This morning came the sudden realization that is it the 1st December on Tuesday!

I had planned to make an Advent Calendar ................. weeks ago!!

So this is what is keeping me busy today!
Trouble is now that it is nearly finished I think its a wee bit too sophisticated for my teenage son - I made it with................ well, with me in mind!!!

The idea came from the Craft Stamper magazine (last months).  It is 24 matchboxes (bought here) glued together,  painted initially with Gesso
and then metallic acrylic paint and edged with silver.

I then lovingly messed up embossed Mirri board with acrylic paint for the sides :-).
Its kept me quiet all afternoon!

I think son may have to do with a shop bought one! Bless!
Somehow I dont think he will  be bothered!

Love to all
