Advent Calendar Extravaganza with Taheerah Atchia


Hello and Welcome! - It's Christmas Eve and here at Waltzingmouse Stamps we are super thrilled to be popping up behind door 24 on Taheerah's terrific Advent Calendar today!


Advent Calendar Extravaganza is -the- festive event of the season! This ‘hop with a twist’ was dreamed up by Taheerah Atchia and features surprise destinations each day! Joining in the fun with Taheerah are over 60 special guests - each serving up some fantastic Christmas inspiration! Just like an Advent Calendar, you’ll never know where you’re going to be visiting next until you ‘open the door’!

And that’s not all! With 25 *amazing* sponsors taking part as well, your crafty wish list is bound to get a boost with a chance to win a prize EVERY SINGLE DAY!!

Join in the fun every day at taheerah-atchia.com to see what special surprises wait behind the door!



"Twas the Night before Christmas and all through the house, not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse!" I thought that a bunch of adorable sugar fondant mice would make a neat last moment gift - taking literally seconds to create if you cheat with ready roll fondant and almonds for ears! I'm all about fast! The perfect match for a bunch of mice was a tag made using the Waltzingmouse Stamps 'Twas the night set. Currently discontinued, I'm thinking about bringing it back - I've had a few requests! Check with Taheerah for prize details and GOOD LUCK!


Off to herd this lot into a gift Box...
MERRY CHRISTMAS everyone!!

  3. Like the window scene on the card & the mice fondant. Saw a quick appetizer shaped to be a reindeer to make using cheese in small triangle pkgs, pretzel ears, raisins for eyes & raspberry for nose.
