As a child I dreamed of having a candy dress - pink bubble gum wrappers would make up the dress, with lollipop buttons and a crinoline of golden "Crunchie bar wrappers". A candy button belt (see previous posting) and licorice "trim" to finish (twisted to look like rick-rack).
Sound elaborate? Hey, I didn't even mention the cellophane "lace"..... Believe me, I spend a lot of my childhood designing that dress in my imagination.
Candy boxes and wrappers are inspiring too - have you ever really looked at the boxes stacked up in the drugstore candy aisle? - bubbly letters, rainbow writing and wonderful anthropomorphic candy "people" cavorting across glossy boxes ... feel inspired yet?
Candy is one of the main reasons I love Halloween so much! - can you name any other time of year when it is publicly acceptable to fill your shopping cart with candy? Or for kids to come home from trick-or-treating with PILLOW CASES full of chocolate coated sugar bliss???
Everyone has their "THING" - you know, the one thing that really gets you "fired up". For me it has always, without a doubt, been candy!
Amazingly I only have two cavities.
