ornaments and hot chocolate

my girl friends and i have been getting together once a month to hang out and be silly. this month, i hosted a handmade ornament exchange and i hope it becomes an annual tradition. the group includes all levels of creative talent and i think all the ornaments turned out amazing. plus i am shocked we got such a great photo of the 5 of us! thanks honey :)

if anyone is interested in the stockings in the background. email me and i will get you in line for my 2009 holiday orders. i will post more detailed photos of them soon.

since it is the holiday season, i thought peppermint hot chocolate would be a great drink instead of wine. i used milk, hot chocolate mix and peppermint schnapps – they were so good! i think i will be having this every evening until christmas.
