I love the little happy lights bunting!

I have out of town company, so I'm going to be a little scarce this weekend. I'll be doing everyone's feedback on Sunday. IF you need your feedback before then, please pm both me and cackle, and one of us will get to it asap.  Smiley

I think the gallery's going to be filling up during the next couple of days!

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).

Wow cackle!  Wow!  Omg, wow!  First off, those cookies are BEAUTIFUL!  I would never eat them, I would just stare happily out of them, absorbing the sugar via osmosis.  And that gingerbread house!  WHAT?!  That is AMAZING!  Oh cackle, you out did yourself, lady!  Beautiful work!

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

Cackle, you just reminded me that cooking is a very short-lived form of art. What a great idea to make it last longer by creating a Polymer Clay gingerbread house. And the cookies look as fabulous as the house.

Rubylynns, charming Holiday light bunting.
