the Service & Sacrifice stamp set. There is a difference in these cards. Can you see it? It's the color of ribbon along the side. I couldn't decide which I liked better (chocolate or spring moss) so I used both. What do you think?

Some things I am working on...

There is an upcoming Business Night I was invited to attend, which I am completely thrilled about! I've been working on crafts to sell while also hoping to get a new customer base. These events really light a fire under me and motivate me to "touch my business." I'm mostly making Valentine-themed items. It's fun to stick to one holiday and work on projects surrounding it.
These nuggets tins are a favorite of mine. I figure I could make a few and possibly take orders, if need be.
3 x 3 cards (pkgs. of 5 w/envelopes) that need to be colored.

Both these items are going to people who RSVP and tell me they plan on visiting my table next week.

Conversation heart sliders
These are really easy and fun to make!

I saw this candle on a few blogs, so I decided to try it myself. For some reason, I have a hard time stamping with this stamp. Does anyone else? Also, I am looking for your input as to where to buy candles. So far, the ones I've bought drip alot!
