I've always loved Advent calendars and have been looking for one for our family for the past few years but hadn't found one that I really liked. Then I saw this one in my Pottery Barn Kids catalogue this year. I really liked it but was not about to spend $69 to get it!
So, I made my own version of it!
It only cost about $14 and 4 hours to make, and I loved every minute of it - especially those when the boys were either asleep or playing with their daddy!
As if the satisfaction of being creative and crafty wasn't already enough, you should have seen Malachi's excitement when I explained to him how it all works! Now I just have to fill in the rest of the empty pockets!
