What's Up Wednesday

Whew, another week down!!! Anyone getting excited? I am very excited that I am almost ready for Advent!!! Here is the Advent Paper Chain print off as promised!!! Note that pages 1-10 are if you are doing a single color and 11-20 are designed to be done in two colors. I had a time with figuring out how to correctly print front and back on my printer so make sure you allow yourself a little extra time to figure that out. The dates go on one side and the scriptures go on the flip side. So for the single color you will print off page 1 which has scriptures numbered 1-6. Then you will flip your paper how ever you need to for your printer to print off pg 6 which has the devotions for Dec 1st-6th. And to make things even easier for you I'm going to list the items you need for the devotion part, you just might have most of these items around your house!!! I'm going to put my items in see through gift bags and place an index card with the correct number in the front to kinda hide the item inside. I've not gotten to that yet, so you will have to come back next week if you want to take a look at how we are doing it. This year it is all about easy easy easy!!! Okay here is that list!!!! BEFORE we go any further, I want to give credit where credit is due!!!
