Great job Lindsey!  You win $5 worth of ipaper!


My repin today is a combo deal.
Part 1 came via Kimberly Stokes 
originally from Just a Girl.

and Part 2 came via Sarah Van Beveren
originally from Kim McCrary

Since the kids are all grow'd up, I liked the idea of an
activity based advent.  Un grow'd up kids like toys and candy.
Hmmmm...maybe I'll throw in a few toys and candy for myself!
Anyhow...I also liked the wrapped matchbooks - so pretty. 
My fridge is stainless...ever decide to stick a magnet to that?  Hah! 
 I decided my mom's fridge needed a cheery Christmas makeover instead.

So here's the scoop.

I chose my supplies -
    • Amber Ink ipapers printed on Kraft
    • matchboxes - the cheap kind .
    • round 1/4 " ceramic magnets
    • odds and ends embellishments from my old stash. 
Then I wrapped matchboxes and decorated them, glued a magnet to the back
and put the activities inside (checked the calendar and coordinated every doggone one)
and then I put a little brad on the side to make it like a drawer.  See that green button?  Cute right?

Finally and I mean finally
I arranged them on my mom's fridge.

And whatayaknow.
It turned in to an advent Christmas tree!


Your turn.
One random winner gets a $5 gift certificate.
For what?
