Let the count down begin.

I love Advent calendars. 

I made the first one years ago.  I can't even remember how long.  Sometime in the mid 1990's.  The weight of the candy is pulling the one side in so it looks crooked.  I tie on the candy every year and the girls take turns cutting it off.  Buttercup will get most of the turns. 


This second one is more recent.  I can't figure out why I didn't put a date on it.  That's not like me.  I stitched it maybe 4 years ago.  It's by JBW Designs.  Each day a new picture gets added until it's full.  I guess you could go the other way and remove one each day. 

Off to get groceries then to take The Boy Wonder to the orthodontist.
