The gorgeous papers, clothespins, number stickers, and cute twine are all from Amazon, and I stuffed the calendar with everything from candy to wax lips to Hot Wheels cars to gift cards. My one warning? Make sure you have a solid way of securing it to the wall…this one fell down four or five times before the Boy finally helped me secure it with about two pounds of tape. Goodbye, wall paint. Happy Holidays!
Apologies for the lack of posting this month, as it turns out, the holiday season is rather busy! It’s fun-busy, however, so you’ll get no complaining from me (or at least, only bemused cheerful complaining). The family is gathering to celebrate here on the rainy Eastern Coast, and I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
Below, a few pictures of the advent calendar I made for the Boy this year, thanks to some guidance from A Beautiful Mess.
