I've been a busy girl and haven't had a chance to blog regularly this past week. In an effort to redeem myself, I'm posting a few pictures of a take-home project I am working on for the store where I teach.
I decorated this little lunchbox tin with one of this season's Making Memories Christmas lines, "Deck the Halls". I love the fact that the paper is heavy like cardstock and is double-sided, which provides lots of options for a project like this.
The box itself is a Christmas Countdown To-Do List. The cards are numbered from 25 down to 1, indicating the number of days left until Christmas. So on December 1, you would pull out the Day 25 card. You know all the things you need to do to get ready for Christmas, like...um...shop, bake cookies, make cards, etc.? I listed those tasks on the back of each of the cards.
Mind you, this is not my own personal list. I'm not good at all about getting ready for Christmas. (In fact, my own list would start on about December 22.) I pulled various lists from the Internet and put a few tasks on each day. Customers can take home the list and put the tasks on whichever days they prefer. Far be it from me to have everyone doing their shopping on December 23. Just because I do that doesn't mean it's advisable.
Practical or not, this was a fun little project to create. I will almost admit that it moved me a little bit more toward that holiday spirit.
