Gingerbread house

I am very taken with the idea of making a gingerbread house and covering with sweets. There are some great pictures on google pics such as these ones.
I read that you need to make gingerbread one day, assemble the next and decorate the next. I didn't really have time to do that, so I've made some paper ones with fabric paint and sequins to send as christmas cards.

Christmas markets

It has been so long since I did a post I've forgotten how to do it, but I've finally managed to remember how to put these pictures up.
The first picture is a new pattern called lozenge. When I was at school we had to fill in a careers questionnaire that had questions on like FILL IN THE LOZENGE.... Would you rather work with people or help sick animals?
At the end it tells you if you are more suitable to be a nurse or a vet.
I think mine came out with interior designer. Anyway these are the lozenges. Who knows what the questions are, some are filled in and some are blank. Hmm!
Picture 2 is me selling lozenge and others at a Christmas market in Malvern. I have done the last of these markets now, and I'm quite glad about it they were too cold!
