It's Christmas ......

Thought I'd share a couple of Christmassy things in our home .....

Each year Jess and I make a Gingerbread House.
Actually, we decorate a Gingerbread House!
We do a trip to Ikea, purchase the pre-made kit, then come home and put it together! The inside of the house is filled with chocolate lollies! The roof is made from Freckles lollies and white chocolate with a couple of Rocky Road trees out the front!

Christmas Eve at our big celebration, we put it in the middle of the table and smash it!

 Miss Jess received a gift from my beautiful 'other mum' Kathy - a Crystal Garden - Jess LOVES this and every morning races out to see how much it has grown over night.

Last night I used some Hambly washi tape, 7Gypsie tape and Tim Hooltz tape to cover this little reindeer! I coated it in Goosebumps (spray glossy accents) then lightly sprinkled it in superfine Glitter!

I think he looks really nice next to the rest of our Chrissy bits!

Have a great week and thanks for your lovely comments!


  1. Merry Christmas to you and your family. I love the idea of filling the gingerbread house with chocolates. Have a great holiday.

  2. Oh you have given me so much inspiration. We are doing our gb house this afternoon and I just love how much effort you put into yours. I might have to lift my game a bit now. And the idea of smashing it is awesome. Thanks, we might just have to start that tradition.
    Love your reindeer. He looks fabulous. What a great idea with the tape.
    Have a fabulous Christmas. x

  3. Me I knew there was something else. I LOOOOOOOOOOOVE crystal gardens. It takes me back to my childhood. I think I may have even bought one as a teenager....don't tell anyone.
    I think I will have to put it on my daughter's Birthday list....for her, not me,

  4. Oh that ginger bread house looks wicked!! YUM!!!! and i love the reindeer too... Have a wonderful Christmas with your family!!

  5. Merry christmas Nat to you and your family, hope you have a great christmas..... Love your GB house... it looks to good to break up .... Cheers Adriana X
