Olaff and Chocolate…

We have some of the cutest kids in our neighborhood and before I leave to see the “littles” in St. Petersburg, I wanted to leave them a little treat for their stockings.  My initial idea was to make Olaff and include some chocolate.

Here’s my attempt at an Olaff tag…

Are you giggling?  Me too!  I just couldn’t get him to look like that lovable little guy in the movie.  So I made a “Uie” (better known as a U turn) and came up with these…

They may not look like Olaff, but since they are wrapped chocolate nuggets they will taste good and I love their little hats.  Here is how they were wrapped for giving…

Things are getting finished and packaged in my studio the last couple of days.  Christmas cards are mailed.  Lots of cleaning up and some cooking left to do and we’ll be ready to head south for a week or so.

I’ll be relieved to have finished all these projects and rest my mind for a bit.  I know the “littles” will keep us on the run with all the fun things we hope to do with them while we are there and they are out of school.

Hope you are realizing the end to your planning and hard work too.  Here’s your “B-ism” for today…
