Match Box Day #4 and More Gingerbread Capers

Matchbox Swap Day #4 came from Valerie Williams @ http://itsanalienlife.blogspot.com
aka 'Mrs A' made the adorable little box below with a cute little pin for the surprise inside.

Thanks Mrs. A and Happy Holidays to you and yours!

The Gingerbread Capers continues.....






Mr. Holiday became obsessed with the embellishment process last night and worked on his house until 4 a.m this morning.....ugh! He kind of looks like he's scowling but it's actually the look of extreme concentration... I'm thinking he's fallen in love with the 'pastry bag', which of course really is a wonderful thing....but I watched him use it for everything even things he perhaps could have used a spoon or spatula, which was no big deal except watching him struggle every two minutes to refill his pastry bag was slightly painful...LOL. Then it occurred to me that of course...a pastry bag is a 'tool'...and men need tools to get the job done! ;) wink wink....
He's getting close to being finished... which means it's getting close to posting for the give away...
I'm so excited, I can't wait for you to see!!!
Happy Saturday, Happy Holidays... I hope your day is blessed!
XOXO
