Advent ornaments

These are my new favorite thing I made this year to go along with my December Daily. These are courtesy of Donna Downey who sells the kit and you do the stamping and the sewing. I got the idea of doing this through Ali Edwards who does a few different advent ideas. I love making the whole holiday season truly mean something more than just a day of gifts. I will have the kids pick out one of them a day and do that action, such as Do something nice for someone today. Make someone laugh. Write someone special a letter and send it to them. Its great to go along with my December Daily which you can see here. Hope you follow along throughout December and let me know so I can follow you back!!

Christmas joy

This 7Gypsies printers tray as been sitting for bout a year just waiting to be used! It came black but i wanted to distress it a bit with Tim Holtz distress stains ( I have a love affair with his products) Made the little flowers with Tims die cut and rock candy. And the paper was from the Simple stories I used to do December Daily~ that has gotten some mileage!! If i tell you those presents are from paper bliss from what 8 years ago??? WOW hitting the stash!! Happy to look at this on the wall everyday :)

Made these ornaments so the kids will pick out that day and follow that action. I have to finish them up by sewing the batting inside the 2 layers. I bought the kit from Donna Downey.

I had already posted the altered book but uploading from flickr it just made it easier to do thewhole album at once. I am so addicted to how easy flickr is for sharing why wasn't i doing this before!!
The canvas is done with glass bead gel (the red) and it is awesome stuff!!
