11  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Re: Gingerbread House on: December 09, 2012 11:22:48 AM
As the delighted recipient of this little house, I can only tell you that the details are even more impressive in person.

Oh boy -- I recently considered doing an exploding box for a project (thought it could be a fun counting-teaching tool for tiny kids), but nothing, nothing as beautiful as this came close to crossing my mind.

I love that you put it on a stand and I love the tassels and the top knob... just completely lovely.

Love that yoopidou Santa stuffie -- with the stripey mittens and twirly puff on his cap!

And all the penguiny goodness is just freakin' cute.  Love the little sweater on the felty.

As to the ceramic santa... well, I've been thinking I should visit Racky... and surely she won't check through my luggage before I leave. *bwahahahahahahaha*

Am I seeing that right -- an advent calendar with crafty supplies in each day? Flipping brilliant.

As to all the really lovely wrapping paper everyone used... well, cackle, your bits 'n bobs are wrapped in sheets of crumpled computer paper, then slapped together with packing tape and cat hair.  Cheesy

Having just now looked through the gallery (I've been a bit out of commission of late), there are some truly wonderful items here!

Love the Christmas tree of felt circles, WANT the doggy painting (and I don't even have a dog), think patchwork turtle is just so fabulously squishable, plan on looking for cupcake liners and totally stealing that tree idea, all the woodland stuffies in their mitten is just too frickin' cute, and oh my, there's that awesome gingerbread house... owait, that's already mine... squeeee!

The direct tracking on my package to Cackle hasn't updated since Dec 5 (the day I shipped -- yes, in spite of my good intentions, I "shipped late with communication!" lol).

According to tracking, the package is still in the town it was shipped from.  I choose to believe that's not the case.

The people at the counter in my local post office are wonderful. Unfortunately, not a one of them will agree to hand deliver my packages.  Cheesy

First off, those cookies are BEAUTIFUL!  I would never eat them, I would just stare happily out of them, absorbing the sugar via osmosis.

You only say that because you can't smell them.  Cheesy

Early on in my Craftster life, I fell in love with Cackle's Gingerbread Houses (if you check my profile, you'll see they're one of my faves -- have been since about 10 seconds after I first saw them): http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=365869.msg4300187#msg4300187

Little did I know I would one day be the gleeful owner Cackle Gingerbready Goodness.

First the four three huge and soooo beautiful gingerbread cookies. This pic does not even come close to doing justice to Cackle's beautiful piping work. As someone who has done piping on cakes, I cannot get over the details and loveliness.



As to the fourth cookie (oh yes, the package arrived with four cookies)... well, the package got here late in the day and it's impossible to take good pics at night, so pics had to wait until morning and there were two tree cookies and well, one of the tree cookies somehow got out of the bag and then.

mmmm, gingerbread...

The cookies are not only beautiful, they are the yummiest -- both the most awesome gingerbread recipe and the icing is way better than any of my Royal Icing recipes, lol!

I did share the cookies with Mr. Jivvy (who is also in awe of their beautimousness). 

I tell you this so you won't think badly of me when I tell you that all of the ginormous cookies have already gone on to fulfill their Christmas destiny.  Cheesy

And then Cackle transferred her gingerbready skills to polymer clay. This is the sweetest little house with just fantastic details. 

Mr. Jivvy suggested that Cackle must have better tools for working with polymer clay than I do. He was 100% serious (<3), but... Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy

I told him I think she has better hands and brain.

There's a little tea-light inside, but I could not get a picture that showed off the glowy, so you'll just have to trust me.






Look at all those little shingles!  And there's such a marvelous contrast between the 100% perfectly flat walls and the bendy curly shingles.



I <3 it with all my <3, thank you, Cackle.  This little house is the first Christmas piece to go on my mantle this year -- a place of Christmas Honor that all my decorations aspire to (and only a few achieve).

Oh, I'm shipping on Monday.

*glances at big Ho*

I might be making use of the 24 hour post office at the airport, but I'm shipping on Monday.  Cheesy

OT: @Birdbones *kisses*

Contrary to how it appears, I have not fallen off the face of the earth.  I have been hammered by some foul never-ending plague from hell (yes, I've been sick since before, let's see, HALLOW-FRICKIN-WEEN, but I am still on target for shipping Monday.

*glances at Big Ho*

Mostly on target. Maybe a little behind.

I gotta go.
