Christmas Countdown, Day 17 (The last day!)

17

IT’S CHRISTMAS EVE! How are we here already?!

Well, seeing that it’s the last day of “Christmas Countdown”, which has been super fun, I am going to do a recap of all the fun posts over the last 20 days! (All these words are ricocheting back on me! Have I really posted everyday for 20 days? Wow!)

My First post for Christmas Countdown I introduced you all into what I was doing, then I talked about My Family’s favorite Christmas music. If you would like to read that post, click →here←.

My Second post was “Christmas-y Fashion” 🤣 There wasn’t much to this post, but it was funny! Click here.

My Third post was pictures from around my house that we had recently decorated.   Click here to visit!

My Fourth post was about our favorite Christmas Cookies. Come see it here.

My Fifth post  Was about food (my favorite!) and food traditions. They’d love to have you see them!

The Sixth post was about Christmas Movies we like. It was a fun one. Visit here.

Our Seventh post was on the topic of gift wrapping. I liked this one(: Click here to see it.

The Eighth post was about Christmas fun, and I told what our favorite fun activities are at Christmas. It’s here, if you want to come!

My Ninth post I chose “Events” as the topic. Clickedy Clack over here.

The Tenth post was about Fun Facts! I really liked this one. I learned some things I didn’t know! Check that out here.

The Eleventh post was about weather. I don’t know why I chose this, but I guess it makes sense! (haha!) Here! Click here!

My Twelfth post was about Christmas Cookies (again) because I didn’t do all my favorites justice! Here ’tis!

I had day 13 about Decorations, Day 14 about Christmas Books, Day 15 about presents, and day 16 about some of the art that i’ve done recently.

And today is the Grand Finale! The Eve of Christmas day!

I hope you all have a very Merry Christmas!

“Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you, he is the Messiah; the Lord. This will be a sign to you: you will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger. Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God saying: Glory to God in the highest and on earth peace to those whom he is pleased.”

Luke 2:11-14(:

HO! HO! HO!

Hello all!

Are you doing well?

I hope you are!   *hug*

Y’all know how much I love art, and everything that goes with it, (brush lettering, letter art, drawings …) so today I’m posting, for “Christmas Countdown”, some of the things I’ve done in the art category(:

I actually did a post like this last year, and if you would like to see it, click here.

(Warning: I believe my art work and lettering have come a tiny way since last year…😜)

This is the wax seal combination I did to match the collage on the front.

Christmas Countdown, Day 13

Hey!

Today for “Christmas Countdown” the topic is going to be…..

DECORATIONS!

My favorite(:

We always, for probably most of my life, Have gone out Thanksgiving night and go a little way down the road and purchase a 7-8 foot Christmas tree. (It’s and 8-9 footer at this house, but at our old house we had to get a 7 foot tree!) We come home and pull all of our Christmas Decorations out of the attic. Ornaments, Garland, Lights, wreaths, Bows, Small trees, and anything else that might be stashed up there(:

This year we also went to Hobby Lobby while they had their Christmas sale and picked up some extra garland and a star and some red ornaments(:

The tree with the star and red ornaments we bought.

We went with a simple tree this year, using the red ornaments and star, and we decorated the faux tree with our regular ornaments.

How do you decorate your house? What kind of decorations do you have? Do you LOVE Hobby Lobby? (:

Come back soon! (or tomorrow!)

6 DAYS UNTIL CHRISTMAS!

Today I am going to revisit Christmas Cookies, Because, I mean, who can ever have to many Christmas cookies! (and, I really didn’t do all of my favorites justice😂)

Last year we made a lot of different kinds. A few include:
