Easy Holiday Fun Frame and WINNER!!!

Are you running around with the Holiday hustle and bustle or are you an early bird who prepared way ahead of time for the season? Well, either way, I have a quick project for you today that you can prepare months ahead of time or within a few minutes if you need a quick little holiday treat to give or to add to your own space. You've probably noticed by now that I love to recycle and upcycle! So for this project I used a little frame that cost me less than 33 cents from Target Dollar isle to create a dry erase board to post silly little holiday sayings for my boys.

One of our amazing sponsors for the upcoming issue of Scraps of Color E:spire is Signify Pink - Glimpses! I had never used their products prior to this issue and let's just say I'm a fan now! I love the coordinating  fun, bright colors of their Merry and Bright collection! It was really easy and fun to create with this line! And for my project all I had to do was cut one of the 4x6 journaling tags from the 12x12 double sided tags/journaling frames page and stick it into my little frame! Bam! An instant holiday fun dry erase board. The cute little stickers are from the Merry and Bright collection too. And, if you happen to pick up this collection another thing that you can do is personalize your frame with names or initials- it's a great way to use up your sticker sheet! These little frames make great teacher gifts too and of course you can add even more embellisment to suit your taste! If I had about 25 more I would use this as a holiday project for my son's class and maybe hang a few candy canes or other treats from the frame and a mini dry erase marker! Hmmm....I think I need to make an impromptu trip to Target! :)

Anyway, I hope I have helped you with a quick little project that you can make for gift giving, crafting with your kiddos, or something fun for your craft space! What are your go-to quick holiday projects? I would love to hear about them or better yet see them- so if you've created some holiday crafts be sure to link them up in the comments so we can be inspired by you!

Now it's WINNER time for last month's Thanksgiving project Studio Calico giveaway.  We only had a couple of ladies actually link up their fall projects, and I appreicate both of them for playing along but unfortunately I only have 1 prize pack. So my 9yoa son and I did a very scientific drawing for the winner...I just wrote the names down on a piece of  paper and he picked randomly...So Congrats....
AJ please email at ngj9600 at yahoo dot com by next Friday, December 16  so that I can get your Studio Calico goodies mailed out to you ASAP! Again, thank you ladies for taking the time to read and comment on the posts! Have a beautiful and safe holiday season!
