Gingerbread houses are fun to make but because they require very hard, sturdy cookies that will hold up to several weeks of display, they are not necessarily the dough used to make them will probably not produce the tastiest holiday cookies that you'll have. If you bake smaller gingerbread cookies, you can get a better consistency and flavor, but you have to give up on the idea of having a three-dimensional cookie showpiece.
I made tiny gingerbread houses that are meant to be perched on the edge of a mug of hot chocolate. I had been thinking about those sugar cubes that hook on the rim of a teacup earlier this month, and I was also thinking about 3-D cookies and how they fit together and figured it would be pretty neat to make cookies that hang on the edge of a mug. I thought I was being so brilliant but it only took a few seconds to discover that a flat cookie on the edge of a mug has already been done . So I started wondering what else I could do. At the time I was making a bunch of gingerbread recipes trying to find one that would hold up for my partridge in a pear tree cookie , so a gingerbread house was on my mind.

I was wanting some more graphic, modern-looking Christmas throws and had an idea. The story of this pillow starts here, funny enough. I made this Halloween costume last year and had a much easier time sewing on the felt cross of St. George to the knight tunic than I thought I would. So as I was pondering my new pillow design, I remembered I had plenty of supplies left over from Halloween and decided to put them to use.

One of my top picks this year is The Perfectly Imperfect Home by Deborah Needleman.
