I’ve seen lots of them look super cute with M&M type candies, but that also means someone has to touch all of those M&Ms!

Party Favors

Eve had her birthday sleepover last weekend, and I figured instead of just giving the girls party favors, I would have them make them!

More Nugget Purses

For our school’s benefit each year, the teachers are asked to donate an “outing” of some kind, which is then raffled off to the students.
