Just last weekend, Su had made an adorable little angel and a box full of Christmas trees as contribution to a charity event.I would love to speak more about the event; but unfortunately I have nothing much to say.
Fact was; I didn't make it to the booth where my cookies were displayed. I barely had my foot in the event. My self invitation into the fenced off entry was bluntly rejected. *laughs*
Many grateful "thank you's" were said... and after having called up the next day; I found out that they had made a big sum of money from the charities they were contributing to. Which ones? I wasn't told either. hmm..I am very grateful to Melissa who had alerted me about several charities for this season and I was incredibly excited to jump straight into participating. After a rushed attempt at baking 50+ cookies and a phone call later, I was casually welcomed to turn up as a contributor several hours before the event began. I was overjoyed.
On Sunday; having handed over my hours of laboriously crafted cookies; I was pretty much left to stand at the entrance. *pout* I wanted to at least have gone in to see them being priced too!
I probably could have stayed outside for 2 hours and eventually bought tickets for Jo and I to get in as guests; but I thought what the heck~; what difference was it going to make, paying for parking was killing me and it wasn't as if I was being treated as 'help' anyway..I felt more like 'fake-smile baggage'. Baggage with pretty cookies of course! *grin*
I had a couple of Christmas trees down my tummy as I iced and packed them. The broken one's need to be taken are of no? *giggle* So yum! My sugar-loving Jo was happy to be fed trees too! I was secretly wishing I broke more than just a couple. heheAt least I was told the kids at the event loved the trees. I bet many of them were on sugar-highs after a cookie or two. It's never a holiday without delicious sugary cookies! Puts me in the mood... hehe
Look! Xmas pizza trees!Not a bad idea eh? *grin*
