Hints for a making a Christmas Advent

"Tis the Season for Christ"
A second option, "Tis the Season for Family"

Okay so this was a little while ago, like a couple of years. And I didn’t end up with one in the end. However I was in on the planning and what not and this is what I remember about the project. I hope it helps to answer some of the questions.
1. The back board was covered with 6 sheets of 12x12 papers.  The board was about 24 inches wide by about 36 inches long. We put the paper on with modge podge, distressed and then put the layer of modge podge .
2. The little squares (there are 25 of them) are 3 inches on each side. The pictures are attached on one side and paper and vinyl on the other. Remember to put the vinyl on the paper before you modge podge or it won’t stay on very well.
Each of the little squares is made of a really thin wood. They each have a little hole drilled through them. The large board has 25 little nails tapped into it. So basically the little square hangs on the board from a little nail.
A couple of tips...
Don’t try putting the squares onto the board until it is fully dry, (the large board and the little squares). It is super tempting to see what it is going to look like but it can take over a day sometimes for the stuff to full dry. I have found that modge podge never fully dries and will often stick to itself for even years later. For that reason I prefer weldbond. However, it dries quickly and takes practice to use. You really only get one chance with it.
If you have any other questions please feel free to ask and I will do my best to answer them for you.

Super Saturday Count Down is ON!

It's almost here, the day that we have all been waiting for...Super Saturday!!!

So here are a few last minute reminders of what is going on.
The fun starts at 9:00am at the church, if you signed up for the advent you are going to want to be there as early as possible as it is an all day project. The cupcake class is from 10:00 to 11:00, we don't want you to miss out so please be there on time. Also lunch will be from about 12:00 until 1:00, even if you didn't sign up for a project we would love to have you join us for lunch.
If you signed up for the advent calendar or the hanging magnet board you need to bring either a paper cutter or a pair of scissors. Please be sure to have your items labeled so you won't lose them. As always we will have lots of paper and paint but if you know that you want something specific please feel free to bring those along as well. And finally if you signed up to make a tutu and want to embellish it with ribbons and all the prettiness please make sure to bring some change to buy those items.
Our committee has been hard at work and we can't wait to share this day with you!

A New Advent Option

Here is another option for the already fantastic advent calendar. Instead of saying 'Tis the season for family' it says 'Tis the season for Christ'. It really is such a beautiful piece. If this is the option that you choose (because unfortunately you can still only do one) the photos are available at the book store. You will need 2 packages. There are several different packages to choose from just make sure that you choose one with no borders. Also remember that the squares are 3x3 inches.

Also all orders and money for Super Saturday is due by Friday!! We would love to have you come and join us so please have your orders in by then.

Order forms and money can be dropped off at Cara H.'s house or join us for playgroup at the church on Wednesday at 10:00.
