12 Tags of 2015 - December - AND MORE!

Okay first off -- HOORAY! I DID IT! I made a tag every month and even managed to win one of the months. YES!

Okay, with that out of the way. Here is my tag along with adorable snowglobe mason jar thing that Tim inspired.

And for some of the obligatory close ups (click to enlarge):

But wait! There's more! I shared last month that I had a cool holiday idea and now I can share it! It was my take on a long distance advent calendar to help make December a little more fun for a special someone. I started by making a spreadsheet of 25 days featuring what I wanted the gift to be that day. Some of the gifts were stamped cards that had memories that we shared or a word search, Sudoku, or other activity. Some of them were actual gifts that I wrapped and stamped so that you knew which present to open when:
I also included a small letter that explained everything:
Then I had some fun making small labels that I made with a Martha Stewart Advent Stamp set that I bought on sale last year after the holidays. Added that to some fun envelopes and decorated the special last envelope:

Then I used some paper to make a holder thing for the envelopes so they weren't just laying all over the place.
And when it was all done, I tossed it all in a box and mailed it over just in time for December to start. There are still a few days left so I don't want to spoil the ending ;)
Now we all wait and see what 2016 brings! Thank you all for being great readers/commenters/etc. I appreciate all of you and can't wait to share future things with you!
