X-Mas Stuff

I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday. I certainly did. Here are some handmade gifts I made for Christmas this year. It was super fun and relaxing. I bought the retro santa stickers at Hallmark two years ago and didn't want to waste them by sticking them on some card that would get thrown out, so I made ornaments out of them and I love the way they turned out.

I made bookmarks for my Book Club too. I used Martha Stewart scrapbooking paper on one side and one the other I carved a stamp with a bamboo design. I think they turned out pretty cool.

I also made treats for everyone. These are Oreo Truffles. They are so yummy. I got the recipe from (arrgh for some reason I can insert a hyperlink.)
I changed the recipe slightly by adding different flavors of Oreos and instead of white chocolate I used dark. They are super easy to make (no baking involved.) There is a lot of crushing of Oreos.
