Crafter----ALL DAY!

So,we all did our Advent Calendars Yesterday at Mindy's all day craft spectacular....Thanks Again, Mindy, for letting me and my darling stinkerbum invade your house, use your supplies, and create such cute things!!!

My Christmas Advent Calendar....

I'm all done, although I might try to find a bit more ribbon for the top, and I need to either find page pebbles for the day pieces, or I thought that maybe I could spray them with Acrylic to make them harder and protect the numbers. I've said it before, but I'm so glad I have my makes projects like this so much easier!

So here's my Halloween one...

It's not quite done, as you can see....I need to find some way of numbering the pieces, and then again, either page pebbles or acrylic to make them more durable. A bit more varied colors of ribbon to add to the top. The best part of it all though, was that Cole was both impressed with my work, and Liked both of the calendars. For a guy who likes the creepy(NOT cutesy) Halloween stuff, and tolerates Christmas because I love it so much (after all, I deal with his Halloween Obsession), that was saying a lot. I was completely wiped out last night, but pleased with what I accomplished yesterday. Again, thanks Min, I couldn't have done it without you! I find that I have trouble coming up with a basic crafty idea on my own, but once the idea is there, I have no problem using my own creativity to personalize it.

I also started a birthday countdown Advent....but it's only about 1/2 done, so I'm not going to post it until it's finished. I'm pleased with how it's coming along though.

I haven't forgotton the Kyle tag...I'll get to it soon!

Cute! The next craft we will have to plan based on supplies with a much larger available quantity of the needed crafting supplies ;)
