Countdown Calendars

***And the winner is Lori of SeeLoriSew.  Thanks for playing along, everyone!***

There’s a cute new little book that came out this summer,

and I have a project in it!  A lucky Facebook won one that I offered on my CraftApple page, but I have one more to offer here on the blog.  I’ll pick a random winner from one of the first 10 commentors.  If I don’t get 10 comments, then I’ll pick someone on Monday night.  Sound fair?  Good.

My project was an advent calendar that I had made for my kids.  I reworked it and made an even cuter version for the book.  You can find it on p. 51.

Happy Countdowning!  Happy Downcounting!  Happy Counting Downward!  Count Happily Downward!  why is this so difficult??  Happy Countown Calendaring!  there we go, whew.

    What a great book – I have always wanted to make something like this for my kids… but at the rate I am going to find something cute (unless I win this book, hint hint) it might be for my grand kids (my kids are 12 and 8)
