Surrender, Dorothy: Reviews Disclosure

  • This is a review blog, not a personal blog. Marketers send me products for free, and I agree to review them. Sometimes they offer me a small fee for my time. This fee covers my time, but it doesn't buy a positive review. My time is valuable, and there are many other income-producing ways I could spend it. I choose to do reviews because I believe they have value in our culture. I don't review food anymore. I rarely review music. I don't review games unless they are educational. I mostly focus on books (picture and adult), clothing (baby through adult), services, tools, and home improvement items. I don't print the press release. Please do not send me a press release. If I review your product, it might not be favorable. I don't return review products because I don't have an assistant to drive them to the post office and stand in that crazy line. I'm not a big corporation; I'm just a normal person with a limited amount of time. Please, readers, do not be confused: I did not buy anything you are reading about here. I didn't just stumble into Wal-Mart and say, "OMG, I MUST HAVE IT." Somebody sent it to me and asked me to write about it. So I did. I can be reached at

Wow, you're committed. I would've probably opened a bottle of wine and eaten the chocolate straight. 6 hours? Day-um!


Holy cow. Remind me to get myself to the local chocolatier to spend $32 a pound on truffles, because there is no way in hell I'm spending 6 hours and messing up the kitchen to make them.

Yours are adorable, though, in a lumpy misshapen kind of way.


Oh. My. God. SIX HOURS. Never in a million years would have the fortitude to complete that activity. I would have been forced to take my daughter out for ice cream instead.


This post made me LMAO. That is all. XXOO


Wow. Just wow. Six hours is crazy.

Not a project that I would take on, because it would probably end with a very frazzled me and possibly a partially burned down kitchen. I'm totally impressed that you got all that chocolate tempered.

I liked the bunny that let the bear do his makeup. And the chocolate looks like it is very that is a plus.

Useful tutorial very inspiring. You are very patient to spend 6 hours making truffles. Like that you put your imagination and create those little animal truffles :D So cute


How many of those hours did Angel spend "helping?"
Patience of a saint. Crazy like a fox. AND you have mad candy decorating skillz. :)

Thanks composing! The reason for the report is always to document your lifetime and deliver your own own thoughts. Some notions are usually special with me but definitely distinctive. That which you very long for to offer for the fashionable society, I believe I've already been identified that. So long as many of us do effectively and imagine that.
