First Project from my Craft Weekend

Hi Everyone,

I hope your weekend has started well.  I haven't got a card for you today but I wanted to start sharing my projects that I did at my craft retreat last weekend.  They are all Christmas related and this is the first one!

This is an Advent Calendar made from a wooden cutting board.  The edges of the cutting board were painted and then inked up when dry.  We used Bo Bunny Back to Backs Blitzen paper to cover the board, this pack is just gorgeous.  The lamp-post, mantlepiece and presents were all cut out from the paper pack.  Lots of glitter, GA and ribbon!  

What do you think?  Its a lovely alternative to the wooden draw advent calendars that are around, which are also gorgeous!  But this doesn't take as long to finish! 

Will be back with another project soon.  Well I had better get on, lots to do today. 

Have a great Saturday everyone.

 Love and Hugs
