Winning a Gingerbread Decorating Contest

So my sister Beth and I decided to enter a gingerbread decorating contest at Joanns Fabric a couple weeks ago. I happened to see an ad about it when I was in the store. So we showed up with our undecorated house and supplies and took our time decorating right in the front of the store where lots of people watched as they stood in line to check out. It was so much fun...we did win 2 $25 gift cards and a free class. We won't mention that most people who signed up didn't show up and that the only other two people in the contest worked at Joanns but one of them was the Wilton instructor and her house was not too impressive. Also they both used kits, we didn't. So here are some pictures and we sure are grateful for the gift cards!


  1. Congrats! Very cute house!! You guys do great work!!

  2. Yay! That's awesome that y'all won the contest! (Although of course, I'm not surprised. ;-)
