I hope your Thanksgiving was wonderful!
I hope Black Friday left you with
10 bags of treasures
zero baggie black eyes.
How did all of your Thanksgiving cooking go?
I had my fingers crossed for all of us….
Thanksgiving is a bad time for a kitchen blunder, isn’t it?
Sure hope you didn’t have any!
My little family and I ate dinner with MyHandsomeHusbands side of the family. Later in the evening we spent some time at my Mom’s house visiting with my parents and siblings.
It was really a great day!
When I arrived at my Mom’s house, there was the cutest little present waiting there for me.
I thought some of you might like seeing it,
as I know some of you are crafty
and like to make little things like this!
My very wonderful, extremely kind, thoughtful, and crafty sister Jen made this cute little advent calendar for me.
To make the calendar she used a 24 count mini muffin tin.
Then she decorated some card stock with scrap book paper and cute little do daws. She put some sticky magnets (you can buy in a roll) along the back of each piece of card stock.
(can you tell I’m more of a cooker than a crafter….I don’t even know what to call all of these supplies!)
Then she filled each little muffin holder with treats, and covered them with the magnetized card stocky,
crafty paper looking like things. Cute!
Crafty and cute….
I love how she made all of the squares different.
All original looking and clever.
I think #10 is my favorite.
#9 is pretty darn cute as well. I’m a sucker for swirly, pretty…
Another great thing about this advent calendar is, it can be saved and used from year to year.
I also love that you get to keep the mini muffin tin when you are done using it as an advent calendar.
Thanks to Jen Crafts It Up!
You are one in a million!
I can’t wait to start using it. As soon as we finished eating our turkey dinner MyLittleTwinBoys started asking me if Christmas was tomorrow. December lasts a long old time when you are 4 years old.
Have a great weekend everyone!
