A Busy Life(Gingerbread Ornaments)

So much has happened.

Which is why I haven't blogged. At all.

I have a pocket of mixed feelings about blogging, lately. Work is so busy and I feel so fulfilled. But when it's not, and I blog, I feel fulfilled. Blogging fills the empty space, but when I make a committment to blog daily, and I don't, I feel empty. But if I don't blog, it's because I've just spent myself a 10-hour day at work and all I want to do is curl up with my dog and watch episodes of "Switched at Birth" on Netflix.

It's a good show. If you haven't seen it, it's really good.

I want to write about everything that's been going on in my life. I really do. But I have work in half an hour. So here's a quick holiday tip:

Take the gingerbread dough you have leftover from building gingerbread houses and use them to make Christmas ornaments. They smell great, the oven heats up your house, and you get to have a lot of fun with making them.
I had a snowflake cookie cutter that worked great

Use royal icing to pipe anything!

Then tie with dental floss for a minty smell!

Happy holidays, everyone! And don't be a dick and say "No, it's Merry Christmas." When we say "Happy Holidays" its to acknowledge that there are literally 4-times as many holidays as Christmas this time of year. It's not a "war on Christmas," you pricks. It's a "Hey, I'm trying to be aware that you might celebrate something else." It's a "Hey, I'm not ignoring the entire Jewish/Islamic-Arab/African/Wiccan-Pagan/Atheist population" blanket greeting.

Hey, it wouldn't be a blog post if I didn't have a tiny grievance to share.
