Altered christmas clipboard....

Here is the christmas clipboard countdown I made a early lol..

I used my leftover scrapbooking paper. The hardest part of this whole thing was that dang tree! It was hard making the scraps into a tree lol... The numbers and their holders were cut from my Cricut cartridge George basic shapes. I tried the magnet thing for the backs, but didnt have any spare washers so I glued strips of magnets on the back and then glued paperclips on the board itself..well that didnt work I used big brads and used metallic glue and glued the brads on the boards and bend the ends up, so now I can hang the numbers on each one..

I am planning on making TONS of these!!!!

Oh, I got my clipboards at the Dollar tree..this is a mini one.

Pics of things I did

Matchbox advent tree..dont have the numbers added or the other embellishments yet, but wanted to give you all an idea.

Below is the christmas card recipe box. I wanted something to organize my cards and swaps that im going to do. I just cut
die cuts of christmas things from my Cricut Cartridge Christmas Cheer. For the "recipe" cards I just inked the outside of all the cards in coresponding christmas colors. I think it turned out really cute!

What I did today

Today I was actually pretty productive. I made a christmas card swap thingy. Like a recipe file. Each index card has a name and address on it. Ive filled them in different catagories....Like family & friends, Magical holiday home card swap and My merry christmas card swap. It turned out really cute. Ill take some pics and try to post them. I also did a matchbox advent tree. I need to use large matchboxes,I used small so the countdown tree is super small. I also watched Snowglobe while drinking hot chocolate. All in all, it was a great Rudy day! 6 more months!!!

Rudolph day is tomorrow!

Tomorrow im planning on making my list for my Christmas in July party. Its just going to be me and my bestest 3 girlfriends. I was going to do a dough swap, but I havent had a chance to find a good cookie recipe that will freeze well, so I think ill just do a brunch. I'll probably just make up some cookies and some other yummy things and we will sit around a chat!

Im also going to try to start on my cards. I keep saying that Ill do them, but I start doing other things instead lol.. Im doing a few christmas card exchanges, so I better get on the ball!! Im going to be gone for a week and a half in July, so thats cutting in on my Christmas in July festivities!!

Well thats it for now! Ill post Thursday on what I actually did!

Santa Clause 3

I just LOVE this kids and I just got done watching it! Now I think im going to make some hot chocolate and pull out my christmas recipe binder and think of ideas of what im going to do to it.

I started copying my christmas recipes onto my cute new Gooseberry Patch recipe cards that came with my kit. They look SO cute now!

I also started to plan my Christmas in July party. Its going to be a Dough swap....that way, no one is baking in the 100' weather and also, this way, we can have cookies anytime we want! Now, I just need to figure out what kind of cookie Ill make. I make my annual Andie candie cookie (everyones fav) at my December cookie/ornament swap, so I want to find something just as wonderful, but different for my July swap!

a Surprise Rudy day!

So today, I had a surprise rudy day!! I had the christmas bug in me! I started going through my notebook...again and cleaning it out! I found so many little things that didnt work for me last year, so this year im making it strictly for me. I normally print off everything in the countdown and only end up doing 3/4 of it because certain things dont pertain to me. Im sick of wasting paper!!! So hopefully this will be the most organized christmas ever!
