Greetings from Punxsutawney, PA

To: All of our devoted collectors of our Gingerbread Angel ornaments

Date: September 9th 2020

Along with all of the hardships that each of you and your families have endured thru 2020,we as well are facing a challenging road ahead. Our Gingerbread Angel Deborah Fleckenstein was diagnosed with endometrial cancer in August. The outlook is promising but Deb will undergo chemo treatments thru December followed by 6 weeks of  radiation beginning the 1st of the new year.

Although Deb has her new 2020 designs created we have decided to suspend our website for 2020. Deb needs to focus all of her energy in getting well again It has been a tough decision but one that was made by the entire family. This year has been hard on all families and we wish you and your families’ health and happiness this Christmas season.

As always on Christmas Eve our family reflects on all the Gingerbread Angel ornaments that adorn so many od your families Christmas treesall around the world.


Take care and God bless

Deb, Jim, and our entire family


For over 25 years, Deborah Fleckenstein has been spreading the magic of Christmas to young and old alike. Deborah has refined her artistic skills with the high quality pieces tastefully done on 1/8" Baltic Birch wood. Starting with the cutting of each ornament and sanding by her husband (and best friend) Jim, this 10-12 step process delivers a high quality heirloom ornament that can be passed down from generation to generation. Any ornament made by Deborah can be personalized with the names of your children, grandchildren, friends and families.

The Gingerbread Angel prides itself on the fine craftsmanship and quality of its hand painted heirloom pieces. Each ornament is made in the USA, by Deborah and Jim, in their hometown of Punxsutawney, which is tucked into the rural rolling hills of Western Pennsylvania.

Many returning customers have faithfully followed Deborah (The Gingerbread Angel!) at the various arts and crafts shows that she has set up at throughout Pennsylvania. These customers look forward to the new line of ornaments that she creates each year and to sharing their stories of the joy that Deborah's personalized ornaments bring to their families and friends.
