Nance at The Paper Players # 166 has a Halloween treat/card challenge this week. I pulled up the good old Hershey Bar slider for my entry. Funny story…I had in my mind to make this but could not remember the dimensions when I made one last Christmas. I ran up to the pantry to find that one Hershey bar I saw earlier in the week but could not find it. I asked my 26 year old son who is with us again after law school- Yea! We found out last week that he passed the Florida Bar Exam!! Anyway, he is on a health kick eating fish and veggies every day. Well, I proceeded to ask him if he ate my Hershey bar. He said, “Well, yeah…sorry…you should have known better to leave chocolate around me! You know you can buy another one, Mom.” I said, I just needed the measurements- maybe the wrapper is still in the garbage can? He walked over into the family room and bent down by the coffee table and said, “Ummm, I kinda just put it under the coffee table by accident.” Seriously, son? At least I now I had the wrapper to make my holder and got my chocolate bar the next day!
