I found what I think is a really
fun way to count
down to Christmas.
I think this was a Martha Stewart idea
and I just had to copy it.
I'm sorry I didn't post this sooner but
I couldn't let certain people see it until
they could open it on December 1.
I did a set for my sister and brother in law,
one for TJ and of course, one for Becky.
These are old fashioned candy bags
each labeled 1-24 and each
containing a little gift or treat for the day.
Those are little bitty clothes pins holding them
to the line.
This advent calendar was given
to me last year for Christmas
and I am just crazy about it!
In fact, I ended up ordering
three of them for a friend
that wants one and to gift 2
and 2 more for me to gift
(one back to my sister).
It has VERY strong magnets on the back
and stays on the refrigerator perfectly.
Each magnet is a cookie!
While trying to find a place
to order this,
I learned a lot of people
make their own with their own
cookie sheets. That would be fun too!
Do you have a special way to count
down to Christmas?
