In an effort to get out of the Bah-Humbug funk that has continued to have a stranglehold on me, I went through some old photos and came across these gingerbread houses, some of which I made with one of my sisters a couple of years ago. I gave them to my bosses as gifts. While I may no longer have bosses to build houses for like these, I kind of wish I’d put one together this year, though no doubt, a certain Ninja Elf who shall remain nameless would try to nosh on them! Are they fun to put together? You bet-cha! Just be forewarned…they do take some assembly time (what was I thinking making a tile-roof of sliced almonds?!) and you WILL be sweeping up candy pieces over the next 6 weeks because those little balls bounce everywhere! But all in all, not a bad first effort. While I may not be much of an architect, who can resist cute gingerbread houses to amp up the decorations?
What creative things do you make to get into the ‘howliday’ spirit?
Live, love, bark! <3
