By the time this posts tomorrow we will know who won the Superbowl. I'd like to see the Pats win, but really I'm just watching for the commercials.
There's nothing more endearing than a large dog with a large stuffed animal. Sagan has always loved to carry around stuffies, much to my delight. I found this rather large plush dog at Pet Smart, and on sale too, so of course I bought it for him. Now puppeh has a puppeh.
My friend Ann has been painting rocks and leaving them around town as part of The Kindness Rock Project. Now, when I tried to get this going in 2012, it was an epic bust. But now it's really popular. Ann does such a fabulous job and I asked her if I could have her make me a whale rock! Isn't it ADORBS?
I took the bull by the horns and worked on each square of the advent calendar project. It took a few hours of steady work and my craft room looked like a craft store bomb went off. I really had no choice but to do all 24 in one afternoon. I'm quite happy with how it came out.
I hand painted the two teddy bears in space 1 because they were just plain wood. Raided my Christmas paper and altered art supplies to find the rest of the doo dads and backgrounds.
I tried to include as many Christmas symbols as possible. Joseph was too tall for the square with Mary and Jesus though. I also had to hand paint the tree in the second to last space, as it was all green. I wasn't sure paint would work on it but it came out pretty good.
I'm having trouble figuring out how to do the doors. I've tried and failed twice. Hoping that third time is the charm. Or, this might just end up being an altered art project instead of an advent calendar!
