I am so excited about your Creative Christmas Countdown. We had so much fun with it last year. I have literally been looking forward to it for weeks already! Thank you for all the hard work and thoughtfulness that you put into your blog, it truly is a blessing to so many.

I’m excited about this project for my 4 year old. I just found out that my local Michaels is having this great 40% off your entire bill sale this Sunday. Any chance we could get the supplies list *early*????

Is the first supply list available yet? It is less than a week away and I am getting giddy with anticipation. :)



Alissa Marquess November 26, 2012 at 1:19 pm

Finally have the supply list published! Glad you’re excited, it’ll be fun :)

Thank you for bring us such an amazing countdown. I’m new to the countdown this year and I’m very excited. Have been on a pound shop trawl today for the few bits I think I’ll need. It mentions above that we will be sent an email about a week before with a supply list etc but I haven’t received anything yet, I have checked I am signed up so was just wondering if it’s been sent out yet? Just want to say thank you in advance to all the contributing bloggers for the activities, so much time and thought has gone in to this. I will be attempting to blog about my efforts on my very fledgling blog and will of course link back here and to individual contributors to give full credit where it’s due : ) (p.s Is that the correct thing to do, so new to this?)
