Countdown to Christmas! Days 1-4



My first matchboxes for the Countdown to Christmas Advent! I featured the first one by itself because there's just something always special about 'the first one' ;o) Thank you so much to Genie, Michelle, Valery and Angela for these beautiful little treasures! They are all so different and I am enjoying all the special touches with each and every one I open. Oh, what fun this is to open one each day!  I feel like a little kid again as I have not done an advent since my kids were little. With all the busy-ness right now, I decided it would be much better for me to feature four at the time until we make it to Christmas. Thank you again ladies! Awesome!

  2. Bonnie, I received one of your lovely boxes as my Day 5 box. I don't know how you handcrafted all of those cute little snowflake ornaments. They're really fantastic. Enjoy your holiday, and your daily treats.

  3. Hi Bonnie,
    Thanks for letting me know that you have my No.3
    box. I have your No.4 Box. Isn't that a coincidence. I think the snowflake is cute and so original. I am having fun opening my matchboxes up each day too!

  10. I am so happy you liked my #1. I was so nervous about the swap as it was my first. It was such fun making the name tags and the number tags and the boxes themselves. Thanks for your kind words. Hugs and Happy Holidays....Genie
