25 Day Countdown to Christmas ~ Recap

Nov 27, 2012

I had so much fun help­ing my nieces Made­lyn and Bel­lie cre­ate their 25 Day Count­down to Christ­mas project over the Thanks­giv­ing week­end. They were so excit­ed and worked so hard on each and every enve­lope. We had a flur­ry of cre­ativ­i­ty going on as you can see by all the blur­ry pho­tos. They were peel­ing, stick­ing, punch­ing, stamp­ing and Stick­ling like crazy. It was real­ly cute to watch their cre­ative minds at work.

Made­lyn loved accent­ing each of her envelopes with the rhine­stone gems and snowflakes. She is all about sparkle and bling. But what lit­tle girl isn’t? And GASP, a niece of mine that does NOT like sparkle and bling… well that would be so wrong.

Bel­lie LOVED these 3D stick­ers I found at the last minute in the $1 sec­tion at JoAn­n’s. She could not get the back­ing off of these fast enough. And this girl is a STICKLES girl… oh my word does she love Stick­les. After she accent­ed her envelopes it took a good 24 hours for the Stick­les to dry.

It was a fun few hours of laugh­ter, cre­ativ­i­ty and qual­i­ty time spent with two lit­tle girls that I love so much. It was not about mak­ing sure each stamped num­ber was per­fect­ly stamped (we do have one 41 instead of 14 in the group) or each stick­er was per­fect­ly stuck or that each drop of Stick­les was per­fect. It was about hav­ing fun with two lit­tle girls and mak­ing a mem­o­ry that will hope­ful­ly last them a life­time. I do believe I accom­plished that task as I know I will remem­ber this day for­ev­er.

Now they get to eager­ly antic­i­pate all the fun dai­ly activ­i­ties I have planned for them in Decem­ber. I’m just as excit­ed if not more than they are.
