I hope everyone had a nice Thanksgiving. It is so nice to have a long weekend. I did not go shopping at 5 AM on Friday. I am not a morning person! I made a few of these countdown to Christmas chalkboards last week before my attention turned to Thanksgiving dinner. I like the idea of putting them on an easel. That way they can go on a desk, the counter or even a night stand. I think kids would like to keep track of how many days until Santa arrives. For me, I can not believe it is already 24 days.

This is the first one I made. After making the other two, this chalkboard needs a little more do- dads added to it! This always happens to me. It will be "do-dadded up" by tonight. Then I must give them out before the end of the week. Let the countdown begin!

WOW! You did a great job these! I love them!

I can't believe that it's only 24 days away either!

Those are great! Glad you enjoyed your Thanksgiving. I can't believe it's only 24 days left. I think I'm going to be doing a few very late nighters. Even though it gets really busy, I still enjoy all the projects.

A note for A LITLE BIRDIE TOLD ME SO. I am having a problem leaving a comment on your blog. Glad to hear you had a nice Thanksgiving. I love Anthropologie.

Denise, your friends must love seeing you coming with gifts in your hands. These are precious.

I haven't bought the first present yet. I have started making lists and setting my lunch time strategy. I work close to almost every store I might want to shop at. I decide what I want to purchase for each person, where the best place to buy it will be and then everyday on my lunch break I do as much as I can. I've got a lot to do!

ps, I got your note over on my blog this morning. Blogger has been rather testy lately. Hope it will be better soon.
