This quote says it all for me:
"I do not understand how anyone can live without one small place of enchantment to turn to."
My small place is my studio area in the corner of my living room. My Whimcees are all the dolls, bears and other creatures that I sew from cloth or sculpt from clay, the cards and papercraft projects that I create.
It is with this blog I hope to share my world created in my small space.

Santa Suit Candy Bar Wrap
Here is the candy bar cover that I posted about yesterday on my WOYW? post. I call it a Santa Suit Candy Bar Wrap as I saw this idea on Pinterest but was unable to find it again to get a name for the project. I love it and have made 12 of them now to give as small gifts to my friends. They are so easy and fun to make and make a colorful Christmas gift!
To start you need a candy bar and when I saw these Million Dollar Bars I thought how perfect - a gift of a million dollars! Wow!
Then you need some red cardstock - glitter paper would have been even better - some black cardstock and a bit of sparkly gold paper. That's it. For the suit cut the red paper in a 6" x 6" square (you can get two candy bar covers from a 12" x 12" sheet of cardstock) and the belt is a 6" x 1 1/2" strip. For the buckle I used two square paper punches - punching one outside the other (punch the small square first and then punch the larger one around that cutout). Wrap the candy bar with the red cardstock and using an adhesive of choice, glue the overlaping edge (I use paper tape). Then wrap the black strip around the middle for the belt and glue and then attach the buckle.. Easy peasy and so much fun to make and give!
Yesterday I found this version of a million dollar bar - so much fun. Now I have to make 6 more!
