Weeks and weeks have passed, preparing for Christmas has become like a full-time job. My favorite time is when I steal a few moments to complete a task, while listening to cheerful Christmas tunes from long ago. I can get lost in the wonder of it all!
I'm finally making a post on my oh so neglected blog. I have so many crafts and stories to share, but so little time to post them. Well, I'm hoping most of you are finished with your decorating, and are now deep into holiday revelry. :) I made this advent calendar using paper tags, fabric ribbons, and papering tiny matchbook covers.
Finding a place for them was easy. We have a stone archway standing in the foyer of our home, so I place each day's tag on vertical rows on opposite sides of each other. The children take turns, alternating the opportunity to slide open the matchbooks to reveal the tiny treasures inside.
I think I have painted and glittered about 50 of these huge wooden snowflakes. Lots of fun seeing them hang in the most unusual places throughout the house. Love those old fashioned glittered nativity scenes, too.
My Christmas owl happily stands guard over our white Christmas tree. Aren't owls delightful any time of the year? My very favorite bird, for sure. Do you have a favorite bird you love all year round?
Hope your Holiday season is a very relaxing and blessed time!
