Good morning Laura here

I created a Christmas advent calendar for each of our boys and have not really liked them since I made them and now that are boys are young men I wanted to change them so with all the fabulous stuff from Creative Embellishments I did!

The Before:


The After


I am so happy with the changes I made!


The first changes I did was remove the things that I did not like and add the things I do!

So instead of the big poinsettia and star I used the festive Merry Christmas Coins trading coins! Then I added the bow from the Candy Canes and the ‘Believe’ from the Christmas Sentiments

 I painted all the chipboard pieces in bright festive colors!


Nicolle creates the most amazing custom order pieces!

I asked her to create a chimney and gave her the dimensions and voila this awesome piece was sent to me!  I LOVE it! I painted it brick red, added some snowflake paste, and a pom pom I cut in half for his fuzzy part and the Merry Christmas from the Christmas Sentiments!  Isn’t it AWESOME?


To finish it off I added lights and a light up tree!

Cody loved it!

Thanks for stopping by and  Happy Holidays!
