Halloween Treat Blog Challenge

Another week and another NECTAR Team Blog Challenge!  This week I sent you in search of that classic Halloween Treat, Candy Corn.  I was amazed when I searched "candy corn" and found 11,000+ items in the handmade category alone.  There were primitive pieces, wreaths, costumes, glassware....the list is almost endless.

To view this weeks Blog Challenge, click on the NECTAR Challenges page!

May you add Candy Corn to you Halloween Treat list:)

This weeks Blog Challenge involved NECTAR Team leader, Julia of  JPJbeaded. Julia was not able to participate as this weeks featured NECTAR Team leader so I thought it would be fun for each of us to go into her shop, browse around, and favorite an item. 

To see the JPJbeaded items chosen go to the NECTAR Challenges page.

Let's Meet WinterCherryFarm

Today we meet our next NECTAR Team leader, Heather, as she introduces us to her shop, WinterCherry Farm.

Hi everyone!  My name is Heather and I grew up in rural, southern Maine, moving to Alaska when I finished graduate school. I didn't really appreciate Maine until I had lived away a decade or more. Not only is Maine beautiful with the coast and the woods, but it is close to Boston, NYC, and amazing, scenic, historic New England towns.
