5 Days of Christmas ~ Day 2!

 
Hello & welcome to My Creative Time's "5" Days of Christmas"! This week we will be sharing w/you LOTS of last minute Christmas ideas, such as cards, layouts, home decor, 3-D items & what ever else come to mind that will help YOU get your juices flowing for the holiday! There will be a giveaway each day & a winner will be announced each day! Example, winner of Monday will be announced on Tuesday, winner of Tuesday will be announced on Wednesday.....and so on! 
You will see the different prizes each day on Emma's blog HERE! I hope we ALL inspire you this week! 
 
 
Today I wanted to share with you a kind of "Advent Calendar" however I didn't finish it.  Last week was so crazy with family for Thanksgiving and my daughters shower that I just couldn't get it together.  I was thinking it would be fun to have candy canes on the tree that could be plucked off each day until Christmas!
 
Even though it's December 3rd, I think this could still be doable for this year!

What a great idea for an Advent calendar - and no worries about not finishing it ahead of time. Adding a candy cane a day works, too! Your creativity never ceases to amaze!
