Countdown to Christmas!
It's only 20 days until Christmas everybuddy! We bought and put up our Christmas tree this weekend and I'm going to use the leftover branches to make a wreath next weekend. I also dug out our advent calendar, one of the first of my 'proper' craft projects (i.e. more than just an oddly shaped rectangle I called a 'scarf') made about 7 years ago. Despite how amateur and wonky it looks now, I still love it, it's so bright and Christmassy. Every year I buy a tin of Roses and put 2 sweets in each pocket.
Sometime soon I'm going to replace the horrid wire coat hanger with something more smart, but every time I go to replace it, I get all nostalgic for my early crafting days and leave it as it is. The backing white fabric was originally a table cloth and all the beads and fabric were from my early stash. I still have some of these squares left over!
I love holiday traditions. I'm working over Christmas this year so I'm determined to enjoy the festive season these first 2 weeks to make up for missing out on Christmas week itself!
