Welcome December, oh this is so wonderful, my favorite time of year has arrived. I woke up this morning to frost across the field and the sun rising without a cloud in the sky. It was beautiful, I should have taken a picture, but I had two little boys at the edge of my bed yelling " Mommy, Mommy, can we open number 1 now. They have been staring at the Advent Calender that I made all week waiting to open the first box.The base for this advent calender is made by Kaiser Craft and the assembly is a fair bit of work, but it is so worth it. My home for the holidays is decked in traditional red and green and I love how the bright colors in the Jillibean papers are muted by the cream and kraft and give my project a country look that suits my home. Every box is just a little bit different, some have clusters of buttons some have swirls of paper and he is hard to see but my favorite is number 17 a little Pearls Snowman with a Black magic hat. In the center of my calender are 24 sheets, that I printed out on Core-diantionsCarstock each one of these sheets has a holiday prompt, photo idea and two black spaces to fill in what we made and what we did on each day. This is the part of the Calender that is for me, it was part of Jessica Spragues Holidays in Hand class. I hope you all have a wonderful December and happy crafting.
I reside on Vancouver Island with my husband and 3 beautiful children. I adore all things crafty and live by a philosophy that has no regrets. I wear many hats and play a variety of sports. I love life to the fullest and relish every moment and encourage those around me to do the same.
