So let me guess, you have never made Cheese straws or truffles again. Am I right?

You are half-right. I have made truffles VERY sporadically in the intervening 14 years.

I used to make the homemade truffles until we moved out here. 70 degree heat and chocolate are not a good combination.
This is my calling card or link"Whittereronautism"until blogger comments get themselves sorted out.

My mom and I tried to make rum truffles once when I was in high school. She, not being a drinker (me being one but not able to tell her so for fear of getting busted, given I was all of 16 or 17 at the time), bought and made them with Bacardi 151. Yeah. Those were some DAMN GOOD truffles. Of course, Mom ate two of them and pretty much passed out cold. Good times.

I hereby grant you Official Exemption from hand made christmas, on account of the fact that I just laughed so hard.
The real question is, how many of these people will be doing the handmade thing NEXT christmas. I'll be interested to see.

Ick. I would totally hate some hand-made gift. Unless it was food. Truffles, maybe. Cheese straws not so much. Brownies with crushed peppermint sticks? Now you're talking.

I would like a handmade Kelly bag. It's in baby pink and a picture of it hangs right next to the mirror in which I apply my lipstick.
So I may admire it.
I don't think Husb is going to fork out the $20k for one though...

My husband and I made a hamper once. When I say MADE, I mean purchased the goods and wrapped them in a basket. That was exhausting enough.
I'm sure all those handmade pledgers have their children all working their production lines for them. How else do they churn out so much unbelievably gorgeous stuff in such a short space of time?

I'm deeply jealous of the ability to turn out gorgeous looking stuff.
