Where am I?

What the hell? My only post in over a month is me trying to open a bottle of champaign with an oven mitt...well you may think that I've hit rock bottom, but here's the skinny - I haven't been posting my adventures in baking and crafting because I've been working on some top secret Christmas presents. I love Christmas...probably too much. I always go overboard. I force myself to make a SMALL list of people that I would like to make Christmas presents for. This list then explodes to include every freakin' person I've ever met...doesn't matter where they live, my heart will pay the asinine postage fee and go through the pain in the ass adventure of finding the right size box. Seriously, I love this stuff.

Since I love Christmas so much, I have to make my house look like Christmas spewed all over it. This begins with a lovely set of handmade ornaments! Evan and I always scout out the Martha Stewart page for holiday crafts and found this awesome set of easy ornaments to make at home.
These ornaments are made out of 1 cup of cinnamon, a bunch of craft glue, water, and some glam metallic craft paint and sequins. They take a bit of time to make, but they smell really good and they're really fun to decorate, especially if Christmas records are involved!
