Stampin’ Up! Rustic Christmas Countdown Kit – You NEED THIS!!

Good morning and Happy Happy Hawwwwwmp Day!!  This is ALSO the last day of our Free Shipping Special so….if you haven’t partaken yet – now’d be a good time!

And – you MIGHT want to add one – or FIVE! – of these super cool Rustic Christmas Countdown Kits!  I got three myself – I put one together last night – and I think I’ll give the other two to my friends – I think they’ll have fun putting them together – AND their tiny humans will love the Christmas tradition of opening a little surprise each day in December! It was certainly one of my favorite parts of the holidays!

This is a non-stamping kit – so…no inky fingers!  And it goes together speedy quick, too.  Bonus!

Everything you’ll need to make the 25 little paper pouches is in the box – including a roll of thick twine that you can use to hang the envelopes on the wall…

…after filling them with a little treat, of course!  Because I’m helpful that way – I did an ops check for you.

Success – Ghiradelli Squares fit perfectly!

There are four different designs  – which one is your fave?

This is mine – and you’ll make 7 of this one.

My NEXT fave?

I love this poinsettia with the gold foil numbers!

And the popped up berries on the holly sprig on the final design even have a little “dusting” of “snow”! 🙂

You know – I expected to like this kit (hello? Did I mention I got THREE of them?!) but…I really love it!  The size of the envelopes is perfect and the pine sprigs and Christmas-y foliage – in Mossy Meadow, Old Olive, Gold and Cherry Cobbler – is just right!

You know – the Stampin’ Up! graphic shows a really cool possibility for showing off your new countdown calendar!

Ha!  THEY show them with chocolate inside, too – guess they know us pretty well, huh?!?

So.  I hope you’ll pick up a couple three of these kits – one for yourself – and a couple for family and friends! 🙂

Finn Fan Fix

Yesterday – we walked some customer gifts up to the mailbox.

As I approached the gate – still on the inside – I saw the neighbors’ dog hanging just outside.  Prolly “leaving a message” for Finn on the side of the trash can! 🤔🤔

I hollered at him to go home – truth be told if he gave any indication of wanting a NEW home…. – but…that’s another story.

So – off he went.  Meanwhile, though – the Man was on full alert!

I walked with him to the gate, holding his collar.  And then…the dilemma.  I didn’t want to take him down to the mailbox with me – in case our visitor hadn’t really left.

Deciding to test the obedience – I put him on a down-stay just inside the gate, slipped thru and walked to the mailbox.

I MIGHT have stolen a few glances back. Trust – but verify! 🙂

With the mail safely deposited in the box – I headed back to my Obedience Champion.

I kept waiting for him to pop up – but…he didn’t!

I KNOW!  That was a long-distance stay – with the added distraction of…a MESSAGE!….right where he could…smell it!

The self-restraint was epic!

So proud of my Finny! 🙂

Of course – on the way back to the house – he forgot his name and became temporarily Mom-Voice Deaf so he couldn’t hear me calling him to COME ON! – but…🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️

These things take time.  I mean – he’s ONLY eight!! 😳😳😳

    That is such a cute kit! Love that it’s quick and easy to put together too! Are you going to fill it up (and empty it too!) for 25 days in October, 25 days in November and 25 days in December?? Since it’s done early, you’ll definitely want to make sure that it gets put to good use. 😉 Finn is a good boy! Glad that he stayed right where he was supposed to! 🙂
