And the winner is...

US!  Okay, maybe just the self declared winner.  We have friends who have a gingerbread making night, and we are lucky enough to get invited.  It was sooo much fun.  This is our creation, a cute little town scape.  D made a cute little pick up and car.  Everyone else pitched in with architecture and details.  Some of the other creations were... A dairy complete with a flush tank,  a grinch scene, BYU stadium,  a church with a tiny nativity, and a few traditions homes, one with artillery.  What a great way to spend the evening.

Good things:
1.  Christmas time and the magic (or spirit) it brings.
2.  Creativity

3.  friends who do all the hard work (of making the gingerbread)

I love it!

Browsing on pinterest I saw an adorable tree skirt that I just had to try. As usual, I adapted it too make it mine, and this is what I came up with.  I love the way it turned out.  I have been wanting a tree skirt for about twenty years now.   I can finally cross it off my list.

Good things:
1. crossing something off my list.
2. a roll hemmer
3. something new
