30 Days Of Gift Giving Blog Hop! ~ Day 13

Its Day 13!
and I'm at it again!

I made a couple of Countdown Calendars. i only got 2 done, though I had more planned. But I've been really in a bad funk and its hard to see straight thru all my tears.  I try to focus and I just can't with all those tears and emotions I've been stuffing for almost 3 yrs are just flowing over. Trying to be stronger than I am and pretending everything will get better. I won't admit defeat and I'll keep on trudging along and fight til the end. But anyhow, you don't need to hear me whine. Your here to see what I've made. There are 2 types of Countdown Calendars I made. One is in a Picture frame and you can write the numbers with a white board marker each day.  That one I did for Hannuka.  The other one I made with those plastic picture frames. I punched holes with my cropodile in the frame and thru the "tags" for the numbers to countdown and used jump rings to attach. You can do these for any holiday or event you have planned. Using die cuts, ribbons, flowers etc.  I'd do a video but as I mentioned earlier i can't seem to stop crying so I'd be baubling thru the whole thing and my camera is really a peice of you know what. So here are a few pictures.

The Hannuka one is in an 8 x10 frame.  If you'd like to order one just email me with details. these I sell for $25 + shipping

This is a 5x7 Acrylic stand alone frame. If you'd like to order one of these again just email me. These I sell for $15 + shipping
