gingerbread house cork trivets

well i am officially on christmas holiday over drive.
i go to NYC in a few days and have to get everything ready for christmas before i go.

meaning cookies, shopping, wrapping,card sending, party going, etc etc etc etc.

holy schmoly! 
i did manage to get a craft in too only cuz i am completely christmas insane.

but this one is totally easy peasy.

the cork tiles are from target's craft line.
i free handed these.
you can leave them white which i like or...
easy right?
i plan to use these for our christmas dinner buffet.
now i am off to the next 334 things to do for christmas on my list!

at this rate, 
i may be done by valentine's day :>P
