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!
