Advent Calendar Palooza: Simply Gilded 12 Days of Christmas Day 12

It is time to open up the final package of the Simply Gilded advent calendar. From feeling the packaging,  I knew it wasn’t going to be washi, so I wasn’t all that surprised when this super cute and adorable key chain popped out. I like the various charms used, the only thing missing is a […]

Advent Calendar Palooza: 12 Days of Burton Day 12

For the last day of 12 Days of Burton, So Berry Busy gives us a whole kit! I appreciate that the kit incorporates many of the characters from Burton movies into one place.  I like that it has date covers, full boxes, lots of quarter and half boxes, and a weekend banner – all of […]

Advent Calendar Palooza: Cricketmas Day 1

I could tell by the shape of the package as I felt it, today’s Cricket Paper Co envelope was not going to be stickers, but for the life of me I couldn’t even guess what it was.  0erhaps that’s because I am not a pin collector,  because after I opened it, it was fairly obvious […]

Advent Calendar Palooza: Jimmy Beans Craftvent Day 24

We’ve made it to the final day!  For day 24 of Craftvent, Jimmy Beans gave us finishing material.   There’s a darning needle for weaving in ends, a tag you can see on, some beads for tassels if you want them,  and a package of Soak. The finishing items are a nice touch! Now that all […]

Advent Calendar Palooza: Simply Gilded 12 Days of Christmas Day 11

I think today might be the last roll of washi in Simply Gilded’s advent calendar.  I have felt up all the packages, and tomorrow’s does not feel like a roll, so when I opened today’s I wasn’t sure what to expect.   Would it be an intricate pattern like the swans or stars?  Would it be […]

Advent Calendar Palooza: 12 Days of Burton Day 11

Today’s package from So Berry Busy made me smile.  When I bought the 12 Days of Burton, I think I assumed that each day would be themed around a specific movie, but instead the packages seem a bit more random, which has made predicting the contents hard.  For day 11, we have products inspired buly […]

Advent Calendar Palooza: Simply Gilded 12 Days of Christmas Day 10

I know I continue to gush over the packaging for Simply Gilded’s advent calendar, but it is just so pretty.  I have been thinking about doing advent calendar style gifts for friends next year, so I wonder if Irene will tell me her source. Today, SG gives us more washi, this time in the 5mm […]

Advent Calendar Palooza: 12 Days of Burton Day 10

So Berry Busy’s artistic talent truly amazes me.  I hope Blaine knows how talented she truly is.  Each say that I open the package in the 12 Days of Burton box, I am always delighted. Today, Fang is on a dashboard, goes down the rabbit hole in homage to Alice in Wonderland,  and celebrates the […]
