A few days later friend told me about an advent calendar on the blog Homemade By Jill. It's amazing and beautiful but a little out of my league. I don't have those kind of sewing skills. I love making things with my hands, and especially love things I can make with cute paper, so I knew I wanted to make an advent calendar. I searched Etsy for ideas and I found one that looked very doable and cute. I enlisted two of my friends to make them with me this past Saturday. Not only was it a great day cutting and gluing, but our husbands were good sports about it and watched the babies.
Can I say I LOVE my advent calendar?! I am extremely happy with it. I couldn't have done it without the Cricut machine and without Jonathan's help with Macy. I worked on it pretty much all day Saturday and a little bit on Sunday. I wanted it to be perfect so I would want to keep it for a long time.
And here it is in all it's glory...
It's a mini muffin tin with magnet covering the holes. I plan to place candy, scriptures, stories, etc. inside.
I can't pick a favorite number, I love them all, but these two are Jonathan's favorite.
I love, love, love it!
