Wait for It...

 
I have had a
bee in my bonnet
to get
my girls' countdown calendars done.
 
Why? 
 
I    don't   know.
 
Just had to be done.
 
And uh, Christmas candy isn't on the shelves
 at the end of October, go figure? :)
 
But finally, on Nov. 1st,
they led me to where they
were unpacking the candy.
 
 
I made these little packets last year too.
Maybe it's a new tradition.
 
 
Love these papers.
 
 
But...it needed to be a little different.
So.... I mixed in something new!
 
 
 
How cute
is he? 
I should have made all Reindeers.
 
 
I cut them out
on a Silhouette Cameo.
 
 
I'm a little obsessed with
the packets right now.
Yep, I made them for Halloween.
 
 
And there are the cutest ones
for Thanksgiving;
I can hardly stand it.
 
I saw my girls this past weekend, and
 the calendars are delivered,
hung and ready to go.
 
 
They just get to look
at them for ~3 weeks.
 
Are you working on any
Christmas items?

    1. Yes, I sew them. I have more paper. I bought a pack of probably 100 sheets and only needed 4 of them. I like using cardstock. Did you glue them last year? I glued & stapled my Halloween ones.
