I *finally* got my Advent calendar done. I had purchased the little boxes last year after Christmas from an Etsy store. I bought the bulletin board at Crafts Direct and just spray painted the frame so it was black. (If you are making one yourself, a little tip I can give you is to slightly sandpaper the wood to take the "plastic" feeling finish off and then use a primer to give it a good base.)
I went through all of my scrap paper to find coordinating papers to use to cover the boxes, as well as grabbing my black stickers to make the numbers.
Here's a closer look at the boxes ...

It's hard to see the extras and bling that make them more fun, but trust me, it's CUTE in person!!
And here was the little card for today ... to make a snow angel family. Well, that didn't happen. Why?
NO SNOW!! Just fog!
Enough fog that school was 2 hours late this morning! CRAZY!
Hope you are enjoying your December so far. The holidays are busy, and I can't wait for all the magic that happens. :)
