So, I'm not entirely sure what I was thinking when I fell in love with my friend Pam's Valentine idea. Obviously, I forgot her comment: "You gotta use a candy that you don't love more than life itself, or you're just asking for it be be refilled constantly."
Obviously, I forgot the "audience" at my house -- since this jar wasn't even out on display 48 hours before somebody wanted to empty it. [In reality, 48 hours is probably some kind of record around here!]
That person shall remain nameless, but suffice it to say that he[?] was told it was there for decorative purposes. I really didn't think that these little cinnamon red-hot things would be very tempting.
Obviously, I am not the right person to ask. Obviously.
The good news is that I am pretty sure he[?] heard the edge to my voice, shook in his[?] boots, and returned the jar to the tabletop, unopened. Pretty sure. Or, you know... umm, not.
Either way, I have learned my lesson.
When crafting with candy, KNOW YOUR AUDIENCE.
