Thanksgiving Cornucopia Craft

Need a quick gift for a coworker/family friend this Thanksgiving?  Here's a cute one I found on Pinterest:


My sister tried it this weekend.  After the first few tries she got 9 good ones.  We found the waffle cones at Food-4-Less and she used Reeses Pieces instead of M&M's, but you could stuff it with just about anything!!!

Have a Happy Thanksgiving and we hope to see you selling or shopping at The Holiday Hit List on Sunday, December 8th.

We're still accepting applications for non-jewelry vendors.  Sign up for our vendor newsletter to find out how!

For those of you wanting to do something this week to entertain yourself and maybe your kids, here’s a great puppet show created for all ages called Monsters Under the Bed! Wanna look? I sure do!!! Don't be a monster and miss this or the Hit List!!!!

 “What was that? . . . Did you feel it? . . . I think something is moving under there!!!! . . Wanna look? Me neither!!! . Do you hear that? I hear something like a rock band!  . . . What could it be? Let’s look together on the count of three . . . One . . . Two . . . Three! Look!!!!!  . . . What is that??????”

Set off with Tommy on his great adventure as he checks out what is under that bed of his. Monsters Under the Bed is back with those whimsical, musical creatures hiding out under Tommy’s bed ready to teach him the lesson that not all monsters are bad.

Monster’s Under the Bed produced by Julie Otto’s Julie’s Puppet Creations will capture the imaginations of all as they travel under the bed with Tommy to watch a monster talent contest and to find out where that “Big” judge is hiding. Performed at the Marie Hitchcock Puppet Theater in Balboa Park this show is a full stage blacklight puppet show with a team of puppeteers breathing life into both marionettes and large format puppets to make this story come alive.
