Advent Box Video

Well what a palaver this has been. The video we did yesterday was too large because I talked too much, so I did another one which is a bit ropey because Steven Speilberg was getting his haircut, so I was trying to video and do a demo at the same time. I have used a half completed box, so it looks a bit of a mess, ah well, you get the picture.....


I am pleased with the box though, Alex will love it, and I am trying to find tiny things to put in the boxes. Off to Sephora to see if they have any tiny samples they can give me, I have put in lip gloss, tiny mints, eye shadow applicators, cosmetic sponges, earrings..... fun, fun, fun.

Liked your video, but after reading what you wrote in your last post I was almost, no definitely, dissapointed not to get to see the first video! Have to admit reading it made me laugh out loud! Thanks for that.

Enfys, First let me say what a clever idea. I love it. I don't use matches, can you get these in the states? I want to give this a try.
Also, I love your accent. And I'm so glad you pronounced your name.
Thanks so much for the video. Shari

Well guess who is off to buy 48 matchboxes today (2 daughters and they maybe grown up but if I do one for one and not the other there will be trouble).

Love your video - thank you so much.

When I first saw your post about these Advent boxes I thought I will never be able to figure out how to make that. But the video is great! I know exactly what to do! I am hosting a table at my church's women's ministry dinner and I am thinking this just may be the "treat" to give the seven ladies at my table....let me know your thoughts!
