Reverb10 – Make

December 6 – Make. What was the last thing you made? What materials did you use? Is there something you want to make, but you need to clear some time for it? (Author: Gretchen Rubin)

This year I have made more of an effort to make things and Christmas has given me a great opportunity. I can’t REALLY blog about the gifts I have made though as they are for people who read this blog. But I have had a great time making them, designing the packaging, and figuring out how to finally wrap them.

One of the gifts that I have made, but won’t be going to my 3D friends who read this space, are Truffles {and you won’t be getting them as you’re getting something that I think is way better!}

The housemate and I made them for the girls we used to work with. They came to visit this weekend and we gave them the truffles and one of the other gifts we’d made and it was amazing – they loved them because of the handmade nature.

The truffles were a recipe from the latest Sweet Paul magazine and created out of cream, cocoa and amaretto {although we got WAY more than 30 of them}.

I am not a truffle fan – they’re just not my thing, but my housemate tells me they are nice – I just think they’re far too chocolatey……. 


  1. i would love to try and make all my gifts, but i am pretty sure there is nothing i could manufacture that my brother would like – unless i start brewing beers…..
