Gingerbread Man!

Well here he is...he still needs to dry out for 2 more days. He's cute as heck..but thick! I do think I want him alittle thick so he can lean up against the window and not crack if he ends up falling over. I dont know yet if I will keep this recipe for making him because the other side looks like crap and I really want these to end up looking super nice and being strong. Once I get him painted and ribboned up--I will post him again if he actually lives that long...you just never know what the next 2 days will bring to his little life.

As you can tell I'm not that big into crafting but there are a couple things I do have in mind that I want to perfect and possibly sell later on. He is one and I came across some other neat ideas last night--tonight I'm off to locate some of the supplies. I'm on a mission and that is to have some sort of income coming into our home to replace mine if I end up deciding to leave my job within the next year or two. A part time job out of the home and then something from home would be sweet! If anyone of you who stops by happens to know of a recipe to make gingerbread ornaments or tricks on painting them--feel free to leave your tips!

I have to laugh...I have been craving gingerbread ALL day-YET I can't eat any gluten (flour, rye, barley, most oats) so I have been trying to find something that has ginger in it to fill my "ginger" need! I have yet to find it and then I come over here and what do I find?? Mr. Gingerbread man! All I have to say is he better run! :)
All kidding aside, he is adorable-I can't wait to see him all decked out!

I'm about as crafty as you are but I love your "little man" He is adorable. Looking forward to seeing more. How did you make him?

Judy said...

Hi again Dawn, Yes I would love the recipe. I have one for applesauce and cinnamon and then you cut out shapes. I haven't tried it yet. I'll let you know how it comes out.

It seems to me that we use to make gingerbread ornaments from applesauce and cinnamon but I don't remember how much. They always were smooth and smelled really good. I think your little man is really cute.

Why is everyone so brutal? They always start at the head. The crunchy, delicious head.
