Counting the Days...

There are only 16 more sleeps until Christmas. Yikes! where has the time gone?

We've been counting down the days in our house and this year we'll be counting them down on a blackboard.

This mini-blackboard is a child's toy which I found in a craft store. I've decorated it with the fabulous Eskimo Kisses from Basic Grey. These double-sided papers are simply gorgeous! I love the colours and patterns.

I have to say my snowmen are very much inspired by the fabulous Linda Albrecht who is this month's Guest Designer. She creates such wonderful pieces that she definately inspired my snowman.

Unfortuately the light here is poor so you can't see all the sparkly glitter and glass bauble gems. They really are divine. The little dear is cut out of Dearly paper - I wish I had bought the chip stickers - the little girls and boys would have looked fabulous.

I made a clay birdie to sit on a branch. She is covered in ultra-fine glitter too.

I hope that we've inspired you to create something lovely for Christmas. Remember that there are heaps of lovely new goodies in the store to tempt you.
Merry Christmas!
