Valentine Vending During the Polar Vortex

Brrr...The Polar Vortex is here -- and last night's Valentine Vending event kept the chill away with some Snowman Soup (hot cocoa) and candy jars and lots of handmade cards. Also made some butterfly candies - Smarties glue dotted (is that a real word?) onto butterfly diecuts -- in the birdcage. Oh and M&Ms sticks, of course. 

My favorite project was not for sale: the painted mason jars with flowers. I painted those mason jars with chalk cream paint. I had won the jars at a Women's Club event. They were sprayed with red gloss spray paint and tied with that gorgeous gingham ribbon. With some dollar store roses, it was the perfect backdrop with some wood crates from Christmas Tree shop. I don't know what is more fun -- vending or making the table display!
