let the countdown begin!

Today starts the countdown {surge of excitement… and two little boys… running through my house this morning}! And although my advent calendar is all set to go, I just couldn’t resist sharing a few of my favorite ones from some super crafty ladies. There’s still time!

I’m just completely in LOVE with this first idea from The Painter Family (via Tip Junkie). It will take a little time finding the right boxes and measuring to make sure everything fits, but how lovely the outcome is. I’m saving this idea for next November!

And Infarrantly Creative thought up this little treasure! Wow what you can do with a few items from the dollar store and a drill. My only fear… I would find all the buckets empty and little ones with tummy aches. If we make one of these fun calendars I’ll have to fill one bucket at a time. {smirk}
