Gingerbread Challenge - Last day to sign up

Illustration by Ileana Oakley
 
Yes, CT enthusiasts, we have a NEW theme....finally! Obviously, I've been lack here posting something. My excuse? We moved back to Colorado after our time away in England, helping my family out there with our mother. It didn't help that not only were we both sick with terrible chest infections and colds which lasted over a week upon our return, we also moved our things into a new (darling little) home we're renting across from town form where we lived before. To make matters even more exhausting, we did that the very next day after we arrived back here, still dealing with major jet lag, etc! So, all that to say, we've been settling back into a life here and all that entails.I 'm finally ready now to introduce to you our new CT challenge!

In the interim, I suspect, we may have lost some followers in the wait but for those of you diligent and ready, we have two weeks (until Dec. 13th) to make or illustrate a CHRISTMAS GINGERBREAD HOUSE! Yes, you can even make it in the kitchen and show us your culinary decorating prowess! (I'm thinking Wanda would be great here...if she ever sees this.) So, think ginger, think visual feast, and do please make it festive! :)

Thank you ahead of time for anyone and everyone who plays along on this one. I know it's a jolly busy time for most of us. Time to get out there and sprinkle some creativity and kindness along the way. Enjoy.

  5. Hi Michael, glad you are back home and hope you have settled into your new place? Its been such a mad few weeks/ months for you by the sound of it. I hope you can find time to relax a little now and that you are both feeling better? So good to see a new theme and thank you also for adding me to the list of regular contributors :0) all is well here and our little girl has finally arrived. I shall enjoy creating a ginger bread house that I am sure she would enjoy eating her way through in the not too distant future. For now be well and happy, best wishes, Dancin.

  7. Hey Everyone, great pieces for this theme. I am sorry to pull the '4 week old baby card' but I am completely out of time on this. I have sketched something but to be honest I am so embarrassed by it I am not going to post it. So sorry to let everyone down.
