In the 10th Advent.....

I am very delighted by today's advent treat.........ready to sing along??

"In the 10th Advent window
my calendar gave to me
a scrummy yummy cupcake die"


A yummy cupcake deserves sparkle & sprinkles with candy colours and shiny ribbon....
 So I used my new advent die and added the cutouts from the 2nd Advent die (stars) as sprinkles. A nice shiny Pink and purple ribbon to go with the card and cupcake bases. I covered the icing section in iridescent ultra-fine glitter.
I know a little girl who is going to love this.
Oh, remember how I couldn't think what to do with the skull from the 9th Advent window, well I worked it out.......
 Carol Singing Skulls
Yes, it's a little weird I know, but hey why not, and they do look festive with their little bows (advent 8). Believe it or not I can think of a few people who would think this is hilarious.
I am entering my skeletal choir in 
 Hope you have enjoying my Advent countdown and you are having a great time preparing for the festive excitement.

See you tomorrow

In the 9th Advent......

Another quick post I'm afraid. It's been a very busy day, clearing everything from downstairs, taking our eldest to find a new car and posting cards & presents to foreign countries.

So...........

A scary little skull die"


I'll be honset.....I'm so into the christmas festive mood I'm struggling to know what to do with this...

So I shall have a bit more of a think and hopefully come back to share whatever creation I come up with.
Sorry for the lack of inspiration.....think my brain is having a little overload at the moment.

See you tomorrow

In the 8th Advent

Hello, so as well as opening my calendar today I got an extra nice surprise.
When I got home from work we had a front window again.
It was so great and it's hard to believe that only 3 weeks ago we had half our living room wall on the living room carpet.
So now that I have gotten the good news out of the way lets get on with the fun part

"In the 8th Advent window

So I have made some simple present tags.

Short and sweet today as I have lots to do before the decorators show up next week, yes I'm pleasantly shocked at the prospect. Christmas with a normal living room again :-)

See you tomorrow

In the 7th Advent window

Not quite the crafty day I had hoped for, the Plasterer and Plumber showed up today. Apparently (weather permitting) our new living room window shows up tomorrow. So exciting times. It's hard to believe there was a car stuck in it only three weeks ago.

But back to the important business of crafting and advent calendar....ready?

A message of seasonal Joy

I wanted to make something a little different with this die and in the end decided to combine it with the 4th advent die (snowfalke) to make a festive badge. I shall be wearing it to our office fuddle.
My husband very kindly took this photo for me, I was struggling to take it myself with our little camera...........(and I'm not a fan of using my mobile for selfies)

I'm entering my badge into the following challenges

Another plus for today is my wonderful friend Heather came over from Shrewsbury for a visit and we had a lovely lunch at our local garden centre.

I hope you will joing me again tomorrow for the next window.

See you tomorrow

A cute little puppy dog die
I have to say I really wasn't sure about this die when I opened the window this morning. But then I thought about a friend who is doggy mad and adores getting lost in a good book and the answer was simple.
A bookmark
Combine to passions into one, I just hope she likes it.

Well it's getting late and I want to get up early to open the next window.

In the 5th Advent Window

Hope everyone has had a great day, are you ready for todays sing along? There's a bit of a twist....

In the 5th Advent window
My calendar gave to me
Nothing
The die that sholuld be sitting behind this little window is rattling around somewhere inside, I am devastated. Now I have to wait till I either find it in another window OR WORSE I'll have to wait till christmas day to rip it apart.

Now I know some of you are probably think "Just open it and find it ya daft bat" but NO! I will not cheat and peak at others just to find this one now. I shall steal my resolve and patiently wait....I can do this!!!!  I shall look forward to making something.

I do have some fabulous news to share with you all.
We nearly have a living room wall again 😁. They are hoping to get the wall plastered before christmas. (although I think it's far to young for that) As you can imagine we are delighted that the builders our insurance sent out have done so well.
We probably won't have a window till the new year but at least they are doing their best with everything else.

I'm sorry for not having a new project to share with you today but at least we have 20 days left.

Aaaaarrrrrgghhhh!!!!! Only 20 days......oh no....so much wrapping and so little time.....😢

See you tomorrow
Hugs and happy thoughts
