Countdown to Christmas..

Although it's barely into November, we are already full swing into the Holiday Season! Well, I suppose when I say 'we' I am pretty much speaking of myself, but I tend to drag Grace along with me! We have begun planning out some new, fun Holiday projects this year to get things going. I decided we needed to get an advent calendar stat, so what's better than making one ourselves!

We got a fantastic idea from the ahhmazing Martha Stewart (how I love her so!). It included baby socks, felt, clothespins and glittery ribbon for a clothesline! Now Grace and Chap will be able to countdown to Santa's visit with a stocking a day filled with lil' goodies! Below are some photos of her adventures in crafting.

The Supplies..

Carefully counting clothespins.. all 24

Doing what she does best.. being silly :p

Socks.. all finished, not yet hung

New month, new start

So, I have decided to join the world of blogging! Go me! I figure I'm slowly getting sucked into all this technological stuff, so might as well do it all. Ha.. ha. We all know how great I am at it all!
Since it's the begining of the month, figured there was no time better than now!

I must say I am uber excited about it being the first of November! Why, you may ask? Simply because it's the begining of my Holiday Season! As I'm sure you know, I love love love the Holidays! I cannot wait to whip out the decor and go a little crazy with it all. Luckily, I have my lovely friend Lynne, who loves it just as much and I can craft with and go shopping with for new Christmas items. I'm pretty sure the rest of you all think I'm slightly crazy :P Don't be surprised if I have mass amounts of photos being posted here in the next few weeks of new finds and creations.

If you have blogs of your own, please let me know, as I would love to follow you all. I'm sure I'll be back soon.. and probably much too often!
