My family usually just buys the cardboard advent calendar at the grocery store every year, with the little chocolates. Well this year I decided that I wanted to do something a little more contemporary and creative. Advent calendars are fun, especially if you have little kids, like mine who are constantly asking, "how many more days until (insert holiday or major event here)?"
Of course I turned to Pinterest first for inspiration. You can visit my Advent Calendar Board here.
|I started out by recycling this adorable desktop calendar that I got as a gift last year from Jack and Lulu. I just loved the color scheme and the fact that the numbers were already embossed, would save me some time.|
