I am super excited to show you a project I did over the weekend. Christmas advent Calenders usually have a hidden chocolate or treat of some kind but I didn't want to confuse Michael. I want him to learn the concept of a countdown, the treats would distract him so I made this Fun Christmas Calender countdown on canvas!!!! Michael loves it as much as I do.
As I was visiting my super blogger friends the other day I got inspired by three of them!!!
( Kristan , Karon and Yvonne)
Kristan - cracked paint
Karon - Advent Calender
Yvonne- using mixed mediums
