Day two of getting my Christmas on, time is running out for me. I normally have all my Christmas cards made , written and ready to mail for Thanksgiving and here I am a week to go and I still haven't made them, let alone written them..
So next week while the boys are off school and busy playing with the computer games. I am hiding away in the studio and I'm not coming out until all 5o cards are made , written and ready to post.
I promised yesterday I would show you what else I made with the left over paper, stickers from yesterdays project.
two years ago I brought this from Target.
An advent calendar, I didn't like the color much but I loved the small doors. Yesterday after making the tray I thought about changing the Advent. In the end I didn't change the color.
It was so easy I made a template of the door, it is just a 2in square and punched out a hole with my hole punch for the small pegs. Then added stickers , brads , photos of (you guessed it Fairy's!)
numbers and after when I had mod podged it all down I went back and added gems...and glitter. I love it! Why didn't I think of doing it before ? it is so pretty I wish it could stay out all year...
I plan to go to see Harry Potter tomorrow morning, early before the rush but after I am starting on the cards I will show how it goes... see you tomorrow!
