So instead of a gift tonight, I'm sharing some of the joys of my Christmas.
I made new ornaments for my paper Christmas tree. Each one relates to a major happiness from 2011.
I made a llama truffle army. They look like they opened the Ark of the Covenant, but I've been assured they are still delicious, despite the fact that my fine motor coordination makes it look like they were made by toddlers. They are peppermint brownie truffles, for the record. This is likely my last foray into making these fucking things ever again, unless I somehow become bionic and regain said lost coordination.
And because of AMAZING AWESOME reader Sarah T., I was able to send out small packages of goodies to several of my friends, which did the trick to lift my humbug grump. Thanks, Sarah!
And my nephew is entirely adorable, which always helps. Here he is, pretending to be The Bloggess.
