It is the 2nd and by now you know that means it is blog hop time.  This month I am so excited to see what everyone makes because it is NON themed hop.  I wanted to showcase a non card project that I made for a chinese auction fundraiser.  The base is a painting canvas and the thumb tacks are the kind you get 300 in a pack from the dollar store.  I used embroidery floss and sewed (by hand) the stockings.  I used the small A Muse Studio stocking die and our new cherry felt (did you know I love felt????).  I stamped the felt with slate and it stamped beautifully.  Ok on to pictures, they say they are worth a thousand words so I will shut up now.

I just love the mini clothes pins and cherry and white twine.  I grew up with an advent calendar and I thought this would be a great way to have something your family can use over and over again. the stocking can fit a little piece of candy or even quotes about the season.  Well your next stop is Tami’s blog. I hope you enjoy all the inspiration. Just in case you get lost.
