Count Down to Christmas!!

Hello Friends!
I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving with your family and friends.
We had a wonderful meal over at Moms with my Dad's side of the family and we've still got one for Dh's side of the family on Sunday and our own Thanksgiving here which I haven't decided when to have it yet.  I guess I'll see how tired we are of turkey on Sunday before I cook ours ;)  LOL!!
So, anyone out there brave the crowds shopping till you drop?
I have to admit I'm a wimp when it comes to Black Friday shopping...
I think I went once years ago and that was enough for me.
I did do a bit of on-line shopping yesterday and today so I did contribute my $'s to the till.
I guess I am doing the craft show tomorrow ~
ds's girlfriend wants to go with and help so she, mom and I are going to give it a shot. 
We'll see how it goes this time.  I know that this one has been advertised quite a bit more than the one last week so we'll see if that makes a difference.  The only thing I'm worried about is that it is Black Friday/Weekend.  I thought too many people would be hitting the malls but Morgan didn't think so.
Since Thanksgiving is over it's time to start the official
Countdown to Christmas!!!
We have 32 days until Christmas
the challenge over on the Third Coast Challenge Blog
You can create a functional advent calendar, ATC, greeting card, art journal page, mixed media or any other project inspired by the holiday countdown.  And here is my card to get you in the mood....

You have until  Dec. 5th at 7am so you have loads of time to enter for your chance to win a $25 gift certificate to Third Coast Rubber Stamps!

Good Luck Everyone!!!


  1. Good luck this weekend. Perhaps people will be more keen to spend. Maybe they will be avoiding the big malls as well!! At least they will be guaranteed to get something a bit different.

  2. Very Cute, the texture on the tre is wonderful!

    Sounds like a great challenge, i am going to try to get something made for that?



Thanks for your thoughts and comments!
