Putting the G in Gingerbread…

I made myself promise to not work tonight. Most of you know I have a full-time job in the typical hours of 8 to 5. But I then come home and work some more… well, enough is enough. I took tonight off so that my husband and I could put our hunger aside…and creativity to use.

We bought two gingerbread house kits and went to town.
But I got distracted by the pretty colors.
(I accidentally loaded them at a poorer quality then usual, so they aren’t super sharp. You’ll get the idea though..)

While Neil was hard at work….

Now, let me preface this by saying, I have never before tried such a feat. In fact, just today, my mom…in a rueful e-mail…indicated how she had always wanted to make a gingerbread house with us kids. But time got away… so this one is for you, Mama!

And I must say, I had some fun making the Darbi G-bread Manor. I have no idea from where I got my color scheme!! Any ideas?

I was quite proud that my sloppiness with the icing on the roof resulted in real-esque icicles hanging!

so yeah, basically, if I had a studio made out of candy, this would totally be it. I know it looks like an “O” and “G” …but it is a “D”… the candy was sooooo gosh darn hard…

I was very proud of Neil for doing it with me. He did such a great job. He described the roof as “avant-garde.” Haha.
