A Gingerbread Christmas

If you’ve ever looked at the Idea Files tab at the top of this blog, you know that (like many of you!) I’ve torn pictures out of magazines for years … thinking “someday” I might use the ideas. Some of them I have; many I haven’t — yet. This blog is helping me get them organized. I’m excited about sharing them with you from time to time, but I have one BIG request … 

Please — remember that these were mostly torn from various magazines, and I am not always able to properly credit them to the appropriate source. I did NOT take these pics.  (As with ALL text and photos on this blog, you may not reproduce anything without permission — and I cannot give permission for you to reproduce any of the ideas/pics that will be in this Idea Files section because it’s not mine to give! You may use these solely for your own inspiration — just as I do.) 



Today’s focus is gingerbread.  While looking at the ideas, be sure to keep your mind open. Some of them would work great with a rustic/woodland theme; others would be fun for a children’s Fairy Land; still others a country Christmas theme.

Now, I know you bloggers …
You don’t need me to say another word! I’ll just let you look.
Just click on the pics to enlarge them!

Now go forth and CREATE!

If you use one of these ideas, post about it on your blog and send me the link; I’ll add it here! If you don’t have a blog, email a picture to me, and I’ll include it for you!

  2. Thanks for sharing these great ideas. The garland is awesome. You always have some great ideas that anyone could use. I have the christmas tree cookie cutters but never thought about using gingerbread. I might just do that this year, Thanks.
