Christmas Candy Crafting Break

This weekend, I took a break from crafting and had some friends over for our annual candy making session.  We started early at 11 am and went non-stop until 3 pm. It was a lot of work and a lot of fun and I thought I'd share a few pictures with you.

Here are the tools of the trade. We take different colored chocolates and hand-paint the candy molds for a variety of effects.

Shelby and Grace produced this fine tray of candies. Most their candy was going to their teachers and classmates at school.

Everyone is working hard here. From left to right is Morgan, Betsy, Shelby, Grace and Maranna.

Nevaeh and her mother Morgan with a delicious looking tray of goodies.

This was the scene for about 4 hours with me (in red) directing traffic.  The gentleman in the corner is Danny, who stopped by and decided to try his hand at making some chocolates.

Maranna  and Nevaeh with lots of chocolates.

Maranna's fantastic work.

Thanks for looking and hope your holiday preparations are going well for you too. Thanks to my husband, Bill, who helped out big time since I am still run down from the flu. He did all the prep for this party including washing and drying all the molds. Also I want to thank Sam for coming...she somehow managed to leave without having her photo taken. Next year Sam!!

Happy Holidays!

What a fun, fun day you all had! How wonderful of you to organize such a bonding activity with your neighbours, including adults and children alike! And you look like you are having a grand time directing traffic. Thanks so much for sharing!
I'm sorry that you are still feeling run down and hope you continue to recover!

Wow! They look great. What really caught my eye was the name "Nevaeh". One of my daughter's best girl friends is also named "Nevaeh" (Heaven spelled backwards). I have never ever seen that name before anywhere!

Anyway, what a great project and a lot of happy candy-makers!
