Brilliant! How did December creep up on us so quickly?


This is so lovely Alexa :D What a great idea! I'm excited to see the results of your matchbox crafting... An advent calendar by any chance?! xx


ooh that is soooo clever Alexa I love it! Hope all is well with you sending hugs... also have you realised there is a chat on FB about another potential bloggers weekend??

Very clever & creative idea! Can't avoid the C word!!! Got to plan ahead. I have to start doing the same too :) Enjoy your weekend. Pxx


That's lovely Alexa, what a clever idea. I made an advent row of houses last week at a retreat. It is starting to feel a lot like Christmas.... hope you manage to get your matchboxes made and have lots of fun with your little ones.x


Oh, now this is just super cute!
Evidence of the C season is everywhere but I am avoiding saying it as much as possible!

Fabulous little tags Alexa x
I'm afraid we can no longer hide from the C word as it's everywhere we look...


so clever on the tag, it looks great. Getting all nostalgic for creating with 24 matchboxes

That little tag is just lovely Alexa. I usually like to keep the C word firmly in December, where it belongs! Teaching card classes means it has had to come out to play a little earlier this year. Have fun with the matchboxes :o)

I love the little tag.


Oh, they are lovely Alexa. Absolutely lovely!


ps..we've been suffering from a little bit of Christmas creep here. We mad mince pies!

Your tag is scroll stoppingly beautiful. So clever.

Also there are a lot of C words that came to mind. The first is too rude to be typed here, the second is too horrible to think of as I lost most of my family and friends to that disease. So glad I looked again at the title.

My 11 year old son was just commenting on how quickly this season crept up on us. Time really is flying by if an 11 year old notices.

What a perfect tag! I'm collecting up a few photos of old typewriters to use on a layout about my typing journey - learning & winning awards in middle school right up to teaching keyboarding!


Brilliant tag Alexa!


Fab! I love how you have inserted the piece of typing into the photo - clever idea!


This is sooooo cute, you did well with Sian's prompt! The Christmas season starts for me the Sunday after our Thanksgiving and this year that even meant December :) Have fun with the Little One and the Big One :)


What an adorable little tag Alexa - and so clever to put the typed message scrolling out of the typewriter photo! It is definitely feeling like (yes, I'll say it for you) CHRISTMAS around here. My shopping is just about done thanks to the Internet. Hallelujah.


Super cute tag!


Clever idea Alexa.

Prairie Jill

Love the tags! What a clever idea.


Lovely tag! Great idea with this typing machine!
Hugs from Poland!


Love the tag! We're of mixed minds in this house - I start thinking of the C word right after our Santa Claus parade (the middle of November) while DH is content to wait till 2 weeks before.


Just beautiful as is your wintery header xxx.


So perfectly thought out and executed! I LOVE them!


These are lovely Alexa...I so wish i still had my old typewriter! x

What a great tag - enjoy your visit from important ones of all sizes :)


I hope you enjoyed playing in the flour and butter, no doubt preparation for the visitors to come. Enjoy!

Love the tag - I can't wait to do a match-box advent for the grand-kids - well actually I can (but not tooooo many years!)
