Took a little time to check out some of my favorite blogs the other day. And stumbled across a post about Advent calendar boxes on Ali Edward's blog (click her name to go to her blog). Here's a link to the post Ali's Christmas Project #3 . Go read about the project. It sound really cool. And if you have kids, I'm sure they'll love it. I left a comment about the project on her blog, which I rarely do.
Here's what I said. "I think it would be cool to find a big (and ornate) frame from a estate sale, junk store, or yard sale and back it with plywood. You could use paint or decorative paper to decorate the plywood. Then you have a framed piece to hang. And it's reusable."So fast forward to today, when I'm checking a few blogs again. Friday, Ali posted a few replies and comments about the comments left by visitors on that post.
And I saw this comment by Ali, "3. loved the idea of a big old frame to go around the outside of the grouped boxes - may try that one next year"
So I go and check, I think I was the only one to mention the frame. So even if my family doesn't think I have good ideas...Ali does.
