It's all just around the corner

It seems that December is just around the corner...
a few days away actually...
THE darkest month of the year,
I saw this cute little advent box last year for an enormous amount of money... but the holiday spirit was surrounding me... and I bought it and never made it (sad face)
 
as you can see... I MADE IT THIS YEAR.
It was pretty fun.
 and that is how I spent my Thanksgiving weekend.
along with a little black Friday shopping, cleaning, laundry, finishing up the key ornaments for the ornament exchange, mailing packages, attending 3 craft shows with a friend, cleaning the front room and getting it ready to paint, cutting trees to have enough greenery to decorate 12 tables...
AND finding out there will be a wedding in the next year... our family is growing!!!
yes sireee bob, It IS the holiday season!

your advent calendar is darling!
I have projects waiting for my attention to finish too.
That's what I like about the winter...you have a reason to stay inside, keep warm, and piddle around the house!

P.S. The cropping of images makes my booth look more professional than the mess it really is!
