  • Candy Art

    We've discovered some very unique, candy-made, Mosaic Portraits created by Jason Mecier.

  • Gummy Bear Stop Motion Videos

    I'm pretty fond of Gummy Bears, just like a lot of other folks. This is especially true with the explosion of shapes, colors and sizes that are now available.

  • Rock Candy Centerpieces

    My daughter’s Bat Mitzvah was last week. If you’ve been to one of these, you have probably seen that the décor is usually based on a theme.  When given a choice, a lot of kids will pick crazy themes for their parties.

Saint Patrick lived from 385–461 AD, and he is undoubtedly the most renowned patron saints of Ireland. He is known for driving the snakes out of Ireland, but that is really a myth since there were (and still are) no snakes in Ireland.
