Christmas Excitement AND 12 Days of Christmas Give Away


It is day EIGHT of our 12 Days of Christmas Give Away! Each day I will give away a small prize (6x6 paper pack, or embellishment pack...etc.)to someone who has left a comment. That is all you have to do...leave a comment and your name goes in the drawing for a little goodie! Each day I will feature on my blog something that is a part of my Christmas. Just want to spread some Christmas cheer! So today for the EIGHTH day of Christmas I am sharing with you my way to build some Christmas excitement. This is probably the easiest Christmas advent you could possibly make. The little stockings are the perfect vehicle to tuck away Christmas treats and open up each day. The possibilities are endless. You could put an activity in each day to do with your family...scriptures that talk about the birth of Christ...candy...little Christmas toys...whatever will work for you and your family to build that Christmas excitement! I found these little girl stockings (aren't they cute?) in the dollar bin at Wal-Mart. You just hang them up with clothespins. I glued a circle to a scalloped circle and then added on the number of each day leading up until Christmas and glued those to the stockings. So EASY!! Now for the winner of day SEVEN...............................Stella!!
Stella you can send me your address at cheryljunegirl@hotmail.com so I can send you your prize! Hope you ALL are feeling the EXCITEMENT of Christmas! HUGS, Cheryl
