Tear-Free Gingerbread Building

Even with a kit in hand, many of you can attest that building a gingerbread house can be a frustrating and tear evoking task, especially when the kids are eagerly waiting to adorn it with editable windows and sugar-covered roofs. Through the years (and trial and error) I came up with a tear-free solution to building our beautiful brown baked houses, and it all comes down to planning.

Advent “Wreath” in a Box

One of my favorite observances this time of year is the Advent wreath and the weekly candle lighting that leads up to Christmas. This year I decided to incorporate this idea into our home and created an Advent “wreath” in a box.

    Getting Crafty with the SG Scrap Squad

    During this time of cramped quarters and limited outings, I have managed to sneak down to my craft room and get creative from time to time. One of my favorite sources of inspiration has been Scrapbook Generation's weekend mini crops on the SG Scrap Squad Facebook group. These crops are full of great challenges, discussion questions and fun prizes.

    My Corona Life: Bewitched by Betty & Haunted by Homer

    How are your stay-at-home days going? I can’t lie, y’all. A month into this thing and I’m seriously starting to feel like I'm under house arrest more days than not. Our restrictions here were extended into May, which I thought would and should happen, but without a specific end date in sight I feel afloat in some surreal limbo life. I don’t do limbo well! That being said, I’m learning to control what I can, accept some things that I can’t and take out the rest on my refrigerator. Good thing we aren’t closing in on bathing suit season. Ugh!
