You become aware of a whole year passing when, for example, you make a cake for someone and add a year to the number on top. You also notice when the seasons start coming around again or in this case annual events. Last year, I was pleased to be able to help the teachers and staff of Edgewater school in Pincourt feel appreciated for their "Teacher Appreciation Day" last February, making them star-shaped pops. I have one of my Christmas sales at this school each year so I was happy to help, and very happy when they asked me to contribute something again this year. Every year they follow a theme for the day which luckily for me was "You are Kind and Sweet", very handy when I will be making sweet treats for them; I'm already half way to finding a design. My first thoughts was of course those sweetheart candies with sayings on them. In my day they said things like "Call Me" and "U R Great", which now have been modernised from "Fax Me" to "Text Me" or "FB Me"... I can't keep up! For my pops however, I stuck with the traditional wording which worked within the theme for the school also, and they all read "U R Sweet". I loved all the colours together and the hearts were a really pretty shape. Hopefully they brought some smiles to some special teachers and staff members!
