6. making the world's ugliest oreo truffles, ever.

i can hear you: oh alena, those aren't so bad.

yes they are. i even tried putting them in tiny little paper bonbon tutus to cutify them up. but then they just looked like mini monsters in ruffles.
fail.

just look at this one:

or this one:

but the roommates said they tasted ok, so whatever. beauty is only skin deep right? and if you're full of oreo truffle goodness, then you can be as ugly as you please.

Everything looks wonderful, even the truffles! Best wishes for a super successful sale. And a big BOO to 16 degree weather. It's been downright balmy in Philly lately. Come back! :)

:( I read this post a day too late or I could have visited you at the MCBA sale! Can I buy a pendant from you anyway some other time? (or did you sell them all?!)
