reindeer mobile

December 16th, 2008

This is a Martha idea from a few years back. Super simple and it makes the whole room smell like gingerbread. My reindeer are pretty wonky (one somehow became a boy reindeer in the oven and one gained some christmas weight) Martha would not approve. If you make this, the gingerbread dough’s best quality should be sturdiness, not deliciousness.  There was an obscene amount of butter in these, so we will be eating, not decorating with, the rest. Though I’m sure these reindeer will have their feet nibbled off in no time.

    Love it! I remember this from Martha. You even got the wall color right! You just need a sweet little red head sleeping on a bed with the most beautiful cream-colored blanket ever.

    Hi, I saw your pics in the handmade holidays group on flickr and came to check out your blog. Its great! I just started a new blog myself and I noticed you are using wordpress…I have a couple questions for you, if you dont mind…I’m new to this. How did you get your domain name to be the primary URL instead of redirecting to the URL? And also, how did you modify your template to add your blog header at the top? If you have the time to email me, I would so appreciate it. Sorry I am so off topic in your comments, I hope you don’t mind. I love your reindeer mobile!
