I bought this advent calender during the after Christmas sales. It was my intention to give it a bit more "pizazz".
Out came the scrapbooking paper, embellishments and glue. I spent HOURS on the layout. (When it is actually Christmas time I will write a post going into more detail.)
Sweet boy was off on Monday for the MLK holiday and he loves to craft. So we spent some time gluing everything on. We had a good time and he felt proud of our creation.
Mr. Decor, you know the guy who has a degree in aeronautics and actually works with rocket scientists, took one look at it, smiled and said "You and your glitter." (It's true, it's a sickness.)
Then he asked, "Do the doors actually open?"
As I was fixing dinner, I half mindedly said, "Yes, of course they open."
Mr. Decor then proceeds to open and close every single door. Almost...
Houston we have a problem with doors 2, 20 and 21. They are so over embellished that they can't fully open.
Sweet boy came to my deflated rescue. "Mom, we're not changing it. I'll just have to be extra careful when I open those doors."
I love this boy. His wife will too some day.
Oh and yes, I have no number 13. Anyone out in blog land have a lucky 13 something or other about the size of a quarter they want to send me? :)
