We have T-minus 48 days left until the launch of Shop Idyllwild. SO much to do, so little time but we did find time in all the hustle and creative bustle to make this great count down calendar counting down the days and events that need to happen before the official launch of our store (hopefully) on February 3rd, 2014. If you would like to see your hand crafted products in our inventory line up check out the Join Us page for more info. We will be posting bios and profiles of all our shop contributors as we get closer to launch.
Now onto the super simple (but time consuming calendar instructions. I designed the numbers using basic Microsoft Word skills, we don’t have a paper cutter (yet) so I spent days cutting them out by hand and then glued them to ivory card stock that we got at The Long Beach Center For Creative Reuse (Our FAVORITE craft store)Underneath each of the numbers we wrote a task that must be completed from the mundane to the exciting all the steps to get us up and running, but you could adapt this to any event you want to count down to.
We strung our numbers on a line in the hallway using cloths pins and there ya have it! Let the countdown begin and don’t forget to follow along! If you have any advice or tips we would love to hear them, leave them in the comments!
