Chalkboard Clipboard Advent Countdown

Merry Christmas, friends! I'm so in the holiday spirit... I just love this time of year! 

It's kind of freaking me out, though, that the season is so short this year. EEK! I definitely have to be on the ball with all the holiday activities I'd like to do before Christmas. I made us a countdown calendar in order to keep up with the days.

First, I got a mini clipboard from Office Depot. I love the smaller size of these. They are just cute! 

Then I painted it with chalkboard paint and seasoned it.

I painted with white paint the "Days 'til Christmas", and then decorated with the Ribbon Candy kit.  The little white frame made a perfect spot for my chalk numbers to go, and the epoxy dots added just enough "pop" for it. I also loved how the Jolly rhinestone fit perfectly on the clip! A gathering of ribbons, sparkly Dollar Tree filler, and tulle cover the logo on the clip, and the little reindeer sticker adds a perfect final touch.
