Okay, let me start by saying that I know there are not 20 days left until Christmas – although, I am thinking that a few extra days would come in handy at this point! But I did want to take a minute to share the little countdown chalkboard I created this year with some of the cute paper from DCWV’s Jolly Whimsy Stack, and a cute easel chalkboard that I picked up at Michales.
If you haven’t seen this stack yet, it is really a lot of fun. While you will find lots of traditional colours and graphics, you will also find some cute surprises! The Santa that you see here in the calendar was actually fussy cut from one of the patterned pieces of paper (I used him last month for a mini album too). He looks complicated to cut, but because the images of this graphic are so clean and smooth, it really is an easy task!
I also fussy cut the lettering from another page in the stack. I didn’t end up using the whole saying because I just didn’t have enough space, but I can’t wait to use it all on a layout for some Christmas memories this year.
Well, that’s it for me today! If all you have left to do for Christmas is countdown, I applaud you! One of these years I hope to be in your shoes! In the meantime, I am going to keep counting down the days with my little chalkboard, and slowing crossing off things from my “to do” list as I go along. Hey, maybe that’s the project I need to do next – a Christmas “To Do” list! I guess that would be one more thing to add to it!
Thanks for stopping by!
