'Twas a great evening last Sunday when the gals and I gathered to celebrate the following three c's: cookies, crafts, and Christmas. We went wild with glitter, decorating glass vases and ornaments, and we even transformed plastic horses (leftover from my wedding) into sparkly ornaments. We stuck skewers from the grocery store into pom pom balls to make drink stirrers for New Year's Eve, and stamped craft paper to make our own wrapping paper and gift tags. All the while, we munched on the most decadent cookies ever (I made this recipe for bacon oatmeal raisin cookies). What did I learn from this night? The more—in this case of crafts, cookies, and glitter—the merrier.
