Candy shop slow progress

Hello dear readers,

Working with my great-grand-daughter Dana was pure joy. On Saturday, she came and stayed with me for a few hours.  I wanted us to make candies for the shop together, but Dana had other plans. She wanted to make pipe-cleaner animals.  She created one little teddybear working on it for almost one hour and was very happy with the results.  Then she made a small pipe cleaner basket and filled it with tiny yellow foam balls (food for the teddies). I gave her another little bear, a dog, and a cat.  She was gloriously happy with the lot.  We glued the two teddies and their food under a transparent cover to keep them safe from predators (little brother).













For the candy shop, we made Ferrero Rocher boxes.  We used the original wrappings from the candy itself.  Punched 1.5 cm circles out of the golden sheet and 0.5 cm circles out of the brown paper cup.  Dana cupped each golden circle with the end of a rubber topped pencil, put a small bead inside and rolled it into a ball. Then she cupped the brown circles and glued the golden ball into each. It remained for me to glue 8 balls in two rows onto pieces of a clear acetate,  wait until they dried and cover them with chewing gum blisters.  Dana stuck the original candy label on top of each blister.









Time passed away too quickly. My daughter Galia, Dana's grandmother who lives close by, came to take her back.  She was staying with them for a few days but had to go back to her parents.  They live in the Ashdod, a town one hour by car far from us. It will be long before I see her again as school starts next week.

To summarise Dana's visit:  Not much was accomplished for the shop. Between the two of us, a few Ferrero Rocher real-life candies are resting in peace within us.  I learned new dance steps and new versions of old pop songs played on Dana's cellular phone.  Sorry, no photos. There were only the two of us and no one to take photos.  There was a lot of laughter and joyful "ohs" as well as bright suggestions about the shop's door, leaving me with instructions  "For a knob make a cupcake. For a handle make a lollipop".  Needless to mention how much I'll miss Dana.

I wish you the best with blessings!

  13. The important thing wasn't to make a lot of miniatures but to spend time with your lovely great granddaughter. What joy it must have been.

  15. No doubt - creativity runs in the family! Dana had some wonderful ideas for your candy shop - you will have no other choice than to do what she suggested. ;O) It was very lovely to meet your darling great granddaughter, it's easy to tell from her face that she enjoyed your time together very much. And I like that she has her own ideas, preferring to create some teddies she could take home with her instead of just making candies for your shop - a very clever little girl. The predator proof dome made me smile for sure - I hope the little folk will be able to enjoy their delicious baubles. Thanks for sharing these very special moments with us - and for showing your method with the Rochers. I admire that you're also thinking of the brown base paper !

    Hugs
