I finally gave crafting a try! I figured I start with something that does not require much in terms of good vision, since I still feel quite handicapped in that department.... And I have gotten a lovely package from Australia - you guess right! I could not hold back any longer and needed some of Kylie Purtells ( Happy Little Stampers) lovely new stamps, although this set is from her first release. I just had to have it. Those big bold numbers are just perfect to use for a simple advent calendar.
I made it for my sister, who pampered us with weekly 3 course meals throughout my period of forced inactivity.
I had those little baggies in my stash and just filled them with goodies - of course I stamped them first. I put a brad in to close them and strung them up with Bakers twine. The branch is from my garden. I liked it, with all those things growing on it.
I also glittered those acorns - also from my garden. If you are interested on how to do that, I can make a tutorial and post it.
