Christmas Countdown - Day 8

Hello again.  It is Friday and I am looking forward to the weekend.  I am working both days but I get to sleep in a little later and Saturday is my evening to hang with my husband.  I don't know what we will be doing, probably having a game night.  It will be fun.

My treat for today is TicTac holders.  This is one of my husband's least favorite treats but I love making the boxes so he  knows they will be in the countdown somewhere.  I used two patterns.  I like the snowflake one the best.  But the ornament is cute, too.

Have a great day and don't forget to come back tomorrow for day 9.

Christmas Countdown - Day 7

Hello and good morning.

I just adore the gable boxes.  I have made quite a few of them.  In fact, you will see some more of them over the next few weeks.  This set has a Santa, a Mrs Claus, a Girl Elf and a Boy Elf.  They are just so cute.  I found the pattern on Silhouette Online.

Have a great day and I will see you again tomorrow for Day 8.

Christmas Countdown - Day 6

Happy Hump Day.  The Elementary age kids at my job just love hump day.  We always ask what day it is and they will yell at the top of their lungs that it is HUMP DAY.

Today, I filled these cute little triangles with lots of candy and then added a print & cut pattern to the outside.

Have a great day and I will see you tomorrow with Day 7.

Christmas Countdown - Day 5

Good Tuesday morning.  This is one of those gifts that I use every Christmas.  I have enough for stockings and then a couple of extras for the countdown.  I fill them with something different every year.  This year I used M&Ms.

I found them at Hobby Lobby.  They have the Santa ones and also Snowmen.  Extra durable so I can use them over and over.

Have a great day and I will see you again tomorrow with day 6.

Christmas Countdown - Day 4

Good morning.  I just love these.  I filled them with chocolate, of course.

Here is the pattern if you want to make some.  Just be careful when putting them together.  The slot on the top is real close to the edge and tears easily.

Have a great day and I will see you tomorrow with day 5.

Christmas Countdown - Day 3


Here is my surprise for day 3.  It isn't one of my favorites.  It just seems plain.  Oh well,  they will enjoy the Reese's Peanut Butter Cups that are inside.

I found the pattern on Silhouette Online.

Have a great day and I will see you tomorrow with day 4.

Christmas Countdown - Day 2

Good morning.  The fun has begun.  I just love leaving these gifts in odd spots around the house.

I saw similar jars in the store and I just had to make some.  Once every thing dried, I filled them with M&Ms and the second day was done.

Have a great day and see you tomorrow with day 3.
