That is so awesome. Simple and beautiful. It makes me happy to look at it and also makes me think of candy for some reason. How do you think of such creations?

It's so cute!!! I'll have to drag out the buttons for this one - Lilli might even be able to help me make these!

Sasha Faint said...

cool. You just gave me an idea for my xmas dish. I might cover one with foil and then cover it with some kind of sweet treat. I wonder if chocolate dipped strawberries would stay on it.

The perfect tree for the craftroom Clare, and if you are lucky, Santa might leave a bag of craft supplies under it on Christmas eve.[giggle]
