This week Larry had a work related function at another office. This office does a Christmas gift thing where everyone brings in a homemade ornament, and then they have a silent auction and all the proceeds go to the Vanessa Behan Crisis Nursery. Kind of a good idea. So, I spent Tuesday searching for ornament ideas that weren't dumb or made with pipe cleaners (those never look as good as the pictures!). Finally I made this one (pictured below) and a Swedish heart out of similar paper. We put some Dove chocolates in the Swedish heart and a note that explained them (thanks mom, for teaching me about these). To my UTTER shock the Swedish heart won the best in show award! (Trying and failing to think of the quote from a Christmas Story where the dad wins a very special award and it is the leg lamp - Utah, what is it?????) I thought this ball was cooler, but it just shows, chocolate makes everything better
That's right, TWENTY little circles all cut and folded just so and glued together. Just call me Martha. Martha Molly Mormon Stewart No Insider Trading Thank You. I thought hanging it on a wire with beads at both ends was a great touch. If I had had more time, I would have sprayed it with glitter spray.
