Merry Christmas

I still am not fully better, but I just wanted to wish my friends a very wonderful holiday. I hope to be back in full action for the new year. Here is a cute Christmas tree that was very easy to make. I used a cylinder shaped styrofoam cone, scrapbook paper cut into strips, and straight pins. I then dusted the loops with some sparkly modge podge. Finally, I screwed into the top a star that I looped some ribbon on.

Have a wonderful Christmas filled with family, friends, and good times =)

Hey Loreen! First of all, this is beautiful! Second, those cake balls took forever to make. Well, it seemed like it anyhow. In reality maybe it was only 2 hours or so. I made my cake the night before, then broke it the day I was going to make them and mixed it with the frosting and rolled them into balls. If you stick the balls in the freezer to chill (about 30 mins) they work better, then you just have however long it takes to dip them.

Let me know how they turn out!
