Gingerbread House Party(better late than never) +vote

Yes, it's January 8th, and it has been over a month since I had my annual gingerbread house decorating party, I totally forgot to share it with you !  In my defense, December was a very busy month and we had lots going on, still do... 
So, to be honest, I've been short for words lately, I don't have much to say and what I do say seems to come out in a jumbled mess and I sound incoherant at times(maybe my thoughts are just in a chaotic mess).  Don't know whether I'm coming or going at times.  
Anyway, I planned on doing something different this year for the party, I had grand ideas of making pretzel log homes. Ya, that didn't turn out well.  So two days before the party I went down to the basement and sawed wood door hanger houses that we would then paint at the party. I think it went over well, and now everyone has something they can keep for years...

 I had small turn out this year, only 6 friends.  I promised I would put their houses on and let you judge which one you like best.  So leave a comment with the number of your choice....

House #1

House #2 

House #3 

House #4 

House #5 

House #6 

Thank you all for putting up with my haphazard posting, I really don't know what is wrong with me lately.



  1. They all turned out great, love them and the creativity! So hard to choose just one, but I vote for #6. :)

    Hang in there Tiff. **sends hugs**


  2. Love them all Tiff but I'm going for no 4 as I love it's "lacy" look

  3. Just thought I'd add to my message,it's a super idea and I might just pinch it next Christmas and make them with the grandkids.xx

  4. OK I am torn, by the way they are well good but I like #2 and #6... Love log cabins but then the real effect gingerbread house would be #2..... So #2 it is for me b😀. Great job ladies on all!!!!


  5. It looks like such a great party. #4 for me! Depression might be setting in. My husband was told by the Dr. to use his light box. Maybe that might help you too? Bless you and your family for a great new year. I love your family photo of the children coming down the stairs! So sweet.
