It is officially Candy Coated! and November News

  A Super Special Announcement . . . It is Official 

Adjust your address books dear friends and colleagues!

It is with great pleasure, and with a renewed sense of freedom, to announce that the given name of Candy Depew has officially changed to Candy Coated

Celebration of this unique milestone in life will carry throughout the month, extending into December with a proper party. Congratulatory messages are very much welcomed and genuinely encouraged, as are future celebratory lunch/dinner date invitations (wink ;).

 Quick look at last month's happenings . . .

Meow!  "Cat Walk" Fashion Show...
a public park central promenade became a fashion show runway for a moment. Resplendent of models adorned in one-of-a-kind garments full of bright hues, contrasting beautifully with that fall day's over cast sky.  Perfectly painted into the likeness of tigers and kitty cats, models strutted their stuff: evening wear, leggings, capes, dresses and hoodies.  Purring and hissing while unfurling the piece de resistance, a 30 yard patch worked skirt, the kitties turned the park into a mini outdoor paparazzi photo shoot for a quarter of an hour... more photos of the pieces in the collection will be posted on the  website as it gets refreshed over the next month!

A special thanks to all that partnered and participated, it could not have been done without you!
