Diane - you WERE the inspiration for the magnets (and the key fobs too??) and I really was on the fence but they sold really well last year. I still have key fobs left over.
Oh and Sam's Club (if you have that where you are!) has the holiday M&M candies.
I visit your blog often - its very cute and you work is great!
Maria - I usually do my mints like that as well, sometimes designer paper, sometimes a stamped image (mostly stamped image). I think the Elf is adorable and I'm going to see just how long it takes to do them since I think I'm going to sell them individually this year instead of in a bag.
I bought these stamps from Peach Kleen Stamps that are just faces of snowmen (to do the little baby hugs with) and I'm going to see how they look on the mint. I cannot draw anything (even a snowman face!) and these images are really cute. They were cheap and I got them in about two days (how fast is that!). I actually forgot I even bought these mints and didn't do them for the first sale. Totally spaced them out.
