Cardboard Gingerbread Men

I saw a wonderful wreath on Martha Stewart's website made out of real Gingerbread Men but I didn't want to hang real edible decorations on the door, not with MY kids (and dog) around so I made it out of cardboard instead and used 3D paint for the icing and raisins.

I will get a proper, nice red tartan ribbon for it, that is all I have to hang it with at the moment.

The Tree

If we were hamsters, and our house was their cage, the RSPCA would come round and rescue us for being overcrowded. Seeing as we are just humans however we just have to lump it.

So, lack of space means no space for a tree, not even our usual slimline artificial one so I decided to make one instead.

Its made from MDF, it's painted BRIGHT green, the baubles hang inside sawn out holes and it looks fabulous and I LOVE it!!!

Still here

Do not fear, I'm still here!

I have been doing a LOT of crafting for the past couple of weeks but it is all for my Secret Santa so I can't show any of it until after Christmas in case she sees it!

I am however making a fabulous Christmas tree which I designed and my husband is doing all the hard manly stuff with the holesaw and jigsaw but I shall be uploading the photos of it's various stages of development tomorrow and hopefully it's completion!
