Thanks to all for the wonderful fun blogs!


Hey Terry, if you really want one of those ginger bread houses, I believe that some of them are being auctioned off to benefit the Eastman House restoration project. But it would be really fun to make one yourself. Imagine one with .. oh the possibilities!

Wow, great houses. Have certainly made a few of those in my time....nothing quite so elaborate. Thanks for everything.


Thanks so much for the hop. I will miss you all tomorrow!


Oh wow how very creative! It's been such a fun blog hop. Thanks for all your fun and creative posts. I've enjoyed visiting everyone every morning. Have a Happy Thanksgiving!


Have enjoyed this wonderful blog hop and getting to know more about you. All of you ladies are so talented. Thank you all.


This has been a lot of fun. I appreciate you ladies doing this and the thought and time that went into it. It's wonderful for those of us that can't do a driving shop hop because of time or just whatever reason. Thank you.


Wow, love the monkey condo. But I think my favorite was the girl scout peace village! Thanks for doing the blog hop. It has been wonderfully fun!


LOVE those gingerbread houses - that's one of my favorite Christmas memories - the smell of that gingerbread as you entered the house was fantastic!


i have got to say how much i have enjoyed this blog hop. i have seen so many cool projects and am now aware of some new to me designers whose projects i love. i have laughed at some of the stories and been touched by others. thanks to everyone who have participated. :-)


Thank you for sharing the gingerbread houses! I have always admired them but have never made one. Maybe when I retire (lol)

This is just not right -sharing such beautiful edibles!! I think I need to refill my cup of coffee and get a donut...LOL

Thank you for sharing these fun gingerbread house, bedrooms, etc. I loved the photos.


I hope Ms. Rosebud's Cottage is looking at these houses. I love the ones the scouts did. *S*

Thx so much for being a part of this great hop. It was a wonderful way to start off the season.


Loved those gingerbread houses. My Mom was a pastry chef and did gingerbread house workshops for years. The trick is to use a bread mixer thingy when combining the ingredients, then use sufficient flour (but not too much - which is not easy to do without Mom over my shoulder guiding me now!), rolling out the dough to a little less than 1/4 inch, cutting the pieces and then putting them on those cooking mats they now sell. Most of the time you end up with nice flat, non-cracked pieces. Mom would "paint" cracked ones with royal icing, which was really pretty as well. The other fun thing is to leave the door open a crack and fill the house with candy just before you put on the roof.

Thanks so much for the "Blog Hop". It was wonderful getting know a little about each of you and what you all do in the design world. I haven't actually made anything yet but do have several favorites that I will be sure to make .....probably not before Christmas though..LOL



Just wanted to tell you that I have enjoyed the blog hop. But I also wanted you to know that I have made your Lessons From Mama sampler once, and am going to make it again. I really enjoyed making that pattern and it is really one of the prettiest sampler patterns I have seen.


Thank you so much for the blog hop! It has been wonderful! I have so enjoyed the memories and the patterns. You ladies are great!!!


Thanks for the blog hop and love the gingerbread houses.....what is the puzzle? So cute.


Thanks for the blog hop! It's been so much fun!


What gorgeous houses...I would have loved to seen all of them. Thank you for sharing all of your traditions and memories with us hoppers. It was a hoot reading them!

Margi Borck

Oh my! All those gingerbread creations are amazing! I'd have gotten so hungry LOL Thanks for all the great posts during the hop!

Thanks for sharing pics of those beautiful gingerbread houses! Somehow ours never turns out that fancy. Of course, we use kits and limit ourselves to what is in the box!
