Christmas Craze

Oh boy was this Christmas crazy. Let me paint you a picture - my roommate got gallstones, our kitchen was drowning in red & green sprinkles and christmas cookies, UPS gouged me with their shipping prices, my car died, and 50 gajillion people were visiting from out of town. Don't worry - roommate is out of the hospital, I filled every Christmas order with grace & precision, my landlord's giant pick up truck revived my dinky car, and I got to see my out of town friends...but UPS still gouged me. Phew!

Here's what it looked like: spiced molasses, rice krispy 'trees', oreo truffles, chocolate peppermint bars, toffee bars with almonds & dried cranberries, sugar cookies, snickerdoodles, and buckeyes.

One thing that helped me get through the stressful moments were my customers. Too bad I forgot to take happy photos of a majority of them...p.s. I'm going to be making a happy customers page on my NEW WEBSITE, so if you would like to become a celebrity, send in your photo to mixingbowlchicago@gmail.com

Sean became so excited his head turned into a christmas cookie tin.

Stay tuned for some new projects - Valentine's Day and a month long fundraiser with Mercy For Animals!
