Some Sweets

Well, I'm glad Blogger is back up and running. I'm still missing a post, so if it shows up twice, it's because I've reposted it, and Blogger has put it back up as well.

Anyway, IT'S MY BIRTHDAY! Yahoo!

In Holland, the kids would bring a tin of goodies to class on their birthdays and share it with the class. They would go from desk to desk and let each one take something out of the tin. Some would think it a funny tradition to give on your birthday. It makes perfect sense though. It's much better to give than to receive. Plus, the joy you derive from giving will make your day! All those happy faces! :)

So today I've got something sweet for you, not just because it's my birthday, but just because...scroll down for the freebies! :)

There's some Candy floss, Popcorn, Jelly beans, Gum Drops, Swirly candy sticks,some grab bags and even a couple of cupcakes.

A birthday just isn't complete without some ice cream!

Plus some candy sunshine made of Jawbreakers and Licorice Swirls:

Well, here's the whole Kit N Kaboodle for you. Maybe it'll work as a background.

Well, I'm off to have myself a GREAT birthday!

Here is an AWESOME birthday card by Christi at Christi's Creations using one of these images! Make sure you pay her a visit and check out the rest of her wonderful blog!!


I think it's an absolutely adorable card! Check out the button that looks like a candy. Too, too cute!












I have one from Stef at Glitterbabe's. Another adorable card, and I LOVE the sentiment!! Thanks Stef!


















Thanks for visiting!

  52. I just discovered your blog today and this post caught my eye. I am from Holland and remember well the custom of bringing treats to school on your birthday. In my school we also brought a treat for all the teachers and we were allowed to go from class to class to give each teacher their treat.
