Only 11 days til Christmas!!! (please excuse the pic…it is missing a few cotton balls) We have had a lot of fun counting down the days to Christmas with this Santa Beard Calendar. Each day the kids add another piece of Santa’s beard. The day of Christmas we add Santa’s nose. This has been a great way to add fun and excitement while the anticpation builds up for the kids. It is also a great way to teach number recognition and counting. My son is 4 and loves to count the cotton pieces of Santa’s beard before he puts the new piece up. He is so sweet and enjoying the Christmas fun! You can find yours at Target in the Dollar Spot.
So after discovering my paintbrushes turned moldy and we had no brown paint, I wasnt so sure this post would be possible. I am still trying to figure out how my paintbrushes started growing hair…but that is a whole nother story I guess. I decided to overcome this challenge. I sent my daughter to the bathroom to get qtips and I started mixing paint to make a brown. I finally came up with the perfect concoction of red, yellow, and blue and got a pretty (yes a pretty!) brown and the qtips quickly became replacements for the moldy brushes. Earlier in the day we found plain tee’s in the closet and decided they would be perfect for making our turkey shirts. So after much disaster we finally created these beauties to wear on Thanksgiving. Pretty simple to make and all you really need is a cute lil hand, paint, and a tee.
If you haven’t heard…I am hosting my first Multi Vendor Holiday Giveaway.
My new friend Julie is the owner of A Charmed Life. She creates beautiful jewelry and accessories. She is also one of the sponsors in the giveaway. From necklaces to key chains, she can personalize each piece with personal pictures and charms. My daughter was quick to fall in love with this beautiful piece.
The bracelet is a fun bangle with lots of beautiful charms. My daughter enjoyed the jingling of the charms and couldnt stop looking down at her wrist. She said, “it is the prettiest thing I have ever worn!” Other favorites available in her shop:
