Our Gingerbread House

Me and the girls put together our gingerbread house this morning. Ryan, at 13, is too old for such things. Well, he's the one that missed out, because we had fun!
I learned the hard way that once you have it together, leave it alone!
Boo dropped a piece of candy into the tray, and I lifted the house so she could get it.
It fell apart in my hands!
We got it back together, and this is how it ended up.



Not too bad, huh?

What a great job I love it! I made ginger bread cookies. I want to make a garland with them on it. This batch was a test run. I will need to make a couple more batches and frost too. I hope my cookies turn out as good as you house.

Not bad? It's awesome! I WISH I took pictures of my first (and only) FAILED attempt at a gingerbread house, a few years ago. They are so much harder then they look! You guys did great!

Hey there!

I'm kinda dropping by randomly (& kinda dropping by to hit you with my EC) to tell you about this new selling site I found. It's called ArtFire.com & you should check it out.

It's still really, really new (still in beta) but it's heading in a really good direction! They are already buying advertising online & in print magazines to bring in traffic to the site. (It's already got almost as much traffic as indiepublic.com)

It's got stats for shop views so you know where your customers are coming from! I know! Gasp! Faint! Right? hehe

& it's just $7 a month (for the first 5000 artists) to list & sell as much as you can FOREVER. $7 a month no matter what! I signed up on that alone! haha

Anyhoo, it is new so there aren't zillions of people using it (which is good & bad) but I thought you might want to take a look at it. With the ad campaign they are working on kicking in soon (or so they are saying), I think it's going to be a good place to start listing!

If you sign up, give me a yell & let me know what you think!

Always,
Amy

P.S. I've been jonings for some gingerbread house goodness. I think you pushed me over the edge!!
