one of my favorite things...

to do is give new life to
ordinary objects.

i shared about my crazy
love of Christmas yesterday
and showcased an advent idea.
today's post will feature
another advent idea, one that
anyone can make and is
stinking cute, i think. it's
also all about reusing.


cut the yardstick down
to 26 inches and
voila! you've got 25 days
to Christmas! add little
wood spacer dealies from
your local hobby lobby, antique
buttons, wire, ribbon and other
little pretties,
decoupaged dominoes and you
have a lovely little advent
ornament organizer.

beginning dec. 1st, simply
take down the domino ornament
and hang on your tree!
this is a wonderful visual
for the little ones in your
life. it can be personalized
to your particular taste as


mother mary and the Holy Child.

santa and those adorable old fashioned
chubby cheeked kids.

go ahead and make one yourself -
i'd LOVE to see a photo!
create to your heart's content...
there's only
a little more than 6 months to
Christmas!!! yippppeeeeeee!!!
