Need something really quick to make for someone who is dropping by, or maybe for a class party? These "tiny treat baskets" are SO quick and easy and just perfect! Seriously, they are addictive to make! The tutorial over on Splitcoast makes it easy!

The only problem I encountered is that York Peppermint patties now do not come wrapped in foils like they used to, they are wrapped in a more chocolate bar like wrapper, so they are not as cute. The Palmers ones are okay still though, although a little smaller . . .

The other fun discovery I made -- remember how I busted my "C" plate for my cuttlebug so long long ago . . . well I used the pieces of it and made do with that -- and then a couple weeks ago I cracked one of those (so now they are not useable) . . . well, I discovered that you can use the "A" plate, a cuttlebug embossing folder and then your die and paper between two "B" plates and it cuts and embosses the edge a bit. Just like my "C" plate did - WOOHOO! So now I am not so mega worried about having a "C" plate, I can wait till somewhere has them in stock, rather than pay $30 for it or something ordering it from New Zealand . . . *a Christmas Miracle*

Happy Wednesday! It was SO cold here this morning . . . well, at least by AZ standards. Hope you are keeping warm and toasty wherever you are! I am off to chase my little guy . . . I can't believe he will be 1 on FRIDAY! EEK! He is pushing the chair around the kitchen/eating area and walking with it . . . time flies!!!
