CASology Candy

It’s time for a new cue word challenge over at CASology!  We’re collecting candy!

I don’t know about you, but I do have a favorite candy, unfortunately.  You probably thought it was chocolate all this time, didn’t you?!  Here’s the thing…I don’t really consider chocolate to be candy.  It’s a vitamin.  That’s right!  A pure necessity for some of us.  I remember as a kid curling up every now and then with a good book and a bag of Skittles!  Only the original flavors.  I’m not much for the new flavors they’ve come out with since then.  I’m planning on having a little gumball machine filled with them in my new decompression chamber (a.k.a. craft room) once it’s up and running!  It will add some fun color and I’ll be able to have a little dose of sugar when needed!

For this week’s cue word, I immediately thought of a stamp I’ve had in my stash for a very long time.  It’s one from Hambo Stamps, one of my favorite humorous stamp companies!  If you visit their store, you’ll soon find out why I like it so much.

Can you relate to this?  I sure can.  Thus, the reason I don’t buy Halloween candy until very close to Halloween.  I can’t buy things I don’t like!  That just doesn’t seem right.  So…I buy the things I do like, but wait until I can’t get into the stash for fear of disappointing our trick-or-treaters with an empty candy dish!

Be sure and visit the design team members’ blogs as well as this week’s guest designer’s blog for even more sweet inspiration!

    This is so fun. I can totally relate to this. I consider myself lucky around Halloween that we live on a flag lot and never get trick or treaters. Before that, I cannot say how many bags of candy I ate before Halloween.
