Gone, but not forgotten...

Having a crafty blog has an enormous amount of pressure that comes along with it. A good kind of pressure, but pressure none the less. If there is anyone that actually has stuck around, I have not stopped crafting I have just been a bad blogger. My plate has been 100% full the last month, but I am happy to report that I am back.

And...

I even have something to share.

A few months ago I picked up this little find at the goodwill for $3.99.





I am not entirely sure what it's intended purpose was, but after staring at it for a while and perusing other crafty blogs I decided what I wanted to do with it.

With two toddlers I thought it would be perfect for a Christmas countdown. I had actually seen a Halloween version (I would love to link back to that blog, but I have know idea where I saw it...apologies) and thought it was a very cute idea.

I picked up the little Merry Christmas sign at Hobby Lobby for $4.99. I used some good ol' E6000 and glued it to the top, taped off the back piece and painted half chalkboard, cut out some vinyl lettering with some scraps of vinyl and....voila!!
