IMGP1824 ……….I may just scream!
So, teenager is having a minor sulk re: Advent calendar, so guilt ridden Mum is making another one – with him in mind this time and not me!
Here it is under way!
And this is the helper I had today …………….NOT! IMGP1822
Blood, sweat and tears …..joking!
Matchboxes from Baker Ross

I am entering it into the following challenges

IMGP1830 Here's the completed one I started yesterday – think this one is mine – now off to ask OH's advice on what  to fill it with – hint, hint! LOL  Trouble is, men don't really do hint language do they?
Have a great week everyone

WoW, Wow wow!!!! They are true works of art and must have taken you ages, I love the purple one - my favourite as you know!!!
Yes, I am over the moon with my new toy and I know I am naughty but I have the snowflake folder so it would be a shame to have to wait till next Christmas to use it - wouldn't it!!!!!!

Both brilliant and you just knew it would happen didn't you? ;)

Husbands not so good at the hints no :D Try writing a big sign and tap dancing in front of him with it :D

Your advent boxes look wonderful :) And you're right, men don't do 'hint language' LOL. I mostly get my craft goodies online or at craft shows but there's a great little craft shop in Ossett; only small but considering that it's well stocked and the prices are fair, sometimes things are cheaper there than I've seen elsewhere.
