The Advent Memory Game

There  is a game my sister Lili made up. She took an advent calendar and put in a bunch of stuff and the kids had to match up the boxes until they won something, like a memory game. The kids, being in their late teens and early 20's were very uninterested, winning silly putty and chapstick, until one of them  matched up two $20's they perked up.

So this Christmas we are doing the same, my niece and nephew from up north  are unfamiliar with the game, I bet they will like it.

I had purchased this box about 20 years ago and was waiting for a vision, then after playing the game and being a big fan of MacKenzie- Childs I decided to use patterns and colors and I like the way it came out.

This is the box in progress...

Now I want to do a painting for Emilys room, it has wonderful light and I got coverlets that have great colors, my sister has a painting I love,  the the artist used day glow paint and it serves as a night light, I am thinking textures and colors and patterns,  so my mind is working... on to the next project.
