Countin' it down!

I got this kit out to the designer's earlier this month and I actually had some time to work on it, too! I loved it! I love Christmas and love to create this time of year. It is so inspiring! I was in Atlanta this weekend and told my husband we needed to go into PotteryBarn kids/Teen just for inspiration. He laughed at me. After about 5 minutes, he actually said I was right, HE was inspired! It might have had something to do with the guitars. He has been rocking out to Guitar Hero on the Wii. I mean, he is addicted. He plays it during commercials, as soon as he gets home from work, after he puts the kids to bed......it's hilarious!

So, I created this countdown to Christmas for my kiddos. I had this wood picture frame at the beach. I thought it would work great for a countdown, it has two openings and it is about 2 inches thick. So, it stands on it's own or it will hang on the wall. I toyed with the idea of putting something special for us to do each day in the bottom opening, but.......too much pressure! I found this adorable picture of John Connor with his first visit to Santa and love the way it reminds me of what Christmas is through a child's eyes! He's so innocent. Not caring about the materialistic side of this holiday. Just the magic! I love the magic!

The bird is in the journal tags from Jenni Bowlin. They are in the add-on kit. Some Prima flowers for the wing and I added some of the Queen and Co. pearls. Those things are fabulous! I think I used every one of them on something!

I added this pic just because it has my favorite Santa in it! I can remember pulling him out every year when I was little. He is such a pretty Santa! My Mom gave him to me when I got my own house. It really is one of my favorite gifts. I probably need to tell her that. I don't know if I ever have!
