run, run, run...

JJ's two and a half year old, Harvey, is a little bit obsessed with the gingerbread man. It is his absolute favourite bedtime story at the moment, and despite suggesting other books, JJ often finds herself repeating the familiar "run, run, run as fast as you can, you can't catch me, I'm the gingerbread man." She probably only encouraged this obsession by making a stuffed and painted gingerbread man with Harvey last week. Harvey now uses this little fellow to act out the story with his Dad, who willingly dresses up in  scarf to be the little old woman (got to get a photo of that!) This morning, all Harvey's dreams came true when JJ suggested they make the real thing. Funnily enough, these gingerbread men didn't run away, but they were sadly neglected once the icing  and sprinkles had been licked off!

We have been busy making Christmas cards and tags and what do you know .... we even have a selection of gingerbread man tags. These little guys are beaded and stitched on to card, complete with ribbon ready to tie on to a special present.
