For 10 Weeks of Christmas Post #6 I wanted to ask when does it "feel like Christmas" to you? When the snow flies? When the tree is up? When Wal-Mart is open 24 hours a day? Getting dressed for the first Christmas party? When family shows up? While you're in the midst of wrapping on Christmas Eve?
For my oldest son, Liam, I think it feels like Christmas when we pull out the advent calendar. That is when the countdown can really begin. This year I have made a new advent calendar with Stampin Up products and I am excited to share it with you.
The advent calendars use the Big Shot PeekaBoo Frames Die and are adhered to the front of a mini muffin pan! So, behind each of the doors is a little cubby hole for items that you choose. Here are a couple of creative ideas for things to put behind each window. 1. Traditional treats and chocolates scattered with notes to places where other larger presents are hid. 2. Notes with things to do as a family like movie night, decorate the tree, make Christmas cookies, go tobogannings 3. Pieces of a puzzle or a toy that the child will be able to put together after all the windows are open.
Each cubby hole is marked with a stamped number from the 25 & Counting stamp set (50% off during the Online Extravaganza until November 28th). Both of these calendars use paper from the Festival of Prints Designer Paper Stack.
I am happy to be able to offer you the opportunity to order your family Advent Calendar for $40. Calendars will be available to order until November 29th. Please let me know if you would prefer Green and Red or Red and Blue.
