My girlfriends and I try to do this each year and theirs are always beautiful. And finished. Mine? Umm, some years I finish mine and some years I don't. This year is going to be one of the years I DO finish! This year we're all using our library drawers from 7gypsies. I think I'm gonna have to do a little number on mine with some heirloom white spray paint- I'm just not feeling this dark brown stain.
For the entire project, I'm using whatever I have in my Christmas stash- that means no matchy-matchy papers (just not my style), little bits and bobs of years past, vintage images, stamps... you get it. It's a free-for-all! I did find some great little word stickers from Cosmo Cricket that are gonna be fun to use and all the numbers are cut from a Teresa Collins piece of paper.
I have yet to decide what I'll take a photo of... because I have no Christmas in my house yet. Still have to pack away all the autumn! Yeah, I'm a slacker.
So to those of you who are ready to go- good for you! For the rest of you who have a gazillion distractions and can't seem to finish anything you start- best of luck! I'm with you all the way.
