Busy Busy!

Not sure what happened but I am sure it is not me the computer genius that I am!! :)
Have been trying to post for the third time.

I am going to try and post pictures of an advent calendar that I just finished. Love it! I have wanted to make one for a couple of years and just never had the patience to get it together. Since I work at a place where my job is to create and i have all the resources at my fingertips i thought I would give it a whirl!! The one I really want to do is from Teresa McFayden and if I knew how to get the link on her name i would but you can look to the left sidebar and get the link there.

Here is the finished project. I used only mambi product (meandmybigideas) except for the numbers and the chipboard stars which i covered with mambi paperand the little turn mounts. If you want a tutorial on it email me and I will send you one.
Here are close up pictures of the header and the numbers

This advent calendar is a RAK calendar. Under the numbers are little reminders or kind gestures if you will to persue on others. Like, bake cookies for your neighbor or pay the toll for the car behind you. Get it?? We often get so busy during this time of year and I figured why not spread goodwill towards men..women.
I also want to make one with empty matchboxes and fill them with goodies for the kids. We will just have to see if I get that one done. I might be biting off more than I should right now.

I also made this blessings journal. Again with all mambi product. Super simple. Covered a journal with paper and added some of our softspoken. Love our soft spoken. It really does all the work for you and makes your projects look beautiful without alot of work or money for that matter!My idea for this book was for everyone on Thanksgiving to write something they were thankful for in 2007. I forgot!!! With all the hustle and bustle in the kitchen it slipped my mind. Oh well, maybe next year.
I am off to get things done for tomorrow. I have bible study here at the house and I need to clean up not to mention doing the bible study!

Ok, I will admit I cheated on the advent calender and bought 2 at Trader Joes with the candy inside for the kids! There goes my creativity on that one! Makes more time for me to paint. As you said, busy, busy! Have fun tomorrow!

Hi Suezi miss new blogger. Love all the stuff you've posted. I'm glad you liked the cards. I've been loving all the stuff you gave me from Mambi, they have been used loveingly in my card classes over the last few months. I agree a girls cheer night would be great!
Have fun blogging. Tonight i'm going to add you to my favorite bloggers list on my blog because I get so many readers i'm sure it will send a flood to yours. (that was a joke!) Have a good day friend!
