Christmas Countdown on Canvas!

Hello!! 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

The "I Feel the Love Project" will be making Christmas Cards during the months of November and early December to be given to the children who will be spending the holidays at Children's Hospital Central California.
We believe that delivering hand crafted cards at a major holiday such as Christmas can promote the well being of the mind, body, and spirit of the children staying at Children's Hospital Central California for the Christmas holiday.
