LITTLE "SWEET TREAT" EASTER FAVORS

Happy Wednesday, everyone!  I hope all's well!

Well, I've been out all day and I'm very disappointed... tomorrow is our anniversary and my hubby has me preparing to go out tomorrow for what he's calling an all day adventure -- starting with breakfast and ending with dinner.  Only he and God knows what he's planned for me in between, and I couldn't find a thing for him.  I searched but there just wasn't anything!!!  I'm really going to hate not having a gift for him to accompany the complementary one I made, and I probably won't feel comfortable all throughout the day.  Of course he won't be disappointed at all because he knows I'll make it up and also because it'll give him the "up" on me!  Unfortunately, special occassions turn into a competition between us, and he loves getting the better of me and I hate that he does!!!  I can just hear it now... "you couldn't think of a thing to get me for our anniversary  but I did this..."   I can't even imagine why this makes him feel so proud!!!  And I actually get caught up in all of it!!!  Well, I must admit, it definitely is fun when I get the "up" on him on those rare occasions... lol!!!  Guess I'm just a sore loser!!!

Anyway, I'm going to assume it'll be a bit late in the evening when we get in tomorrow and I wanted to share a little something I made with you today just in case I don't get a chance to post it tomorrow.  It has finally been determined at what relative's house our Easter dinner/gathering will be, and I'm going to surprise everyone with these little favors to take home.  I'm going to make a bunch of them and put them into an Easter basket and everyone can just grab one on their way out of the door when they're leaving:


Although I'm calling them "little sweet treats" they are not edible!!!  Why?  Because...  they're magnets!!!:


I'm making all these little cuties with Easter images I found on the internet and UTEE!  These are so much fun to make, so easy, and I'm loving playing with UTEE!!!  Besides, I think everyone will enjoy taking home these little sweet treat favors.

Well, I hope you like my little project; I'll let you know how our anniversary day went.  In the meatime...

I'll be seeing you!

I have been busy all day running too, and just got on my computer a little bit ago and was wondering if you had found DH a gift... :-(
.. but you are so funny... I can't wait to hear about all the adventures that he has planned for you.. and him being so pleased that he has one "up" on you. lol I know you are going to have such a "FUN" day... happy anniversary to you my friend.

AND I know everyone is going to love your little treats, they are just way too cute

I haven't been crafting at all.. besides still not feeling well, seems like I am just going here and there, getting nothing done. hugs my friend..

This is the cutest! I was thinking- what flavor are they? Then I see that you posted they are not edible!
Cute as can be...
Enjoy your time together with your honey tomorrow- it isn't the gift but the time we spend together and the quality and the way we treat each other.
I know your honey appreciates the jewel you are sweetie.

That is funny about your competition with the hubby! Mine always gets me better gifts b/c I'm super easy to shop for. On the rare occasion I find something perfect for him I get pretty excited about it :) I love your project!!!! The candy one is REALLY fun!!! I could see wearing one as a necklace too.

Mary said...

Okay Audrey it's official you have to do a tutorial on the use of utee. I truly am loving all the projects you do with this. Although I have some i have yet to explore its possibilities. Have a great anniversary day, hugs, Mary

First, HAPPY ANNIVERSARY!!!!! I love that your husband is so thoughtful. Most men never even remember their anniversary, let alone plan a whole day for their wife! What a guy, and you can tell him I said so! I love your little magnets. They are so creative and so adorable. What a thoughtful thing to do. Great stuff as always. Sorry it has taken me so long to get here! Best, Curt

Happy Anniversary.. remember sometimes its the small things we do for a person that you cannot put into a bag or a box, that truly matters.

Audrey, I hope you have a lovely anniversary with your husband. He will love your gift and besides, you're the real gift for him, I'm sure he sees it that way. You really make the most wonderful crafts. They are always unique. I thought these were sweet treats and here they are magnets! You do wonderful with UTEE - I'll have to get better and do some creative things with it myself! TFS!

Jean said...

Happy Anniversary tomorrow!! Hope you two have fun. Me and my husband are the same way with the gifts being a competition, I thought it was just us, lol.

Love these little Easter treats. You are so good with the UTEE, I just can't work with that for some reason. Me and my melting pot are not friends.

Sandy from Ukiah said...

Oh I hope you are having a wonderful time whatever you are doing... I am sure hubby had many many surprises planned for you... I have left something on my blog for you my friend...

the other day someone left me an award (that you had to give to 15 people.. wow.. lol) but I can't remember who gave it to me and I think they gave it to you too.. was hoping you might remember.. I for the life of me can't remember and feel bad I haven't posted it... I have looked and looked and can't find who left it for me.. hoping I remember right and you received it too... hugs
