We're heading to see my family in an hour and I am beside myself excited, although a "white" Christmas is making an appearance! Hopefully, the snow won't hinder our journey...I have mom to take to a Christmas Eve celebration and some niece-and-nephew hugs (and gifts) to deliver!
Before I finish off packing, I'm sharing the remainder of the *interactive* Advent Coundown that I created for Ms. T and Mr. C. Just a reminder of the nature of this little series: each day includes two tags, a couple of images and the whole kit and kaboodle tucked into little bags - aka "kits" - for the kids to make. Tag 17, for example, has two mugs for them to glue down and an accompanying pair of mugs for them colour as they wish; Tag 18 has a coloured mini tag of candy canes to place, with a background of candy canes awaiting their special touches, and so on...
What you see in the photos are my 'placed, but not adhered' Aunty C versions of what the tags might look like. What they "will" look like...who knows? A five year old and a three year old are in charge of that!! Yes, some of the die cuts and embellishments might be challenging for them to work with but hey...mommy and daddy are part of the process, too, right? Right!
Anyway...here's Part Two of my Advent project for two of the loves of my life. Days 1-16 are here.
All the tags are from the Stitched Mainstreet collection from Poppy Stamps, and images...well, you'll see the assortment.
Some mugs to glue down and some mugs to colour...
A candy cane mini tag and some candy canes that need some red (or pink, or purple)...
A couple of inked stockings waiting to be hung, and a couple more awaiting niece-and
Mrs. Claus with a cocoa and cookies treat...and a couple extra Mrs. Claus's and cocoas
to be coloured and placed who knows where *grin*
Santa suit...this is a one-piece number as the bits are somewhat fiddly;
placement required though.
A wee sheep who has his lights in a tangle and hat on backwards (the kids
will get a giggle out of that) and another set of sheep, hats and bow for the little artists...
RC Snowflake, made with fun foam! Aunty C had fun with that one! I've adhered the
small bits, leaving the 'peel and stick' task for the kids.
The 'tag' is from Sugar Pea Designs; the Santa from ME. The kids can write their
name on the recipient line and check off the *naughty* box...tee hee. Again, another Santa
and gift to do with as they please.
Simple...the essence of Christmas. Hope they like colouring the Blessed Family.
And...it's a wrap! THANK YOU so much for your patience in strolling through my 'attempt to be creative' Advent project for my niece and nephew. I'll share photos of how the Countdown turned out soon. Excited to see the magic 'they' created.
To all my wonderful friends in this community: wishing you a most joyous Merry Christmas, filled with special moments shared with family and friends! Enjoy every. single. moment. Thank you for sharing your 'presence' in my life; I treasure the gift of your friendship deeply!
