Dear Mare,

Today at work I had to put together the small version of the foam gingerbread house. It is not nearly as maddening, so if you are looking to buy one of these for torture purposes, I suggest splurging on the big one.

Well, the little one isn't as bad...provided it actually comes with all its pieces. Which mine did not.


I did take a photo of the masterpiece I put together the other day. Behold, in all its glory:


I also forgot to mention the other day that all I had to go on was a 2"x2" black and white photo of the thing. Hardly good instructions.

Each heart? Individually applied. I know I mentioned that. It's worth repeating.

Do not attempt this at home, kids.

OMG! I want to get her the Valentine one. It's pink and princessy and my SIL will have to help her apply Each. Heart. Individually!!!!

I'll see if I can get my brother to video tape the process. We can put it on YouTube under the catergory "Head Explosions"

Serioulsy, you did a great job with that. I have button pictures for you.
