Good morning everyone. I am sorry this is going up a bit later than usual, but it IS Saturday and one of the only days I get to sleep in a little.
Now I'm up, I have my cup of coffee and my bowl of granola and I think I'm ready to get started, I have to anyway because in about 2 hours I am heading out with my hubby, brother and sister in law for some Christmas shopping.
Right, so on with it......
How am I counting down to Christmas. Usually I have this little snowman that holds up stars with numbers and we switch it out every day to get closer to Christmas.
That is an old picture, I completely forgot where this guy is and haven't found him yet so I haven't been using him this year. Bummer!
Another way I count down is with an advent calendar of some sorts. I made one a few years back that consisted of tiny little envelopes all hand stitched with the days.
I used it up until two years ago, some of the envelopes magically disappeared and I have to make new ones and just haven't gotten around to it. So I set this one aside and now use this Advent Calendar....
Aside from those practical items to keep me on the right track, I also have my very own countdown to Christmas, who not only tells me how many days, but how many hours, and sometimes down to the minutes. Oh and it reminds me every day, throughout the day of how much time I have left to get everything ready for the big day.
It's quite a cute countdown too........wanna see it????
