It took me awhile, and some bad decisions before I found out they sell mini four packs of champagne at most grocery stores (found mine at super Target for the same price as one mini bottle at a gourmet grocery store). In my defence, I'm not a drinker.

I have 20 or so gingerbread related crafts through the years. I've linked most of them on my gingerbread pinterest board here. This year I'm hosting a gingerbread themed brunch for my niece and nephew who are visiting. I'm sharing some of the gifts, that are easy to put together last minute, and a few of the activities we will be doing after brunch. I'm also linking a few of the recipes I'll be putting together to share with the attendees. I prerecorded this segment on GMT which airs today at 9 am. :O)
I'll be making these little cinnamon scented soaps in the shape of gingerbread men. That process is here.
I made these little felt gingerbread cookies a few years ago. It remains one of my favorite gifts...here is that process.
A few of the activities the kiddos are doing at my gingerbread party include gingerbread scented playdough. That recipe is here.
...and these little houses...
...and we are decorating gingerbread men. My very favorite recipe is here.
I love it because they are soft and they hold their shape.

Each hostess also baked or bought cookies and we all pooled together our cookie jar collections to fill up.
