ADVENT CALENDAR BLOG HOP

Another awesome blog hop organized by the amazing Ruthie! I've had a wonderful time participating and I hope you are all having a great time hopping!

If you arrived here from Tracy's blog then you are on the right track! If you arrived here another way and want to start at the beginning then go here to Angelica's blog.

Well however you arrived.....I'm glad your here! Check out my Youtube video on the calendar I created that was so very inpsired by the awesome Christina. I did a calendar like this last year after watching a Youtube video by her. I've used my Cricut, chipboard die cut pieces from Brenda Walton and stickers. My calendar pages are cut from a Stampin' Up top note die.



Now for some blog candy.....Sign up to follow my blog, leave a comment along with your email addy for the chance to win a $10 Michaels giftcard and I might just have to through in a little Christmas surprise too!

  131. Yolie,
    I remember watching your video from last year so I went back and found it on YouTube and watched it again (November 11, 2009) and also found the one that Christina did. These are such a cute idea -- I think I might do one and add seasonal inspirations to each day -- like read The Night Before Christmas and remember your favorite childhood Christmas book, watch Muppet Christmas Carol, read the lyrics to Jingle Bells, bake and decorate sugar cookie (include recipe), etc.
    Thanks for all your inspiration -- I look forward to watching your videos!
