BRINGS LUCK TO YOUR LIFE AND MONEY TO YOUR POCKET!!!
Night to Remember
(Vanessa Brown - August)
Plastic champagne glasses filled with votive or tealight, chocolate mint, matches, bath
bead, teabag, etc, wrapped in Mylar,
cello, tissue, or netting, tied with ribbon, with the Night to Remember poem attached.
RELAX WITH WAX
DRAW ONE BATH, LOCK DOOR
LIGHT ONE CANDLE, ADD ONE BATH BEAD,
EAT ONE CHOCOLATE.
Stress Relief Kit
(Andrea Cloutier submitted this early in September)
Put these together in inexpensive little baskets from craft stores
A chocolate kiss to remind you that you are loved
A match to light your fire when you feel burned out
A Tootsie Roll to remind you not to bite off more than you can chew
Smarties to help you on those days you don't feel so smart
A Starburst to give you a burst of energy on those days you don't have any
Snickers to remind you to take time to laugh
A bag to help you keep it all together and to give you food for thought
And most importantly, a candle to remind you that you can brighten someone's day!

This can be done in a size 10 font and printed on 6x9 manila envelopes. (It is
best to remove the butterfly clasp or it could get jammed.) The items can be put in the
envelope and given to anyone who needs a boost!
(I've used this as quickie teacher gifts, doorprizes, etc)
4 or 5 different colored plastic tealites rolled up in a piece of shiny Mylar
cellophane, tied at each end (like a tootsie roll) with curly ribbon.
(Vanessa Brown submitted this idea back in August)
2 vanilla votives (to look like ice cream scoops), arranged in Wal-Mart's glass votive
holders (57 cents - they look just like sundae glasses - find them in the candle aisle of
the crafts & fabric department - not the regular candle & party goods aisle), then
you put black or brown Mylar shreds on the top of the votives(arrange like it is chocolate
syrup or fudge running over the top of the votive..ice cream..) then cover the glass with
clear cellophane or Mylar.

Spray the ivory ceramic 3-wick holder with gold spray paint, place the large snowball
on it, wrap the whole thing in sparkly netting or tulle (she said she found some that
actually had gold stars all over it), tie with a ribbon & attach the Frosty Junior
poem to it.
My name is Frosty Junior
I'm a [candle from Cape Cod].
The longer that you burn me, the better I'll do my job.
Just keep my wick to a quarter-inch and I'll burn right down the center.
And since I'm made of peppermint, I make a perfect room-scenter!
When my wick gets to the bottom, don't throw me out, oh dear!
Just drop in our votive candle and bring me out each year.
I make a perfect gift for someone you think is great,
So if you would like more of me, call (your name & number)!!!
