Getting my Christmas on Day 2

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!

Why can't it stay out all year? It's not like there are the Advent Police. It's lovely, though and the Christmas cards will get done. You're not any further behind than I am! lol

Christmas certainly does seem to be in a rush to get here this year. Why, I'm so far behind - I think I am ahead for next year.
