    That is a nice coop! Can you recreate it in gingerbread for the contest? That would be fun to see!

    I burned a finger baking my gingerbread house, does that offer extra points? [​IMG]

    Yep, I think that qualifies for pity points [​IMG]

    I finished my gb coop just a bit ago. Made a last push this afternoon to get done. Man, am I sore! Icicles are tough [​IMG]I had to give them a good talking to several times. Good thing there aren't children in my house.

    I'm kidnapping your gingerbread man! He's cute!!

    So how's your project coming along? I have a new-found appreciation for people that make these every year.

    I have to get this painting done so I can play gingerbread too!
    This sounds like fun.

    I did pick up some candies last time I was out... you know in case I do finish painting the house. (The end is no where in sight. I might just get the parts done that people can see from the road.)
    I also bought a lot of lights so I have to get it done rather soon...

    I have a board of gingerbread ideas on pinterest. Some of them are so pretty, I'd clobber anyone who tried to eat it.

    Come on Eggsy, join in the gingerbread fun! The house and paint will be there waiting for you but the contest is only good until 12-31. I want to see what your imaginative mind can come up with!

    P.S. My gingerbread coop is definitely not for eating. I mean, you could, but I wouldn't recommend it, lol.

    Feel free to use the GB guy.

    I'm trying my hand at Gum Paste figures - practiced on Play dough - it's a lot easier to work with than my Gum Paste - So far everything planned is edible, except a surprise feature I found at the Family Dollar Store yesterday….but plans are made to change. [​IMG]

    Gum paste figures? Surprise feature? Can't wait to see it! (Of course, it will make mine look dumpy but I'm new to this gb thing. Does that get me extra pity points? lol)
