Counting Down to Christmas!

Happy Wednesday! What I am sharing with you today is a Countdown to Christmas block set. This was a class at my local scrap booking store, Scrappin Time, that got canceled since I was the only one who signed up! They sent me home with a kit to put together myself. Unfortunately I just got it finished tonight. There is a lot of painting & modge-podging (is that EVEN a word???) and I needed the wood blocks & angel to dry overnight.

I painted the wood pieces, glue down the paper squares & numbers and then I used modge podge to glaze it all down. The blocks have different patterned paper on each side & different numbers too. Super cute, photo doesn't do the paper justice! The angel was painted and I used stickles to glitter up her wings. Glued the halo (there is a halo, but you really can't see it in the photos) & the ribbon to her dress.....and voila!

The hard thing about this cute kit is......deciding where to put it! It would be perfect on my desk at work and it would also be perfect on my kitchen counter. Hmmmmm, decisions decisions! LOL!

As the calendar shows, there are only 23 days until Christmas!!!!! WOW! Stop back tomorrow, I will have more to share!
