  1. I've loved making the cinnamon ornaments for years now, but we can't make them anymore - discovered that one of our daughters gets a horrible case of hives when she is around larger quantities of cinnamon like that. Fortunately, she can still cook with cinnamon, and can eat cinnamon in recipes. But just not to make these wonderful smelling ornaments! Julieanne https://www.JoyInOurJourney.com
