Activity Advent Calendar

Time for another Wee Memories  challenge.  This week we are taking it easy on you, it is a free for all.


 Our sponsor is Artful Delight and the prize is a Card Kit!


For my project I made an 'activity advent calendar', love Pinterest it is so full of great ideas and I so wish I would have thought of this when the kids were little.  Activities I have included are such things as (Decorate the house, Decorate the tree, Drive around and look at lights, bake cookies, play Apples to Apples, go on a family walk, go to Starbuck's (have to include that one), etc.)  I used these fabulous Vintage Flashcards from Pretty Little Studio.  I love Santa, I mean love Santa, especially the vintage cuties that are on these cards.  I purchased these last year but hoarded them, I didn't know what to do with them.  However, I wanted them out so I could look at them so I made them into an Advent Calendar Banner.  I adhered a small bag on the back to hold a tag with the activity printed on it.  Each Tag has a bit of Red V Striped Twill stapled to it.  I have also added bits and pieces of the Teresa Collins Christmas Home papers.


Everything is joined together and hung up with some Twine from The Twinery.

This is also for the City Crafter challenge - Santa Claus
