December 2- Advent Calendar Extravaganza!

Happy Wednesday!

I love to spread a little holiday cheer, 
so when crafty friend Taheerah Atchia reached out to me about her fun Christmas event, 
I signed up immediately!
As a kid, I loved advent calendars and opening the little doors each day. I didn't like that I had to take turns with my brother, LOL, but I still remember the excitement and fun :)

  

Advent Calendar Extravaganza is -the- festive event of the season! This ‘hop with a twist’ was dreamed up by Taheerah Atchia and features surprise destinations each day! Joining in the fun with Taheerah are over 60 special guests - each serving up some fantastic Christmas inspiration! 
Just like an Advent Calendar, you’ll never know where you’re going to be visiting next until you ‘open the door’!

And that’s not all! 
With 25 *amazing* sponsors taking part as well, your crafty wish list is bound to get a boost with a chance to win a prize EVERY SINGLE DAY!!

Join in the fun every day at taheerah-atchia.com to see what special surprises wait behind the door!

Our contribution comes from Girl Friday Angie...


Isn't it gorgeous?! 
She used Bubble Box Fri-Dies to cut the shaker shape. 
I love how the sentiment from Lovely Blessings fits so wonderfully inside, 
and I think the heart shape behind it is a lovely touch. 
She created that by using Heart Board Fri-Dies as a stencil 
and spraying it with gold mist.
Gorgeous!!



I hope you enjoyed our little treat for you! 
and before you go, lots of our sets are retiring and will no longer be available at the end of this year (which is just days away!)

Merry Christmas!!
