Feeling Gimpy?

s63735 Findings - Medium French Wire - Rose Gold (Pack)

Gimp – not a condition that describes legs after that ill-fated plan to hike up the mountain – but the tightly coiled wire – also called French Wire – that you slip over the thread at the end of the necklace, before you add the clasp. It protects the thread from abrasion, and makes for a nice looking finish.

Hearts – Santa & the Valentines

Once upon a time, there was a lovely couple who met and fell in love at a chocolate-making class. However, their affection for each other was so passionate that the chocolate kept melting in their hands as they tried to make dark-chocolate ganache-filled truffles with a hint of Grand Marnier. Frustrated with their attempts – they took a vacation to the Arctic to see the northern lights. As they stood, holding hands under the flaming green and red sky – they realized – their hands were cold.

So they packed up their chocolate, their collection of garden gnomes, and their assorted cats, and moved to the north pole. Sam and Anita Valentine now live next door to the Clauses. Their cats chase the reindeer, the garden gnomes confuse the heck out of the elves, and they drop off their chocolate samples to Mr and Mrs Claus – which is why they are so jolly and … truffle-shaped. 😉
