Nicely done! Every day I say I'm going to work on a December Daily mini album and I've yet to do it. Maybe I just need to turn off the computer... ;)

I love the cookie sheet advent calendar! I happen to have a cookie sheet in my craft room just for the type of project!

Squiddy said...

cookie sheets, makes me think of bedlinen, but no, you mean those long-unused biscuit trays down beside my oven :) Wonder if there's room for them in my craft room now!

Two very different projects, but both of them are special! I love the whimsical look of Pinky's project, and the gorgeous vintage look of the second book!
