Getting My Merry Christmas Started....

I really want to make a Christmas banner like the ones below.  I don't have a fancy cutter machine, but I think I can cut those letters out by hand just fine!

One of my favorite things this time of year is chocolate advent calendars.  I saw some the other day at the grocery store and grabbed one for me Connor.  He may or may not need another one because I got into it.....I ate all his chocolate.  Bad Momma : /
And I posted this on Facebook the other day.  Look how teeny weeny these french fries are.  They were in Connor's happy meal.  TINY!
Hope you all have a great Monday!

A Christmas banner is on my decorating to-do list too. I've found a couple I want to copy from Pinterest. I think I can print the letters out myself and then put them on scrapbook paper to make something like the second pic you have posted.

I'm glad I'm not the only one getting ready for Christmas! (o:

I love the advent calendars too! I think we EACH need one this year! You ate all the chocolate? Ha, was it Godiva? Did you ever do a blog post on your follow up up Paleo? Like how was it?

I want to do a Christmas banner too to hang over a large mirror in our living room. Do you use regular paper to drink them out or cardstock?

I have been wanting an advent calendar this year soooo bad for C for Christmas. Saw one today at Kohl's that I almost got but it still was not "the one" :( Think im going to have to check out etsy but a chocolate one sounds good too.

All of the holiday craftiness on Pinterest has really got me wanting to do some major crafting for the holiday season!! Those banners are adorable and an Advent calendar is a must for the holiday season!!!
