The Event Advent

It’s DECEMBER!!!

When did that happen?

I mean Wahoooooo!

Time to get in gear – it’s Holiday time!

1st off – our Event-Advent Calendar.


I made 8 of these last year to give as gifts.

All it is is a giant sheet of thick felt (from the fabric store), with paper rectangles for pockets.


I sewed the paper to the felt and added die-cut numbers to the front.  (I like to countdown to Christmas, so we start at 24)

I cut them with my Big Shot from self-adhesive sparkle foam, but you can also buy numbers at the dollar store that are already done.

I printed out the various events we like to do each year onto avery labels and then stuck them to die cut cards:

  I did get the cards laminated afterwards because I wanted this calendar to last for several years.

Add a ribbon for decoration and then carefully plot out your month.

I put the more involved events in pockets that would land on the weekend (like family skate or go sledding) and then easier ones for during the week (like make a snowman or make a craft ornament).

Once I’ve got it organized, I hang it up and the girls can pull an event out of a pocket each morning!

They LOVE it!


What’s on for tonight you ask?


Funny how that worked out eh?



(This one makes me think of you Cher!)


Have a great one!
