Update on my Advent Calendars...

NO Page Pebbles anywhere to be found. I did, however decide that Hobby Lobby is my new favorite craft store. Their Christmas decorations alone were making me lust....I only spent about 20 minutes in there, Talia was getting cranky because it was nap time. I really wanted to explore...some other time.

I was really impressed with their scrapbook section....but since there were no page pebbles(not even a place they were supposed to be)...I decided to try something different. I bought Mod Podge, and put 2 coats on the front of my Christmas days pieces, one coat on the back, and then put a coat of spray acrylic over that. I like the we'll see. On my Halloween pieces, I decided to try just the spray acrylic. Those are still drying, so we'll see how well they turn out.

I found some Calendar Rub ons, to put numbers on my pieces. It was kind of a pain, because the pieces were already attached to the magnets...but it ended up being a decent solution. Next time, I would make sure the pieces are numbered before I attached them to the magnets. Live and Learn.....

That is so fun! I have a confession to make. I am not crafty, never have, never will. So I think it is great that some people have GREAT patience for it. You go girl!
