  1. Dear Valerie,

    I think that you need to find a use for all of those colorful peanut butter cup wrappers from the candy which is supposed to be for the children on Halloween.

    Where is that bag, by the way?



  2. Lots of great ideas! Thanks for sharing them 🙂

  3. What kind of paint was used to paint the sticks? Thx.

    • I’m not sure what was used on these particular ones, but I would go with acrylic paint for these. Have fun!! 🙂

  4. Thank you! My girls love sticks and this would be neat.

  5. Yet again, one quick stop by your blog has set me up with more great ideas than we’ll ever have time to try this week! Thanks *so* much for all the time and inspiration you put into your posts!
